Cinte Techtextil China, scheduled from 24 to 26 September 2014 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, will have nearly 500 exhibitors, an increase compared with the previous edition with extra hall, 35,000 square meters of exhibition space.
According to Wendy Wen, Senior GM of Fair Co-organiser Messe Frankfurt (HK), “This standalone version will be more beneficial for participants.” She further adds, “Holding the fair independently from Intertextile ensures the visitor profile will be more specific to the industry. This gives overseas companies greater opportunity to promote their products and enhance their brands in the fast-growing Asian market.”
The Asian technical textiles market is providing a range of new opportunities for overseas firms. Industrial protective equipment is just one of these opportunities, as countries in the region, in particular China and India, still have large numbers of unprotected industrial workers.
Concordia Textiles is one exhibitor that sees this potential in the region in the near future. As Dirk De Locht from Concordia sais, “ More awareness of protecting workers will enlarge the demand for protective work wear that meets specific quality standards.”
Companies from the full industry spectrum will be at the fair, with product groups and application areas including technology and machinery, woven and knitted fabrics, nonwovens, coated textiles, composites, surface and bonding techniques, fibers and yarns and more on display.
Cinte Techtextil China is organzeed by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Nonwovens & Industrial Textiles Association (CNITA).
