The spring edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles will return to the National Exhibition and Convention Centre in Shanghai from March 11th to 13th, 2020.
Demonstrating consistent growth in recent years, the fair is a preeminent annual destination for finished home textile products. The fair gathers leading high-quality suppliers from China, as well as from overseas, featuring a wide range of home textile collections.
Despite ongoing trade disputes and global economic uncertainties, data from the National Bureau of Statistics shows that China’s home textile industry maintained steady growth in the first eight months of 2019. Domestic sales of home textile products amounted to US$13.4 billion during January-August 2019, with a year-on-year growth rate of 4.81%.
“In China, the overall economic slowdown, and of course, the trade conflict with the U.S. is creating uncertainties,” explained Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “However, thanks to the population size and purchasing power of the Chinese market, even a slower growth rate can equate to good business potentials. The Chinese home textile industry continues to perform well against all odds. This steady growth injects confidence to the market.”
Held amid the peak sourcing season of the Chinese home textile industry, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles, Spring Edition is the ideal place for companies to tap into the growing Chinese market, and for buyers to source the best of finished home textile products. The spring 2019 edition attracted 22,296 trade buyers from 60 countries and regions (up 6.8% from the spring 2018 edition, which had 20,870 visitors), as well as 291 exhibitors from 10 countries and regions (up 25% from the spring 2019 edition, which featured 232 exhibitors).
The March 2020 fair will showcase a range of home textile products including bedding & toweling, rugs, table & kitchen linen, home textile technologies, textile design, etc.
