Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics 2008 ended last week with nearly 49,000 visitors from 82 countries. The show, at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, ran 20 - 23 October with one day devoted to specially invited trade buyers. The show has earned its position as a major trade destination in Asia and the world, said Ms Wendy Wen, Director of Trade Fairs for Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.

"The show continued the success Intertextile Shanghai has enjoyed for the past 14 years. Despite economic concerns around the world, trade buyers still choose to come to this fair - one of the largest in the world for textiles - to source fabrics and accessories and learn upcoming design trends. We are very pleased by the results."

Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics featured 115,000 sqm (43% more than 2007); 2,500 exhibitors; and many special features:

* Country and region pavilions from Germany, Japan, Korea, Italy, Pakistan, Portugal, Taiwan, Thailand and Turkey
* Group pavilions from fibre makers Invista, Lenzing, Dow and Hyosung
* An entire hall dedicated to accessories and a new lingerie zone
* Trend forums, industry seminars, a textile designer area and style and trend forecasting agencies
* Domestic halls organised by product end use

"The show has so many detailed product categories and fabrics, this is much more convenient for us and saves a lot of time," said one visitor, Ms Connie Ho, a Fabric Manager with Designer Holdings Overseas, of Hong Kong a Warnaco subsidiary. "It's also a good opportunity to get market and trend information. In this economy, trade shows are more important than ever because they are the best way to source products directly."

At the same time as Intertextile Shanghai Apparel, the fibre and yarn show Yarn Expo featured 55 suppliers in 3,000 sqm of trade space at the Shanghai International Convention Centre.
