At present, the Chinese laundry industry is gradually entering a consolidation period with the growth of a large number of foreign brands and domestic well-known brands, while China's textile market is also developing steadily. In 2011, the turnover rate for most domestic laundry equipment manufacturers increased by about 30%, while some even increased by 50%. Since the government is stepping up efforts in its supervision of the domestic laundry industry, corporations are beginning to actively seek out efficient solutions for cost control (operating costs, labour costs, etc.), energy saving, water conservation and many other aspects. The Shanghai International Laundry Facility and Product Show 2014 will meet this demand by providing a one-stop platform for the exchange of information, and where enterprises can explore new business opportunities through networking.

Government & Association Support

The show is being organized by Shanghai UBM Sinoexpo International Co., Ltd. and the Shanghai Association of Washing and Dyeing. An extended network in the industry is also being formed with the washing and dyeing associations from Suzhou, Nanjing, Wuxi, Nantong, etc., and the China Tourist Hotels Association, the Tourist Hotels Association from Shandong province and Zhejiang province, as well as the cleaning industry associations from Beijing, Changsha, Tianjin and other cities, which will guarantee the huge influence of the show in this industry.

Strategic Cooperation with Key Industry Players

The show has also attracted many famous international brands from the laundry industry such as Alliance, Kannegiesser, Jensen, CWS-boco, and also local players such as Haishi, Weishi, Sailstar, Topoly, Zhongshi and Shenguang. One of the show's strengths is that strategic cooperation partnerships are being forged with Sailstar, Topoly and the organizer respectively to promote technological developments and upgrade the industry, together making it an international and top-quality laundry show.

Front-loaded Onsite Events

Rules and regulations in the laundry industry are coming into force one by one in order to upgrade the structure of the laundry industry in China. Accordingly, a series of related onsite events is being designed by the organizer in order to equip the show's attendees with the latest market information and professional skills; these events include a skills contest, rules and regulation analysis, the latest product presentations and demonstrations, etc. The conference topics will cover the following:

  • The concepts and facilities involved in a premium international launderette
  • Large laundry factory operations and management
  • How to run a profitable laundry outlet
  • Analysis of the Laundromat in Europe and America
  • Trends and developments in green washing
  • Laundry Solutions for hotels
  • Laundry Solutions for School/hospitals, nursing homes and other special institutions

With the support of the government and associations, strategic cooperation with industry big brands and a number of quality onsite activities, the Shanghai International Laundry Facility and Product Show 2014 is no doubt a perfect place for professionals from the laundry industry to gather and increase brand awareness, explore new market opportunities and acquire international business contacts.
