  • ITMA ASIA + CITME GEARS UP FOR STRONG SHOWCASE IN JUNE 2021 DESPITE CURRENT ECONOMIC CHALLENGES

    10 September 2020 – Despite a gloomy global economic outlook owing to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, textile machinery makers remain confident about the long-term prospects of the textile industry in Asia, especially China. Shrugging off the effects of the economic slowdown, they have given ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 a vote of confidence by snapping up space in the seventh combined show.

    Show owners CEMATEX and Chinese partners, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC) have received applications from over 1,600 leading textile machinery manufacturers at the close of application period.

    Although the deadline has passed, applications for space are still streaming in for the combined show, which will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC), Shanghai from 12 to 16 June 2021. 

    Successful applicants will be receiving their certificate of admission and details of their booth space in December this year. The applicants, coupled with the strong support from various partners and industry associations, have given the combined show the clearest indication yet of a successful showing.

    Mr Ernesto Maurer, President of CEMATEX, said: “We are very pleased to see so many companies booking with confidence as the industry moves forward to meet the growing demand of a post-pandemic economy. The Asian region continues to be a bright spot for businesses which are seeking new markets and growth opportunities in challenging times.”

    The International Monetary Fund updated in June that in 2021 global growth is projected at 5.4 per cent. It also highlighted that economic growth will be strongest in emerging markets and developing economies, particularly in Asia which is expected to grow at 7.4 per cent.

    Commented Mr Wang Shutian, Honorary President of China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA), “The positive economic growth is extremely good news for the industry. The pandemic has forced the industry to face unprecedented challenges. While a full recovery will take time, businesses around the world are already looking ahead to actively seek ways to prompt a market rebound.

    “ITMA ASIA + CITME is a recognised brand and we are delighted that the industry continues to support our showcase. This is really a positive sign that industry players are cautiously optimistic about the future.”

    Dilo Systems Gmbh, a leading company in the field of complete staple fibre nonwoven production lines, has been a regular ITMA ASIA + CITME participant. Identifying the potential in the combined show, Dr. Gunnar Hemmer, Sales and Marketing Director, said: “Next year’s combined show will be extremely important for all manufacturers as business has been badly affected by the pandemic. It will offer an excellent platform to help us reconnect with Asian buyers as the global economy is expected to improve. With established track record, ITMA ASIA + CITME is in a strong position to support the overall recovery of the textile industry.”

    Refreshed ITMA ASIA logo

    As part of its efforts to unify the branding of its ITMA exhibition portfolio, CEMATEX has recently refreshed the design of its ITMA ASIA logo. Moving forward, the new image will be featured in the combined exhibition logo.

    ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co Ltd and co-organised by ITMA Services. Japan Textile Machinery Association is a special partner of the show.

    The last ITMA ASIA + CITME combined show in 2018 welcomed the participation of 1,733 exhibitors from 28 countries and economies and registered a visitorship of over 100,000 from 116 countries and regions.

  • ITMA ASIA + CITME RESCHEDULED TO JUNE 2021

    22 April 2020 – In light of the current coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 has been rescheduled, despite receiving strong response from exhibitors. Originally slated to be held in October, the combined show will now take place from 12 to 16 June 2021 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC), Shanghai.

    According to show owners CEMATEX and Chinese partners, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC), the postponement is necessary due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Mr Fritz P. Mayer, President of CEMATEX, said: “We seek your understanding as this decision has been made with the safety and health concerns of our participants and partners in mind. The global economy has been severely affected by the pandemic. On a positive note, the International Monetary Fund has predicted that there would be global economic growth at 5.8 per cent next year. Hence, it is more prudent to look at a date around mid of next year.”

    Added Mr Wang Shutian, Honorary President of China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA), “The outbreak of the coronavirus has caused a severe impact on global economy, and also affected the manufacturing sector. Our exhibitors, especially those from other parts of the world, are deeply affected by the lockdowns. Therefore, we believe that the combined show with the new exhibition dates would be timely when the global economy is predicted to improve. We would like to thank the exhibitors who have applied for space for their strong vote of confidence in the combined show.”

    Keen interest at close of application period

    In spite of the pandemic, at the close of space application, almost all the space reserved at NECC has been filled. The show owners will create a wait list for the late applicants and if necessary, to secure additional exhibition space from the venue to accommodate more exhibitors.

    Buyers to ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 can expect to meet industry leaders who will showcase a wide array of latest technology solutions that will help textile makers to become more competitive.

    ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co Ltd and co-organised by ITMA Services. Japan Textile Machinery Association is a special partner of the show.

    The last ITMA ASIA + CITME combined show in 2018 welcomed the participation of 1,733 exhibitors from 28 countries and economies and registered visitorship of over 100,000 from 116 countries and regions.
