The 2018 Autumn edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics will take place September 27 to 29 instead of its usual October timing.
The 2017 fair played host to 4,538 exhibitors from 32 countries and regions, and 77,883 trade buyers from 102 countries and regions.
After extensive consultation with all stakeholders over the past year, the organisers came to the decision to bring forward the autumn edition to September. The autumn/winter sourcing season has steadily moved earlier in the year, and this change in timing was necessary to ensure Intertextile Shanghai remains the leading business platform for both suppliers and buyers in the global apparel fabrics and accessories industry.
As in previous editions, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics will be held concurrently with Yarn Expo Autumn, fashion garment fair Chic and knitting fair PH Value, making this the most comprehensive sourcing platform in the global industry.
More details of the autumn edition will be announced after the conclusion of the spring edition, March 14 to 16, where some 3,300 exhibitors and around 70,000 trade buyers are expected to converge.
