Record Exhibitor and Visitor Numbers at Yarn Expo Autumn
Yarn Expo Autumn concluded with new records this year for both exhibitors and visitors. Nearly 150 suppliers from 13 countries and regions exhibited their products at the event, which was up by 50%. While the number of buyers increased by 25% to more than 6,000 buyers attending during the three-day event.
Yarn Expo Autumn was held from 21st to 23rd October 2013 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) and organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT, China Cotton Textile Association, China Wool Textile Association, China Chemical Fibre Association, China Bast & Leaf Fibres Textiles Association, and China Textile Information Centre. The organisers noted the increase in exhibitors was not only due to the new suppliers from Italy, Korea, Lithuania, Sri Lanka and Turkey, but also the increase in Indian and Pakistani suppliers.
The next edition of the event, spring edition of Yarn Expo, will be held in Shanghai, instead of Beijing, and it will be located within Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, renamed to Yarn Expo Zone. The event will take place at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center from 3rd to 5th March 2014.
