Commenting on the upcoming trade fair, Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd said: “As the first Messe Frankfurt trade fair to be held since February due to the global pandemic, Intertextile Shenzhen is glad to once again, be able to support the industry and provide a key trading platform for textile apparel businesses in the Greater Bay Area.” She continued: “The relocation to the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center is an exciting step for the fair and offers the opportunity for future growth and additional convenience for exhibitors and visitors.”
This year, Intertextile Shenzhen will host a Japan pavilion and five domestic pavilions. The well-established and popular Fine Japan Zone will return and is once again expected to be a success at the fair. Japanese suppliers are recognised in the Chinese market as offering high quality craftsmanship, exclusive fibres and for having the ability to handle small quantity orders, stock orders and quick delivery services. The dedicated pavilion will display a variety of premium cotton and man-made ladieswear, menswear and casual wear fabrics.
A new exhibitor for the Fine Japan Zone this year will be Takisada-Nagoya. Established back in 1864, this Japanese enterprise will showcase their own uniquely designed fabrics, including natural and synthetic fibres, during their debut appearance at the fair. They have previously exhibited at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Autumn Edition.
In addition, the domestic pavilions, Shengze, Yuezheng, Jieqingban, Fabrics China Award and Fabric China Pioneer Plant Pavilions will display a selection of fabrics including, differentiated yarn, diversified silk, colourful denim, fashionable plush and versatile print along with knitted, lace and embroidery products. Meanwhile, a noteworthy domestic exhibitor new to the fair this year is Zhangjiagang VCARE Textile. They will display their featured product – woven plush – known for its softer and thicker properties than knitting plush along with other knitted, woven and bonded faux fabrics. They are able to offer customisation and small batch orders with a fast delivery.
