The five-day ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014 concluded successfully at the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre on 20 June 2014. It received enthusiastic response, attracting visitorship of around 100,000 from 102 economies - an increase of 7 per cent over the attendance recorded at the 2012 show. 
 
Some 80 per cent of the visitors were from China. Over twenty per cent of the visitors were from overseas, the top economies being India, Japan, Chinese Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia and Turkey.
 
Mr Charles Beauduin, President of CEMATEX, said: “Most of our exhibitors were delighted with the high-quality trade visitors. The success of the show reinforces the reputation of ITMA ASIA + CITME as the most effective business platform in China and indeed the whole of Asia.”
 
The combined show is owned by CEMATEX, together with its Chinese partners – the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China International Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC). It is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co Ltd and co-organised by MP Expositions Pte Ltd. 
 
The total gross exhibition area at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014 exceeded 150,000 square metres and spanned 13 halls, making it the largest combined show to date. There were almost 1,600 exhibitors from 28 economies taking part in the five-day show.
 
Mr Wang Shutian, President of CTMA, explained, “The 2014 exhibition showcased a comprehensive range of technologies from around the world. ITMA ASIA + CITME has now emerged as the must-visit event for Asian buyers sourcing a wide range of solutions to help them be more competitive. Hence, the products on display included those that boost automation and energy-saving features.”
 
In terms of exhibit space, Chinese exhibitors top the list, boosted by rapid increase in Chinese textile machinery manufacturing capacity and development. They were followed by participants from Germany, Japan, Italy and Switzerland. The biggest exhibit sector was spinning, followed by washing/dyeing/bleaching/printing/finishing, knitting and weaving.
 
Thanks to the successful staging of the 2014 exhibition, interest is high for the next show. The 2016 exhibition will be held at the new National Convention and Exhibition Centre in the Hongqiao business district of Shanghai from 24 to 28 October 2016.
