Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo (TXCA & CLE) to take place in 2023

2 Nov 2022

Previously scheduled to be held from 17 – 19 November 2022 in Ningbo, following rising Covid-19 cases in the country the organisers have decided to defer the fair to 2023 in Shanghai. The decision was made to prioritise the safety of fairgoers, and to support the government’s pandemic containment measures.

Despite the organisers’ best efforts throughout the year to hold TXCA & CLE 2022, after discussions with stakeholders they determined that postponing the fair was the necessary course of action. With all parties eager for the next edition, the organisers are looking forward to providing a platform for the industry to safely gather next year at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. While new dates of the 2023 fair will be announced in due course, the organisers extend their gratitude for participants’ continued patience and understanding.

As the leading trade fair for the laundry and textile care industry in Asia, TXCA & CLE provides business openings across the supply chain, including machinery, systems and accessories, chemicals and consumables, digital and intelligent solutions, energy saving and environmental protection technologies, leather care products, rental services and more.

TXCA & CLE is an annual event organised by the Laundry Committee of China General Chamber of Commerce and the China Light Industry Machinery Association, as well as Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and Unifair Exhibition Service Co Ltd.
