Trio of textile fairs rescheduled to end of March

In view of the easing of pandemic restriction policies in China, the Spring Editions of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, Yarn Expo and Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles have been moved to the new timeslot of 28 – 30 March 2023. This will allow both local and international fairgoers more time to prepare for their participation, with a higher industry turnout now expected at the three fairs. The fairs will still be located at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai where they were originally due to be held from 8 – 10 March.

Discussing the change of dates, Ms Wilmet Shea, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained: “After talking to our stakeholders, we believe adjusting the spring show dates to the end of March is the right move. It provides enough time for exhibitors and visitors from local and abroad to plan for the fairs and capitalise on the ample international business opportunities brought by the reopening of China’s border.”

Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained the decision: “In view of recent outbreaks in multiple provinces and cities in China, and to support the government’s pandemic control measures, the organisers of the fairs have decided to adjust the three spring shows by combining the Spring and Autumn Editions of Intertextile Apparel and Yarn Expo, and holding these concurrently with the Spring Edition of Intertextile Home. The decision is necessary to reduce the risk of transmission and to ensure the welfare of all our participants. We will keep in close communication with all parties involved and we look forward to providing an effective sourcing platform for the textile industry when it is safe to do so. As we continue to adapt during these challenging times, we’d like to express our thanks to all participants for their unwavering understanding and support.”

New dates for Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles and Yarn Expo

The Spring Editions of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles and Yarn Expo will now take place from 14 – 16 April 2022 instead of their original March date.

Auch in Japan startet die Messe Frankfurt wieder durch. Mit dem Formnext Forum Tokyo findet bis Freitag die erste physische Messe seit dem pandemiebedingten Lockdown im März statt. 29 führende Aussteller und 13 namhafte Redner geben im Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Trade Center spannende Einblicke in die technologischen Trends des 3D-Drucks, der sich infolge der SARS-CoV-2-Pandemie auch bei der kostensparenden Herstellung von Beatmungsgeräten bewährt hat.

Nächstes Highlight auf dem Frankfurter Messegelände ist die Hypermotion, auf der Experten vom 10. bis 12. November 2020 die Mobilität der Zukunft entwerfen. In einem Mix aus Messe, Konferenzen, Tech-Talks und Start-up-Pitches bringt die Hypermotion alle Verkehrsträger zusammen, um gemeinsam neue Geschäftsmodelle für Verkehr, Transport, Infrastruktur, Mobilität und Logistik zu entwickeln.

Keynote-Speaker auf der Hypermotion 2020 sind der Whistleblower Edward Snowden, der zum Thema „Datenschutz in Mobilität und Logistik nach Corona“ spricht, und der Bestseller-Autor Marc Elsberg.

Beim 6. Deutschen Mobilitätskongress im Rahmen der Hypermotion stehen der Klimawandel und aktuelle Fragen der Verkehrswirtschaft im Vordergrund. Das Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur fördert im Rahmen eines „Green City-Marktplatzes“ die wichtige Vernetzung zwischen Städten und Kommunen zum   „Sofortprogramm Saubere Luft 2017-2020“. Das BMVI ist auch in diesem Jahr wichtiger Partner und Schirmherr der Veranstaltung. Darüber hinaus werden das Land Hessen sowie der Rhein-Main-Verkehrs-verbund in Frankfurt vertreten sein. Neu in diesem Jahr: das „bfp-Fuhrparkforum“ mit dem Schwerpunkt Betriebliche Mobilität.

Neben der Hypermotion finden im laufenden Jahr auch Gastveranstaltungen wie z.B. die Discovery Art Fair oder die TrauDich in Frankfurt als physische Veranstaltungen auf dem Messegelände statt.

Die epidemische Situation in China entwickelt sich wieder positiv, die Shanghaier Börse zeigt einen Aufwärtstrend, der sich positiv auf die Unternehmen auswirkt.

CHIC, China International Fashion Fair, expandiert in den Süden Chinas. Vom 15. bis 17. Juli 2020 ist die Premiere der CHIC SHENZHEN im Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center geplant.

