90% of stand space for TXCA & CLE 2023 already sold in Shanghai

With still three months remaining before this year’s Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo (TXCA & CLE) opens its doors in Shanghai, most of the exhibition space has been booked, according to organisers Messe Frankfurt. More than 200 exhibitors have confirmed their participation, hailing from 13 countries and regions including China, France, Germany, Japan, and the US. Organisers expect 20,000 buyers to join them to renew old connections and explore the latest industry innovations.

The trade fair for textile laundry, leather care, cleaning technology and equipment will be held 25–27 September, covering an expected 25,000sqm of floor space at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. 

With pandemic restrictions lifted, the textile care industry is adjusting to the new norms of standardisation, specialisation, and digital intelligence and this Asian trade fair is primed to help facilitate the next technological revolution in the sector.

In a move that raises the bar for smart washing, two new zones will be added to the show floor this year – the Leasing Laundry Circle, which encompasses the shared linen, uniform rental and laundry areas; and the Luxury Care Zone, which is comprised of the high-end clothing and leather renewal areas. 

Suppliers that have already confirmed their participation include Alliance, Chuandao, CSM, Fagor, Girbau, Jensen, Kannegiesser, Laundrymate, Oasis, Sankosha, Sea-Lion, Weishi, and more.

Ms Qi Huiwen, MD of Herbert Kannegiesser Laundry Equipment (Shanghai), said: “We are hopeful that TXCA & CLE 2023 will reunite the industry, and that it will be both well-attended and business-friendly. We are optimistic that the fair will continue to lead the textile care industry's high-quality development, showcase China's achievements and communicate the industry's selling points internationally.”

This year's fair has received support from domestic and international industry associations. Over 90 such institutions from China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan will continue to provide support, while more than 10 organisations from Canada, France, Germany, Korea, Malaysia, the Netherlands, and more have also confirmed their active participation.

The show’s fringe programme will promote the development of the industry and highlight the cutting-edge technology of its supply chain, with key topics including energy saving, emission reduction, standardisation, and digital intelligence.

Confirmed events include the 4th Awards Ceremony of the China Laundry and Dyeing Industry, the 4th China Public Textile Laundry Summit, the 13th National Laundry and Dyeing Industry Vocational Skills Competition Grand Final, as well as Exhibitor Product Showcases and Laundry OnLive.

TXCA & CLE is an annual event organised by the Laundry Committee of China General Chamber of Commerce and the China Light Industry Machinery Association, as well as Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and Unifair Exhibition Service Co Ltd.
