Meeting in Shanghai: the retail industry worldwide has been put to the test by the coronavirus pandemic, but calm is now being restored. In China especially, the market is recovering quickly and has now recorded nine straight months of retail sales growth. This means that industry professionals can meet again face-to-face: from 25 to 27 August 2021, exhibitors and interested parties will meet at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai for the autumn edition of Intertextile Home Textiles. Networking on-site and online: in addition to the physical event, suppliers will have options to showcase their products online. Suppliers who can’t travel to Shanghai due to travel restrictions or safety concerns can still exhibit their products in one of two ways: on-site staffers can set up and oversee display booths on their behalf and collect the contact details of interested parties; alternatively, the Intertextile Gallery offers a shared exhibition space for overseas suppliers.
Responding to the trend: retail sales are increasingly taking place on digital platforms and as a result, Intertextile is introducing a new cross-border E-commerce Zone. This area will include e-commerce platforms, warehousing and distribution providers, and electronic payment companies. The zone will also feature a seminar programme focused on e-commerce, allowing exhibitors to find out more about the new channels and learn about retail sales in overseas markets.
The autumn edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles 2021 will take place in the National Exhibition and Convention Center from 25 to 27 August alongside Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Autumn, Yarn Expo Autumn, PH Value and CHIC.
