Messe Frankfurt , the organizer of the Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles Fair, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, and Yarn Expo Spring, recently announced that the spring editions of these fairs will be postponed. Originally scheduled for March 10-12, 2021, a new date for these shows will be announced in  the near future. Messe Frankfurt made the decision along with the co-organizers of the fairs to comply with local authority guidelines.

Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained the decision: “In compliance with the Shanghai Municipal Center for Health Promotion’s pandemic prevention and control guidelines for exhibition activities, and after careful evaluation and discussion with relevant stakeholders, we have decided to postpone the three fairs to a later date. We have begun a discussion with the three fairs’ stakeholders as well as the fairground regarding a new date, and aim to hold the rescheduled shows within March to minimise the impact to our exhibitors and buyers and still accommodate their buying needs for the current spring / summer season. While the new dates will be announced shortly, we are grateful in the meantime for the understanding and patience of all those involved.”
