Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo 2022 moving to Ningbo

13 Jul 2022

In an effort to safeguard ongoing business development and support in-person interactions for the laundry textile care industry, the organisers have made the decision to move Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo (TXCA & CLE) 2022 to Ningbo. Originally scheduled to take place from 11 – 13 August at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, the 2022 fair will now be held from 28 – 30 September at the Ningbo International Conference & Exhibition Center.

The recent pandemic circumstances in Shanghai have caused uncertainties about holding large-scale events in the city. Putting participants’ safety the priority, and following discussions between the organisers and various stakeholders, the 2022 edition of TXCA & CLE will be moved to Ningbo. As the second largest city in Zhejiang province, and with convenient transportation facilities, Ningbo has the added benefit of a close proximity to Shanghai. Moreover, Ningbo International Conference & Exhibition Center is comprised of modern MICE infrastructure and surrounded by well-established hospitality and catering facilities, making the location is an ideal venue to host a large-scale event.

As the leading trade fair for the laundry and textile care industry in Asia, TXCA & CLE provides business openings across the supply chain, including machinery, systems and accessories, chemicals and consumables, digital and intelligent solutions, energy saving and environmental protection technologies, leather care products, rental services and more. With the 2021 edition postponed due to the pandemic, the textile care industry is eager to reconnect at TXCA & CLE this year. The fair will be pushed back to September to give fairgoers extra time to make the necessary arrangements for their successful participation at the new venue. The organisers will also comply with the local safety measures, and will extensively promote the fair to ensure another noteworthy edition.

TXCA & CLE is an annual event organised by the China Laundry Association and the China Light Industry Machinery Association, as well as Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and Unifair Exhibition Service Co Ltd.
