FRANKFURT, Germany—Messe Frankfurt will launch a third home-textiles trade show in China this year.

Called Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles Spring Edition, the show is scheduled to take place from April 2-4 at the INTEX Shanghai and Shanghaimart trade-show centers. It’s being co-organized by Messe Frankfurt with the Sub-Council of the Textile Industry and the China Home Textile Association. According to a Messe Frankfurt statement, it will function as a sister event with the Intertextile Guangzhou Home Textile and Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles trade shows.

Messe Frankfurt said the new show is geared toward meeting the growing demand for home textiles in China. The April date is “a traditional sourcing period for bedding and upholstery fabrics,” and the event has already brought in more than 190 exhibitors from major bedding and upholstery manufacturers, Messe Frankfurt said.
