Beginning from 2021, Cinte Techtextil China will be held annually rather than biennially. Following on from a successful 14th edition in September this year, Asia’s leading event for the entire technical textiles and nonwovens industry will be there at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai. This will be the first instance that Cinte Techtextil will take place at this fairground. The recently completed 2020 edition attracted 409 exhibitors and 15,326 visits at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

Explaining the rationale behind the change to an annual fair, Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained: “We have been in discussions with our exhibitors, buyers and other stakeholders for some time now about the fair becoming an annual event, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Especially as the trends, technologies and applications in the industry are changing at an increasing pace in China, it’s important for the sector to have a more frequent platform to explore these. And with China’s value-added industrial index growing by 60% in the first half of 2020, and demand expected to remain high due to the pandemic, we are anticipating strong participation in 2021.”

Cinte Techtextil China’s product categories cover 12 application areas, which comprehensively span the full range of potential uses of modern textile technologies. These categories also span the entire industry, from upstream equipment and raw materials providers to finished fabrics, chemicals and other solutions. This full coverage of product groups and application areas ensures the fair is an effective business platform for the entire industry.

Cinte Techtextil China is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Nonwovens & Industrial Textiles Association (CNITA).
