02 September 2021: ITMA ASIA + CITME 2022, Asia’s leading business platform for textile machinery, will return to Shanghai for its 8th combined exhibition. It will be held from 20 to 24 November 2022 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre. Online space application has commenced on www.itmaasia.com.
Owned by CEMATEX (European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers), the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC), the combined exhibition is set to continue to be the leading-edge exhibition for global textile machinery manufacturers to extend their reach into Asia’s vibrant textile manufacturing hub, particularly China.
Ernesto Maurer, President of CEMATEX, enthused, “Since its launch in 2008, ITMA ASIA + CITME has grown from strength to strength to be a part of the transformation journey of the textile manufacturing industry in China. We are gearing up preparations for the combined exhibition and are spurred to deliver yet another successful exhibition for the textile industry. China is one of the few countries that is still experiencing positive growth.”
China’s economy is projected to increase 5.7 percent next year, according to the International Monetary Fund. With China planning to move up the value chain, machinery manufacturers can look forward to plenty of business and networking opportunities at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2022.

In line with this plan, ITMA ASIA + CITME remains committed to be the most effective business platform for buyers to explore advanced manufacturing technologies.”
