As international trade shows are gradually getting back on schedule in China, this year’s Yarn Expo Autumn will also open as planned next Wednesday. From 23 – 25 September, the fair will house over 410 exhibitors from six countries & regions, including China, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, the US and Vietnam, in hall 8.2 of the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). Apart from the all-encompassing range of high-quality and innovative yarn & fibre products on offer, a number of themed areas and events will also take place during the fair to reveal the latest developments of different industry sectors, as well as offer valuable knowledge exchange opportunities.

The growing popularity and recognition of Yarn Expo has made the fair one of the most influential trade events in the industry. Both overseas and domestic suppliers choose the fair as their key stage to present their latest products and innovations from natural to synthetic. Amongst the 410-plus exhibitors this year are some big name players, which include:

  • Cotton Council International (booth 8.2-C56): will promote quality and traceable US cotton using their COTTON USA brand.
  • Texperts India Pvt Ltd (8.2-D52): as a service provider for customised solutions for textile products sourcing and marketing, the company facilitates international trade of nearly 10,000 tons per month of fibres, yarns, fabrics and garments. The company also has an expert team for handling polyester high tenacity yarn products for industrial applications which will be introduced during the fair.
  • Orient International (Holding) Co Ltd (8.2-E85): will showcase different fibre series, such as the original liquid-coloured Fengcai series, functional antibacterial series, regenerated & differentiated series and bio-based Borlar polylactic acid series.
  • Nantong Doublegreat Textile Co Ltd (8.2-H58): will showcase the company’s newly developed polylactic acid blended yarn. Blended with combed cotton and polylactic acid, this product is naturally degradable and antibacterial, which will make knitted fabric smoother, lighter, softer, resistant to fluff and with good hygroscopicity.
  • Hmei Thread Co Ltd of Yibin Sichuan (8.2-H95): will highlight their dyed viscose spun yarn which uses top quality viscose staple fibre as a raw material, and is spun by a first-class spinning process.

New online business matching service

For those who cannot attend the fair due to travel restrictions, this year’s Yarn Expo Autumn has launched a new online business matching service for all pre-registered visitors. This online platform offers access to the exhibitor search platform as well as allows users to meet with their targeted visitors or buyers virtually. In fact, as those who can attend the fair can also use this online service to start their sourcing early and schedule meetings with potential suppliers in advance, it will increase buyers’ sourcing efficiency and boost the exhibitors’ exhibit results.
