New pavilions covering 160,000 sqm at Intertextile Shanghai Spring Edition

Worldwide textile suppliers and buyers, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics are preparing for the next Spring Edition, to be held from 12 – 14 March 2019 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai. Exhibitors will fill six halls at the NECC, covering an area of 160,000 sqm. To further ease the sourcing process, the Intertextile product zones will return, with products organised into easy-to-navigate display areas.

Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2019 is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Textile Information Centre.

Following a successful year of sourcing at the two editions of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics in 2018, the industry again looks to the fair for future trends, leading innovations and long lasting partnerships. With steady growth in buyer numbers seen each year at Intertextile Apparel (2018: 82,314 buyers from 104 countries & regions, a 15% increase from 2017), exhibitors can be confident in the fair’s ability to attract a wide range of quality visitors.

The fair’s timing, after Chinese New Year, will maximise opportunities from the strongest sourcing time of the Chinese apparel industry. As well as being located in the ideal place to access the China market, the fair consistently attracts a steady flow of international visitors. Last year’s Spring Edition saw the top 10 visiting countries & regions include fashion-forward buyers from destinations such as Italy, Japan, Korea, the UK and the US. Buyer natures ranged from garment manufacturers, trading companies, designers, retailers, e-commerce stores and more – providing unparalleled opportunities across the textile supply chain.

The Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Fabrics, Yarn Expo Spring, CHIC and PH Value will accompany Intertextile Apparel for an all-around business platform, conveniently located in one of the world’s most promising consumer markets. Meanwhile, a series of seminars and panel discussions will offer expert industry insight, while the Intertextile Directions Trend Forum will prompt the Spring / Summer 2020 sourcing season.
