Truly global perspective on technical innovations at ITMA + CITME
Mar '08
Overseas exhibitors from the CEMATEX countries and Japan will present a powerful display of latest textile manufacturing technology at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2008 in July.

With all 126,500 sq. metres of stand space now fully booked, the exhibition, to be held from July 27 to 31, is guaranteed to be China's biggest-ever textile machinery show.

Chinese machinery producers will, naturally, provide the largest national group of exhibitors at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2008, but the full participation of companies from both Europe and Japan will ensure that visitors will be offered a truly global perspective on technical innovations across the entire processing sequence, from fibre to finished fabric.

Breaking new ground as the first combined show – uniting the global ITMA brand with the leading Chinese exhibition - the 2008 edition of ITMA ASIA + CITME 2008 clearly has a unique and unrivalled appeal for both visitors and exhibitors.

It is now part of a cycle of worldwide events that includes the four-yearly ITMA shows in Europe, and follows on from the previous ITMA ASIA events in Singapore in 2001 and 2005, and the series of 10 CITME shows held in Beijing, most recently in 2006.

CEMATEX, the European committee of textile machinery manufacturers, owns the ITMA name, and represents nine national associations in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. The biggest names from each of these countries will be among a substantial European presence in Shanghai.

Says CEMATEX Secretary General Maria Avery: “European machinery manufacturers are acknowledged as the major players in driving technical innovation in textile production methods.

Their depth of know-how, commitment to R&D and attention to quality in both equipment and end-product are well-deserved, and these characteristics make their exhibits the star attractions at any major show.

“We are confident that, at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2008, visitors will see many exciting new developments in fibre and yarn production, weaving, knitting and finishing not forgetting the vital contribution made by ancillary equipment such as testing and quality control systems and automation solutions.
