ShanghaiTex focused on “Smarter Textile. Better Life”

ShanghaiTex 2019 – the 19th International Exhibition on Textile Industry – is to be held in the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) again in November 25-28, 2019. The theme for this year’s edition is “Smarter Textile. Better Life.” The show will focus on four areas — “Textech Galaxy,” “Go Digital,” “Material & Cross-Border Innovation,” and “Go Green.”

Organizers anticipate approximately 1,200 exhibitors showing their technologies on a trade show floor covering 103,500 square meters over nine halls. More than 65,000 visitors from more than 80 countries are expected.

Exhibitor displays will be arranged into 10 thematic zones, with 3 new zones: Technology, Sustainable/Eco-Friendly Technology and Recyclable Materials and the Textech Galaxy/Textech Startup Planet.

The Textech Galaxy is a new parallel event that will explore how technology is transforming aspects of the fashion industry from three angles — artificial intelligence (AI), wearable technology and start-ups. It aims at gathering researchers, engineers and practitioners to discuss and explore promising ideas for the use of AI in fashion. The Textech Startup Planet will provide a platform for global startup companies to showcase their innovations to investors in order to develop business opportunities.
