HONG KONG — Organizers of the Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo (TXCA & CLE) report they have decided to postpone the event until 2023.
TXCA & CLE was scheduled for Nov. 17-19 in Ningbo but rising COVID-19 cases in the country caused organizers to defer the fair to 2023 in Shanghai.
The event was originally scheduled to take place in September 2021 and moved to August 2022 before being delayed to November.
The decision was made to prioritize the safety of fairgoers and to support the government’s pandemic containment measures.
Organizers say that despite their best efforts throughout the year to hold TXCA & CLE 2022, after discussions with stakeholders, they determined that postponing the fair was the necessary course of action.
The organizers add that they are looking forward to providing a platform for the industry to safely gather next year at the Shanghai New International Expo Center.
Dates of the 2023 fair will be announced when they are made available.
TXCA & CLE is an annual event organized 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.
