TMA Asia + CITME returns to Shanghai in October 2016, at a new location – the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC).
Despite a controversy within the industry about the show’s decision to run on a biennial schedule rather than the expected four-year cycle, the textile technology show is shaping up to be a well-attended event.
At the close of space applications for exhibitors, more than 90 percent of the 180,000 square meters (m2) of exhibition space had been sold. In addition, organizers hope to attract more than 100,000 trade show visitors from around the globe.
The combined show is owned by the European Textile Machinery Manufacturers
Association (CEMATEX), and its China-based partners the Sub-Council of c, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex); China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA); and China Exhibition Centre Group Corp. (CIEC).
The event is organized by the Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co. and co-organized by MP Expositions Pte. Ltd. In addition, the Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA) is a special partner of the show.
