Intertextil Shanghai creating product zones
May 21, 2009,
Shanghai -- The Intertextil Shanghai Home Textile show set for Aug. 25 to 27 is making some changes this year.
In addition, curtain and upholstery manufacturers will be grouped into product zones together with international groups and pavilions from Germany, Pakistan, Taiwan and Turkey, plus individual exhibitors from Europe and Australia in the international halls.
Chinese suppliers will be grouped into:
Down Products Zone;
Functional Home Textiles Products Zone;
Seven regional pavilions.
“Despite the downturn in the global economy, China’s Gross Domestic Production is forecasted to maintain a steady growth rate of 6.5% in 2009. Most significantly, home textile imports for the first two months of this year increased by 72% compared to the same period as last year,” according to Messe Frankfurt, which is the fair organizer along with the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT, and China Home Textile Association (CHTA).
