We registered a 20 per cent jump in visitor numbers compared with ITMA 2011. More importantly, from participants' feedback, we can confidently say that this is one of the best ITMA exhibitions! Our message on sustainability has resonated greatly with buyers.
While the textile industry is facing many challenges, we are surprised by the strong response from buyers. ITMA 2015 exceeded our expectations. There was real interest in innovative technologies offered by us, and we held many meaningful dialogues with existing customers and new contacts.
ITMA continues to be the world's showcase for textile printing, and provides the ideal platform for presenting our latest technologies. The show organisers have kept ITMA fresh with new programmes so that visitors can see the latest in textile printing equipment while also learning about the urgency of issues like sustainability. The volume and quality of those coming to ITMA makes it a dynamic and exciting marketplace.
In the future, we have to think of sustainability in a large way - of the production chain, from cotton to spinning, weaving and garment treatment. In this way, we can truly have sustainable production.
