From January 21-23, Colombiatex, the main fair for the Colombian textile sector, will be held in Medellin. An exhibition area will be set up by Italian Trade Agency. ACIMIT member companies like Btsr, Color Service, Fadis, Ferraro, Flainox, Itema, Kairos, Laip, Loptex, Mactec, Mcs, Mesdan, Ratti, Scaglia, Zappa, will be exhibiting in this area. In Latin America, Colombia represents a market of considerable interest for textile machinery, especially for the strong development of local fashion sector, well known throughout South America.
“2020 will be a challenging year for our member companies, given the high number of planned exhibitions. We start immediately with two important events. Heimtextil is known for new trends and textile innovations. The drive for digitalisation has distinguished the offer of our manufacturers for some years now. For this reason, it is important for our association to be present in Frankfurt,” said Alessandro Zucchi, president of ACIMIT.
"Colombia is a country whose textile and clothing industry has grown in recent years. The fashion sector has established itself throughout the continent thanks to its dynamism and originality. The presence of Italian manufacturers through collective participation is evidence of the value that the event and the Colombian market have acquired over time for the Italian textile machinery industry," added Zucchi.
ACIMIT represents an industrial sector that comprises roughly 300 manufacturers, which produce machinery for an overall worth of around €2.5 billion, of which 83 per cent are exported.