Chen Dapeng, Präsident von CHIC, China International Fashion Fair und China National Garment Association: „CHIC SHENZHEN ist seit langem geplant und kann angesichts der jetzt positiven Entwicklung in China umgesetzt werden. Hier liegt der Schwerpunkt auf den nationalen Mode-Herstellern und der bevölkerungsreichen, florierenden südchinesischen Einzelhandelslandschaft. CHIC SHANGHAI wird weiterhin international ausgerichtet sein."

Zusammen mit der Intertextile Shenzhen Apparel Fabrics und der Shenzhen Yarn Expo wird CHIC SHENZHEN eine Plattform mit dem Namen "Greater Bay Area International Textile and Apparel Expo" für die nationale Modeindustrie und den Modehandel in Südchina anbieten. Auf 100.000 qm werden sich die drei Messen präsentieren, für die CHIC SHENZHEN sind 30.000 qm reserviert. Gerechnet wird mit insgesamt 2.000 Ausstellern. Das Messegelände, gebaut auf dem Gelände des ehemaligen Flughafens der Stadt, umfasst aktuell 400.000 qm, nach Bauabschluss 500.000 qm.

Der Messestandort Shenzhen befindet sich in der Provinz Guangdong (Kanton), die über 114 Millionen Einwohner umfasst. Die Sonderwirtschaftszone Shenzhen, auch Chinas "Boomtown" genannt, hat heute ca. 15 Millionen Einwohner. Der Süden Chinas ist ein Ballungszentrum der chinesischen Modeindustrie und des Modehandels, zahlreiche Bekleidungscluster (Menswear, Womenswear, Childrenswear, Denim, Casualwear, Wedding) sind hier und in den angrenzenden Provinzen wie z.B. Fujian ansässig. Diese beiden Provinzen zusammen mit Jiangsu und Zhejiang sind für 75% der gesamten textilen Produktion in China verantwortlich.

Mit CHIC SHENZHEN bieten die Veranstalter der CHIC besonders der regionalen Modebranche ein zusätzliches Podium und in der bewährten Kombination der einzelnen Messeplattformen den Kunden die Möglichkeit eines "One-Stop-Shoppings" in Südchina.

Die Entscheidung des Nachholtermins der Märzveranstaltung der CHIC SHANGHAI steht noch aus und hängt von der weiteren Entwicklung der epidemischen Situation in China ab.

What’s more, almost 80% of exhibitors were returning from successful past editions, showing their support of the fair.

“Although Yarn Expo was unable to be held concurrently with Intertextile Apparel this year, more industry players recognise this fair as a top show for yarn and this is why the turnout remained very strong,” explained Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK). “Our product range was more diverse than ever as exhibitors increasingly see China as the ideal market to introduce their latest innovations. For example, this year we’ve welcomed premium French linen and advanced Italian chemical fibres. Yarn Expo is a platform that promises to gather all of the top suppliers under one roof for genuine buyers.”

With demand rising within the Chinese market for fancy & specialty yarns, suitable for stand-out fashion trends, the trade potential for this product category was high. Business for eco-friendly and natural yarns was also reported to remain steady this edition, reflected by the India Pavilion which increased in size by around 40% this year.

Chen Dapeng, Präsident der CHIC und Executive Vice President der China National Garment Association: „Die Konsumenten in China entwickeln sich rapide, `consumer upgrade´ ist das Stichwort, der chinesische Markt ist konsumentenorientiert, gefragt ist ein individueller junger Stil. Das Angebot muss sich an den Bedarf dieser Zielgruppe anpassen, die Industrie noch innovativer werden und sich auch den technologischen Herausforderungen stellen.“

CHIC Shanghai zeigt, dass der chinesische Markt den aktuellen Trends folgt und spiegelt es mit einem frischen jungen Design in einem visuellen Gesamtkonzept wider, das in Kooperation mit WGSN entwickelt wurde. Angesprochen werden die jungen trendsetzenden Verbraucher, Chinas treibende Kraft für das starke Wachstum im Einzelhandelsumsatz, der 2017 um 10.2% auf rund 5,7 Billionen US$ gestiegen ist. Laut einer BCG-Studie macht diese Zielgruppe 65% am Konsumanstieg in China aus, mit einer prognostizierten jährlichen 11%igen Wachstumsrate bis 2021. Der gesamte inländische Konsum trug zu nahezu 60% zur wirtschaftlichen Expansion des Landes im letzten Jahr bei.

