Messe Frankfurt changes textiles shows in China

News this week: International trade fair organiser Messe Frankfurt announced it will relocate the spring edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo Spring to a new venue in Shanghai and it will discontinue the Hong Kong edition of Interstoff Asia Essential – effective next year.

The organiser decided to relocate its two Shanghai-based trade shows to the new 400,000 m2 National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai’s Hongqiao district to allow for further growth – where they will run concurrently with the 23rd edition of the China International Fashion Fair (CHIC). CHIC is jointly organised by Beijing-based organiser Fashion Expo and the China World Trade Center.

Addressing the ending of Interstoff Asia Essential in Hong Kong, Messe Frankfurt claims a steady shifting of textile manufacturing and fashion buying offices from Hong Kong to China in recent years influenced its decision to focus all of its efforts in mainland China.
