SHANGHAI — Organizers of this year’s spring edition of Intertextile Apparel Fabrics show relocated the trade fair from Beijing to Shanghai and held the event at an earlier date as part of an effort to attract more international suppliers and to have better coordination with the sourcing time of local buyers for the upcoming spring season.
The three-day show earlier this month attracted more than 1,400 exhibitors from 23 countries and regions, representing an 11 percent increase in foreign exhibitors compared with last year’s event in Beijing, according to organizers Messe Frankfurt. Yarn Expo, which featured 230 suppliers offering yarns and fibers, was also held in conjunction with the apparel fair.
