  • ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 CONCLUDED SUCCESSFULLY WITH STRONG LOCAL ATTENDANCE AND EXHIBITOR ENDORSEMENTS

    29 June 2021 – ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 ended on a successful note, attracting a strong local turnout. After a delay of 8 months, the seventh combined exhibition welcomed visitorship of about 65,000 over 5 days.

    Riding on positive business sentiments, following the post-epidemic economic recovery in China, exhibitors were thrilled to be able to have face-to-face contact with local buyers from the world's largest textile manufacturing hub. In addition, they were excited to receive overseas visitors who were able to travel to Shanghai.

    Yang Zengxing, General Manager of Karl Mayer (China) enthused, “Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there were fewer overseas visitors, however, we were very satisfied with our participation in ITMA ASIA + CITME. The visitors who came to our stand were mainly decision-makers, and they were extremely interested in our exhibits and held focused discussions with us. As such, we are expecting numerous projects in the near future.'

    Alessio Zunta, Business Manager, MS Printing Solutions, agreed: “We are very glad to have participated in this ITMA ASIA + CITME edition. Finally, we were able to meet our old and new customers in-person again, as well as to launch our latest printing machine which received very positive feedback at the exhibition. I am happy to see that the local market in China has almost fully recovered and we look forward to next year's combined show.”

    The combined exhibition brought together 1,237 exhibitors from 20 countries and regions. In an exhibitor survey conducted onsite with over 1,000 exhibitors, over 60 per cent of the respondents revealed that they were happy with the quality of visitors; 30 per cent reported that they concluded business deals, of which over 60 per cent estimated sales ranging from RMB300,000 to over RMB3 million within the next six months.

    Attributing to the success of their participation to the vibrant demand for more automated and productivity enhancement solutions in China, Satoru Takakuwa, Manager, Sales and Marketing Department, Textile Machinery, TSUDAKOMA Corp. commented: 'Despite the pandemic, we had more customers visiting our stand than expected. In China, the demand for more efficient production and labour-saving technologies are growing because costs are increasing every year. We're glad to be able to respond to the demand.”

    Another satisfied exhibitor is Lorenzo Maffioli, Managing Director, Itema Weaving Machinery China. He explained: “Being located in a pivotal market such as China, ITMA Asia + CITME has always been an important platform for our company. The 2020 edition was a special one as it represented the first international exhibition since the pandemic started.”

    He added: “Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, we are very satisfied by the outcome of the exhibition as we welcomed a good number of qualified visitors at our booth. We were also very impressed by the efforts of the organisers to guarantee a safe environment for both exhibitors and guests and to manage the event in a very efficient way.”

    The show owners, CEMATEX, together with its Chinese partners – the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China International Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC) were also very pleased with the outcome of the combined exhibition, praising participants for their cooperation and support that helped ensure a smooth, successful face-to-face exhibition.

    Wang Shutian, honorary president of China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA), said: “The transformation and upgrading of China's industry has entered a stage of substantial development, and textile enterprises are investing in high-end manufacturing technologies and sustainable solutions. From the results of ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020, we can see that the combined exhibition remains the most effective business platform in China for the industry.”

    Ernesto Maurer, president of CEMATEX, added: “We owe our success to the support of our exhibitors, visitors and partners. Following this coronavirus setback, the textile industry is excited to move forward. Due to a remarkable recovery in local demand, there is a need to expand production capacity quickly. Besides, textile manufacturers have resumed plans to invest in new machinery to stay competitive. We hope to welcome more Asian buyers to the next show as many were not able to make it to this edition due to travel restrictions."

  • SEVENTH ITMA ASIA + CITME COMBINED SHOW SUCCESSFULLY OPENS IN SHANGHAI

    Largest textile machinery exhibition to be held since the start of the pandemic 

    12 June 2021 – The seventh ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 exhibition opens today in Shanghai with the largest showcase of the latest textile machinery since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic last year.

    Following an eight-month postponement, the combined exhibition grossing 160,000-square-metre brings together 1,237 textile machinery manufacturers from 20 countries and regions, and their buyers for face-to-face interaction.

    Against the odds, the combined show only contracted by 10% in gross exhibition space. The better-than-expected performance of ITMA Asia + CITME 2020 attests to China being an attractive textile machinery market. As 2021 marks the first year of China's 14th Five-Year Plan, it has ushered in fresh development opportunities for the local textile industry, according to the show owners.

    The combined show is owned by CEMATEX (European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers), the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC).

    Mr. Ernesto Maurer, president of CEMATEX, explained, “We are extremely pleased to be able to stage Asia's largest textile machinery exhibition during this challenging period, thanks to the strong performance of the China's textile industry, and the support of our exhibitors and partners. This edition of ITMA Asia + CITME has further sealed the combined exhibition's reputation as the leading-edge business platform in Asia for textile machinery.”

    Mr. Wang Shutian, honorary president of China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA), added: “Each edition of ITMA ASIA + CITME sees strong textile industry turnout. As an industry platform, it has been instrumental in facilitating the industrial upgrading of the textile industry in China and Asia. It is especially crucial now as the physical show allows companies to reconnect face-to-face again.  Such meetings held in person are critical for building business relationships in the longer term and we are pleased to enable our participants the opportunity to do so in this exhibition."

    Key highlights

    The largest contingent of exhibitors at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 comes from China, which has over 1,000 participants occupying over 56,000 square metres of net exhibit space. Some major exhibitors include CHTC, Fong's, Ningbo Cixing, Wuxi Hongyuan, Hangzhou Honghua, Jiangsu Yingyou Textile Machinery and Changshu Textile Machinery. 

    A total of 170 exhibitors from CEMATEX territories are taking part in the exhibition. They occupy over 9,200 square metres, amounting to 13 per cent of the net space. Two of the largest national groups are Germany and Italy. Fifty-seven German exhibitors occupy over 3,700 square metres while 63 Italian exhibitors take up over 2,500 square metres.

    The next largest group of exhibitors come from Japan, taking up more than 2,200 square metres of net space. The Japanese participation is coordinated by the Japan Textile Machinery Association - a strategic partner of the combined show.

    Although international participation has been greatly reduced due to travel restrictions, ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 still features leading brand names from Europe and Japan. They include Automatex Solution, Fil Control, Groz-Beckert, Itema, Jeanologia, Karl Mayer, MS Printing Solutions, Meech International, Muratec, Oerlikon Barmag, Picanol, Reggiani Macchine, Rieter, Santoni, Saurer, Savio, Shima Seiki, Staubli, Toyota, Tsudakoma, Vandewiele and Vanwyk.

The exhibition also has the support of more than 100 media partners from around the world.

    Onsite, the organisers are implementing various measures to protect participants' health and safety. These measures include mandatory temperature checking and strict badge verification with facial recognition at hall entry gantries. Visitors are also advised to observe social distancing.

    The combined exhibition ends on 16 June 2021. Opening hours are from 0900 to 1700 hours from 12 to 15 June, and 0900 to 1600 on 16 June. Visitors can purchase their badges onsite at the registration areas. Onsite rates are 50 yuan for a one-day badge and 100 yuan for a five-day badge.
