ITMA Europe will be held November 12 to 19, 2015, Milan, Italy.
This is a textile and garment machinery exhibition. The last ITMA in Italy took place in 1995. For the first time in its history, ITMA will take place in November. ITMA in Europe plays a very important role in the global textile machinery industry.
Several CEMATEX countries have increased their space booked for the 2015 show compared with the 2011 event including Italy, the Netherlands, France and Germany. CEMATEX is the European association of textile machinery manufacturers.
The top five countries in terms of number of applicants are Italy, Germany, India, China and Turkey. Turkey is not only a textile manufacturing country but a machinery producer.
ITMA 2015 will see more participation from the industry as the world moves towards sustainability, spawning cutting-edge research and development, technological innovations and a host of enhanced and new machinery, and other product offerings.
The top five sectors participating at ITMA are finishing, spinning, weaving, knitting and printing. However, since ITMA 1999, emphasis has shifted to nonwovens, fibers and yarns, and garment making. Technical textile solutions, which have formed an integral part of the offerings by technology providers at ITMA, will be further highlighted with displays of new applications.
