March 2019

International trade fair Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics will be opening its doors from 12-14 March 2019 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai. Spanning a huge range of textile product categories from sustainability, smart fashion & textiles to digital printing, accessories and denim, over 3,000 exhibitors from 20 nations will be presenting their textile products and services to industry professionals. An inspiring fringe programme will round off the event’s varied offer and keep visitors up to date on the latest industry trends and certifications.

One of the fair’s highlights is the “All About Sustainability” area with Chinese and European companies like Lenzing, Foshan Chicley Textile and Oeko-Tex, which will be presenting their internationally recognised textile certifications. The choice of products ranges from natural materials like organic cotton and linen to regenerated cellulose fibres like Tencel and Eco Vero, down to environmentally friendly digital print fabrics. As well as sustainable materials, also awaiting the professional visitors are product presentations and seminars by renowned testing labs like Testex and the Hohenstein Textile Testing Institute. In the Functional Lab, for example, companies will be showcasing new functional textiles with innovative thermal properties, smart fabrics with silver fibres for biometric monitoring and safety textiles that offer electric and flash fire protection.

The trade fair is taking place together with Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles, Yarn Expo Spring, knitwear fair PH Value and the clothing fair CHIC. The spring edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry – CCPIT and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).
