ITMA 2019, the world's largest textile and garment technology exhibition schedule to take place on June 20, 2019, in Spain, will discuss hot button issues such as sustainable innovation, Industry 4.0 and automation. It will also feature a number of industry-leading knowledge-sharing events to facilitate sharing and collaboration among global textile and garment industry members.

CEMATEX, organiser of ITMA 2019 said that the cluster of accompanying events will spotlight key industry challenges and leading-edge solutions that will support industry members' drive for sustainability and competitiveness.

It is now a meaningful platform for all industry stakeholders to share new breakthroughs, brainstorm solutions and explore collaboration.

The 3rd Textile Colourant and Chemical Leaders Forum at ITMA 2019 will focus on the theme “The Circular Economy and Resource Sustainability Strategy”. The discussions will centre on the circular economy and resource sustainability strategy and how textile chemicals and innovative and cleaner technologies can support it under the influence of Industry 4.0 emerging strategic concept, said Andrew Filarowski, chairman of the forum's organising committee and technical director of the Society of Dyers and Colourists.

ITMA will also be jointly organizing the Nonwovens Forum with the International Association for the Nonwovens and Related Industries (EDANA).

Hence, they look forward to working with ITMA on the Nonwovens Forum.

The one-day event on 21 June will feature discussions on the latest innovations in nonwovens based on the theme “ Nonwovens manufacturing processes for the 21st century” a more flexible, more efficient, more sustainable.
