An online platform that allows ITMA 2023 participants to build connections, source technologies and solutions, share ideas and grow their business has been introduced by the show owner the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (CEMATEX), Zurich/Switzerland. Available to all ITMA 2023 participants before, during and after exhibition, ITMAconnect is the new one-stop sourcing platform and knowledge hub that complements the exhibition which takes place in Milan/Italy from June 8-14, 2023.
Exhibitors will be able to pinpoint business opportunities in advance by allowing them to have access to ITMA 2023 buyers early. They will be assigned ITMAconnect digital spaces for them to present their company information, upload brochures and press releases, and showcase their products. They can also start their engagements with the smart messaging and video meeting feature, and schedule in-person meetings using the business matching tool. Exhibitors will automatically become ITMAconnect subscribers, and access to the platform for them to prepare their digital showcases will be available from November 15, 2022.
Similarly, visitors will enjoy a 2-in-1 offer to gain access to ITMA 2023 as well as the online sourcing platform when they purchase their badges. Online access starts from March 8, 2023. After the close of the exhibition, ITMAconnect will be open to non-ITMA 2023 visitors from June 15, 2023.
The ITMAconnect platform will also allow participants to access content all year round, making it a knowledge hub for textile related content and events, including webinars, community forums and showcases by exhibitors.
