Over 95% exhibitors' space sold already at ITMA 2015

Global textile and garment technology suppliers have snapped up space at next year's ITMA exhibition in Milan. ITMA 2015, the world's most established textile and garment machinery exhibition, has attracted over 1,300 applicants from 43 countries by the application deadline of 4 July.  As a result, over 95 per cent of the 200,000 square metres of space has been taken up.
 
CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, which owns the ITMA brand, is delighted with the outcome.
 
Mr Charles Beauduin, President of CEMATEX, said: "We are very encouraged by the strong space take-up over the last few weeks. The overwhelming response is testimony of ITMA as a relevant marketing and sourcing platform. It further reinforces the reputation of CEMATEX's global platform.
 
"The textile and clothing sector is one of the most globalised of any industry. Manufacturers competing for a slice of the world market need to invest in better technology to raise productivity and meet more stringent demands on quality. Increasingly they are required to adopt clean technologies to produce eco-friendly products. ITMA's theme of sustainable innovation is timely and resonates with the world's leading textile and garment makers, fashion and lifestyle brands and retailers.”
 
Interest in ITMA from CEMATEX countries is very high, with many companies planning to launch their latest technologies at the exhibition.  Over 750 applications have been received to date from companies in CEMATEX countries, taking just over 70 per cent of the space booked so far. 
 
Several CEMATEX countries have increased the space booked for the 2015 show compared with the 2011 event, including Italy (up 30 per cent), Netherlands (up 20 per cent), France (up 13 per cent), Germany (up 4 per cent) and Sweden (up 2.5 per cent), highlighting the strength and positive market sentiment of European textile machinery manufacturers.
 
The top 5 countries in terms of space booked are Italy (34 per cent), Germany (25 per cent), Turkey (7 per cent), Switzerland (7 per cent) and India (6 per cent). 
 
The top 5 countries in terms of number of applicants are Italy (31 per cent), Germany (20 per cent), India (13 per cent), China (10 per cent) and Turkey (9 per cent). It is interesting to note that the two Asian giants in textile manufacturing are also fielding a large number of exhibitors to ITMA 2015.
 
The top 5 sectors are finishing (24 per cent), spinning (16 per cent), weaving (14 per cent), knitting (14 per cent) and printing (10 per cent).
