Extensive coverage on advanced technologies, automation and green solutions to echo the latest market trends

In recent years, the market has seen an accelerating demand for more personalised and faster laundry services. What’s more, the industry is under pressure from the rise of operational expenditures and higher standards on environmental protection. In response to these shifting trends, the industry is now embracing the use of more advanced technologies to help overcome these challenges.

As an industry leading fair for the textile care industry, Texcare Asia maintains its goal in supporting its continuous advancements. Given the aforementioned needs on technological adoption, the 2017 edition has significantly expanded its focus on technologies, automation and green solutions to support the industry’s sustainable development. A broader range of cutting edge solutions and advanced equipment will be showcased during the course of the show, ranging from heavy duty and smart laundry machineries, to automated and energy saving washing solutions.

The fair also sees extensive showcases on RFID (radio frequency identification) integration for laundry workshops. The track-and-trace capabilities of RFID will benefit laundry shops with increased operational accuracy, efficiency, visibility and loss-prevention.

In line with these focuses is the show’s world class fringe programme, which features five events with over 30 sessions. Each has been organised to cover every corner of the industry’s needs, for fairgoers to share, learn and connect. These forums are:

  • Texcare Forum Asia 2017
  • Convention on applications of smart and green laundry for national institutes
  • China hotel smart and green laundry solutions summit 2017
  • Management model for textile rental and laundry services
  •  RAL first annual conference & textile washing leasing technology forum

Commenting the ongoing evolution of the Asian market, Mr Richard Li, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, said: “With the launch of the “One Belt, One Road” initiative, the hotel and tourism markets in Asia are making positive progress under the backdrop of the Asia-Europe transport network, which has become further developed in recent years. Thanks to this, the needs of laundry and dry cleaning services will experience vigorous growth.”

“Texcare Asia plays a vital role as the one-stop platform for industry peers to grasp these opportunities by introducing the products, innovations and topics which are in line with the very latest trends,” Mr Li added.

Texcare Asia is a biennial event organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and China Light Industry Machinery Association. The fair is also a sister event of Texcare International. Every four years, Texcare International – the world market for modern textile care – provides an international venue for the textile-care sector in Frankfurt, Germany.
