27 May 2024

Shanghai, 27 May 2024. Two months before the fair, anticipation runs high for Asia’s leading laundry and textile care trade fair – with booths filling up well in advance, over 250 exhibitors from 15 countries and regions have already registered. From 2 – 4 August at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, key industry players will demonstrate their freshest products and technologies across sub-sectors including textile laundry, leather care, cleaning machinery and supplies, and more. With innovations, networking opportunities, and expert insights all under one roof, visitors and exhibitors alike are set to benefit from the one-stop platform that unites the entire textile care supply chain.

In the Chinese textile care industry, which is valued at around USD 22.7 billion[1], the annual show has established itself as the benchmark for buyers in multiple related sectors. These include laundry factories, dry cleaners, leather care shops, hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, and schools. With last year’s show attracting 27,247 visitors, including 10% international buyers, 2024’s anticipated strong visitor flow has ensured a comprehensive range of products and services onsite, from washing equipment to chemicals, accessories, rental services, intelligent products, and more.

During previous editions, numerous renowned domestic and international brands gathered to unveil their latest products and technologies reflecting the entire spectrum. The fair will also welcome new exhibitors such as AiQi, Changjian, Devotion Boiler, Haishihua, Huayuan, Keling, Kiosoft, Kuaijie, Ruiying, SEKO, VANCH, Wanzl, Xingcheng, Yaojiang, Zhonglan, among others.

Rental service exhibitor numbers reach a new high
The number of registered exhibitors in the rental sector has reached a record-breaking 35, demonstrating the growing prominence of rental services in the industry. Exhibitors include Datamars, Finove, Huayuan, KAGA FEI, Kiosoft, NIUZHANGGUI, PORRAY, SENPU XUNJIE, Spotag, Tengyu Weaving, Thermopatch, and YALAN. As the industry undergoes digital transformation, rental service is steadily emerging as a new market trend. Digital technology is expected to drive even faster growth in the future market, and provide consumers with higher-quality and more convenient laundry services.

Extensive industry support
Mr Liyi Lyu, Chairman of Shanghai Weishi Machinery – a frequent exhibitor – is looking forward to new opportunities: "At last year’s show, we presented our latest intelligent and digital equipment technology, capturing significant attention onsite. This show provides us with a platform full of opportunities and strengthened cooperation amongst industry players. With a strong focus on international business, we will participate again in 2024, looking forward to meeting old and new worldwide friends. We strive to grow and strengthen our brand on the international stage."

Making his debut at this year’s show, Mr Yino Yin, National Sales Director of SEKO China, commented on the themes of innovation and transformation in the industry: "The laundry industry faces numerous global challenges, with heightened public expectations for sanitation in public spaces. In need of transformation, China's cleaning and hygiene industry seeks innovative solutions. As the global leader in dilution and distribution of cleaning and hygiene materials, we bring authentic and cutting-edge technology from Italy to China through this exceptional platform, driving the industry’s prosperous development."

Besides exhibitors, with the expanded product portfolio and merging of resources, the upcoming fair has garnered widespread support from both domestic and international industry associations. These include more than 100 institutions and organisations from 13 countries and regions, including Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, and Singapore – laying a solid foundation for a successful show.
