Reflecting the general optimism surrounding the technical textile and nonwovens markets in Asia, Cinte Techtextil China ended on a high note with steady increases in the size of the fair and its internationalism. 480 exhibitors from 26 countries and regions (2014: 460 from 22 countries and regions) took part, with new representation from Denmark, Japan, Poland and Sweden at this edition. This increase was matched in the visitor figure with 13,085 visitors from 67 countries and regions (2014: 12,496 from 61 countries and regions). The top ten overseas countries and regions were: Korea, Taiwan, Japan, the U.S., India, Russia, Italy, Germany, Hong Kong and Thailand. Both the exhibitor and visitor figures were new records for Cinte Techtextil China, while at 35,000 gross sqm, the fair was the same size as the previous edition.
Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd., says, “Our focus in the lead up to the event was on ensuring we provided a quality trade platform for both exhibitors and buyers, and the feedback from both groups confirms this was the case. Attracting high-quality buyers both from China and further afield, including many new potential business partners for exhibitors, Cinte Techtextil China has further solidified its reputation in Asia as the leading trade event for the technical textile and nonwovens industries. Coupled with strong demand in the region, which is predicted to continue in the coming years, particularly in China, the 2016 edition of the fair can be considered a strong success.”
