According to the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (CEMATEX), owner of the ITMA exhibition, the floor space for ITMA 2019 is fully booked. More than 1,500 companies from 45 companies have applied to participate in the show, which will be held in Barcelona June 20-26, 2019. Organizers now are working to expand the net 110,000 square-meter exhibit space to accommodate additional exhibitors.
“We are grateful for the vote of confidence from the industry,” said Fritz P. Mayer, president, CEMATEX. “It shows ITMA is the launch pad of choice for the latest technologies from around the world. Interest in ITMA 2019 is extremely strong, and we have received more applications at an earlier date compared with previous editions. We continue to welcome new applicants, especially manufacturers who are launching new products, as they will help to make ITMA 2019 an even more vibrant sourcing platform for our visitors.”
