Today, after a 3-year hiatus during the pandemic process the ITM 2022 International Textile Machinery Exhibition is opening its doors in Istanbul/Turkey once more. Until June 18, 2022, the event is bringing leading brands of textile technologies together in 12 halls with 1,280 exhibitors.
Many companies that focus on product development and new productions under pandemic conditions will have the opportunity to introduce their products to their customers for the first time in 3 years.
The textile industry, which is among the driving sectors in Turkey's exports, has made a good contribution to the Turkish economy, especially with the performance increase it has achieved during the pandemic period. Having attained an increase of up to 40% in its exports of textiles and raw materials, Turkey also managed to increase its exports of medical textiles, technical textiles and home textiles. The industry will further increase this success with the collaborations to be realized at the ITM 2022.
The exhibition is included in the ‘Domestic Organizations Covered by State Incentives’ list by the Ministry of Commerce, Ankara/Turkey. Bangladesh, India, Iran, Serbia, the Czech Republic, Pakistan, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Malaysia, Mexico, Egypt and Vietnam are among the countries that requested procurement delegations.
The 8th edition of the International Technical Textiles and Nonwovens Exhibition Hightex will be held simultaneously with the ITM 2022 Exhibition. At the Hightex 2022, companies operating in many sectors, from medical textiles to hygienic textiles, from agricultural textiles to geotextiles, will exhibit their latest products and production technologies. Nonwovens manufacturers will come together with the global players of the sector and have the opportunity to both invest in technology and introduce their latest products.
The next ITM and Hightex will be held on June 4-8, 2022.
