Combined ITM Texpo Eurasia 2013 is the star parade for international textile machinery



TextileFuture has reported at various occasions that Turkey has become a major compensation factor for the decrease in textile machinery demand elsewhere in the world. Turkey has an important domestic textile market and is a major exporter of textiles. The Turkish government has lately accorded new incentives to stimulate the investment spirit of Turkish textile industrialists. This fact is certainly a stimulus for reputed textile machinery producers to participate with their solutions at ITM Texpo Eurasia and parallel Hightex International Technical Textiles and Nonwovens and Istanbul Fibre Fair from May 29 – June 1, 2013 in Istanbul (TR).

We are providing you with a table in pocket size of selected textile machinery firms, and what they will be showcasing at these exhibitions, which facilitates your visit and is providing – in short – their offerings.
