ATME-I will provide textile machinery, equipment, products and service suppliers a broad textile and apparels industry base to showcase their products and services. American Textile Machinery Association (ATMA) traces its beginning and that of ATME-I to the International Cotton Machinery Exposition in Atlanta in 1881.

The agreement between Messe Frankfurt USA and ATMA follows the launch earlier last year of Texprocess Americas incorporating SPESA EXPO.

David Audrain, President of Messe Frankfurt stated that “We are extremely pleased with ATMA's decision to continue the successful relationship begun last year. Building on the launch of Texprocess Americas we believe that the expansion of Techtextil North America to include ATMA's ATME-I creates the most important co-location of textile industry events in the Americas. Our goal is to give buyers the best value for their time investment, which means providing them with the most comprehensive selection of manufacturers at our respective shows.”

Speaking on behalf of ATME-I, American Textile Machinery Association (ATMA) Chairman and President of Argus Fire Control, Mike Viniconis commented: “After delivering a strong and well-attended ATME-I 2010 this past May, co-located with Techtextil North America and SPESA Expo, ATMA is pleased to again provide in Atlanta a dynamic platform for broadly defined textile industries in 2012.

"We expect excellent customer attendance from the entire textile processing and applications chain. This again will be a very significant event for our industry with numerous networking opportunities, educational seminars and business and technical workshops supporting the trade shows. Anyone who is in the textile business in the Americas and beyond should recognize that this is a „must-attend event.”

“ATMA believes that continuing ATME-I – the American Textile Machinery Exhibition– International – within Techtextil North America provides the best possible resource for the textile industry,” according to ATMA President Clay D. Tyeryar, CAE. “We are delighted to return to Atlanta in 2012 as part of the co-location of Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas, as we continue to service the wants and needs of our members and their customers.”

ATMA and its direct predecessors have a proud history of adapting to customer wants and needs, here and abroad. Following the 1881 Cotton Machinery Expo, a succession of textile machinery shows were organized by primarily New England-based manufacturers. Through ATMA, theyeventually took ATME-I to Greenville, S.C. in 1969 and following several shows thereafter, moved ATME-I to Atlanta, in 2006.
