"We know how important the Autumn sourcing season is for textile buyers and suppliers, but as a responsible trade fair organiser, we hold a commitment both to our participants and the local authorities that extends beyond the fairground," Wilmet Shea, deputy general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, said in a press release. "Given the ongoing pandemic control measures in Shanghai, and after consultations with key stakeholders, we have decided that deferring the autumn fairs to next Spring is the most appropriate arrangement for the textile industry."

Shea added: "While we have looked to find an appropriate time slot later this year for the autumn shows to be held, any postponement would congest the trade fair calendar by placing the autumn fairs too close to the Shenzhen editions of Intertextile Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo this November, as well as the Spring editions in Shanghai next March."

Between now and next spring, the Shenzhen editions of Intertextile Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo held in autumn, offer textile suppliers and buyers the opportunity to expand their business in the Greater Bay Area, a fast-growing hub for high-end fashion.

Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Textile Information Centre. The co-organisers of Yarn Expo are Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT.
