FRANKFURT, Germany — Organizers of Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo (TXCA & CLE) have announced that the event will be pushed back to 2023. The event was scheduled to take place on Nov. 17-19 at the Ningbo International Conference & Exhibition Center in Ningbo, China., but has been delayed because of rising COVID-19 cases in the country.
According to the release provided by organizers, the 2023 event will take place in Shanghai.
This is the third postponement of the trade show. The event was to have been held in August 2022 after being postponed from September 2021.
“Despite the organizers’ 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 release states.
“With all parties eager for the next edition, the organizers are looking forward to providing a platform for the industry to safely gather next year at the Shanghai New International Expo Center,” the release goes on to say. While new dates of the 2023 fair will be announced in due course, the organizers extend their gratitude for participants’ continued patience and understanding.”
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.
