ITMA 2019 to focus on innovating the world of textiles

ITMA, the world's largest textile and garment technology showcase will continue its focus on innovation for its upcoming edition in Barcelona in June 2019, with the main theme of the show being 'Innovating the World of Textiles'. It is expected to host over 1,500 exhibitors from 45 countries spread over 100,000 square metres of net exhibition space.

As many leading textile machinery and raw material manufacturers, and service providers look forward to the exhibition to launch or promote their latest innovations, the organiser of ITMA 2019, ITMA Services, has already been receiving numerous enquiries for participation. Its online space application will open on 4 May 2017.

"The increasingly high level of automation and digitisation in combination with real time data tracking and interconnection has spawned the 4th industrial revolution and the emergence of smart factories. ITMA is a unique showcase of live machinery demonstrations and innovative solutions that boost productivity and profitability," said Fritz P. Mayer, president of CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, which owns the ITMA exhibition.

"For this latest edition of ITMA, we have chosen to focus the industry's attention on innovation, which creates a competitive advantage for manufacturers. Sustainable innovation that drives growth for the textile and garment industry will continue to be emphasised at the exhibition," added Mayer.

"ITMA was last held in Barcelona in 2011. We expect strong response when the exhibition returns to the city after eight years. A host of exciting highlights and knowledge-sharing activities have been planned, which give added value to exhibitors and visitors alike," said AE Roberts, chairman of ITMA Services.

The last ITMA exhibition, held in Milan in 2015, featured exhibits from the entire textile and garment making value-chain spread over 108,268 square metres of net exhibition space. It drew the participation of 1,691 exhibitors from 46 countries and almost 123,000 visitors from 147 countries. (KD)
