A new record is likely to be made when around 435 exhibitors from more than ten countries and regions including China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Vietnam converge in Shanghai for the Yarn Expo Spring. The exhibitors will showcase a full spectrum of quality and innovative yarn and fibre products.
Together with Yarn Expo Spring 2018, four other trade fairs are held concurrently during March 14-16 in the same venue covering the whole textile industry from yarns to fashion: Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition, PH Value and the China International Fashion Fair (CHIC).
Suppliers from Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam as well as leading Chinese companies will showcase their innovative products such as fancy, metallic and stretch yarns under the category of synthetic and specialty yarns. There will be an enlarged Fancy Yarn Zone featuring a number of well-known domestic enterprises with the latest innovations.
India and Pakistan Zones, exhibitors from Uzbekistan and Chinese suppliers in the Natural Cotton Zone will present a wide selection of high-quality cotton yarns. The Quality Wool Zone will include domestic wool products. Colourful Chemical Fibre and Green Linen Zones will offer innovative and eco-friendly sourcing options. The largest producer of viscose fibre in China, Sateri will feature local mills showcasing skin-friendly hygiene options made from Sateri’s products.
The Expo will also have a fashion show, Trend Area and a series of seminars to reveal the latest market trends and insights.
Several new exhibitors are expected at the show. For example, HJ Lite (Korea), which produces retro reflective yarn for weaving, knitting, and sewing will showcase its new products. Rather than applying reflective tape on safety wear, for example, manufacturers can apply this yarn into their fabric. During the day, the reflective yarn appears as a decoration, and at night reflects light as a safety function. PT Daliatex Kusuma (Indonesia) will showcase MVS viscose, PV, polyester, nylon mono and mono multi filaments at the fair. The company claims their mono multifilaments are superior to others on the market due to the fact they are easier to warp.
