Yarn Expo Autumn Edition in Shanghai Jumps 70 Percent in Space
The largest Yarn Expo Autumn is to be held Oct. 13-15 this year, with both the gross area and exhibitor number jumping to an all-time high.
“We relocated this year’s autumn fair to the new National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) as this venue allows us to occupy a broader space to accommodate more long-awaited yarn and fibre suppliers from around the world,” said Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.
This year’s autumn fair will take up 8,500 square meters gross area to house more than 250 exhibitors, with both figures seeing an increase of more than 70 percent, compared with last year.
Among all the exhibitors, almost 100 are from overseas, including from Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Switzerland, Uzbekistan and Vietnam. Meanwhile, 150-plus domestic exhibitors brought by the China Cotton Textile Association and China Chemical Fiber Association will showcase sophisticated innovative fibres.
The Trend Forum, organized by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China, the China Chemical Fiber Association, Donghua University and the China Textile and Chemical Fiber Product Development Centre, will be the most authoritative platform for visitors to learn about upcoming fibre trends in China.
With a theme of Innovation & Integration, next year’s trends will be elaborated in four sections Fiber Technology, Fiber Life, Fiber Ecology and Fiber Defense.
Yarn Expo Autumn 2015 will be held concurrently with another four textile trade events, namely Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics 2015, China International Fashion Fair 2015 (CHIC), PH Value and Planet Textile.
The fair will showcase a wide spectrum of natural and blended yarns including cotton, wool, flax / regenerated flax, and man-made fibres and yarns as well as specialty products including elastic, and fancy and blended yarns.
Yarn Expo Autumn is organized by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; The Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; China Cotton Textile Association; China Wool Textile Association; China Chemical Fiber Association; China Bast & Leaf Fibres Textiles Association; and China Textile Information Centre.
