ITMA highlights innovation for its second Barcelona edition
ITMA 2019 online space application opens in May.
ITMA, the world’s largest textile and garment technology
showcase will continue its focus on innovation for its upcoming
edition in Barcelona in June 2019, with the main theme of the
show being ‘Innovating the World of Textiles’.
Mr Fritz P. Mayer, president of CEMATEX, the European
Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, which owns the
ITMA exhibition, explained: “The increasingly high level of
automation and digitisation in combination with real time data
tracking and interconnection has spawned the 4th industrial
revolution and the emergence of smart factories. ITMA is a
unique showcase of live machinery demonstrations and innovative
solutions that boost productivity and profitability.
“For this latest edition of ITMA, we have chosen to focus the
industry’s attention on innovation which creates a competitive
advantage for manufacturers. Sustainable innovation that drives
growth for the textile and garment industry will continue to be
emphasised at the exhibition.”
As many leading textile machinery and raw material
manufacturers, and service providers look forward to the
exhibition to launch or promote their latest innovations, the
