Some 1,300 exhibitors from 28 countries are gearing up to showcase their latest technology at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2012 as the countdown for the third combined show begins.
The five-day exhibition will open on 12 June at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC). It is expected to draw strong response from Asian buyers, especially Chinese visitors from major textile-making hubs in the country.
“In today's challenging business landscape, there is always demand for cost-effective solutions. Asian industry players, like their counterparts from other areas of the world, are looking at a greater return on their investment, and they will be able to find everything they need among the comprehensive range of products on show at our forthcoming event” said Miss Maria Avery, Secretary General of the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (CEMATEX).
ITMA ASIA + CITME 2012 boasts a huge showcase of exhibits displayed over 17 sectors, ranging from spinning, nonwovens, weaving and knitting, to finishing, testing, handling and packing. The three largest product groups are spinning, dyeing/printing/finishing and weaving.
Exhibits will be on show over 132,000 square metres of gross exhibition space. This represents an increase of 30 per cent over the size of the previous show in 2010.
CEMATEX is the owner of the combined show, together with 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).
The event is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co Ltd and co-organised by MP International Pte Ltd. The Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA) is a special partner association of the show.
