With 10,000 square meters of booked exhibition space, Germany is the largest foreign exhibiting nation at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2008, keeping the main international competitors Italy, Switzerland and Japan on significant distance. 130 German exhibitors present their products and services from July 27 to 31 in Shanghai.

Dedicated to the hosting country:
In order to provide Chinese trade visitors a smooth access to the portfolio of the VDMA member companies at ITMA ASIA + CITME, the VDMA Textile Machinery Association offers a number of services in Chinese: The new Chinese edition of the Buyer's Guide including a CD enabling offline database researches in VDMA's sourcing service as well as the flyer “Come by and see”, listing all exhibiting VDMA member companies according to product sector of stand location are available at the VDMA information booth in the Association Village in hall E2 (booth B03-1).

For the first time ever at an ITMA ASIA, VDMA offers guided press tours in Chinese language. In the afternoon of the first day of the show, three tours along the textile chain will cover spinning and nonwovens machinery (tour 1), knitting and weaving machinery (tour 2) and finishing machinery including washing, bleaching and dyeing technologies (tour 3).

German clusters and contact points:
Within the official German participation, companies show their products in the German Clusters area, organised by VDMA and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. The German Clusters are located in the hall for spinning machinery (W4), the hall for washing, bleaching, dyeing, finishing machinery (E1), the hall for weaving machinery (E6), the hall for knitting and hosiery machinery (E4) and the hall for nonwoven machinery (W4).

Visitors who are interested in technologies Made in Germany are welcome to drop at the booths of the official German participation in halls E1 (booth A06) and W4 (booth D18) as well as at the VDMA booth in the Association Village in hall E2.

Asia is the main export market:
In 2007, Asia was the main export market for German textile machinery. With a share worth 1.85 billion Euro, more than half of the German textile machinery exports went to this region. One billion Euro was sold to China alone.

The most requested machinery in China was knitting and hosiery machinery (521 million Euro), followed by spinning machinery (379 million Euro), finishing machinery including washing, bleaching and dyeing technologies (72 million Euro) and weaving machinery (32 million Euro). Behind the People's Republic as major trade partners are Turkey (408 million Euro) and India (301 million Euro).

Energy saving is the prime issue:
Today the share of energy supply is on the third place within the cost categories for textile production after raw materials and capital costs. This makes energy saving a major issue at ITMA Asia + CITME 2008. The VDMA member companies will show appropriate solutions for reducing power and water consumption all along the textile chain. The new technologies on show in Shanghai enable impressive energy savings and provide an appropriate answer to the rising energy costs.
