Past ITMA results
Generally most of the exhibitors report good to excellent results: contracts were signed, new customers showed serious interest and new projects were initiated. These results are communicated not only by textile machinery umbrella associations but also by individual machinery manufacturers such as NSC (F), Oerlikon Textile and Rieter (both Swiss), Karl Mayer (D), Thies (D).
German VDMA Textile Machinery division has made a survey and 134 members responded. 56 % stated that ITMA is superior to other trade fairs also regarding the quality (decision makers) and origin of visitors (138 different countries) and 92% stated to sign up for next ITMA based upon their experience in Barcelona (E). 93 companies registered already for ITMA Asia 2012 (June 12 -16) showing a 20 % increase of participation and space reserved as against ITMA Asia 2010. Also ACIMIT the Italian umbrella organisation reports excellent results for their members.
