The exhibition is expected to serve as the premier purchasing platform for the world's dye and chemical industry and lay a solid foundation for the sector to expand domestic demand and drive growth.
The show's theme as "the place to gather in order to create a brand new dye industry" is reflected in its size, an exhibition space of 30,000 square meters, the number of exhibitors, more than 500, and its global diversity, exhibitors from more than 14 countries and regions. Exhibited products will be showcased in Halls 1 and 4, including a variety of advanced environmentally friendly dyestuffs, organic pigments, auxiliaries, intermediate and environmentally sound equipment as well as textile printing products and equipment.
