Trade Show: Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics

Strong signals

China, a country of superlatives. The same applies when it comes to fabrics. Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, one of the world’s largest trade fairs for apparel fabrics and accessories, will once again provide an impressive demonstration of this in March.

January 2019

Optimal location, perfect timing: from 12-14 March 2019, the spring edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics will open its doors at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai following Chinese New Year and thus at the strongest sourcing time for the Chinese apparel industry. The trade fair is constantly attracting increasing numbers of visitors (2018: 82,314 buyers from 104 countries and regions, 15% more than in 2017). Buyers include national and international clothing manufacturers, trading companies, designers, retailers and online stores.

The division into different product zones enables quick orientation. In addition to the countries, regions and group pavilions, cross-theme zones focus on the most important current trends. The ‘All About Sustainability’ section includes environmentally friendly products, technologies and services, the ‘Digital Printing Zone’ is all about printing technologies, including live demonstrations, and the ‘Functional Lab’ focuses on innovative fabrics for athleisure, activewear, lingerie and sportswear. The ‘Premium Wool Zone’ is the best place to source high-end wool, ‘SalonEurope’ a hub for high-quality fabrics from various European exhibitors and ‘Verve for Design’ presents exclusive prints by designers and studios from Asia, Europe and the USA. Anyone looking for denim fabrics and trends in accessories will find what they are looking for in the ‘Beyond Denim’ and ‘Accessoires Vision’ zones. Visitors can expect a total of 160,000 square metres full of trends and innovations.  

Synergies are also created by the trade fairs Intertextile Shanghai Home Fabrics, Yarn Expo Spring, CHIC and PH Value, which take place at the same time.
