The world’s leading textile and garment technology exhibition, ITMA 2019 is gearing up for another vibrant showcase of the latest trends, technologies and materials. Exhibition space was fully booked by the application deadline and the organising team has been busy allocating space to successful applicants.
Commented Mr Fritz P. Mayer, president of CEMATEX, “The response for ITMA 2019 is so overwhelming that we have not been able to meet the demand for space despite adding two more exhibition halls. ITMA is a show for the industry, by the industry. Hence, we are of the opinion that ITMA should feature a wide spectrum of cutting-edge solutions from as many solutions providers as possible, whether established or new-to-market.”
After Spinning, another exciting sector at ITMA 2019 is printing. Previously part of the finishing sector, printing as a standalone chapter has garnered very strong interest as the industry embraces digital transformation. The number of exhibitors in the printing and inks sector has jumped some 30 per cent from ITMA 2015.
Mr Dick Joustra, CEO, SPGPrints Group said: “Digitalisation is having a tremendous impact in the textile and garment industry, and the true extent of its influence can be seen not only in textile printing companies, but throughout the value chain. Brand owners and designers are able to use opportunities, like ITMA 2019, to see how the versatility of digital printing can transform their operations. As a total supplier in conventional and digital textile printing, we see ITMA as an important marketplace to show our latest technologies.”
