Italy to host ITMA 2023
ITMA returns to Milan following
successful showing in 2015.
CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery
Manufacturershas announced that ITMA will return to Milan,
Italy, for its 19th edition. ITMA 2023 will be held at the Fiera
Milano Rho exhibition centre from 8 to 14 June 2023.
The decision to host ITMA 2023 in Milan was taken at the
CEMATEX General Assembly held recently. Mr Fritz P Mayer,
President of CEMATEX, explained: “We received very positive
feedback from ITMA 2015 exhibitors and visitors. Milan has
excellent infrastructure for holding large-scale exhibitions
like ITMA, which grosses over 200,000 square metres and attracts
a global audience. It offers an extensive range of hospitality
services and air connections to all parts of the world. Italy
also has a large textile machinery and textile making industry.”
Alessandro Zucchi, President of ACIMIT, the association of
Italian textile machinery manufacturers, said: “We are very
pleased that Milan has been selected to host ITMA 2023. We will
work hard with all parties, including government agencies and
local partners to ensure another successful show."
Fiera Milano, which also hosted ITMA 2015, beat two other
short-listed bidders out of an initial list of 9 venues. “It is
a great satisfaction for us to have brought the top
international exhibition of machinery and technology for
textiles and clothing back to Italy,” said Mr Fabrizio Curci,
Chief Executive Officer of Fiera Milano. “The trust the
organisers have placed in us is an acknowledgement of the
professional approach and quality services Fiera Milano is able
to guarantee for international events hosted here.”

exhibition – has been held every four years since 1951. The next
