Nearly 180 yarn and fibre exhibitors will participate at the Yarn Expo Pavilion, a designated fibre and yarn exhibition area within Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2014 from 3 to 5 March 2014.
The fast growing Mainland Chinese market offers a vast number of opportunities for exhibitors as demand for these products is on the rise. During the first 11 months of 2013, China imported 1.93 million tons of cotton yarn worth USD6.27 billion, up over 40% from the previous year.
The pavilion, located in hall 4 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center, will feature the foremost yarn makers from Mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Korea, Pakistan, Portugal, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
A wide variety of cotton yarns and innovative man-made fibres featuring advanced technology will be on display. Concurrent fringe activities – including the Trend Area, a series of interactive seminars and fashion shows – will provide more insights into trends and market developments in the yarn industry.
Early March show date fits peak sourcing period
In addition to relocating from Beijing to Shanghai, Yarn Expo Pavilion will now be held in the first half of March, which is the peak spring sourcing time in China. This change of date and venue offers more opportunities for both exhibitors and visitors, and strengthen the fair as a leading platform in one of the world’s fastest growing marketplaces for fibres and yarns. The organisers are also confident that these strategic arrangements will provide a higher level of services for all exhibitors and visitors.
Yarn Expo Pavilion is organised 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.
