Yarn Expo Spring 2016 Reports Strong Exhibitor And Buyer Numbers
The latest edition of Yarn Expo Spring concluded last month with a new record set for the exhibitor number. This increased 23 percent compared to 2015 to 309 exhibitors from 11 countries and regions, with the exhibition area also up 40 percent to accommodate this extra demand.
While remaining stable, the visitor figure of 20,527 from 77 countries and regions (2015: 20,719) did not lessen the amount of business taking place at the fair, with many exhibitors reporting strong levels of orders and enquiries from existing and new customers.
More suppliers using Yarn Expo as their preferred platform to access the global yarn market, which was especially the case this edition with buyers from nearly 80 countries and regions attending the fair. Not only are the figures pleasing, but the optimistic feedback expressed by exhibitors and buyers demonstrates the positive atmosphere about the future prospects of the industry.
Industry-leading companies see Yarn Expo as effective platform to engage with quality and target buyers
As Asia’s most reputable yarn and fibre trade event, Yarn Expo is a key platform for well-known global companies to present their newest products and meet new buyers.
The main goal is to connect with downstream buyers directly and met many of them over these three days. Yarn Expo engages a broad range of buyers, and it’s an ideal stage for us to introduce the company and products to our target buyers as well as to establish solid business relationships with them.
This fair has made a significant impact on the business development because the new contacts we’ve gotten over the last two years have improved the business.
Furthermore, knitting yarn is also on track to become one of the most popular products at the fair.
“I think the contacts i made during the fair will develop into serious business” commented Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
