Perino by Woolyarns is heading to China at the end of this week to exhibit in the 28th session of SpinExpo Shanghai. The doors of the Shanghai World Expo & Exhibition Center will open on the 30th of August for an exciting 3 day textile event. With over 210 exhibitors, visitors to the trade show will be inspired by knitting, weaving and spinning manufacturers offering their latest innovations and collections. After the success of Paris’ first SpinExpo show and their exhibition at Pitti Filati in Florence, the Perino team are excited to meet with existing and new customers in China.
Professionalism and expertise is what SpinExpo is known for, being one of the most prestigious textile event organisers internationally. Perino by Woolyarns is thrilled to be showing their luxurious brushtail possum blended yarns on the global stage once again. The booth at Shanghai this year will display knitted fabric swatches in premium blends – Cirrus and Nimbus. Visitors to the booth will be able to see and feel garments in all four blends, with their variations in fibre content, handle and aesthetic. Comparisons will also be shown between knitted and woven fabrics.
Woolyarns‘ International Sales Manager Andy May and Marketing Manager Jimad Khan will be hosting the booth and are looking forward to spending some time with their existing contacts and meeting new visitors to the show. “SpinExpo is another great opportunity for Perino by Woolyarns to expand their customer base and further increase the brands awareness within the textile industry. Following on from our success last year at the event, we are excited to exhibit again in 2016.”
For those going to SpinExpo Shanghai this year, the Perino by Woolyarns display will be located at booth D16.
