From 15 – 17 October, more than 500 exhibitors from 14 countries & regions will showcase an unrivalled range of yarn and fibre products in hall 8.1 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, China. These exhibitors, as the largest gathering ever seen at the fair, are set to welcome a wide variety of visitors throughout the textile supply chain next week, solidifying the status of Yarn Expo as the leading first stop of every textile sourcing season. The fair will take place this edition alongside ITMA ASIA + CITME.
For those looking for the industry’s latest innovations, Yarn Expo Autumn is the place to be. The reliability of buyer quality has once again attracted big-name industry players – including PT Indo-Rama, Chemtax, Shandong Ruyi, Jiangsu Shenghong and Jilin Chemical Fiber Group – who choose the fair as a platform to debut new products each year. The fair’s product groups have also expanded in recent years, reflecting market needs, to now include all types of fibres and yarns.
Significant new business partnerships in the yarn & fibre industry are anticipated at the fair, with new international sourcing options this edition. Highlighted big-name newcomers at the fair include Safilin from France, offering premium linen products developed through the brand’s extensive history, and Italy’s Sinterama Asia who will show their range of 1,200 diverse chemical fibres and end uses.
One of the world’s largest single site spinners, Novetex Textiles from Hong Kong, will feature super soft merino in a wide range of colours, along with sustainable options in glen merino and 100% lamb’s wool. Another not-to-be-missed highlight is Parkdale Mills from the US, the world’s leading manufacturer of spun yarns, who will showcase cotton varieties, such as open end fibres, ring spun, air jet and vortex, in different blends.
