Paolo Banfi - get ready for ITMA 2007 in Munich

Apr '07
Paolo Banfi, President of ACIMIT
The next international exhibition of textile machinery, which will take place in Munich from 13 to 20 September 2007, will see the attendance of over 350 Italian companies, which fact is once more evidence of the leadership of the Italian production in this specific sector.

There are six months to the opening of ITMA 2007 world exhibition, which will take place in Munich from 13 to 20 September, and the Italian textile machinery industry is preparing in the best way its attendance to this event.

In fact ITMA is traditionally the showcase in which the manufacturers of this sector have the opportunity to present technological innovations. A good number of Italian companies will get to this appointment with a largely updated production supply, in order to meet the demands of the international visitors. The number of the Italian companies attending ITMA is considerable, also in this German edition of the exhibition. Exhibitors coming from Italy will be about 355 (as at March 2007), that is 13% more than in previous edition held in Birmingham in 2003.

Moreover the Munich edition is taking place at a time which is expected to confirm the recovery of the whole textile machinery sector worldwide, and in particular of the Italian sector. In fact the textile machinery industry closed the year 2006 with quite positive results: the production showed an increase of 5% and reached 2,680 million euro; the exports, which represent 78% of the total turnover, increased by 4% and reached in terms of value almost 2,100 million euro.

The year 2006 recorded also a recovery of the Italian domestic market, where the demand for textile machines exceeded 1,150 million Euros (+4% over 2005), which reflects a still vital market, ready to receive the new technological proposals.
