ITMA ASIA + CITME 2022 has been rescheduled to November 2023 due to the uncertain pandemic situation in China.

Show owners Cematex and its Chinese partners, the Sub-Council of the Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), the China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC) have advised that the new show dates will be announced shortly.

“Due to the present circumstances in China, we have decided to reschedule the combined show to next year when the pandemic situation is expected to stabilise,” said Ernesto Maurer, president of Cematex. “As the exhibition features the participation of overseas exhibitors and visitors, we believe it is in the interest of the industry that we postpone the exhibition to allow greater participation at the most important textile machinery exhibition in Asia.“

We are very grateful to our exhibitors, media and industry partners for their support,” added Gu Ping, president of the CTMA). “Although the preparatory work has been going smoothly and we are looking forward to the exhibition opening, we must also ensure the health and safety of all our participants.”

ITMA ASIA + CITME 2022 is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition and co-organised by ITMA Services. The Japan Textile Machinery Association is a special partner of the show.

Originally scheduled to take place from 20 to 24 November 2022, the 2023 exhibition will still be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai.
