Approximately 21,000 visitors attended ITMEX 2001, Garmentec China 2001 and China Fabrics &
Accessories Expo 2001, held concurrently in South China late last year. Nearly 100 suppliers from
Asia, Europe and the United States exhibited their latest textile and apparel machinery,
technology, fabrics and apparel accessories at the three shows and reported receiving significant
feedback from the attendees. The shows were organized by the CCPIT Xiamen Sub-council and Business
& Industrial Trade Fairs Ltd. Organizers have scheduled the three exhibitions to take place
together again in November 2002.
