Exhibition space application for ITMA 2019, the world's largest textile and garment technology exhibition, has begun. The exhibition, held every 4 years, showcases the entire textile and garment making manufacturing chain, as well as raw materials. The index of products at ITMA is constantly reviewed to ensure its relevance and improve visitor experience.

ITMA, the largest textile and garment technology exhibition, constantly reviews its index of products to ensure its relevance and improve visitor experience. It showcases the entire textile and garment making manufacturing chain as well as raw materials. Exhibition space application has now begun for ITMA 2019 to be held from June 20-26, 2019 in Spain.

"A core value of ITMA is to be relevant to the textile and garment making industry and end-users. As such, we are always exploring new ways to reinvent and to make our platform vital to all stakeholders by offering an integrated sourcing experience. More importantly, during every ITMA, manufacturers are able to have meaningful discussions with their partners and customers on innovative ideas that offer users a competitive advantage," said Fritz P Mayer, president of CEMATEX - the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers.

At ITMA 2011 a new fibre and yarn sector was introduced, and this was favourably received by visitors who could source their raw materials at the show. Due to the favourable response received from fibre and yarn exhibitors and visitors at the last two ITMA shows, ITMA 2019 will include woven, nonwoven and knitted fabrics in the fibre and yarn exhibit sector.

In addition, digital and screen printing inks have been classified in the printing chapter. This will allow ink producers to be in the same hall as printing machinery manufacturers so that visitors can easily source technology and consumables. A new service introduced for the benefit of machinery buyers is leasing and financing services, according to ITMA Services, the organiser of ITMA 2019.

"We have taken a comprehensive approach in ensuring the index of products will be extremely useful to manufacturers as the global business environment remains challenging. The launch of ITMA 2019 space application has been eagerly awaited by textile machinery manufacturers and raw material producers. We have received a lot of enquiries from past exhibitors and interested manufacturers who have not taken part in ITMA before. This augurs well for ITMA 2019 and the industry can look forward to another strong industry platform," said AE Roberts, managing director of ITMA Services.

"ITMA is a very established textile machinery exhibition but over the years, the exhibition show profile has evolved in keeping with industry trends and challenges. It now features the entire textile and garment making production chain, including raw materials," said Han Bekke, president of International Apparel Federation.

"We are excited to be hosting ITMA again. Participants had a good experience in 2011 and we hope to replicate it again in 2019. Spain is home to some of the most famous luxury and fast fashion brands and an interesting destination for all in the textile, garment and fashion industry," said Jordi Galtés, president of AMEC AMTEX, the Spanish Association of Textile Machinery Manufacturers.

The last ITMA exhibition, held in Milan in 2015, featured exhibits from the entire textile and garment making value chain spread over 108,268 square metres of net exhibition space. It drew the participation of 1,691 exhibitors from 46 countries and visitorship of almost 123,000 from 147 countries. (KD)
