Testimonials

The garment industry is very competitive and production cycles are now even shorter. Therefore, we need to think out of the box and leverage on new technologies to help us to be more productive. Many innovative solutions are being introduced, from processes to materials. Hence, an exhibition such as ITMA 2019, where are can explore all the solutions, from textile to garment making, and even materials, in one location is ideal for our members. We will be organising a delegation of top garment manufacturers to study the latest trends and source new technologies that we can implement in our factories.

Vu Duc Giang, Chairman of Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS)

ITMA is the exhibition not to be missed by textile and apparel industry members. Every edition features a wide range of technologies, machinery, equipment and solutions that help key manufacturers meet many of today's challenges. In addition, the innovative and trendsetting showcase helps the industry to reinvent for a better future.

Dato' Tang Chong Chin, President, Malaysian Knitting Manufacturers Association (MKMA)

We are glad that there is a resurgence of textile and garment making in Europe as this benefits the Portuguese textile and apparel industry. Our manufacturers can be more competitive by improving competencies through branding, innovation and R&D. By incorporating technological and creative innovation to differentiate their products, they can expand their markets. As such, it is critical for us to continually evaluate and invest in new technologies. ITMA 2019, which will be held in neighbouring Spain will be an excellent platform for our manufacturers to explore integrated solutions, ranging from textile and garment technologies to fibres, yarns and fabrics.

Paulo Vaz, General Director, Textile and Apparel Association of Portugal (ATP)

The Sustainable Apparel Coalition will organize its 2019 full member meeting in Barcelona around ITMA to offer our members the opportunity to easily attend both events. ITMA presents innovative solutions that can be applied to any part of the value chain in a way that aligns with the mission of the SAC and producing apparel responsibly. Sustainable solutions indicate the strength of a business, how it treats its employees, how well it understands limited resources, and how much it respects its customer. ITMA educates attendees on how to put responsible and cutting-edge practices into place successfully.

Jason Kibbey, Chief Executive Officer, Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC)

ITMA is the most important textile machinery exhibition in the world as it features the latest technology of the leading textile machinery producers from around the world. As an international organisation for the global textile industry it is of paramount importance for ITMF members to participate in such an exhibition. Highlighting the leasing and financing sub-sector at ITMA 2019 is good news for buyers as they will be able to obtain on-the-spot advice when they decide to invest in the latest technology.

Christian P. Schindler, Director General, International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF)

ITMA is a very established textile machinery exhibition but over the years, the exhibition show profile has evolved in keeping with industry trends and challenges. It now features the entire textile and garment making production chain, including raw materials. Hence, our IAf members which represent the world's leading brands and apparel makers find it an excellent sourcing platform. As we look for innovative solutions to offer consumers exciting products made in a sustainable way, we are glad to be able to explore new materials and technologies in one location at ITMA 2019.
