Providing a key opportunity to take advantage of the growing business prospects in the Greater Bay Area, Yarn Expo Shenzhen will be held in Hall 10 at the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center from 2 – 4 November 2022. Leading suppliers will showcase a wide selection of yarn and fibre advancements, from high-quality, natural products to innovative synthetics, as well as unique offerings in the sustainable and functional yarn categories.

“Yarn Expo has established its global reputation as a leading trade fair that highlights international yarn and fibre trends, and one that encourages thought-provoking discussions,” said Ms Wilmet Shea, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “We are pleased to be welcoming participants back to Yarn Expo Shenzhen this year, which is strategically located in the Greater Bay Area, a dynamic fashion hub and one of the country’s growth engines. In addition to the customary yarn and fibre categories, sustainable and functional materials will be a key focus at our upcoming fair. This is a product sector we’d like to develop further, as we believe it better meets the industry’s sourcing needs, especially when you consider the rapidly evolving market in South China and Southeast Asia.”

Yarn Expo Shenzhen provides fairgoers with increasing business opportunities in the Greater Bay Area

With Shenzhen as one of its core cities, China’s Greater Bay Area (GBA) has been witnessing strong domestic demand and steady economic growth. According to data from Delta Analysis, GBA recorded a positive trade balance of USD 42.9 billion in July 2022 with 19.5% year-on-year growth. Its most notable trade balance rebound was after spring, with the region seeing significant year-on-year growth of 34.6%[1] in May 2022. In addition to the area’s export potential, the Commerce Bureau of Shenzhen Municipality has made efforts to develop Shenzhen into an international consumption hub, introducing a wide range of new measures in February 2022 in aid of this[2].

Notably, Shenzhen is home to thousands of designers, brands and garment producers, connecting with major yarn and fibre manufacturers in categories such as ladieswear, menswear, kidswear, underwear, denim and wool. With evidence attesting to the region’s manufacturing, consumption and export potential, Yarn Expo Shenzhen is a well-placed platform for industry players to reach out to key contacts and grow their businesses.
