China has been playing an increasingly important role in the global yarn and fibre industry in recent years, not only as a strong buyer but also a high-quality supplier that is looking to export abroad. As a result, a significantly higher number of Chinese exhibitors will feature at next month’s Yarn Expo Spring including some of the industry’s biggest names, reflecting the fair’s leading position in the country.
The next edition of the Yarn Expo trade fair will take place from 15-17 March at the Shanghai National Exhibition and Convention Centre, China. Over 275 domestic exhibitors have already confirmed their participation at the fair. Together with the international exhibitors from 10 countries and regions, the fair is expected to host over 360 exhibitors.
Domestic exhibitors will showcase a diverse selection of innovative yarns and fibres, such as nylon, viscose filament, renewable and recycled fibres, and more under five distinctive display zones:
Fancy Yarn Zone will feature nearly 50 exhibitors, including some leading suppliers like Dongguan Jiancheng Textile, Hangzhou Hengniu Fancy Yarn, Jiangyin Haoqiang Textile, Yiwu Heny Imp.Exp, and Zhejiang Longyou Chaobao Textile, who will bring together the latest collections of creative and trendy fancy yarns.
Natural Cotton Zone, with around 100 of China’s top cotton yarn suppliers, will exhibit high-end cotton yarns, as well as new imitation varieties, such as vortex spinning and differentiated yarns. In addition, four regional pavilions from Henan, Fujian Changle, Jiangxi and Xinjiang can also be found here.
Colourful Chemical Zone will feature four theme areas – China Fibre Trend Area 2017-18, Ecology & Functional Area, Fashion & Technology Area, and Green & Eco-friendly Area, which will host the foremost Chinese fibre brands with a wide spectrum of innovative and eco-friendly low carbon fibres.
