Almost 90 Exhibitors From Germany Participating At ITM 2024

Almost 90 exhibitors from Germany will exhibit at ITM 2024 exhibition, most of whom are members of the VDMA.

‘In addition to VDMA member companies exhibiting in their own booth, numerous VDMA members will be represented in Istanbul via their agents,” VDMA said in a press release.

They cover nearly all different machinery chapters with a focus on spinning, nonwovens, weaving, knitting, warp knitting and finishing.

In Istanbul, VDMA members will show their latest innovations and significant trends include digitalisation and automation.

These themes have been present for some time but will continue to play a central role in meeting the challenges for many years to come. Another trend that has also been around for a while is sustainability.

“Efficiency in energy, raw materials or water as well as recycling are not feel-good issues but have a real economic and social background,” the German textile machinery association added.

For the textile machinery manufacturers participating at ITM, Turkey is a major trading partner.

In 2023, textile machinery and accessories worth approximately €350 million were exported from Germany to Turkey, which made Turkey the second biggest sales market for German companies.

After three years in which China was the most important supplier of textile machinery to Turkey, Germany has now regained this top position.

Turkey is at the doorstep of Europe, which gives Turkish textile producers a powerful geographic advantage over Asian sourcing destinations.

The textile companies in the region have deep experience and know-how in producing the highest quality textile and apparel for leading markets of Europe.

“It should not be forgotten that ITM attracts visitors from Turkey as well as Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa,” Dr. Harald Weber, Managing Director of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association said.

“Turkey’s proximity to the EU and its fully integrated textile value chain also make it interesting for EU’s strategy in sustainable and circular textiles and importance of recycling in the future,” he added.
