The 2017 spring edition of Yarn Expo will be held from March 15 to 17 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). Over years, the Expo has increased in stature in the global yarn and fibre market and is expected to feature more exhibitors in its next edition.
Its scale is expected to jump by 20 per cent and will occupy 18,000 sq. m. compared to 15,000 sq. m. in 2016 to accommodate the increase in exhibitors. Nearly 360 exhibitors will bring together some of the world’s highest quality yarn and fibre products such as natural and blended yarns including cotton, wool, flax / regenerated flax, silk, and man-made fibres and yarns as well as specialty products including elastic and fancy and blended yarns.
Last year’s Yarn Expo Spring edition attracted 20,527 buyers from 77 countries and regions creating an unrivalled platform for exhibitors to reach all kinds of buyers from around the world. To take advantage of this diverse buyer profile, a number of international suppliers have already confirmed their participation this year.
