Barcelona to host ITMA expo in 2019

CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, has announced that the 18th edition of ITMA—the world's largest exhibition of textile and garment machinery technology—will be held at the Fira de Barcelona exhibition centre in Barcelona, Spain, from June 20-26, 2019.
 
ITMA was last held in Barcelona in 2011 when the number of visitors exceeded 100,000 from 138 countries.  Ninety per cent of the visitors came from outside of Spain, and the international mix of visitors and buyers was very well received by exhibitors.
 
The international bid for hosting ITMA in 2019 was won by Fire de Barcelona after fierce competition from three other short-listed bidders out of an original list of 9 venues. 
 
“We are delighted to bring ITMA back to Barcelona. The selection process took us 2 years and our investigations into all the 9 potential venues and their services were very detailed.  We enjoyed an extremely successful show in Barcelona in 2011 and our exhibitors and visitors were very impressed with the facilities and infrastructure on site. We are looking forward to another great event there in 2019,” Charles Beauduin, president of CEMATEX said in a media statement.
 
Agustin Cordon, CEO of Fira de Barcelona, added “We are delighted and honoured to have been selected once more to host the ITMA show, and our team is looking forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors back to the city. We gained a lot of experience from working on the 2011 show and are confident of achieving another very successful event.”
 
For ITMA 2019, CEMATEX has appointed an official accommodation agency, B-network, to manage the hotel accommodation services following on from its very professional and successful management of accommodation for the 2011 show.  
 
Meanwhile, preparations for this year's ITMA in Milan, to be held from November 12-19, are in full swing, with over 1,600 exhibitors from more than 40 countries taking part. More than 100,000 visitors from over 140 countries are expected at the expo.
 
Considered the 'Olympics' of textile machinery exhibitions, ITMA has a 64-year history of displaying the latest in machinery and software for every single work process of textile making. It is held every four years in Europe. (RKS)
