Uniting the industry in times like these is a difficult but essential matter. Only last March, interested parties were able to exchange views and information – both on site in Shanghai and virtually on an online platform. Now planning is already underway for the trade show’s coming events. The industry will meet again at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai from 25th to 27th August 2021. Due to high demand, Messe Frankfurt launched a second summer event, which took place in July in Shenzhen. This year, the event will move to the winter, when buyers, exhibitors and experts can get together at Shenzhen’s World Exhibition and Convention Center from 3rd to 5th November, to discuss the latest developments in the market. Messe Frankfurt is reacting to requests from the industry for an all-year-round networking event.

“Amid the pandemic, Yarn Expo was able to re-connect the industry by successfully holding two fairs in Shenzhen and Shanghai in the second half of 2020,” said Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “Yarn Expo Spring 2021 also wrapped up successfully in March, and we look forward to sustaining this momentum with the two editions of Yarn Expo that are scheduled to take place in the second half of 2021. As we witness the continuing market recovery and the return to growth in China, we adjusted our fair calendar by moving the Shenzhen edition from July to November to meet industry demands all year round. For participants, who will not be able to travel to Shenzhen, the online platform, match-making tools, online exhibitions and instant-messaging programmes will continue to be an alternative.

The next Yarn Expo will run alongside the autumn edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, one of the biggest trade shows for clothing fabrics worldwide. At the same time and venue, CHIC and PH Value will offer insights into the world of home textiles.
