ITMA ASIA + CITME is door to China for textile machinery manufacturersThe third edition of the combined ITMA ASIA + CITME show will be held from 12 to 16 June 2012 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. The show aims to continue to be the leading marketing platform for textile machinery manufacturers tapping into the vibrant Chinese market.

“According to Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (GIA), the global market for textile machinery is projected to reach US$20.75 billion by 2015. The Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate as the single largest market, as local governments play a pivotal role in developing initiatives to boost textile machinery trade and bolster sales and investments”, the show’s organisers said in a statement today.

“The Asian region is forecast to emerge by 2015 as one of the fastest growing markets, spurred on by such initiatives. In China, for example, one of the priorities under the government’s 12th Five-Year Plan period (2011-2015) is to raise the craftsmanship, techniques and equipment to reach the international level for textile and other industry sectors,” organisers said.

“Besides the development and application of high-technology fibres, energy-saving, emission-reduction and environment-friendly technologies will also be the focus for China’s textile industry in the coming years.”

Mr Stephen Combes, President of CEMATEX which owns the ITMA and ITMA ASIA exhibitions, said, “The opportunities presented by China’s huge market remain an attraction for machinery manufacturers from around the world.

“Having held two successful presentations of the ITMA ASIA + CITME combined show in 2008 and 2010, we are confident that the upcoming exhibition will create enhanced and new marketing and networking opportunities for both Chinese and international textile and textile machinery manufacturers, especially those offering eco-friendly solutions.”

The successful track record of ITMA ASIA + CITME has helped garner huge support from major players around the world, pointed out Mr Wang Shutian, President of China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA).

 “The combined show has been highly recognised by leading textile and textile machinery industry players as it offers them a cost-effective showcase for their products and services in Asia. With the recovery of the world economy and the beginning of China’s 12th Five-Year Plan, we are confident that the combined show will score another success,” added Mr Shutian.

ITMA ASIA + CITME is owned by CEMATEX, CTMA and its two other Chinese partners - the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC).  JTMA (Japan Textile Machinery Association) is a special partner of the event.

“The combined show has not only promoted textile machinery technology and machinery effectively in Asia but, more importantly, it has strengthened cooperation between international textile and textile machinery industries,” organisers said.

“In addition, as a one-stop shop for the textile industry, the integration of the two shows has reduced participation costs for exhibitors seeking opportunities in China’s booming textile market.”

Despite the global financial crisis, the last ITMA ASIA + CITME combined show in 2010 attracted 1,171 exhibiting companies. The exhibition covered 103,500 square metres, and the five-day show received more than 82,000 visitors from 99 different countries and regions.

ITMA ASIA + CITME 2012 is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co Ltd and co-organised by MP International Pte Ltd.  Application for space is now open. The deadline for registration is 15 October 2011.
