Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo pushed back to 2022

30 Nov 2021

In support of the Chinese government’s pandemic control measures, the organisers of Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo have announced the deferral of the upcoming edition. Previously scheduled to take place later this year in December, the fair will instead be held in its usual Q3 timeslot from 11 – 13 August 2022 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

Following the recent emergence of local Covid-19 cases in Shanghai and its surrounding areas, several Chinese provinces have stepped up their pandemic control efforts. Uncertainty surrounding the ability of participants to travel safely, as well as the government’s guidance on large scale events were therefore decisive factors in the postponement of TXC & CLE, with the decision taken after extensive consultations with the fair’s stakeholders, and in close contact with the exhibition venue.

The organisers have now set their sights on delivering the best possible platform to support the industry in 2022.  As an international trade fair for the textile care industry, TXCA & CLE offers business openings across the entire supply chain, including machinery, cleaning systems, chemicals, leather care products, tools, peripheries, rental services and more.

TXCA & CLE is organised by the China Laundry Association and the China Light Industry Machinery Association, as well as Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and Unifair Exhibition Service Co Ltd. The 2022 edition will remain at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
