The next Texcare Asia is scheduled to take place in Beijing at the China International Exhibition Center from October 28 – 30, 2009.
The fair will build on the success of Texcare Asia 2007, which attracted over 5,700 visitors from 55 countries and regions. More than 135 exhibitors from 17 countries and regions gave distributors, buyers and end-users the opportunity to source a variety of products and services. These included laundry, ironing, dry-cleaning, dying machinery and agents, equipment, textiles and accessories for rental services, laundry and dry-cleaning related measuring instruments.
Asia’s laundry and dry-cleaning sector continues to grow fuelled by rapid urbanization, the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, increased investment into energy efficient equipment, and the trend towards water conservation. Hospitals in particular are moving towards a centralized laundry system to improve quality and conserve energy.
What’s more, laundrettes are adopting efficient automatic washing machines as the cost of labor in China is rising. As a result domestic industry leaders are sourcing sophisticated laundry and dry cleaning equipment from reputable manufacturers exhibiting at Texcare Asia.
