Texcare Asia sets new show date in 2017

17 Oct 2016

Texcare Asia, the International Trade fair for Modern Textile Care, has confirmed the dates for its next edition: 27 – 29 September 2017. Since the biennial show’s debut in 1998 in Singapore, it has made great strides and developed to be one of the most comprehensive showcases on advanced machinery and commercial solutions for the laundry and dry-cleaning industry in Asia. Following the successful editions in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai, Texcare Asia marks its 20th year in 2017 and is scheduled to take place again at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, China.

New technologies and efficient solutions enter the market frequently and Texcare Asia is recognised as the gateway to these advances entering the Asian market. Mr Richard Li, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, the organiser of the show, acknowledged the changing demands. He expressed: “With the growing awareness of the significance of energy conservation and environmental protection, intelligent and resources-saving concepts are gaining more attention within the industry across Asia. We see the regional demand for solution-oriented software and services is sprouting and the potential is huge. Throughout the show’s two exhibition halls, buyers will be able to explore an array of integrated solutions and the foremost technologies for smarter textile management and energy control presented by leading suppliers in the field.”

As a service-based industry, the textile-care market has benefited significantly from the extensive economic growth in Asia and is still reflecting a high consumer demand, especially in the past two years. New infrastructures and projects in Asia, including the opening of Shanghai Disneyland, the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics as well as the successful bid of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, are set to accelerate economic development in Asia. Texcare Asia will serve as an effective networking and trade platform to assist industry players in capturing new opportunities created for service-related industries, including businesses relying on the use of professional textile care services.

Texcare Asia is a biennial event organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and China Light Industry Machinery Association. In 2015, the show attracted 153 exhibitors from 19 countries and regions and set a new record with 10,267 visitors from 54 countries and regions, which represented a 20% increase from the 2013 edition.
