Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition, due to take place in March 2014 stands postponed until 2015. Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) explained that all the stakeholders were consulted prior to taking the decision. Local exhibitors feedback is that only one home textile fair in Shanghai during 2014 was desirable was the reason for the postponement,” Wen said.
Wendy said they will be concentrating on the 2014 autumn fair as it would be more beneficial for exhibitors and local buyers. The Spring edition scheduled for 2015 will go ahead as overseas orders in the Asian region and China will pick up. It will be held concurrently with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, with the synergies of this co-location providing new opportunities for exhibitors and visitors of both fairs.
Messe Frankfurt’s two other home textile fairs in China will be held as per schedule in 2014, providing overseas exhibitors and buyers access to the numerous opportunities in the Asian home textile market. From March 18-22, 2014, Intertextile Guangzhou Hometextile China will be held concurrently with the China International Outdoor & Leisure Fair, Homedecor & Housewares China and the China International Furniture Fair (Guangzhou) whereas Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles-Autumn Edition will take place from August 27 to 29, 2014 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
