Trade Show: Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles

Gateway to the Chinese market

After almost two years, there are signs of a temporary end to the trade war between China and the US. Trade show Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles appeared unimpressed by the conflict at its past edition and will continue to offer top access to China’s home textile market.

An end to the punitive tariffs is in sight. China and the US plan to sign a treaty to end the trade war between the two superpowers at least in part. The home textile industry was hardly affected by the conflict between the world’s two biggest economies last year. Despite the economic uncertainties in China and abroad, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles was a success in 2019. For the 25th edition in September last year, 1147 exhibitors from 27 countries and regions and 35,390 visitors from 117 countries and regions travelled to the trade show in Shanghai.

These figures show how important the trade show is for the home textile industry. Because of the varied offer covering textiles, interior design, architecture and hospitality with home products like bed linen, sun protection and wall coverings, the trade show is a popular sourcing platform. The exhibitors’ portfolio includes state-of-the-art technologies like digital printing as well as trendy textile designs. “For us, Intertextile is the number one gateway to the Chinese market,” said Thomas Luys, sales manager at Belgian textile company Libeco-Lagae.

The autumn edition of the trade show will take place from 24th to 26th August 2020 in the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, presenting the new season’s fabrics.
