Italian textile machinery makers excited about ITMA 2015

Italy’s textile machinery producers are excited about the upcoming edition of ITMA, which returns to Italy after a 20 year hiatus and runs from November 12-19, 2015.

Over 380 Italian exhibitors are slated to be present in Milan, a 19 per cent increase compared to those participating four years ago in Barcelona, where the last edition of ITMA was held.

Secondly, an ever bigger achievement is that compared to the previous edition, Italian exhibitors have increased their overall exhibition surface area by 46 per cent.

ACIMIT president Raffaella Carabelli says, “These figures don’t just place Italy as the leader among the countries exhibiting at the trade fair.”

“Above all, they testify to the vitality of our industry and the belief in all of us that Italy’s textile sector is enjoying a period of good health,” he added.

In addition to ITMA, where machinery manufacturers will showcase textile innovations, ACIMIT is also undertaking a lot of activities in order to promote the Italian textile machinery sector.

In 2015, ACIMIT is inviting over 200 textile mill operators from 12 countries like Bangladesh, Iran, Egypt and Pakistan in order to present to them the best of Italian textile technology.

Thanks to ITMA 2015 awards, about ten students from foreign universities in Ethiopia, India, Russia and Vietnam will travel to Italy during ITMA.

They will get the opportunity to visit the ITMA pavilions and discover the innovations proposed by Italian textile machinery sector.

Alongside, the Italian Ministry of Economic Development has acknowledged the significance of the sector, which exports 80 per cent of its production to over 130 countries.

So, a special project to support the presence of Italian companies at the show has been prepared with the support of the Ministry. (AR)
