ITMA Asia + CITME 2016 to have over 1,600 exhibitors
Oct '16
More than 1,600 exhibitors will take part in the ITMA Asia + CITME 2016 international exhibition for textile solutions to be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre in Shanghai from October 21 to 25. Textile makers from around the world will showcase their cutting-edge solutions to over 100,000 trade visitors from the global textile industry.

Products will be showcased based on categories for the convenience of visitors, and stringent controls are being adopted to protect intellectual property, organisers said. The exhibition enjoys strong support from all major trade associations around the world. It will be held at a venue that spreads across 180,000 square metres.

Visitors can explore innovative yet cost-effective solutions for the industry, and evaluate and compare them on the spot. Live demonstrations of machines will be held at the exhibition and visitors can get first-hand information from manufacturers.

The event combines the unique strengths of the ITMA brand and China's most important textile event -CITME. This move to combine the two shows into one mega high-quality event is strongly supported by all nine CEMATEX European textile machinery associations, China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA).

“The combined show is now well-entrenched in the textile machinery exhibition calendar. It draws all the leading textile and garment manufacturers and is an essential showcase for the Asian market, offering plenty of business and networking opportunities,” said Maria Avery, secretary general of CEMATEX.

The show is owned by CEMATEX, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC). It is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co Ltd and co-organised by MP Expositions Pte Ltd, while the Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA) is a special partner.

Online registrations for the event will close on October 18, 2016. (KD)
