SINGAPORE – Online applications for exhibition space at the Singapore 2025 edition of ITMA Asia + CITME will open on 9 April.

The show, which is expected to gross 60,000 square metres and attract more than 600 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors, has reportedly attracted significant levels of interest since it was officially launched in Milan last June.

Drawn by the regional market opportunities, organisers have confirmed that many leading nonwoven technology brands are looking forward to applying for booth space for the event that will be held at the Singapore Expo from 28 to 31 October 2025.

Show owners - CEMATEX (the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers), China Textile Machinery Association (CTMA) and Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT (CCPIT-Tex) – also confirmed that there has been an increase in enquiries from machinery manufacturers from across the textile supply chain as the Singapore exhibition targets not only South and Southeast Asia, but also important markets in the Middle East. 

Ernesto Maurer, president of CEMATEX, explained: “These regions present vast opportunity for our members as technology buyers from these textile and garment hubs are sourcing cost-effective and sustainable solutions to modernise and upgrade their production.

 “The Singapore exhibition complements our ITMA exhibition in Europe and the ITMA Asia + CITME exhibition in China. The platform will help to broaden our exhibitors’ market focus and diversify their reach, enabling them to effectively engage with many of the buyers who were not able to attend these two exhibitions previously.

“For these buyers, we are convinced, Singapore is more accessible due to its closer proximity to their home countries, but even more so due to its visa-friendly policy.”

Gu Ping, president of CTMA, added: “The combined exhibition in Singapore has opened a new phase of development for CITME. We are excited to bring our members along as we ride the wave of regional opportunities through the Singapore edition.”

And Daisuke Murata, president of Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA), noted: “We congratulate the ITMA Asia + CITME owners for making the decision to have a second exhibition in Asia. The Singapore exhibition will be useful for our members to better penetrate other regional textile hubs in Asia, and as far as the Middle East.”

Prominent textile technology providers are also eagerly eyeing the start of space application for the combined exhibition.

Rebekka Dilo of Dilo Systems GmbH said that the group was looking forward to the Singapore edition of ITMA Asia + CITME 2025. “As an important gathering of the whole textile industry, it is a great opportunity for us to present our latest innovations,” she said.

To mark the opening of space application, a webinar titled Springboard to Regional Markets will be held on 9 April 2024 (Tuesday) at 3pm SGT. To register for the live session, visit https://www.itmaasiasingapore.com/webinar/9apr.
