TXCA & CLE 2023 provide Shanghai platform for new technology and opportunities

The textile care market showed just how it had gradually recovered and was finding new growth points, as evidenced by the opening of the Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo (TXCA & CLA), 25–27 September 2023 in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, China.

Fairgoers will be able to source from a 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.

After three years of innovation behind closed doors, TXCA & CLE 2023 are showcasing the industry’s progress and its four major trends – intelligent equipment, digitalisation, service platforming, and industrial data accumulation. The entire supply chain is 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. 

This year’s show is debuting two new zones. The first, the Leasing Laundry Circle, encompasses the shared linen, uniform rental and laundry areas, the Luxury Care Zone is comprised of the high-end clothing and leather renewal areas.

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.

Organisers say they are expecting 20,000 trade buyers to the show, 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.
