Sustainable Textile Leaders Roundtable Dialogue @ ITMA

May '11
CEMATEX and its organiser, MP International, is launching a global platform at ITMA 2011 to share trends, exchange views and collaborate for the textile industry's sustainable future. The Sustainable Textile Leaders Roundtable Dialogue will see participation from major textile machinery manufacturers, textile and apparel producers, and brands and retailers when they converge at ITMA 2011 this September.

Organised as part of ITMA's 60th anniversary celebrations, the inaugural dialogue is scheduled to be held on the opening day, 22 September 2011, at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via.

Ms Sylvia Phua, Chief Executive Officer of MP International said, “Besides focusing on innovation and creativity, industry players need to tackle pressing environmental issues to ensure the long term sustainability of their businesses and secure their place in the global economy. We are pleased to partner with Textile Exchange to launch this dialogue to help all textile leaders in their quest for sustainability.”

Consumers are increasingly demanding eco-friendly products and supporting businesses that adopt eco-friendly processes, hence textile makers need to explore cost efficient and environmentally friendly solutions to meet rapidly growing demand. Companies with strong environmental and social commitments who spoke at a recent Textile Exchange conference also noted they had increased sales - even during the recession - as consumers chose to support companies with such initiatives.

Ms LaRhea Pepper, Senior Director of Textile Exchange said, “Textile sustainability enables the entire value chain to find cost savings and production efficiencies and pass those savings on to customers, while reducing the impact of textile production on people and the environment. With this as the key motivation behind the inaugural dialogue, we will be working closely with the organiser of ITMA 2011 to ensure we make a positive difference in the global textile industry.”

Invited speakers will share the latest on sustainable innovations, machinery advances and trends for the future that will impact all players in the textile and garment making value chain.

Show owner, CEMATEX, is supportive of this dialogue session. Mr Stephen Combes, President of CEMATEX said, “As the largest textile and garment machinery exhibition in the world, ITMA is well positioned to integrate machinery manufacturers into the entire value chain for sustainable production. The issue of sustainability is part of our longstanding commitment to help the world textile industry innovate and meet the global challenges.”

Celebrating 60 years of innovation

ITMA has been the platform for innovation since its inception, and this year being the 60th anniversary, show owner, CEMATEX, is organising various special events to complement the exhibition and celebrate its long history of innovation.

Apart from the Sustainable Textile Leaders Roundtable Dialogue, ITMA 2011 will present the World Textile Summit, Textile Dyestuff and Chemical Industry Leaders' Forum and Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI)'s Advanced Textiles forum.
