YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-01-28 15:00:00 – Shanghai

Yarn Expo Spring 2016, to see increase in exhibitor numbers as with still two months to go exhibitor number and the scale of the fair have surpassed the organizers’ expectation, and to accommodate the increased size, they have been obliged to increase the amount of available hall space by 40 percent. The fair will now occupy hall 5.1 of the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) from 16 – 18 March.

The gross area of 14,000 sqm is an expansion of 40 percent from the 2015 Spring Edition (10,000 sqm, 238 exhibitors).

Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Hong Kong) Ltd explained the reason for the relocation said that the strong momentum in the international yarn and fibre industry recently is reflected in the larger exhibitor number. Since sharing hall 7.2 with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics is no longer sufficient, they have shifted to hall 5.1 in order to cater to the increased demand. Due to this growth, the product range on offer will also be wider than in previous editions.

Nearly 250 exhibitors from 12 countries and regions, including China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Lithuania, Pakistan, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and Uzbekistan, have already confirmed their participation

The increase in exhibitor numbers is also reflected in the show's offering for the upcoming edition with the first appearance of a Fancy Yarn Zone to meet the demand for this growing trend. Around 15 companies will display a large selection of the latest innovative fancy yarns.

The application of fancy yarns has been expanding to wider areas, such as beddings, interior design, fashion garments, travel products and more. This new zone aims to help the industry discover more potential in this rapidly growing trend. Centralizing the exhibitors here allows both them and buyers to engage more effectively.

In addition, after a strong showing at the Autumn Edition, the China Cotton Textile Association and China Chemical Fiber Association will once again lead over 150 domestic exhibitors to present a wide spectrum of the latest innovative fibres in four zones:

Natural Cotton Yarn Zone - The focal point for the top imitation cotton suppliers in China, this zone is an extensive platform for visitors to source high count, new structure, differential, functional and coloured spun yarns.

Green Energy Zone - Dedicated to promoting products with eco-friendly design, materials and manufacture, major Chinese renewable & recycled fibre suppliers will feature a full scope of biochemical fibres, renewable & recycled fibres and undyed fibres in this zone.

Science and Technology Zone - This zone is where buyers can explore products made with functional fibres, smart fibres and digital application fibres which feature moisture absorption, anti-static and UV resistance properties.

Dynamic Lifestyle Zone - A diverse collection of new generation cotton-like polyester, fashionable nylon, polyurethane elastic fibres, cellulose & filament fibres, functional fibres, simulation fibres and more will be on display. Utilising the latest fibre technology, buyers will discover a wide range of products with comfortable touch and vibrant colours.
