ITMA 2011 has surpassed our expectations – CEMATEX President

The international textile and garment machinery industry converged for the 16th edition of ITMA, the world's most established textile and garment machinery technology exhibition in Barcelona, Spain from 22 to 29 September 2011.

Trade visitorship of over 100,000 from 138 countries was registered for the eight-day event held at Fira de Barcelona Gran Via fairgrounds. Just over 90 per cent of the visitors came from outside of Spain. The international mix of visitors and buyers was very well received by exhibitors.

Mr Stephen Combes, President of CEMATEX said, “ITMA 2011 has surpassed our expectations. Considering that the world is still facing economic difficulties, the vast majority of our exhibitors are delighted with the quality and the number of visitors. According to our national associations, their members have reported significant enquiries and many have taken even more orders than they hoped for.

“The textile and garment industry must be commended for its resilience and willingness to invest and to innovate. The sales and serious enquiries generated from qualified international visitors are greatly appreciated by the exhibitors, and our participants have all given a very positive response to the show.”

A delighted exhibitor, Mr Attilio Camozzi, President of Marzoli, commented: "A lot of commercial negotiations have started and orders have been finalised for approximately 30 million euros with customers from Argentina, India, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan."

Italy fielded the largest contingent of 9 per cent of visitors, followed closely by host country Spain, then India. Germany and Turkey ranked fourth and fifth respectively in the visitorship tally. Making it to the top 10 list from outside of Europe are Brazil and Iran.

“The majority of the visitors are from the textile making hubs in Asia, and Central and South America. Thanks to our extensive promotions, we have been able to attract leading textile and garment makers from these vibrant areas. Being global companies, they need to invest in innovative, yet cost-effective solutions to stay ahead of the competition,” said Ms Sylvia Phua, CEO of MP International, organiser of ITMA 2011 and 2015.
