Spring traditionally marks the start of the year in China when industry becomes active again. Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition, which opens next week and runs from 12 – 14 March, provides the home furnishings sector with an all-inclusive range of home textiles finished products and inspiring fringe events, so as to spur business interaction among trade partners.
“The 2018 Spring Edition successfully connected 232 exhibitors and over 20,000 buyers, and generated solid business outcomes. We are convinced that this year’s show, with around 30% more exhibitors, will continue to be the main occasion to take advantage of the peak sourcing period for home textiles finished products in China,” Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd said.
The highlights of the 2019 Spring Edition include:
• Extensive finished products: more than 300 domestic and international suppliers will be presenting a wide range of products including bedding & towelling, curtains, table & kitchen linen and more. Some of the participating brands include Bambi Enterprises & Jaspa Herington from Australia, Mistral Home NV from Belgium, Shanghai Shuixing Home Textile, Sunvim Group and Yantai Pacific Home Fashion.
