Jul 09, 2015

A large number of Indian visitors from textile & garment manufacturing industries are registered to visit ITMA 2015 almost four months in advance, said Om Prakash, Director, In ORBIT Tours Pvt. Ltd.

ITMA 2015 has attracted various industry groups to initiate activities that address critical sectorial concerns, as well as challenges faced by the textile, garment and fashion industry. The exhibition, billed as the world’s largest textile and garment manufacturing technology showcase, will be complemented by a wide range of knowledge sharing events that will feature discussions on issues that impact the industry’s sustainability said Om Prakash, on the basis of interaction with Daphne Poon, one of the organisers.

Among the exciting events are the Textile Colourant and Chemical Leaders Forum and Nonwovens Forum at ITMA 2015.

Textile Colourant and Chemical Leaders Forum
Launched at ITMA 2011, the forum was a success, drawing lively participation from colour and chemical professionals, and fashion and sports brand owners from around the world. This year, the agenda will focus on sustainability in dyeing and finishing processes and participants will be updated on industry opportunities and best practices. Covering a comprehensive range of issues, such as current challenges, solutions and future trends, the one-day forum on November 14 is divided into three sessions: 
The issue: Topics related to chemical pollution and environmental issues and how these impact the market place.
The solution: How does the supply chain respond?
The future: What are the trends and/or game changers moving forward?

Nonwovens Forum
To be held on November 16, the Nonwovens Forum at ITMA is jointly organised by EDANA and MP Expositions. The forum will address pertinent issues, challenges and opportunities in the rapidly evolving world of nonwovens.

The theme of this forum is ‘Nonwovens: A World of Growth and Opportunities’. Presentations on the latest applications and finishings will benefit ITMA visitors who are involved in or have the intention to move into nonwovens manufacturing. Participants will find it very useful to be able to visit the ITMA exhibition and view many of the technologies on show at the exhibition.

In addition to the forums, ITMA participants can gain valuable insights on new technologies and research at the Research & Innovation Pavilion’s Speakers Platform. ITMA 2015 will also feature the World Textile Summit, a high-level knowledge sharing platform on 13 November. Co-located with ITMA 2015 is the Digital Textile Conference on November 15.

ITMA 2015 will be held at the Fiera Milano Rho from November 12-19, 2015. It showcases end-to-end solutions for the entire textile and garment making chain. The exhibition has a gross size of over 200,000 sq m. To-date, over 1,500 exhibitors from 47 economies have signed up to take part in the exhibition.
