Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics - Autumn Edition will return from September 23-25 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, China. The exhibition will support the textile industry with a diverse product offering and an interaction platform that stimulates market recovery.

In the last edition held last autumn, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics - Autumn Edition welcomed more than 4,400 exhibitors and over 89,000 buyers.

2020 has been incredibly challenging for the textile industry, and our thoughts go out to all those individuals and businesses affected,” said Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “It is our hope that by September the recovery of the sector is well underway, and Intertextile can act as a much-needed meeting place to reboot the industry as we look to make up lost ground in the second half of the year.”

Ms Wendy Wen also emphasized that the organizers have been working closely with overseas companies in the hope that international travel restrictions would be lifted soon, ensuring a comprehensive range of products is available to buyers at the exhibition.
