Yarn Expo Autumn exhibitors cater for a new wave of demand for sustainable products
As the world has become ever-more eco-conscious in recent years, the textile industry has been no exception. There has been a significant focus and push for sustainable production processes, products and technologies across the entire supply chain. And the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted even more so, the need for sustainability within the textile sector. Whilst manufacturing and travel paused for a moment, skies became clearer and water was cleaner in lockdown cities as the environmental impact of pre-COVID-19 lifestyles was exposed to consumers, who now expect change following the pandemic. At Yarn Expo Autumn, held from 23 – 25 September at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), visitors will have the chance to view a diverse range of raw and recycled products to satisfy consumer demand for a more sustainable industry.

Yarn Expo exhibitors offer a sustainable, traceable starting point for fashion brands
In recent editions of Yarn Expo, new opportunities have been presenting themselves as demand for transparency in the textile supply chain increases. At Yarn Expo Spring 2019, three highlighted exhibitors were selected for in-depth case studies: Birla Cellulose (China), Cotton Council International (USA) and Safilin (France). Each exhibitor gave their opinion on shifting sourcing trends, what needs to be done to achieve sustainability in the textile industry, and how they found entry points into new markets at Yarn Expo.

“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.
