Yarn and fiber trade show SpinExpo, which has staged events in Shanghai and New York over the past 14 years, is preparing to launch the first incarnation of its show in Paris.

SpinExpo will run July 6 and 7 at the Cité de la Mode et du Design. SpinExpo said the fair will be the first international exhibition specialized in fibers; yarns for knitting and weaving, and flat-bed knitwear in Europe.

Fair organizers said they are targeting 75 exhibitors for the first Paris edition of the fair.

WWD covered SpinExpo in Shanghai earlier this month.

The next edition of SpinExpo New York runs July 19 through 21 at the Brooklyn Expo Center, while that of SpinExpo Shanghai runs Aug. 30 through Sept. 1.
