One of the most important annual events in the Asian yarn and fibre industry, ‘Yarn Expo Autumn 2016’ is set to return this week from 11th to 13th October at National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, with a record number of exhibitors and exhibition space.
“Following on from the strong business sentiment about the yarn and fibre industry at the spring fair in March, we are just as optimistic for this edition as well given the exhibitor number has risen once again to a new record for the fair,” Ms Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd said.
That exhibitor number rises from 258 in 2015 to over 270 this year, and in order to accommodate the increase in participants from 12 countries and regions – including Mainland China, Hong Kong, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Thailand, the US, Uzbekistan and Vietnam – the exhibition area has expanded by 35 per cent to 11,500 sqm.
Yarn Expo has long been renowned for its product diversity, with a wide range of exhibitors from both established yarn and fibre producing countries as well as emerging producers. Among these are the India pavilion and Pakistan zone, with the former consisting of over 50 companies and the latter more than 20 exhibitors showcasing competitively priced, high quality cotton yarns.
