“Going green” a predicted hit at Yarn Expo Autumn
Sustainability is more than an industry trend. By definition, it is a long-lasting key message for development, with more buyers looking to source environmentally-friendly products that are still competitively-priced. Responsible sources of specialty yarns, fancy yarns and chemical fibres are all on offer at this year’s Autumn Edition of Yarn Expo, held from 15 – 17 October. For this Autumn Edition, Yarn Expo is set to take place concurrently with the biennial ITMA ASIA + CITME.
Yarn Expo Autumn moves to mid-October; held concurrently with ITMA ASIA + CITME
The new national government-organised China International Import Expo (CIIE), to be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in November, has necessitated the need for long-term renovation of halls at the fairground, requiring Yarn Expo Autumn 2018 to be held one month later, and concurrent with ITMA ASIA + CITME, from 15 – 17 October.
Yarn Expo Autumn 2018 to take place on a new date
Yarn Expo Autumn joins Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and two other international textile fairs in being held earlier this year. The 27 – 29 September event is expected to attract over 500 exhibitors to Shanghai’s National Exhibition and Convention Center.
