Faced with the changes brought about by the ongoing pandemic, China's laundry industry is presented with new challenges and opportunities. The three-day TXCA & CLE 2022 aims to provide an all-encompassing business platform, and will play host to a series of industry specific fringe activities, to boost industry exchanges, strengthen the connection between buyers and suppliers, and promote market recovery.
Two new zones will be added to the show floor this year – the Leasing Laundry Circle, which encompasses the shared linen, uniform rental and laundry areas; and the Luxury Care Zone, which is comprised of the high-end clothing and leather renewal areas. These new zones will bring together high-quality suppliers and manufacturers in related fields. By showcasing the latest technology and innovative models, the aforementioned exhibitors and the industry visitors that they attract can together focus on exploring extensive business opportunities.
The leading brands that have confirmed their participation in the two new zones include:
• Leasing Laundry Circle: Agiletex, Anxin, Datamars, Thermopatch, Kaga Fei, Dushang, Tecbod, Jiehong Nonwoven, Shandong Juntai, Nanhe, Shensilan, Sheng Xuelan, Fidefu, F&C, Tengyu Weaving, Cozy Slipper, Spotag
• Luxury Care Zone: Hanor, Haonr, Mr. Clear, Jieshen, Laise, Yiforlai, Hema Clean
As a loyal exhibitor of TXCA & CLE, Mr Lv Liyi, President of Shanghai Weishi Machinery Co Ltd, is also eager to exhibit at the 2022 edition: "In the largest booth at this year’s fair, Weishi will present its innovative capacity for laundry intelligence and digitalisation. We look forward to gathering in Ningbo with everyone and making new industry friends. We wish for this fair to be a complete success.”
Ms Qi Huiwen, General Manager of China Herbert Kannegiesser GmbH, expressed her belief in the fair’s importance: “In the shadow of the pandemic, the connection between people is particularly valuable. We choose to participate at TXCA & CLE because we believe in the resilience of the Chinese economy and the eventual development of the industry. Channel players want exchanges and the resources needed to stay connected. TXCA & CLE remains an irreplaceable platform for efficient networking and demonstration.”
Evidently, the fair is well-received by the worldwide laundry and textile care industry. In addition to support from exhibitors and visitors, the 2022 fair has received the full backing of over 100 domestic and international industry associations, and visiting delegations of 22 such associations have already confirmed their attendance at the fair this year.
Fringe programme to inspire positive development
The fair’s rich lineup of concurrent events keeps participants abreast of the latest market developments, and will actively promote the development of the industry, as well as focus on cutting-edge technologies in the industry supply chain. At this year's events, in-depth discussions will be conducted on issues that are affecting the development of the global market, such as energy savings, environmental protection, and cost efficiency. This will help visitors and exhibitors understand current market development trends and establish relevant business contacts with industry insiders.
This year's key fringe programme events include the 4th Awards Ceremony of the China Laundry Industry, the China Laundry Industry Innovation and Development Conference, Laundry OnLive, and Exhibitor Product Showcases. Together with the laundry industry associations from across the country, the organising committee of TXCA & CLE will present awards to a number of industry role models – outstanding enterprises and individuals who are still forging ahead despite the impact of the pandemic. The aim of these awards is to inspire laundry practitioners to actively cope with challenges, make innovations, and turn crises into opportunities. Additionally, the China Laundry Industry Innovation and Development Conference will host experience-sharing sessions regarding successful service and operations as well as changes in consumer behaviour.
TXCA & CLE is an annual event 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 show is part of Messe Frankfurt’s textile care events. For further details, please visit www.texcare.com/brand.
