After three years apart, with changing needs in the global economy and the growth of consumer demand, the textile care market has gradually recovered, and industry insiders are eager to strengthen international business cooperations and find new growth points. To help facilitate collaboration, a number of fringe events will be running concurrently with Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo, set to take place from 25 – 27 September 2023. Equipped with the industry insights afforded to them, fairgoers at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre will be able to source from a wide variety of over 330 domestic and international exhibitors across 25,000 sqm. These include not only the major brand names, but also over 90 suppliers making their debuts at this edition.
Exhibitors at this edition hail from 15 countries and regions, namely China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Türkiye, the UK, and the US. Well-known suppliers include Alliance, Chuandao, CSM, Fagor, Girbau, Jensen, Kannegiesser, Laundrymate, Oasis, Sankosha, Sea-Lion, Weishi, and many more.
After three years of innovation behind closed doors, TXCA & CLE 2023 will showcase the industry’s progress and its four major trends – intelligent equipment, digitalisation, service platforming, and industrial data accumulation. The entire supply chain will be present, including machinery, systems and accessories, chemicals and consumables, digital and intelligent solutions, energy saving and environmental protection technologies, leather care products, rental services, and more.
With global players looking to capitalise on current market trends, this year’s show will debut two new zones. The first, the Leasing Laundry Circle, encompasses the shared linen, uniform rental and laundry areas, and contains brands such as Agiletex, Datamars, LINEWAY, SENPU XUNJIE, and Finove. Meanwhile, the Luxury Care Zone is comprised of the high-end clothing and leather renewal areas, with exhibitors including Haonr, Laise, DINASI, HIBEST, and Zhongxin Weiye.
Over the three-day show, a series of fringe events will be held, such as high-standard vocational skills competitions, as well as industry forums and networking activities, where laundry practitioners gather to share their insights and discuss future development. Featured events include:
The 13th Laundry and Dyeing Industry Professional Skills Competition
Taking place every two years, this is the most influential vocational skills competition in the washing and dyeing industry. During TXCA & CLE 2023, the finals of the stain removal, leather care, public laundry care, ironing, and clothing mending projects will be held at the fairground.
2023 Textile Care & Laundry Industry Networking Event
One of the Asian laundry industry’s most business-friendly networking events aims to provoke important conversations regarding pandemic-related industry changes; opportunities and challenges within Asia’s recovering hotel tourism and laundry industries; cooperative growth points between Chinese and Southeast Asian laundry markets; and how to apply the circular economy to current business practices.
4th Awards Ceremony of the China Laundry Industry
The organising committee will honour a group of key industry players whose business acumen and innovation are worthy of study, in order to inspire other laundry practitioners to actively face challenges, seek invention, and turn crises into opportunities.
4th Awards Ceremony of the China Laundry Industry
This forum brings together representatives from the field of public laundry and textile cleaning, and serves as an important platform that focuses on the latest development trends. Featuring technology seminars, keynote speeches and constructive dialogues, the forum will focus on intelligent production and innovative management within the industry.
TXCA & CLE Laundry OnLive
Laundry OnLive offers more than its base function as a live broadcast platform – it is a call for laundry insiders from around the world to intermingle beyond the physical confines of the international industry showcase in Shanghai.
As the leading trade fair for the laundry and textile care industry in Asia, TXCA & CLE provides business openings across the supply chain, and has become a strong platform for upstream and downstream enterprises. The show is expected to channel a strong visitor flow of over 20,000 trade buyers. Currently, a range of industry associations are organising visitor delegations from across Europe, and from Asian countries and regions such as China, Hong Kong, India, Macau, Malaysia, and Singapore, with over 30 delegations expected to attend.
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.
