Intertextile Pavilion Shenzhen 2014 grows by 33%

News this week: Close to 700 exhibitors from eight countries and regions joined Messe Frankfurt’s Intertextile Pavilion at the Shenzhen International Trade Fair for Apparel Fabrics and Accessories. The show was held from 10th to 12th July at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center (SZCEC), and covered 30,000 m2 of exhibition space – up 33% from 2013.

According to Messe Frankfurt, the show set a new record for buyer attendance attracting more than 17,500 from 27 countries and regions – an increase of 34% compared with 2013. The number of exhibitors was also up 13% vs. last year’s edition. Group pavilions at the 2014 show included those from Taiwan, Korea and India.

Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK), commented, “The general consensus of our exhibitors was that there is a lot of potential in the south of China, and that this fair is the best platform to tap into that. The rise in both exhibitor and buyer numbers confirms that there is a need for a fair of this type in the region, and we feel it complements our existing apparel fabrics and accessories fairs in Shanghai well.”
