"There are increasing number of brands and apparel companies which are interested in the new material and they will come to Yarn Expo to check out the new technology. We are not here for onsite orders but for promoting our products and brands. We have achieved these objectives."

"We specialise in producing Latex Thread. There are about eight manufacturers of our kind in the world. We want to take advantage of Yarn Expo to promote our brand further in China. I am satisfied with the visitor flow. Amongst the visitors that we met here, 60% of them are our existing clients while the others are some end-users which didn’t contact us directly and those have never tried our products."

"We have brought some new items for promotion in this year’s fair. I am satisfied with the visitor number. It is beneficial for Yarn Expo to be held simultaneously with Intertextile Apparel Fabrics show because more potential customers came to us. We have been a long term supporter of the fair. This is the occasion where most of the industry players gather and showcase every year. Being one of the leaders of the industry, this is the must-go event for us. We are always happy with the result of the fair and will keep joining in the future. "

"Yarn Expo is one of the biggest shows in the world and I have been visiting it for more than ten times. It is useful in helping me to source for suitable raw materials and quality suppliers. I notice that there are more products made of Graphene this year and this can be a potential business. "
