More than 450 exhibitors are expected at the Yarn Expo Spring 2018, the leading trade event in the world’s biggest yarn and fibre consuming market. The three-day international event in Shanghai will keep on display a full spectrum of quality yarn and fibre products, such as natural and blended yarns, man-made fibres and yarns as well as specialty yarns.
In the past three years, Yarn Expo Spring has recorded significant growth in its exhibitor number and exhibition space. “Three years ago when we first entered China, there weren’t many people that knew about us, but, today, Birla is a well-known company with an increasing number of fashion garment brands appointing us to be the main supplier of their products,” said Peter Dong, senior manager of Birla Group’s marketing & business development, while sharing the experience during the last spring fair.
Nearly 400 domestic exhibitors will showcase a wide range of innovative fibres and yarns in Fancy Yarn Zone, Colourful Chemical Fibre Zone, Natural Cotton Zone, Quality Wool Zone and Green Linen Zone. Besides selling and sourcing at the trade fair, the participants can also attend a series of seminars and be a part of the fashion show.
“Yarn Expo offers an effective platform for us to meet our target buyers from around the world. We’ve met many Chinese and European buyers during the fair last year, and many of them placed orders with us,” said Abedin Ahmed Rizvi, manager (sales & marketing) of Indus Dyeing & Manufacturing from Pakistan.
Yarn Expo Spring 2018 will be held concurrently with four other textile trade fairs including Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition, PH Value and the China International Fashion Fair (CHIC).
Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, China Cotton Textile Association, China Wool Textile Association, China Chemical Fiber Association, China Bast & Leaf Fibres Textiles Association and China Textile Information Centre are organising the Yarn Expo Spring.
