First ITMA ASIA + CITME draw enthusiastic response

Apr '07
The first combined ITMA ASIA + CITME exhibition has drawn enthusiastic response from the world's leading textile machinery makers. Applications for booth space have been streaming in as the deadline draws near.

Miss Maria Avery, Secretary-General of CEMATEX, The European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, reported, “Our national associations have been receiving exceptionally good response from their members, who are all very supportive of our launch event in China. It is a very important market for them and they are enthusiastic about the country's potential."

"Hence, they are concentrating all their marketing efforts into this one show and we are receiving applications for very large booths. This augurs well for the event, and we believe we shall sell out the remaining space very quickly.”

Chinese textile machinery manufacturers are also making their presence felt in a big way at the first combined show. Mr Wang Shutian, Vice President and General Secretary of the China Textile Machinery Association commented, “We are very excited to kick-off the combined show in Shanghai, and all the major Chinese manufacturers will be participating in this groundbreaking exhibition. It will be the most successful international textile machinery exhibition China has ever hosted.”

Most of the leading industry names from the world's major textile machinery manufacturing hubs have already signed up for the exhibition, boosted by the positive demand for modern equipment from Chinese and other Asian textile makers.

Till now, China's textile industry has surpassed one-third of the entire world textile production capacity. According to the China Textile Machinery Association, the value of imported textile machinery surpassed US$4 billion in 2006 – an increase of 19 percent over the previous year's total.
