The success of International Textile Machinery (ITM) exhibition, which broke a record with 1150 participants from 64 countries and 59,000 visitors in 2018, will repeat itself again this year. ITM 2020, which has drawn great attention from moment its sales and reservations started, approached 100 per cent occupancy rate with increase in number of participants.

This year, ITM 2020 exhibition, which is organised with the partnership of TUYAP Tüm Fuarcilik Yapim AS and Teknik Fuarcilik AS, and in cooperation with Textile Machinery and Accessories Industrialists Association (TEMSAD) from June 2-6, is expected by its participating companies and visitors with great enthusiasm.

As the number of booths sold have increased and companies have expanded the size of the booth square metres, there is no more vacant booths in some of the halls of ITM 2020 exhibition. It is already certain that ITM 2020 exhibition will break new records as in the ITM 2018, because of increase in terms of both the number of visitors and participating companies.

Citizens of countries such as Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Afghanistan, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Indonesia, and Malaysia have difficulties to participate in similar exhibitions organised in Europe due to the hardships encountered when obtaining a Schengen visa. But, the fact that textile manufacturers, who are citizens of these countries, do not experience such problems while traveling to Turkey, plays a crucial role in increasing the number of participating companies and visitors in the ITM exhibitions. The consulates and commercial attaches received an abundant number of applications from visitors from all over the world; this reveals that the ITM 2020 exhibition will also host many visitors.

The ITM exhibition, which serves as a bridge between the east and the west, is making itself ready to feel the pulse of the sector, as it did in the previous years. This big appointment in Istanbul, which is located in the centre of countries that are intensively in the textile business, facilitates sector representatives to introduce their state-of-the-art technologies for the first time at the ITM exhibition. The ITM exhibitions, which features not only Turkish companies but also textile manufacturers from all over the world textile machinery market, provides a great contribution to the world economy.

Hightex 2020 International Technical Textiles & Nonwoven fair, which will be held concurrently with the ITM 2020 exhibition for the eighth time, also draws great attention from its participating countries. Moreover, the fact that it is held together simultaneously with the ITM 2020 exhibition doubles the excitement for the participants and the visitors. Hightex 2020 exhibition, which already filled in almost all of its halls, will bring together nonwoven industry leaders and technical textile technologies under one roof.