Rege Kontaktanbahnungen und Ordertätigkeiten in allen Bereichen der CHIC

Die Aussteller des Designerbereiches IMPULSES, eines der Kernsegmente der CHIC, das die gesamte Nordhalle belegte, wie Hua Mu Shen, Shan Zi, Mood for Mode zeigten sich sehr zufrieden. Neben zahlreichen konkreten Kooperationsvereinbarungen wurden Order in hohen Summen getätigt. Die internationalen Aussteller im Bereich FASHION JOURNEY kamen aus Brasilien, Dänemark, Deutschland, Frankreich, China Hongkong, Indien, Italien – mit 40 Ausstellern wieder die größte europäische Beteiligung, Japan, Korea, Peru, Polen, Schweden, Spanien, China Taiwan, UK. Sie äußerten sich sehr positiv über ihre Messeteilnahme und sehen das Potential des chinesischen Marktes. Das Messeziel sind Kontaktanbahnungen, es fanden zahlreiche erfolgversprechende Kooperationsgespräche statt, die es nach der Messe gilt, intensiv nach zu verfolgen. Dennoch wurden auf der Messe auch hier Order geschrieben. Zum ersten Mal dabei war die Polish Investment and Trade Agency im Rahmen ihres nationalen Exportprogramms "go-to-brand". Auch polnische Designerbrands aus dem Schmuck- und Kindermodenbereich nahmen an dem Programm teil und stellten auf der CHIC aus.

Im Leder- und Pelzbereich HERITAGE präsentierte sich zum ersten Mal die International Fur Federation (IFF) mit internationalen Herstellern darunter die Auktionshäuser NAFA und SAGA. Die Türkei präsentierte sich erneut unter dem Schirm vom IDMIB / ITKIB mit zehn Firmen auf der CHIC. Für die nationalen Teilnehmer gruppiert in den Pavillons der jeweiligen chinesischen Provinzen ist die CHIC eine unerlässliche Business-Plattform, hier treffen sie regelmäßig ihre Einkäufer und haben auch dieses Mal wieder Order in hohen Summen verzeichnet.

Junge Marken wie Monkey King (nach dem Affenkönig aus dem klassischen chinesischen Roman Die Reise nach dem Westen), mit Shirts designt im Manga-Stil oder JPE, eine trendige Streetstyle-Marke, mit einem traditionellen chinesischen Drachen als Firmenmaskottchen, im Bereich CHIC YOUNG BLOOD haben mehr als 300 Kontakte mit konkreten Kooperationsabsichten auf der CHIC knüpfen können.

Im Accessoires-Bereich SECRET STARS sorgte u.a. die deutsche Marke LEONARDO für Furore. Trauben von Besuchern bildeten sich aus Interesse an der Schmuckkollektion auf dem Stand. Die Messeteilnahme hat die Erwartung der Firma weit übertroffen. Die junge Generation ist der Motor für den Modekonsum in China, so sehen es auch die Verantwortlichen der SEMIR-Gruppe und präsentieren mit ihrer Kidswear-Marke BALABALA auf der CHIC im KID'S PARADISE ihre Produktneuheiten und ihr Service-Angebot für die Kunden.Neue Technologien zeigte auf über 500 qm die HODO-Gruppe mit "unbemannten" Shops, "smart fitting rooms", "magic dressing mirrors". Weitere Innovationen waren "cloud shelves" oder "big screen data".

