In light of the current pandemic circumstances in China, the 2022 edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles Autumn will be deferred. The Autumn fair, which was originally scheduled to be held from 15 – 17 August at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, will now take place in 2023 at the same venue. The fair’s organisers will announce the new date in due course.

Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, explained the decision: “After holding discussions with our stakeholders, we have made what we believe to be the responsible decision to delay the fair. While the call was made with the safety of the fair’s participants in mind, deferring the fair to the early part of next year will also allow more time for fairgoers to plan for their participation.”

“We understand that there is a lot of anticipation surrounding this fair, with exhibitors and buyers eager to connect in person. We would like to thank all participants for their patience and understanding, and also to express our continued dedication to provide a quality international trading platform for the home textile industry.”

Exhibitors or visitors with any further enquiries related to the fair can email, or visit the fair’s official website:

Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).
