80% of space already booked for
Intertextile Shanghai Apparel
Fabrics, one of the most influential industry trade event of the
year is to be held from 11 – 13 October 2017.
“The whole industry knows Intertextile as a fair where you
can find everything you’re looking for given its size and
product range, but look a little closer and it’s clear that the
fair has become much more than that in recent years,” Ms. Wendy
Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd
explained. “It is also a hub for the latest fashion,
particularly the trendy options available in the Japan Pavilion,
the cutting-edge patterns in Verve for Design, as well as the
new Chinese talents beginning to emerge, to name just a few.
Being in the heart of Asia, the fair is also a focal point for
fabric innovations, best evidenced in the Korea & Taiwan
Pavilions, Functional Lab and Group Pavilions, as well as
increasingly from Chinese exhibitors also.”
