Yarn Expo has increased in stature in the global yarn and fiber market over recent years, and as such, is expected to feature more exhibitors at its 2017 spring edition from March 15th to 17th in hall 5.1 of the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai).
Its scale is expected to jump 20%, occupying 18,000 square meters (15,000 square meters in 2016), to accommodate the increase in exhibitors. Nearly 360 exhibitors (309 in 2016) will bring together some of the world’s highest quality yarn and fiber products.
In 2016, Yarn Expo Spring attracted 20,527 buyers from 77 countries and regions, creating an unrivaled platform for exhibitors to reach all kinds of buyers from around the world. To take advantage of this diverse buyer profile, a number of international suppliers have already confirmed their participation this year.
Peter Dong, Senior Manager of Birla Jingwei Fibres Co., Ltd. (Aditya Birla Group), says, “Yarn Expo engages a broad range of buyers, and it’s an ideal stage for us to introduce our company and products to target buyers as well as to establish solid business relationships with them.”
The Cotton Textile Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) will once again organize the India Pavilion to feature India’s top cotton yarn and fiber suppliers. TEXPROCIL Director Ravindranathan Narayanasamy also shared his appreciation of the fair, saying, “Yarn Expo is an important meeting point for Indian suppliers and importers from all over the world. The fair is helping Indian suppliers meet new customers from different parts of Mainland China and outside too, such as Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Europe and the U.S.”
