04/10/2022 – Intertextile Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo Shanghai and Shenzen
Autumn editions postponed to next year
Originally scheduled to take place in October and November 2022, the Autumn fairs in Shanghai and Shenzen will now be postponed to next year.
Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo will now be merged with next year’s spring editions, to be held from 8 – 10 March 2023. The decision is in support of the ongoing pandemic control measures in Shanghai, while the move will also integrate industry resources more efficiently and provide more certainty to exhibitors in their planning.
“We know how important the Autumn sourcing season is for textile buyers and suppliers, but as a responsible trade fair organiser, we hold a commitment both to our participants and the local authorities that extends beyond the fairground,” explains Ms Wilmet Shea, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “Given the ongoing pandemic control measures in Shanghai, and after consultations with key stakeholders, we have decided that deferring the Autumn fairs to next Spring is the most appropriate arrangement for the textile industry.”

In support of pandemic control measures in Shenzhen, which has recently seen an uptick in Covid-19 cases, the two fairs, Intertextile Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo, have been deferred to 2023. The fairs were originally due to take place concurrently from 2 – 4 November 2022 at the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center.
“This was an extremely difficult decision to make, particularly given the amount of effort we have exerted to hold the November fairs successfully,” explains Ms Wilmet Shea, Deputy General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “However, with Shenzhen continuing to enforce strict pandemic containment measures, we have a duty both to support the local authorities as well as to ensure that participants can plan their arrangements with certainty.”
Ms Shea adds: “Given the challenges facing the textile industry at present, we know how important both fairs are in supporting business growth, particularly in the high potential Greater Bay Area. We are therefore working in close contact with the venue to find new dates next year for Intertextile Shenzhen Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo Shenzhen to return. In the meantime we are grateful for the support and understanding of all those involved.”
