27.01.2015: Yarn Expo Spring 2015: Four concurrent trade events to bring synergy effects

The last Spring Edition saw over 200% more visitors coming to source from 233 exhibitors. “Last year’s significant jump in the visitor figure indicated that the yarn and fibre market in China is still resilient and full of potential. This fair is increasingly gaining popularity among trade buyers around the globe and this year will be no exception,” said Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.

Last year, over 20,212 buyers from 72 countries and regions visited the fair, while 46% of them were manufacturers. In order to capture the ever growing Chinese market, Indian and Pakistani exhibitors have already confirmed their participation at the upcoming Spring Edition. “Our Indian and Pakistani exhibitors like this fair as they can not only tap into the Chinese market here, but also connect with buyers from the Americas, Europe and other Asian countries,” Ms Wen continued.

Other than cotton yarn products from India and Pakistan, next year’s spring fair will feature the Chinese Fibre Hall once again to showcase innovative man-made products from the country, such as nylon, viscose filament, and renewable & recycled fibres. “We saw more interest from foreign buyers at the fair for our man-made fibres, like polyester,” the Sales Manager of Shenghong Group, a synthetic fibre supplier in the country, Jia Miao said at last year’s fair.

Moreover, the fair is increasingly known for providing the latest technologies in the innovative yarn section as visitors can gain inspiration and market guidance in the Trend Area and through a series of seminars. “I came to the fair to learn about the latest trends and I also participated in some of the seminar sessions to gain market insights. This fair is more than just a sourcing platform to us; it is also a place where we can learn about what will be in style next season,” Xiaohong Ge, Assistant Chief Engineer of De Zhou Heng Feng Group, commented at the previous Spring Edition.

Four concurrent trade events to bring synergy effects Held concurrently with Yarn Expo Spring 2015 are another four textile trade events, namely Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2015, PH Value 2015, China International Fashion Fair 2015 (CHIC) and the Planet Textile Conference. Together these five events will bring apparel fabrics, yarn and fibres, knitwear and other fashion garments under one roof, presenting a one-stop sourcing platform to the whole textile industry.

Yarn Expo showcases a wide spectrum of natural and blended yarns including cotton, wool, flax / regenerated flax, and man-made fibres and yarns as well as specialty products including elastic, and fancy and blended yarns.

Yarn Expo Spring is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; The Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; China Cotton Textile Association; China Wool Textile Association; China Chemical Fiber Association; China Bast & Leaf Fibres Textiles Association; and China Textile Information Centre.
