After following a two-year show cycle since its inception in 2004, the next ITM textile
machinery show in Istanbul will be held in May 2009, instead of in 2008 as was previously planned.
Show organizer Teknik Ltd. decided to move the show after other major international trade shows
moved their dates in conflict. The show also is promoted as a technology show, and Teknik felt it
would best benefit the textile industry if its show did not follow so closely behind ITMA ’07,
which will be held in Munich this September.
