Autumn editions of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo rescheduled

29 Jul 2022

In view of the evolving pandemic situation in Shanghai, the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo Autumn fairs will now take place from 21 – 23 October 2022 instead of their original August date. The fairs will be held at the same venue, National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) alongside CHIC and PH Value.

The organisers reached this conclusion after careful evaluation and discussion with stakeholders. Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained the decision: “In support of the government’s pandemic control measures and to ensure the safety of our participants, we have decided to defer the two fairs to a later date.”

Ms Wen continued: “On behalf of the organisers, I would like to express our thanks to all participants for their continued understanding and support. We look forward to providing an effective sourcing platform for the textile industry.”
