Yarn Expo Autumn

 

China International Trade Fair for Fibres and Yarns, Shanghai International Convention Centre, 21 - 23 October 2008

Specialised show provides yarn and fibre producers with an ideal trade venue

Yarn & fibre imports to China on the rise

Major textile trade week in Shanghai in October 2008

The speciality textile yarn and fibre trade event Yarn Expo Autumn is set for 21 - 23 October 2008 at the Shanghai International Convention Centre, Shanghai, China. Yarn Expo showcases yarn and fibre products from China and around the world, including natural, manmade, speciality and fancy varieties.

As an upstream segment of the production chain, the yarn and fibre industry requires a specialised trade event and Yarn Expo provides a convenient and ideal location for yarn and fibre producers to meet textile manufacturers directly. Yarn Expo Autumn 2007 attracted 3,700 visitors from 59 countries and regions.

Fibre and yarn are in high demand in China, as textile producers continue record output. For example, in the first three quarters of 2007, European imports of sliced polyester to China grew 140% while imports of wool and wool tops doubled. Wool top imports from both Japan and the United States jumped more than 200%, while chemical fibres imports from Australia grew 300%.

Taking advantage of a major textile trade destination

During Yarn Expo, thousands of textile manufacturers will be in the Shanghai to attend Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, one of the largest apparel textile trade events in the world. Exhibitors at that show - more than 2,000 textile manufacturers - will find Yarn Expo a convenient nearby destination for sourcing their yarns and fibres. A free shuttle bus will connect the two events.

Yarn Expo features natural fibres and yarns, including cotton, wool, silk and linen/ramie; regenerated and synthetic man-made fibres and yarns; specialty products; elastic, fancy and blended yarns and computer-related services.

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