ITMA 2019 will feature a number of industry-leading knowledge-sharing events to facilitate sharing and collaboration among global textile and garment industry members. The world's largest textile and garment technology exhibition beginning June 20, 2019, in Spain, will discuss hot button issues such as sustainable innovation, Industry 4.0 and automation.

"The cluster of accompanying events will spotlight key industry challenges and leading-edge solutions that will support industry members' drive for sustainability and competitiveness," said CEMATEX, organiser of ITMA 2019.

"ITMA has evolved beyond its original aim of merely providing a buy-and-sell platform for textile machinery manufacturers. It is now a meaningful platform for all industry stakeholders to share new breakthroughs, brainstorm solutions and explore collaboration," Fritz Mayer, president of CEMATEX.

The 3rd Textile Colourant and Chemical Leaders Forum at ITMA 2019 will focus on the theme: The Circular Economy and Resource Sustainability Strategy. "Discussions will centre on the circular economy and resource sustainability strategy and how textile chemicals and innovative and cleaner technologies can support it under the influence of Industry 4.0 emerging strategic concept," said Andrew Filarowski, chairman of the forum's organising committee and technical director of the Society of Dyers and Colourists.

ITMA will jointly organise the Nonwovens Forum with the International Association for the Nonwovens and Related Industries (EDANA). The one-day event on 21 June will feature discussions on the latest innovations in nonwovens based on the theme: Nonwovens manufacturing processes for the 21st century: more flexible, more efficient, more sustainable.

"We are always exploring ways to help the industry to create a strong foundation for sustainable growth of the nonwovens and related industries through education and dialogue. Hence, we look forward to working with ITMA on the Nonwovens Forum," Pierre Wiertz, general manager, EDANA, said. (RR)
