ITMA is the world's largest fair dedicated to textile and clothing technologies, where the industry meets every four years to discover the latest innovations and manufacturing solutions. This prestigious event has also become a great opportunity to establish influential business partnerships or to expand into international markets. The best confirmation of this is the fact that over 20,000 agreements were concluded during just a few days of ITMA within the framework of #ITMAconnect.
As representatives of the Polish textile market, we were not only able to appear on the international scene, but above all to present our services to a wider group of interested parties - and there were quite a few of them! This edition of ITMA saw as many as 111,000 visitors from 143 countries! And all this over 200,000 square meters of space at Fiera Milano Rho in Milan.
TEKATEX was one of the 1709 exhibitors who came to Italy from 47 countries around the world. In relation to statistics, it is worth adding that ITMA was also attended by 114 media outlets and 173 supporting institutions. Impressive! It is difficult to compare this event to any other event in the industry!
The theme of ITMA 2023 was 'Transforming the World of Textiles'. The title was in some way meant to reflect the aspirations of textile machinery manufacturers, as well as textile producers, and above all to reassure them that their collaboration can bring positive changes and herald a more sustainable future for both the industry and the entire planet.
The most important issues discussed on various event platforms during the exhibition were: advanced materials, automation and digital future, innovative technologies, and sustainable development.
Looking back, we rate ITMA 2023 as an extremely successful and developing event. We were able to see the latest machines for ourselves, which was a treat for lovers of new technologies, and we also talked about our achievements. We can't wait for ITMA 2027 in Hannover!
