Groz-Beckert reports that it welcomed over 6500 international guests at its booth at ITMA 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, which ran from 20-26 June. This year, 1717 exhibitors from 45 countries presented their products to over 100,000 visitors from 137 countries at the world’s leading trade fair for textile machinery.

The Groz-Beckert booth also attracted an international audience - guests came from 94 different countries, including Italy (12 %), Germany (10 %), Turkey (9 %), India (8 %), Spain (7 %) and Portugal (4%).

Over the seven days of the trade fair, Groz-Beckert presented its product and service highlights in the fields of knitting, weaving, felting, tufting, carding and sewing. The company also presented its cross-divisional and cross-product range offered by the Groz-Beckert Academy and the Technology and Development Center (TEZ).

In addition to the individual exhibition areas, the company’ new trade fair concept also included an innovation hub, where the latest innovations from all divisions were presented together. “Visitors could encounter the entire range of products in an extremely small space – both in real life and virtually thanks to Augmented Reality. This virtual system does more than just present the same information in a new way. It ensures that visitors leave the Groz-Beckert booth having enjoyed the kind of unique experience that builds real positive associations,” the company said in a press statement.
