This year’s edition of Cinte Techtextil China marked the first time the fair was held annually, and the second year physical and online participation options were available, with both aspects well received by exhibitors and visitors. Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd elaborated: “The response from our exhibitors this year was the Chinese market is still growing strongly, and having an annual edition allows them to benefit from these opportunities on a more regular basis. The domestic economy has shown strong resilience over 2020 and so far in 2021, and this has allowed the technical textiles and nonwovens sector to maintain the growth momentum it has experienced over the past years. As more economies return to normal in 2022, we expect export orders for the sector to receive a further boost which will benefit those overseas companies with business in the Chinese market.”
Ms Wen continued: “We hope that by September 2022 all of our overseas exhibitors and visitors can join us in Shanghai once again. For those suppliers considering to participate, we understand that there is still uncertainty in planning that far ahead, so we encourage them to contact us to discuss the flexible participation options which are available.”
Exhibitor experiences at 2021 edition
“Cinte Techtextil China always presents us with new business opportunities, and this year the buyers are of high quality as usual. As vaccines become more universally available, I expect the global industry to start growing in the second half of this year, and China will definitely have the largest growth. So we will be back next year with the German contingent.”
Mr Wei Jia, Account Manager, PerlonNextrusion (Shanghai) Co Ltd, China
“After exhibiting at the fair for the first time last year we thought it was great, so we came again this year. The quality of the buyers is good, and we’ve found some new potential clients already. China is the only stable market at the moment, so I’m definitely optimistic about the prospects here. And it makes sense to hold the fair once a year as the domestic nonwovens industry is experiencing rapid growth.”
Mr Eric Ni, Senior Manager, China Supply Chain Marketing, Fabrics, Garments and Nonwovens, Cotton Council International, USA
