ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 concluded successfully with strong local attendance and exhibitor endorsements

02 July 2021: ITMA ASIA + CITME 2020 ended on a successful note, attracting a strong local turnout. After a delay of 8 months, the seventh combined exhibition welcomed visitorship of about 65,000 over 5 days.

Riding on positive business sentiments, following the post-epidemic economic recovery in China, exhibitors were thrilled to be able to have face-to-face contact with local buyers from the world’s largest textile manufacturing hub. In addition, they were excited to receive overseas visitors who were able to travel to Shanghai.

Yang Zengxing, General Manager of Karl Mayer (China) enthused, “Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there were fewer overseas visitors, however, we were very satisfied with our participation in ITMA ASIA + CITME. The visitors who came to our stand were mainly decision-makers, and they were extremely interested in our exhibits and held focused discussions with us.”

Alessio Zunta, Business Manager, MS Printing Solutions, agreed “We are very glad to have participated in this ITMA ASIA + CITME edition. Finally, we were able to meet our old and new customers in-person again, as well as to launch our latest printing machine which received very positive feedback at the exhibition. I am happy to see that the local market in China has almost fully recovered.”

The combined exhibition brought together 1,237 exhibitors from 20 countries and regions. In an exhibitor survey conducted onsite with over 1,000 exhibitors, over 60% of the respondents revealed that they were happy with the quality of visitors; 30% reported that they concluded business deals, of which more than 60% estimated sales ranging from RMB300,000 to over RMB3 million within the next six months.

Attributing to the success of their participation to the vibrant demand for more automated and productivity enhancement solutions in China, Satoru Takakuwa, Manager, Sales and Marketing Department, Textile Machinery, TSUDAKOMA Corp. commented: “Despite the pandemic, we had more customers visiting our stand than expected. In China, the demand for more efficient production and labour-saving technologies are growing because costs are increasing every year.”

Ernesto Maurer, President of CEMATEX, added “We owe our success to the support of our exhibitors, visitors and partners. Following this coronavirus setback, the textile industry is excited to move forward. Due to a remarkable recovery in local demand, there is a need to expand production capacity quickly.”

The next ITMA ASIA + CITME exhibition will be held from 20 to 24 November 2022 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai. It is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co., Ltd. and co-organised by ITMA Services. /
