After more than twenty years, the 17th edition of Itma, the textile and garment machinery and technology trade fair which takes place every four years, is back in Milan to be hosted in the halls of Fiera Milano Rho from 12th to 19th of November.
Held every four years since 1951, from 12 to 19 November Itma 2015 will showcase in Milan on an exhibition area of 200,000 square metres, the most innovative product solutions proposed by over 1600 exhibitors coming from 46 countries. No need to say that Italy is the leading country in terms of exhibitors. The Italian textile machinery companies exhibiting at Itma are about 460, thus confirming the viability of the manufacturing sector and of a unique textile – clothing supply chain. There is also a full program of side events and conferences focused on production innovation and sustainability: the theme chosen for the 17th Itma is, in fact, “Master the art of sustainable innovation”.
Itma is organized by Cematex, Comité Européen des Constructeurs de Machines Textiles, which comprises the associations of textile machinery manufacturers from nine European countries.
