ITMA ASIA + CITME 2010, Asia’s leading textile machinery show, has been given a boost by the announcement from the show organisers that all exhibition space has now been sold for the forthcoming show.

 According to organisers, over 1100 textile and garment machinery manufacturers have successfully applied to exhibit at the second combined show, taking up 100,000 square metres of Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

Chinese exhibitors make up the biggest country group at the show, which will be held from 22 to 26 June 2010 and they have taken around 50% of the total exhibition space. Exhibitors from Europe form the next biggest contingent will take up 35% of space. 

According to show owners CEMATEX, CCPIT Sub-Council of Textile Industry (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation, the show is so popular that there is still a waiting list of over 50 manufacturers,

Ms Maria Avery, Secretary-General of CEMATEX, said: “Global economic recovery is underway and growth is expected to return to positive territory in 2010. Generally, businesses are more upbeat in their outlook; hence there is strong demand for the show. As the show date approaches, we are now actively promoting the exhibition in China and the rest of Asia.” 

 The visitor promotion campaign which kicked off at the beginning of the year is now gathering momentum and on the domestic front, the organisers are now focused on reaching out to Chinese buyers from key textile hubs.

Regionally, they have formed strategic tie-ups with associations in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia and Turkey. Promotion trips to Bangladesh, Egypt, Russia, Central Asia and India have already been made or are being planned.

 A series of road shows, specifically targeting Indian trade visitors, who formed the biggest group of overseas visitors to the 2008 show, was held earlier this year. Indian cities covered in the road shows were Ahmedabad, Surat, Mumbai, Coimbatore, Tirupur, Erode, Madurai, Panipat, Ludhiana, Amritsar and Bhilwara.

 ITMA ASIA + CITME 2010 is expected to attract around 100,000 visitors, a 10% increase from the last combined show, which drew 90,000 from 96 countries and regions.

 Hassle-free visitor registration services

 To ensure that ITMA ASIA + CITME is an industry-leading market place and to attract quality attendance, visitors will need to purchase badges costing RMB 100 for a five-day pass and RMB 50 for a one-day pass.  

Visitors who register online at www.itmaasia.com  and www.citme.com.cn  before 10 June 2010 will enjoy a discount of 40 percent. This service is also extended to exhibitors who wish to purchase badges for their guests.

 For added convenience, visitors can print their badges after successful registration. This time-saving feature further helps visitors to avoid possible long onsite queues during the show.  

 ITMA ASIA + CITME 2010 is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co Ltd and co-organised by MP International Pte Ltd. The Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA) is a special partner of the combined show.
