The next edition of ITMA will be held from June 20 to 26, 2019 in Spain. This is the world's largest textile and garment technology exhibition. Held every four years since 1951, it showcases the entire textile and garment making manufacturing chain as well as raw materials.
A core value of ITMA is to be relevant to the textile and garment making industry and end-users. As such, it is always exploring new ways to reinvent and to make its platform vital to all stakeholders by offering an integrated sourcing experience. During every ITMA, manufacturers are able to have meaningful discussions with their partners and customers on innovative ideas that offer users a competitive advantage.
Due to the favorable response received from fiber and yarn exhibitors and visitors at the last two ITMA shows, ITMA 2019 will include woven, nonwoven and knitted fabrics in the fiber and yarn exhibit sector. In addition, digital and screen printing inks have been classified in the printing chapter. This will allow ink producers to be in the same hall as printing machinery manufacturers so that visitors can easily source technology and consumables. A new service introduced for the benefit of machinery buyers is leasing and financing services.
Over the years, the exhibition show profile has evolved in keeping with industry trends and challenges. It now features the entire textile and garment making production chain, including raw materials.
