With 1,691 exhibitors, the 17th edition of international textile machinery expo ITMA 2015 in Milan has seen the highest participation since the show was launched 64 years ago in 1951.
 
The record 1,691 exhibitors from 46 countries and economies at this year's ITMA betters the previous record set by ITMA 2007 when 1,451 exhibitors from 38 countries took part in the exhibition.
 
“ITMA has a very strong reputation as the world's most established textile and garment technology exhibition. We are grateful to our exhibitors and industry partners who have put their faith in the ITMA brand. The key to ITMA's success is its ability to reinvent itself and remain relevant to the industry that it serves,” said Charles Beauduin, president of the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (CEMATEX) which owns the ITMA series, in a media statement.
 
With net exhibit space of over 108,000 square metres, occupying 11 halls of the Fiera Milano Rho fairgrounds, ITMA 2015 is about 20 per cent larger than the 2011 exhibition.
 
The largest space, totaling 73,830 square metres, is occupied by exhibitors from CEMATEX countries. Country-wise, the largest space booked is by Italian exhibitors, followed by Germany, Switzerland and Spain. 
 
The largest group of participants from non-CEMATEX countries is from Turkey, followed by China, India and Japan.
 
In terms of number of exhibitors, Italy leads the tally with 453, followed by Germany with 238, China 184 and India 158.
 
The top five sectors are: dyeing and finishing which occupies 23 per cent of the space, with 303 exhibitors; spinning, 14 per cent of the space, 290 exhibitors; weaving, 12 per cent of the space, 179 exhibitors; knitting and hosiery, 13 per cent of the space, 128 exhibitors; and printing, 10 per cent of the space, 113 exhibitors.
 
The theme of ITMA 2015 is 'Master the Art of Sustainable Innovation'. The exhibition is not only a mega technology showcase, but it also features initiatives underpinning the focus on sustainability. (RKS)