Service-Plattform CHIC

Das intensiv erweiterte Besuchermanagement, online wie offline, war ein zentraler Aspekt der Messe. Online über We Chat und die offizielle CHIC APP wurden mehr als 200.000 Besucheranfragen nach bestimmten Produktgruppen gepostet, von Ausstellerseite über 700.000 Produktinformationen hochgeladen. Reger Austausch bot der Buyer's Talk am zweiten Messetag zur Entwicklung des Einkaufssystems von Department Stores und Shopping Centern, Trendinformationen wurden im CHIC Buyers' Theme Salon ebenfalls am zweiten Messetag gegeben. Das VIP Buyers' Meeting hat internationale Marken mit interessierten Agenten und Distributoren zusammen gebracht. Ein Angebot, das von den Veranstaltern zukünftig ausgeweitet wird. „Wir besuchen die CHIC Shanghai jedes Mal, es ist eine sehr wichtige Plattform zur Trendinformation für uns und um europäische Brands zu finden, die wir in den chinesischen Markt bringen können“, so Wen Liu, CEO, Jesery aus Wuhan, Vertreter des kanadischen Designerbrands JAC. Das Management von Mallstyle Investment (Shanghai), u.a. mit italienischen Luxusmarken im Portfolio, nahm im Anschluss an das Meeting direkt Kontakt mit deutschen und italienischen Marken auf der CHIC auf.

Das Event Programm der CHIC bietet mit CHIC TALK ein umfangreiches Seminar- und Workshop-Angebot, von Trendinformationen über Retail-Solutions bis zu Buyermeetings; das Showprogramm CHIC SHOWS bietet die Bühne für Modepräsentationen, besonders die IMPULSES und OVERSEAS' JOINT FASHION SHOWS haben die Aufmerksamkeit der Besucher auf sich gezogen. CHIC Shanghai ist als globale Plattform für die Modeindustrie und den Modehandel entworfen und integriert alle relevanten Ressourcen für eine erfolgreiche Weiterentwicklung des Fashion Business in China.

“Once again, Yarn Expo proved itself as the ideal trade fair for the industry to benefit from changing demands and product trends, especially in the Chinese and wider Asian markets,” Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained. “The fair has evolved in recent editions to have a much bigger focus on synthetic, fancy & specialty yarns and chemical fibres, and based on the exhibitor feedback during the fair, there was an increase in buyers sourcing these products this year. What’s more, local buyers were showing strong interest in the offerings from Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia and Thailand, while Vietnamese cotton exhibitors reported increased orders from China due to the favourable trade policies between these countries.”

As one of the industry’s leading players, Birla Jingwei Fibres naturally plays a big role at Yarn Expo, with their Birla Planet pavilion proving highly successful for the company. Senior Vice President Mr Sachin Malik, explained: “Yarn Expo is a very important platform for Birla, to be visible to our value chain, to connect with our customers, and our own clients’ customers. We value Yarn Expo as a long-term partner for showcasing our products and connecting with the value chain. Each edition we connect with more and more buyers, and more customers in the industry recognise the importance of this fair. It has developed into a premium event in the global textile industry calendar. Usually this edition is quieter than the autumn fair, but the results this year saw the spring edition reach the same level. Our booth was always packed with buyers, and we also received more high-quality and international buyers. Our pavilion members are also very satisfied with the buyers and their results this time.”

Exhibitor comments

Indonesia

“Yarn Expo is an ideal platform to meet not only Chinese but also global buyers. The fair attracts so many good-quality buyers, and compared to other fairs attracts more of our target buyers. The results this edition have been good. After four years of doing business in China, we’ve found many Chinese customers who are willing to pay for quality. The demand in the China market for high-quality products is growing, in particular because of the shortage of spinning capacity which is made up for by imports. We’ve seen more serious and meaningful buyers that have strong desire for further cooperation this time, and I think the potential of this market will continue to grow.” Mr Anupam Agrawal, Director Spun Yarn Business, PT. Indo-Rama Synthetics Tbk

