Attendance jumps nearly 60% for Intertextile Shanghai show

SHANGHAI – With many buyers and exhibitors returning to China for the first time since the pandemic outbreak in 2020, last week’s Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles expo logged big increases in traffic.

The trade fair drew more than 32,000 visits, up 59.2%. They came from 96 countries and regions, with more than 10% travelling to China from overseas.

New exhibitor countries and regions represented included Indonesia, Portugal, Taiwan (China), Türkiye and the U.S. They were among the 1,034 businesses set up at the event, which took place from Aug. 16-18 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai. The exhibitor count was up 38.1%.

“The increase in overseas exhibitors, and the return of several country and region pavilions, has meant even more diversified sourcing options for our devoted buyers from home and abroad,” said Wilmet Shea, general manager of show organizer Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.

The 2024 Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition will take place March 6-8, 2024, while the Autumn Edition is scheduled for Aug. 14-16, 2024.

Co-organizers of the fair include the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT, and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).
