The apparel fabric and accessory industry’s most comprehensive trade fair for the spring/summer season returns this March, when over 3,000 exhibitors are expected in Shanghai from 15 – 17 March for the Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics. Reflecting the fair’s leading status in the industry as well as strong growth in certain product areas in the domestic market, an extra hall will be occupied bringing the total used to seven. In particular, an increased number of ladieswear and accessories exhibitors, and to a lesser extent functional fabrics suppliers, will feature at this edition. Four concurrent textile fairs will occupy another seven halls, providing unrivalled sourcing options for buyers from around the world.
“We have been pleased with the response so far from both our existing exhibitors as well as new participants for this edition,” Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained. “They recognise that this fair is a place where business is still conducted over the three days, and is unrivalled in its scale and coverage of the industry, thus providing exhibitors with new opportunities at each edition. Particularly for the Spring Edition, it is the ideal industry event to reach Chinese buyers, including a number of the biggest brands.” These brands include the likes of Bosideng, Eral, Handu, JNBY, K-Boxing and Semir. In addition to domestic buyers, visitors from around 100 countries and regions can be expected at the 2017 edition.
In addition to the wide range of apparel fabrics and accessories on offer at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, four other textile fairs occur concurrently in the same venue: Yarn Expo Spring (hall 5.1), Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition (hall 4.2), CHIC (halls 1, 2, 3 & 4.1) and PH Value (hall 3). Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2017 is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Textile Information Centre.
