'Master the Art of Innovation' is the slogan of ITMA 2011

CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, has announced that ITMA 2011, to be held in Barcelona (Spain) from 22 to 29 September 2011, will be the world's most comprehensive, one-stop platform for textile and garment makers.

Showcasing the entire value chain from spinning to garment making, textile processing, technical textiles, logistics and distribution, the exhibition marks the 60th anniversary of the ITMA brand. The slogan of the 2011 show, 'Master the Art of Innovation', underscores CEMATEX's commitment to help the world's textile industry innovate and face up to the challenges of globalisation and sustainability, and the event offers manufacturers a vital solutions platform that will keep the industry focused and competitive.

In line with this value proposition, the ITMA 2011 Index of Products has been revised to include the very latest technologies. The garment making and textile processing sector has been expanded to sharpen its focus, and embroidery and braiding equipment now have their own separate sectors.

Highlights to draw global community
To encourage the global textile and garment making community to the event, CEMATEX, together with their organiser MP International, are planning a series of highlights, some of which will be launched as part of ITMA's 60th anniversary celebrations.

Among these are special ITMA awards which will pay tribute to top industry achievers, an enhanced Research & Education Pavilion, an ITMA Forum and targeted workshops for knowledge sharing and networking. Detailed information will be released in due course.

Said Ms Sylvia Phua, Chief Executive Officer of MP International, “Moving forward, ITMA as the driver for industry innovation will be transformed into the international business hub of the textile and garment industry."

“We are supporting the vision with a range of initiatives that will bring both buyers and sellers to this leading-edge platform. For a start, we are working very closely with our industry partners, especially trade associations worldwide.”

Besides the nine member associations of CEMATEX, based in Belgium(Symatex), France(UCMTF), Germany(VDMA), Italy(ACIMIT), Netherlands(GTM), Spain(AMEC AMTEX), Sweden(TMAS), Switzerland (Swissmem) and the United Kingdom(BTMA), MP International is collaborating with a number of textile machinery associations in key exhibitor markets to garner participation at ITMA 2011, including the American Textile Machinery Association (ATMA),China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA), Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA), Korea Textile Machinery Association(KOTMA) and Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI).

In addition, dedicated sales agents have been appointed in other key countries including India, South America and Turkey to assist companies with their participation.
