The online visitor registration has begun for one of the much-awaited events of the year – ITMA Asia + CITME 2020.
To be held in National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai from 12 to 16 June 2021, the combined show is organised by Beijing Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co. Ltd. and co-organised by ITMA Services.
Japan Textile Machinery Association is the special partner of the combined show.
Notably, the early-bird rates, available till 6 June, are RMB 60 for a 5-day badge and RMB 30 for a 1-day badge. Standard onsite rates cost RMB 100 for a 5-day badge and RMB 50 for a 1-day badge.
Those registering online can also access exhibition e-catalogue.
The show owners and organisers are closely working with Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council and the Shanghai Convention and Exhibition Industries Association to ensure safety of all participants and visitors in these tough times.
More on the same, Ernesto Maurer, President, CEMATEX, one of the owners of ITMA Asia + CITME, said “Strict safety measures will be implemented onsite. Visitors should purchase their badge online to avoid onsite queues and allow better and smooth entry process.”
Talking about staging the combined exhibition, Wang Shutian, Honorary President, China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA), said “The pandemic has created pent-up demand for quality machinery for sectors such as nonwovens and technical textiles as there was a lack of sales and marketing opportunities last year.”
Therefore, he added, the decision was taken to stage a combined exhibition, which importantly elicited positive response from several exhibitors.
Amidst all the existing challenges, the 7th edition of the combined event expects participation from 1,500 exhibitors, including some big machinery makers from as many as 24 countries.
ITMA ASIA + CITME is owned by CEMATEX and the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex), CTMA and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC).
To be held over a vast area of 170,000 square metres, this combined event is one to watch out for in 2021.
