Shanghai Textile Fairs in March Canceled Due to Virus Outbreak

SHANGHAI -- Three textile fairs in Shanghai will be postponed from March to a later date due to the Novel Coronavirus outbreak.

This includes Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Yarn Expo Spring, and Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition, which was due to be held in Shanghai from March 11 – 13.

This follows the recent announcement that the company’s other fairs to be held in China in the coming two months – Prolight + Sound Guangzhou, SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou (SIAF), and Asiamold in Guangzhou, and Toy & Edu, Baby & Stroller and Licensing China in Shenzhen – have also been postponed until later in the year.

“Messe Frankfurt has been an active player in the China market for over 30 years now, so we stand fully behind the government’s efforts to control the outbreak,” Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt, says in a statement. “This includes the recent suspension of large-scale trade and economic events in a number of cities, so with this and the wellbeing of all our stakeholders in mind, we have made the decision to reschedule our upcoming textile fairs in Shanghai to a later date."

Exhibitors or visitors with any queries about the textile fairs should email:

Messe Frankfurt is the world’s largest trade fair and event organizer with more than 2,600 employees at 30 locations.
