About 20 per cent of the visitors came from outside of China. Of the overseas participants, Indian visitors topped the list, reflecting the strong growth of its textile industry. Following closely were trade visitors from Japan, China Taiwan, Korea and Bangladesh, said a press release issued jointly by CEMATEX, and its Chinese partners – the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China International Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC).
“Response to the combined show has been very strong. There was a larger pool of qualified buyers and most of our exhibitors were able to achieve their business objectives. We are delighted with the positive outcome from our latest event,” said CEMATEX president Fritz P Mayer.
“The strong turnout of visitors to the combined show reinforces the reputation of ITMA Asia + CITME as the most effective business platform in China for the industry. We shall continue to do our best to present the best technologies from both east and west to Chinese and Asian buyers,” added Wang Shutian, president of CTMA.
The total exhibition area at ITMA Asia + CITME 2018 grossed 180,000 square metres and spanned seven halls. A total of 1,733 exhibitors from 28 countries and regions demonstrated their latest technological products that focus on automation and sustainable production.
Following the successful staging of the 2018 edition, the next ITMA Asia + CITME will be held in October 2020 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai. (RKS)
