First edition of merged trade fair to take place Sept. 25-27

HONG KONG — The first joined Texcare Asia and China Laundry Expo (TXCA & CLE) is set to take place Sept. 25-27 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. 

TXCA & CLE is an annual event organized by the China Laundry Association and the China Light Industry Machinery Association from the industry, as well as Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. and Unifair Exhibition Service Co. Ltd. The joint-venture agreement between the Texcare Asia show and the China Laundry Expo was announced last year.

Organizers say approximately 25,000 visitors are expected to meet with more than 250 exhibitors from 20 different countries and regions across almost 323,000 square feet of trade show space.

Over the course of three days, organizers say TXCA & CLE 2019 will serve as a one-stop sourcing platform for industry stakeholders from the entire textile care supply chain. 

Both visitors and exhibitors will benefit from the business opportunities during Asia’s most influential international exhibition for laundry equipment and technology. Participants can connect with industry stakeholders, gain insights in market trends and build their network in China and abroad.

During the previous editions of the Texcare Asia show and the China Laundry Expo, numerous local and international renowned brands gathered to showcase their latest products and technologies, including, but not limited to laundry, dry cleaning, folding, ironing and dyeing, organizers say. 

After the merger, TXCA & CLE continues to receive great support from previous exhibitors. A number of key brands has already confirmed attendance, including Alliance, BÖWE, Chuandao, Datamars, Ecolab, Electrolux, JENSEN, Kannegiesser, Kreussler, Miele, Oasia, Sailstar, Sea-lion, VEGA, Weishi, and many more. 

One of those key brands and a loyal exhibitor of the Texcare Asia show and the China Laundry Expo, Sea-lion, is excited about the event, according to show organizers. 

“We decided to participate in this year’s exhibition a long time ago and will showcase our latest products,” says Hong Chen, CEO of Jiangsu Sea-lion Machinery Co. Ltd. “Through TXCA & CLE, we can also present the latest achievements of Sea-lion to the industry and expand our global vision, exchange knowledge about the latest technologies and learn from others to facilitate industry communication.”  

“SANKOSHA has always valued the Chinese market and we hope to introduce our high-quality and high-efficiency equipment to Chinese industry peers,” adds Shun Han Chou, CEO of SANKOSHA Manufacturing Co. Ltd. “I am sure the scale and effect of TXCA & CLE will be one of the biggest in the textile care industry.”

Besides big industry names, with the expanded product portfolio and merging of resources, TXCA & CLE says it also received huge support across the global textile care industry. 


The fringe program was composed to reflect the latest developments and technologies that drive the industry supply chain, according to organizers. Topics such as energy saving and cost efficiency capabilities are influencing the market worldwide. The events will respond to these market trends and allow both visitors and exhibitors to stay on top of the latest developments while connecting with industry stakeholders. 

Fringe events include the 2019 International Laundry Industry Summit, the China Laundry Industry Skills Competition and the China Laundry Association Member General Meeting.

The 2019 International Laundry Industry Summit will take place the day before the show, gathering industry professionals, enterprise management and industry elites from around the globe. They will exchange their findings about the latest technologies, dynamics and trends in the industry.
