Organised from November 19-23, 2023, the eighth edition of ITMA ASIA + CITME exhibition in Shanghai attracted 1,500 exhibitors from 23 countries and regions.
Spread over 160,000 sq. mt. at the sprawling National Exhibition and Convention Centre in Shanghai, the six halls at the venue had 18 product sectors of the textile manufacturing value chain being showcased.
Exhibitors from China dominated this year’s edition followed by exhibitors from Germany and Japan. Some of reputed companies participants included: CHTC Group, Groz-Beckert, Itema, Muratec, Oerlikon, Picanol, Rieter, Saurer, Savio, Shima Seiki, Stäubli, Texpro, Truetzschler, Uster and Vandewiele.
Around 23 per cent of the exhibition space was occupied by spinning and man-made fiber production machines, followed by dyeing and finishing machinery which occupies 21 per cent space, knitting occupying 16 per cent space and weaving occupying 14 per cent space.
The organising committee collaborated with over 100 supporting media partners for the event. It conducted numerous, overseas roadshows in Indonesia, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. This resulted in over 20,000 visitors from nearly 90 countries and regions pre-registering their visit.
Owned by CEMATEX and its Chinese partners, ITMA ASIA + CITME 2022 is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition and co-organised by ITMA Services. The Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA) was a special partner of the show.
