The 2020 edition of ITM International Textile Machinery Exhibitions, which brings together the leading brands of the world textile industry, is attracting global textile technology leaders and companies as to be a part of the show. The textile machinery expo will be held at the Tuyap fair and congress centre, in Istanbul, Turkey, from June 2-6, 2018.

Being the meeting point for leading textile technology brands for their global launches, the ITM 2018 has gotten full marks from participants. Hundreds of company representatives in post-event evaluations pointed out the importance of the exhibition for the global textile industry by stating that, thanks to ITM, they have been able to meet with their customers whom they could not meet due to visa problems.

Following the success of the ITM 2018, with both domestic and foreign companies having realised sales worth of millions of euros, and many business agreements signed, applications to participate in the ITM 2020 has increased. Companies that have completed their applications on the first day started counting days to experience the stir of ITM 2020 in Istanbul. The number of booths rented and the expansion booth sizes by companies are precursors of new records to be broken by the ITM 2020 in terms of number of visitors and participants, according to a press release.

In the surveys conducted during the ITM 2018 exhibition, participants and visitors had stated that the duration of the event did not suffice for such a large organisation. With the increase in number of exhibitors, diversity, booth sizes, and the number of machines displayed by the companies resulted in investors and delegations pointing out that the duration needed to be extended for them to visit the exhibition fully and finalise their agreements. Upon heavy demands on this issue, the ITM 2020 exhibition has been extended to five days.

On the other hand, the Hightex international technical textiles and nonwovens exhibition will be held concurrently with ITM 2020. The ITM exhibitions are attracting visitors as it is taking place in Istanbul, the heart of world trade, convenience of transportation and accommodation, Turkey’s having common cultural values with the new textile investors from the Middle East and the Far East countries, the absence of visa issues. The positive feedbacks from the companies and the sales success of the companies indicate that the ITM events, acting as a bridge between the Eastern and the Western textile worlds, will continue to be the meeting point for the world textile industry in 2020 as it has been in the past.
