ITMA is the world’s largest international textile machinery exhibition, an event which is owned by CEMATEX. ITMA is recognised as the ‘Olympics’ of the textile machinery industry – a showcase of the latest technology and a vital meeting place for buyers and sellers from all over the world.

ITMA has been the world’s most established textile and garment machinery exhibition since 1951. Over the years, it has been a catalyst for change and competitiveness for the industry. The drive towards sustainability in the entire textile and garment value chain is increasingly integrated with enlightened business practices, and innovative technology holds the key to environmental sustainability.

TMAS, is though the membership in CEMATEX, co- owner of ITMA.

The first ITMA exhibition (Internationale Textilmaschinen Ausstellung) was launched by CEMATEX in 1951 and has taken place with great success every four years since then –

In 1999 CEMATEX made the decision to launch an event which catered to the growing needs of Asian textile manufacturers which represent a significant percentage of its association members’ buyers. In 2001, ITMA Asia was born in Singapore and since then ITMA Asia has been held every two years in collaboration with three Chinese partners, CTMA, CCPITTEX and CIEC.
