Expanding Areas of Visitor Interests


Strong interest in fibres, yarns, fabric making,
technical textiles and nonwovens

Areas of interest

Lenzing AG has been part of ITMA since the launch of the fibre and yarn chapter in ITMA 2011. ITMA has become an important exhibition for us. Participating in ITMA gives us the chance, as a fibre producer, to meet a broader audience. We were able to get in touch with a wide variety of visitors sourcing different solutions, from apparel to technical textiles. We will be back at ITMA 2023!"

We have achieved our sales and business objectives at ITMA 2019. The quality and frequency of the visitors were excellent. Apart from receiving enquiries from our core knitting business, there was an increased interest and enquiry from the technical textiles manufacturers."

Kent Hsieh, Turkey General Manager, Pailung Machinery Mill

The results from our participation in ITMA 2019 exceeded our expectations. Our digital sewing machine solutions were well received as was our automatic machines and models for technical textiles. The quality of the visitors was high.”

Eoghan Murray, Marketing Manager, Juki Central Europe

Recycling, waste reduction and pollution prevention

Another area of interest that enjoyed a steady growth momentum was the recycling and waste management sector. With sustainability as an important driving force in technology innovation, many textile manufacturers are looking deeper into green solutions.

This is our first time exhibiting at the recycling chapter of ITMA 2019. We presented our water and waste water treatment plant solutions to the textile and garment making industry. The visitor frequency was good and we had high interest in our solutions as more manufacturers look for partners to meet their sustainability compliance requirement."
