CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, has launched the ITMA Innovation Lab, to emphasise the innovation message to the textile, garment and fashion industry. The focus on innovation at ITMA 2019, which will be held in Barcelona, Spain, from June 20-26, 2019, highlights the event’s theme: Innovating the World of Textiles.

The ITMA Innovation Lab includes well-received features from previous editions, in addition to new initiatives and enhancements. The four main components of the lab are Research & Innovation Pavilion (R&I Pavilion), ITMA Speakers Platform, Innovation Video Showcase, and ITMA Sustainable Innovation Award, according to an ITMA press release.

“By launching the ITMA Innovation Lab feature, we hope to better drive industry focus on the important message of technological innovation and cultivate an inventive spirit. We hope to encourage greater participation by introducing new components, such as the video showcase to highlight our exhibitors’ innovation,” Charles Beauduin, chairman of ITMA services said.

The video showcase will provide a new channel for visitors to learn more about innovative exhibits at ITMA 2019. Exhibitors can submit videos based on topics like raw materials and manufacturing technology, automation and digitalisation: creating new opportunities in the textile and fashion industry, technical textile innovations and manufacturing technology, and sustainable textile and garment manufacturing in the circular economy.

A panel of judges from the global industry will select the videos to be shown at the Speakers Platform. The platform is an excellent avenue for participating R&I Pavilion institutes to present their latest research projects and cutting-edge technological developments. For the first time, guest industry speakers will be invited to share their knowledge and experience with ITMA participants. Some members of the judging panel will also be invited to lead discussions on various topics, thus adding to the vibrancy of the platform.

A total of 27 organisations are participating in the R&I Pavilion which will showcase cutting-edge textile and related research and development projects. Since ITMA 2007, the R&I Pavilion also serves to encourage collaboration among companies, research centres and universities in order to develop novel materials and technologies which will transform the textile, garment and fashion industry.

The ITMA Sustainable innovation award has been created by CEMATEX to recognise the collaborative efforts by the global textile industry to advance business sustainability through innovative solutions, and promote outstanding industry related research. The award comprises two categories: Industry Excellence Award for textile and garment makers, and brands who leverage ITMA exhibitors’ solutions to create green products; and a Research & Innovation Excellence Award, open to Master’s degree students.
