After the successful edition of Cinte Techtextil China in 2014, Asia’s leading trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens will be held in Shanghai from October 12 to 14, 2016 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. Last year’s fair saw 460 exhibitors from 22 countries visit the event.
The 2014 event was the largest ever Cinte Techtextil China in the fair’s history, and comprised pavilions from Belgium, Germany, Italy and Taiwan, as well as a European Zone. Together with regional pavilions from China, the fair displayed a full range of nonwovens and technical textiles in 12 different application areas. The fair also incorporated a debut Association Village bringing together 10 national technical textile associations from nine countries and regions.
Another important feature was the fringe programme. The 2014 edition featured an Innovative Showcase Area which introduced the latest innovations and achievements from various fast-growing application sectors in the industry. A range of seminars were held to help participants get introduced to new technologies through a series of informative presentations. The all-inclusive product profile of the fair saw 12,496 visitors from 61 countries and regions visit the fair.
According to the China Nonwovens & Industrial Textile Association (CNITA), the total output of technical textiles and nonwoven products in the country will reach over 22 million tons in 2020, double that of 2013. Cinte Techtextil China is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK), CCPIT; and the China Nonwovens & Industrial Textiles Association (CNITA).