Korea

“Our booth was so crowded throughout the fair. We had more than 300 buyers visit us, and I guess approximately 30% of them will turn into business after the fair. Our target buyers are fabric and garment manufacturers, and we found a lot of good quality ones here. A wide range of worldwide buyers from different market sectors sourced at our booth, especially big-brand sportswear manufacturers and sourcing offices. We’ve had visitors from China, Europe and many other countries. We are very satisfied with our first Yarn Expo experience, and we expect a very good outcome after the show.” Mr Joo Son, International Sales Team, HJLite

Pakistan

“Yarn Expo is the global meeting platform for all yarn industry players. You have buyers from all over the world here, so it is the best trade platform in Asia to connect with worldwide buyers. We’ve met people from Argentina, Columbia, Korea, Indonesia, the UK and the US. Around 40% of them are new to us. We’ve noticed that everyone is looking for new products nowadays, so we always bring new items. Fancy yarn is getting more common in China, and demand is growing steadily. China is definitely a huge market for us to develop.” Mr Mohammad Saad, Director of Abtex Intl Ltd

India

“Yarn Expo is really helpful in that it has a diverse buyer profile and attracts buyers from around the world. We managed to talk to customers from Pakistan, India and Colombia, as well as potential Chinese buyers who are very interested in our products. The buyers have been genuine with specific sourcing needs, and some of them have already placed orders.” Mr N. Sarawgi, Representative of Madhusudan Rayons Pvt. Ltd

Thailand

“This edition we brought our new Kapok material to the fair for the first time. It has been the most popular product at our booth. In recent editions, we’ve also met more and more garment factories asking for customised fancy yarn to make their products competitive and unique, while eco-friendly and natural yarns are also more popular. Yarn Expo is the platform we announce our new products and technologies, and the feedback from buyers from around the world can help us improve them and learn the latest market trends. The fair is of great value for our market strategy.” Mr Warakorn Bunkanokwong, Export Sales Manager, Kongkiat Textile Co Ltd

Singapore

“We are here to explore the China market, but are also glad more customers from Europe and America visited our booth. Many of the buyers here are at the decision-making level, so can give us clear requirements and advice about our products. This is a highly effective fair to meet Chinese buyers to learn first-hand what the market needs.” Mr Rahul Gupta, Marketing Manager, Texvista Intl Pte Ltd

Vietnam

“Yarn Expo is a great chance to meet our existing partners and find new buyers. Compared to China cotton yarn, we still have an advantage in price and quality which attracts a lot of buyers to our booth. Yarn Expo provides us with a quick way to tap into the Chinese and Asian markets.” Mr Du Xuan Cuu, Trade Director, Hanam Textile Co

Uzbekistan

“The Chinese market is important to us, so we chose to exhibit in Yarn Expo. We have met many buyers here, and each year we can find new customers through Yarn Expo. The international nature of this fair is also beneficial for our business.” Mr Dilshod, Export Manager, Exoeast Trade LLP

“Yarn Expo is the largest platform in Asia. Compared to other fairs, the buyers here are of higher quality; genuine buyers make up a large portion and most of them come with sourcing intentions. Currently, fancy yarn is in great demand in the market. The number of customers looking for such products is significantly higher this year, and Yarn Expo can effectively help us capture this demand.”
Ms Stella Gan, Sales Manager, Jin Dun Textile

Buyer comments

“We can find all ranges of cotton yarn, fancy yarn and chemical fibres at Yarn Expo. Most of the famous brands are here, and they bring the latest technologies and products, including debut products. Yarn Expo always catches the latest trends in the industry and presents them at the fair. This year the quantity and quality of fancy yarn exhibitors has increased, so I’ve found some products to source already.” Mr Wang Gaofeng, Deputy General Manager, Jiaxing Jinqie Fashion Co Ltd, China

“We mainly came to source fancy yarn this time, and we found many new options. This international show greatly expands our sourcing options. Many of our existing suppliers, including from Indonesia, exhibit at this fair so that’s why we source here. We’re satisfied with the exhibitor quality, and intend to place orders afterwards. There have been a number of new technologies presented here that left a deep impression on us.” Ms Linggar Jati Halim, Director, PT. Kartika Sinar Mulia, Indonesia

