FRANKFURT — August 4, 2015 — The largest Yarn Expo Autumn is to be held from October 13-15 this year with both the gross area and exhibitor number jumping to an all-time-high. “We relocated this year’s autumn fair to the new National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) as this venue allows us to occupy a broader space to accommodate more long-awaited yarn and fibre suppliers from around the world,” said Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.
This year’s autumn fair will take up 8,500 sqm gross area to house over 250 exhibitors, with both figures seeing an increase of over 70% compared to last year. Among all the exhibitors, almost 100 are from overseas, including from Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Switzerland, Uzbekistan and Vietnam. Meanwhile, over 150 domestic exhibitors brought by the China Cotton Textile Association and China Chemical Fiber Association will showcase sophisticated innovative fibres.
Synthetic fibres from China continue to be featured in three zones
Three special zones will be featured in the autumn fair to demonstrate synthetic fibres from Mainland China, including:
Advanced Cottony Polyester Fibre Zone
Featuring top imitation cotton suppliers in China, this zone will demonstrate how these fibres can be employed in sportswear, overalls and denim outfits. At the same time, visitors can also learn about the special properties of these fibres through a series of live demonstrations.
Renewable & Recycling Zone
As a biochemical fibre, renewable & recycling fibre, which combines merits of both cotton and silk, is well-known for its quick moisture absorption, cool-feeling and static resistance. Moreover, it is degradable and can be recycled, helping consumers make their spending more environmentally friendly. This zone, bringing all the country’s major renewable & recycling fibre suppliers under one roof, will showcase a full scope of this product ranging from raw materials to finished goods.
Functional Fibre Zone
Displaying mainly polyester, nylon, biochemical fibres, spandex, polypropylene fibres and acrylic fibres, this zone is the best destination to explore products made with the aforementioned functional fibres which feature moisture absorption, anti-static and UV resistance. More eco products, such as environmentally friendly dyed yarns, will also be another highlight of this zone.
Trend Forum: The Most Authoritative Platform To Learn About Fibre Trends
The Trend Forum, organised by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China, the China Chemical Fiber Association, Donghua University and the China Textile and Chemical Fiber Product Development Centre, will be the most authoritative platform for visitors to learn about upcoming fibre trends in China. With a theme of Innovation & Integration, next year’s trends will be elaborated in four sections:
- Fiber Technology
- Fiber Life
- Fiber Ecology
- Fiber Defense
Yarn Expo Autumn 2015 will be held concurrently with another four textile trade events, namely Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics 2015, China International Fashion Fair 2015 (CHIC), PH Value and Planet Textile. The fair will showcase 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 Autumn 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.
