31/03/2017 – Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Spring Edition 2017 — auf Deutsch lesen
Buyers affirm: unbeatable sourcing platform in the global industry
Posting around 71,000 visitors from 103 countries and regions of the world, the organisers were visibly delighted with the outcome of the spring event.
The National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai is more than just huge and describing it is difficult to put into words. In fact, you need to have seen it with your own eyes to really appreciate the sheer size of the site. It certainly begs the question whether such dimensions are really necessary?
Even the monumental stairway into the exhibition centre makes the visitor feel small and insignificant but perhaps that is the intention! Anyway, "one run, all done", as they say. This advertising slogan coined by a large German supermarket chain also applies to Intertextile, whose 3341 exhibitors leave no wish unfulfilled, offering every kind of fabric and trimming imaginable. Divided into seven halls and clearly structured product groups, Intertextile presented itself to its trade buyers as a smoothly organised trade show for apparel fabrics. Having said that, it is almost impossible to cover all the ground in just three days, especially given that the other exhibition halls were hosting the Yarn Expo (fibres and yarns), PH Value (knitting), Intertextile Home Textiles (home textiles) and CHIC (fashion) at the same time. Talking to textile network, Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager Messe Frankfurt (HK) AG, stated: "Intertextile is one of the most important events for the global textile market. Its standing has once again been corroborated by the strong business results for both exhibitors and buyers. We’re thrilled with the response and the high number of new business deals struck during the three-day event.”
