China International Trade Fair for Apparel Fabrics and Accessories
28 - 30 March 2012
China International Exhibition Centre, Beijing, China
Spring show confirms full occupancy on 50,000 sqm of exhibition space
Suppliers from Korea, Taiwan and Japan accommodate flexible buyer needs
This season, Intertextile Beijing Apparel Fabrics confirms full occupancy with more than 1,200 international and domestic Chinese apparel fabrics and accessories suppliers. The fair takes place, next month, from 28 – 30 March 2012 and offers a full global market product range with international suppliers located in halls 2, 3 & 4 at the China International Exhibition Centre.
A number of the leading suppliers participating in the country / region pavilions from Japan (11 exhibitors), Korea (59 exhibitors), Pakistan (7 exhibitors) and Taiwan (28 exhibitors) target buyers across the international and domestic marketplace as well as accommodate a variety of sourcing needs including small quantities or high-volume orders.
The Korea Research Institute for Fashion Industry complements special buying requirements and offers a multitude of innovative fabrics using traditional Korean design. Other products on display at the Korean pavilion includes a variety of light weight cottons, modal, nylon, rayon, Tencel and wool and much more.
Japanese brand Kurabo also provides flexible minimum orders and presents high-twisted yarn fabrics, cupro, composite fabrics of mixed yarns, plus some brand materials such as J-fiber and Eco-Wash. “Over the years of taking part in this fair, we have noticed a buying tendency towards distinct fabrics in look, texture, finish and function,” commented Mr. Ryo Hatakeyama, Vice President for their Shanghai branch.
Mr Hatakeyama finds that Chinese buyers in particular prefer fabrics that are soft to touch and have even become more educated in their knowledge of texture technique, design and variation, which is why suppliers from Japan are turning their attention to this rapidly growing market by taking part in the Intertextile Beijing trade fair.
Ms Ruby Feng, Section Chief, Cross-Strait Marketing Section, Market Promotion Department for Taiwan Textile Federation, organiser of the Taiwan pavilion agrees with Mr Hatakeyama’s sentiments. “Intertextile Beijing Apparel Fabrics is one of the best platforms to promote products to the domestic China market, especially since there are so many textile import tariff reductions and exemptions from Taiwan to China,” she said.
The majority of the exhibitors in the Taiwan Pavilion feature high quality accessories, cotton, denim, embroidery, jacquard, knit, lace, polyester, spandex, wool blended and woven fabrics suitable for mass to luxury markets.
Another fair feature is the Accessories Hall in Hall 5 that showcases international and domestic suppliers of buttons, labels, lace & embroidery, hooks/loops/clips, zippers and many other items.
