IMB Select closes with good results
Nov '10
After a two-day fair, the first IMB Select closed its doors on Wednesday with good results. The new trade show format, developed in collaboration with the industry, provided the ideal conditions for the presentation and discussion of new developments and advancements in process control and data exchange along the textile value chain.

“We're very satisfied with the response. We would be delighted if Koelnmesse continues to pursue this concept. This could be the starting signal for a very successful series of IMB fairs in future,” said one major exhibitor, summing up the good mood that pervaded the hall.

“All things considered, the event's new approach proved convincing. The results and experiences from the IMB Select 2010 give us every reason to be optimistic about 2012,” said Gerald Böse, CEO of Koelnmesse.

“The combination of the IMB Select with its high degree of specialisation in information and communications technology and the IMB – World of Textile Processing here in Cologne represents an international platform for the global garment industry and textile supply chain that is unique the world over,” added Böse.

Virtually all the exhibitors were equally impressed by the high quality of the IMB Select visitors. “Lots of contacts – international ones too,” was the general tenor amongst the exhibiting companies. In total, 568 trade visitors from 21 countries informed themselves about the product portfolios of the 53 exhibiting companies from 8 countries.

Both garment manufacturers like S.Oliver, Esprit, Hugo Boss, Puma, Wolford, Brax, van Laack and Marc O'Polo – to name just a few – and retailers like Galeria Kaufhof and Sinn Leffers journeyed to the IMB Select in Cologne. The exhibitors were particularly satisfied with the quality and decision-making authority of the visitors.
