2018 The First World Textile Merchandising Conference (WTMC) will be held at the Keqiao District, Shaoxing City of east China's Zhejiang Province in September 20-21, 2018.

Nearly 1,000 leaders and representatives in the well-known enterprises of the textile industry, top fashion organizations, industrial associations and design colleges from more than 20 countries including Italy, the United States and France will attend the conference, where they will discuss the status quo and future trends of the global textile industry and share their opinions on the development of the industry.

This conference will include an opening ceremony, a theme conference, roundtable sessions, parallel forums and site visits.

The theme conference will witness the establishment of the WTMC Council. The four parallel forums respectively themed as “Opening-up, Science & Technology, Fashion, Green Growth”, will see participants share their ideas on the development trends and cutting-edge technologies of the textile industry in the future, highlight the development momentum of the global textile fashion industry, explore the transformation of China’s textile industry and search for the new forms for the sustainable development of the industry.

"Holding the World Textile Merchandising Conference at Keqiao will definitely broaden the market and bring about more opportunities," said Chen Dapeng, vice president of China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC). Keqiao, as the largest hub for textile enterprises and the most authoritative center releasing textile indexes in China as well as the world's largest pivot for textile trade, boasts advantages in trade volume and prestige. Relying on the global cooperation network built at the conference, Keqiao will exist as an industrial symbol, making China’s textile industry more globally visible and bringing more development opportunities.

The conference will release "Keqiao on Silk Road, Textile for the World" action plan, which features east and west routes. The west route is geared towards high-end markets of Europe and America in an attempt to set up Shaoxing Keqiao Fabric Museums in New York, Milan, Paris and other international fashion centers and world-famous fabric exhibitions. The east route will reach out to countries and regions along the Belt and Road and hold fabric exhibits, business matchmaking conferences and set up exhibition centers.  (Edited by Yang Qi, kateqiyang@xinhua.org)
