Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles sets new records
Asia’s premier fair for the home textiles industry concluded last week, with new records set for exhibitor, visitor and exhibition space figures. Over 43,000 trade buyers (2014: 43,189) attended Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Autumn Edition 2015, which was held for the first time at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) across 170,520 sqm (2014: 150,400). The 1,402 exhibitors from 30 countries and regions (2014: 1,334) that took part was also a new high point in the fair’s 21-year history. “We’re delighted that our first edition in this new venue was such a success,” explained Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd as the fair closed on 28 August. “But going beyond the record figures, there were a number of other aspects that were just as pleasing such as the increase in internationality of participants, and the number of first-time overseas exhibitors who were seeking out opportunities in the Asian market. We also had a number of new product zones, as well as returning ones, which proved extremely popular, while our new InterDesign programme attracted huge crowds to the Trend Area, Trend Concept Show and seminars.”
