BEIJING — December 1, 2011 — Despite the current global economic slowdown, leading textile
machinery manufacturers around the world are still attracted to prospects offered by the world’s
largest textile producer — China. This can be seen from the overwhelming response received by the
combined textile machinery show, ITMA ASIA + CITME 2012, which will be held at the Shanghai New
International Expo Centre from 12 to 16 June 2012.
At the close of space application, some 130,000 square metres gross of exhibition space in 11
halls has been booked by leading industry names from some 30 economies. Although the space
application deadline has passed, the show owners are still being besieged with late applications,
including several applications for very large booths.
The exhibition is expected to feature some 1,300 local and international textile machinery
makers who will showcase cutting-edge solutions, as well as sustainability and energy efficient
machinery and processes.
Chinese exhibitors make up the biggest country group, booking around 50 per cent of the total
exhibition space. Besides China, the top participating countries in terms of space applications are
Germany, Italy, Japan and Switzerland.
Sector-wise, spinning machinery forms the largest sector. This is followed by knitting,
dyeing and finishing, weaving and winding.
Miss Maria Avery, Secretary General of CEMATEX, The European Committee of Textile Machinery
Manufacturers, said: “The combined show is now well entrenched in the textile machinery exhibition
calendar. It draws leading textile machinery manufacturers and is a must-attend showcase for the
Asian market, offering plenty of business and networking opportunities.”
