Now in October instead of September: Yarn Expo Autumn, Asia’s leading trade platform for the yarn and fibre industry, has been postponed until 15-17 October 2018. This means that it is now taking place at the same time as the combined ITMA ASIA + CITME fair, the Asian International Exhibition of Textile Machinery, which is running for two extra days until 19 October; and no longer at the same time as Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Autumn Edition. The reason for the rescheduling is that three halls need to be renovated for the CIIE, China International Import Expo, a new trade fair organised by the government that will take place in November at the National Exhibition and Congress Centre.
“This unavailability of the halls was unforeseen,” explained Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, “but after being informed by the venue, we immediately assessed all possible alternatives for hosting the fair. While it is unfortunate that for this edition it will not be taking place concurrently with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, we are confident that the same strong business results can still
be achieved alongside ITMA ASIA + CITME. With over 1,600 textile machinery manufacturers and some 100,000 trade buyers from different textile sectors taking part in ITMA ASIA + CITME, Yarn Expo exhibitors will have abundant opportunities to meet buyers of apparel fabrics and home textiles, as well as garment manufacturers.”
From cotton to wool and flax; from elasticated to fancy – at Yarn Expo Autumn, quality suppliers from around the world will be showcasing natural and blended yarns and speciality products. Last year’s autumn edition attracted 493 exhibitors from 13 countries and regions and 17,185 professional buyers from 84 countries and regions. The trade fair is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT.