“I like this fair as it gathers exhibitors from the entire industry supply chain. As the demand for functional fabrics continues to increase, we can also see this trend in Yarn Expo. Therefore, the fair helps us to learn about the industry’s developments.” Mr Jiang Chang, Marketing Manager, Hangzhou Gaoxi Technology Co Ltd, China

The next Yarn Expo fair, the Autumn Edition, will be held at the earlier date of 27 – 29 September 2018, once again at the National Exhibition and Convention Center.

In order to promote sustainable development throughout the industry, a number of yarn and fibre manufacturers have endeavoured to introduce green products into the early stages of textile production, and Yarn Expo, as the leading yarn and fibre business platform in Asia, serves as an ideal stage for these suppliers to gain exposure to buyers looking for such products.

Debut BCI Pavilion joined by Sateri and Birla Planet Pavilions to showcase eco-friendly products

Amongst a record number of exhibitors at this October’s Yarn Expo Autumn, the debut BCI Pavilion as well as the Sateri Pavilion and Birla Planet Pavilion that include eco-friendly products are certainly amongst the highlights this year. Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global organisation with more than 1,000 members including spinners, weavers and garment manufacturers throughout the entire cotton sector. It aims to promote sustainable cotton production, benefiting workers, customers and the environment as a whole. They will form the BCI Pavilion in Yarn Expo for the first time, with five spinners showcasing their cotton yarn manufactured with eco-friendly cotton.

Sateri is a well-known brand in China which specialises in viscose rayon. This natural and high-quality fibre is made from trees grown on renewable plantations. They are the largest producer of viscose fibre in China with three mills and an annual capacity of 550,000 tons, and also have Oeko-Tex certification. This October, nine other domestic exhibitors will form the Sateri Pavilion to demonstrate their comfortable textiles and skin-friendly hygiene products made from viscose fibre.

With over 50 years of experience in manufacturing cellulosic fibres, Birla Group strives to provide greener, purer and safer products to its customers. The Group has operated in China for three years now, and values Yarn Expo’s effectiveness in helping them to promote their brand and attract a wide range of buyers. “We managed to get connected with a number of downstream buyers at the fair. We have introduced our company and products to them that there is great chance for future cooperation.” said Mr Peter Dong, Senior Manager of Aditya Birla Group.   Coming back this year, the Birla Planet Pavilion will feature three of their highlighted fibres – Birla Viscose, Birla Modal and Birla Spunshades at the fair.

Six special display zones cater to latest industry trends

The textile industry in China is undergoing a structural change with keen competition, so domestic suppliers have to develop innovative and quality products to satisfy the ever-changing markets. To match the specific needs of various buyers, Yarn Expo has established six distinct display zones gathering the leading domestic companies, namely Colourful Chemical Zone, Natural Cotton Yarn Zone, Fancy Yarn Zone, Quality Wool Zone, Green Linen Zone and e-Commerce Zone.

Not only are a number of chemical fibre products with innovative, eco-friendly and health & comfort properties on offer from exhibitors, but visitors can also gain insights into product trends in these areas from the 2017/18 China Fibre Trend Area and Innovative Textile Material Forum, both of which feature in the Colourful Chemical Zone. The Natural Cotton Yarn Zone is another highlight of the three-day show, where exhibitors will showcase their natural cotton yarn and a range of functional products. Around 50 suppliers will also showcase their latest collections in the expanded Fancy Yarn Zone.
In response to the strong demand for fibre and yarn products in China and the Asian region, the coming autumn edition of Yarn Expo will double its exhibition space, and will accommodate around 500 global yarn suppliers from 13 countries and regions. Together with Yarn Expo Autumn 2017, three other textile trade fairs are held concurrently from 11 – 13 October in the same venue: Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Autumn Edition, PH Value and the China International Fashion Fair (CHIC).

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.
