Leading textile machinery manufacturers from around the world are invited to apply for space at the second combined ITMA ASIA + CITME exhibition to be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from 22 to 26 June 2010.

According to the show owners, the mega textile machinery exhibition is expected to draw a huge response despite the current challenging global economic climate.

Explained Miss Maria Avery, Secretary General of CEMATEX, The European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers: “In a world of uncertainty, manufacturers are looking increasingly at cost-cutting measures and value propositions. Textile machinery manufacturers will consolidate their resources and rely on established platforms that deliver great value and sustainability. Hence, we are confident that all the leading brand names will continue to have a presence in credible showcases that are organised by the industry.”

In addition, textile makers are sourcing for innovative solutions and upgrading their facilities to compete in today's difficult global market. The drive for better technological solutions is expected to grow in Asia, especially China.

Textiles is a traditional pillar of China's economy, and the Chinese government has recently launched a stimulus package to restructure the textile industry and to encourage the promotion of new technology and energy conservation. At the same time, the Textile Reviving Programme (TRP) has been put in place to build China into a strong textile country by the year of 2020, and one of the key TRP objectives is the modernisation of production facilities. ITMA ASIA + CITME 2010 is very well timed to take full advantage of these initiatives.

Show owners CEMATEX and Chinese partners - the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC) - are working closely with the world's leading industry associations to boost participation at the 2010 show in order to improve on the already impressive figures from the launch show in 2008. The inaugural event drew 1,368 exhibitors from 30 countries and regions and more than 80,000 trade visitors from 96 countries and regions.

These include the show's special partner association, the Japan Textile Machinery Association, and other collaborating associations - Korea Textile Machinery Association (KOTMA), Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI) and the American Textile Machinery Association (ATMA) as well as the nine member associations of CEMATEX, based in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK whose members are fully committed to ensuring that this show will be the premier event in 2010 for textile machinery buyers.

Sales agents have also been appointed for Hong Kong, India, South Korea and Turkey to assist potential exhibitors with their participation.

Mr Wang Shutian, Secretary General of CTMA, said: “ITMA ASIA + CITME has set a high standard for textile machinery exhibitions in China and the rest of Asia. Our own members in China fully support the event in 2010, and we will be working very closely with all leading industry associations and their members to ensure that the combined show continues to be a relevant and effective platform for sellers and buyers to transact business and to keep abreast of developments in the region.”
