The Cashmere World trade show, which focuses exclusively on the international cashmere supply chain, has changed its dates to come in line with the luxury fibre’s peak sourcing season.
By bring the dates forward by one month to October, it is intended that exhibitors and visitors will be able to combine their sales and buying trips.
The new dates “give buyers more opportunities to gather information, look for new suppliers and compare prices before placing orders,” explains Mr Tian Hong, director of The China Chamber of Commerce of the Import and Export of Foodstuffs, Native Produce & Animal By-Products (CFNA) and co-organiser of Cashmere World.
Products on display at the event cover every stage of the supply chain, from raw materials, through manufacturing technology, testing and grading standards methods, to finished fashion products.
A Cashmere World Colours trend area lets visitors view upcoming colours, materials and styles, and a ‘match-making’ service makes it easier for new business partners to meet.
