The 2021 edition of Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo (TXCA & CLE) will now take place from 22–24 December instead of its original late-September date. Organisers say the postponement is due to uncertainty around participants being able to travel to Shanghai at this time, as China continues with its anti-epidemic measures following an increase in Covid cases in late-July.
Following discussions with the fair’s stakeholders, the organisers say they are delaying the event until December to provide more certainty to participants in their preparation. “Taking the government’s guidelines for pandemic containment into account, it was deemed preferable to delay the fair until later in the year to ensure all exhibitors and visitors will be able to travel to Shanghai,” they note.
New dates are confirmed with the fairground and additional public health measures will also be put in place including real identity pre-registration, entry checkpoints to verify the digital health code of all participants and onsite temperature scans. Frequent sanitisation of facilities will take place, and distancing measures will be implemented for seminar attendees.
TXCA & CLE will remain at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre for the new December dates.
This annual event is organised by the China Laundry Association and the China Light Industry Machinery Association, as well as Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and Unifair Exhibition Service Co Ltd.
