ITMA highlights innovation for its second Barcelona edition

ITMA, the world's largest textile and garment technology showcase, will continue its focus on innovation for its upcoming edition in Barcelona in June 2019, with the main theme of the show being Innovating the World of Textiles.

“The increasingly high level of automation and digitisation in combination with real time data tracking and interconnection has spawned the fourth industrial revolution and the emergence of smart factories. ITMA is a unique showcase of live machinery demonstrations and innovative solutions that boost productivity and profitability,” said Fritz P. Mayer, president of CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, which owns the ITMA exhibition.
