ITMA ASIA + CITME 2022 will be held from November 19-23, 2023 in Shanghai
ITMA ASIA + CITME is the leading textile machinery exhibition that combines the strengths of the world-renowned ITMA brand and CITME – China’s most important textile event.
Jointly owned by CEMATEX and China Textile Machinery Association, and held in partnership with the Japan Textile Machinery Association, the biennial ITMA ASIA + CITME exhibition also receives strong endorsement from the Korea Textile Machinery Association, Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry, and other major international and regional industry associations.
With a stellar track record of 7 successful editions, ITMA ASIA + CITME 2022 will continue to serve as the leading-edge business platform in Asia for textile machinery manufacturers to extend their reach into the thriving market and to build quality connections with buyers exploring advanced manufacturing technologies.
The upcoming ITMA ASIA + CITME exhibition will be held in Shanghai at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre from 19 to 23 November 2023. ITMA ASIA + CITME, Asia’s business platform for textile machinery, continues to draw interest for its exhibition, with more than 1,400 exhibitors from 24 countries and regions applying to take part in the combined exhibition. Six exhibition halls of the National Convention and Exhibition Center grossing over 160,000 square meters have been booked, according to the show owners – CEMATEX and its Chinese partners, the Sub-Council of the Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC).
Billed as the leading textile technology exhibition driving regional growth, ITMA ASIA + CITME moved the exhibition to Shanghai to enable our members to take advantage of the buoyant textile sector in China after the country joined the World Trade Organisation in 2001. Exhibitors are also buoyant about prospects as China’s economy is projected to be performing better than expected. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently revised its forecast for China’s GDP growth upwards to 5.2% in 2023 from its previous projection of 4.4% last October.
“Compared with the previous combined exhibition, the number of exhibitors in this edition has increased by 15 percent, with new exhibitors accounting for 30 percent of the total number of exhibitors, we welcome the presence of these new enterprises as they will add to a more diverse showcase of the technological innovation and provide new vitality and impetus for the development of the textile industry.”
Gu Ping, President of China Textile Machinery Association
“We have successfully held seven editions of ITMA ASIA + CITME in Shanghai. As part of our strategy to support the aspirations of local manufacturers in South Asia, South East, and the Middle East to modernize their operations, we are augmenting the series with a second location in Asia to better reach out to the textile hubs in these regions.”
Mr Ernesto Maurer, President of CEMATEX
