ITMA 2019, a leading textile and garment technology exhibition to be held from 20 to 26 June 2019 in Barcelona, is all set to display an exciting range of the latest trends, technologies, and materials. The exhibition space has been fully booked by the application deadline and the organising team has been busy allocating space to successful applicants.

One of the top sectors in terms of space applied is spinning. An established name in the sector at every ITMA edition is Murata Machinery. It will be highlighting its latest range of spinning machinery.

An exciting sector at ITMA 2019 is printing. Previously part of the finishing sector, printing as a stand-alone chapter has garnered very strong interest as the industry embraces digital transformation. The number of exhibitors in the printing and inks sector has increased by around 30 per cent from ITMA 2015, according to a press release.

Besides printing, another sector that is undergoing vast transformation and rapid development is the garment making sector. Previously labour-intensive, the garment industry now sees a gamut of solutions utilising artificial intelligence, robotics, vision systems, and other advanced automation.

As the textile and garment industry trends towards an integrated manufacturing value chain, many new-to-ITMA solutions providers have been attracted to take part in ITMA 2019; some of them have chosen to co-locate their booths with their industry partners to offer integrated solutions to buyers. Among the new applicants are Borsoi, Bullmer, Card Clothing & Services, Han’s Yueming Laser, Juki, Serkon Tekstil, and SoftWear Automation. Successful ITMA 2019 applicants will be receiving their certificate of admission and details of their booth space this month.

Fritz Mayer, president of the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (CEMATEX) said, “The response for ITMA 2019 is so overwhelming that we have not been able to meet the demand for space despite adding two more exhibition halls. ITMA is a show for the industry, by the industry. Hence, we are of the opinion that ITMA should feature a wide spectrum of cutting-edge solutions from as many solutions providers as possible, whether established or new-to-market.”

Charles Beauduin, chairman of ITMA services, which organises ITMA 2019 said, “As an international platform, our priority is to accommodate as many eligible applicants as possible to participate in the exhibition. It is heartening that the CEMATEX association is supportive of this approach. Currently, we were only able to accommodate some 1,660 exhibitors from 47 countries on the show floor. We have to put many applicants on the waiting list.” (GK)
