ITMA ASIA to see over 1,500 exhibitors

Over 1,500 domestic and international textile machinery manufacturers from over 26 economies will be exhibiting at ITMA ASIA which runs from October 21-25, 2016 in Shanghai.

“At the close of space applications, over 90 per cent of the 180,000 square metres of exhibition space had been sold,” a press release from the organisers said.

Chinese exhibitors make up the biggest country group, booking over 65 per cent of the total exhibition space, while other top participating economies are Germany, Italy, Japan, Switzerland and Taiwan.

Charles Beauduin, president of CEMATEX, said, “The high level of interest from exhibitors has reaffirmed ITMA ASIA as the leading marketing platform for textile machinery manufacturers seeking to tap the China market.

“This recognised platform will ensure that the show continues to be a relevant platform for sellers and buyers to transact business and to take advantage of the vast potential that China offers,” he added.

Exhibits at the combined exhibition are organised into sectors based on manufacturing processes, and spinning machinery forms the largest sector.

“This is followed by finishing, knitting and weaving. In addition, the nonwovens sector has seen a 20 per cent increase from the last combined show in 2014,” the organisers added in the press release.

The organisers further added that it is expected that demand for technical textiles and nonwovens products will rise in the coming years.

Gu Ping, vice president of China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) said, “As China's textile industry continues its transformation, the demand for advanced machinery and technology is on the rise.”

“For textile manufacturers to keep ahead of the industry, they need to readjust their strategy to enhance overall production efficiency,” Ping informed.

“They should adopt a longer-term outlook to focus on the quality of their products which will ultimately contribute to their company's bottom line,” he advised.

“This will lead to a demand for new machinery and technology to modernise and upgrade their existing textile equipment,” Ping observed.

The show will be held at the new National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai, located in the Hongqiao business district, which features state-of-the-art facilities and easy accessibility.

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. (AR)
