Exhibition Space Open At ITMA Asia + CITME 2010 In Shanghai

Organizers of the second ITMA Asia + CITME textile machinery exhibition — to be held June 22-26,
2010, at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai’s Pudong district — are inviting
textile machinery manufacturers to apply for exhibition space. According to show organizers Beijing
Textile Machinery International Exhibition Co. Ltd. and Singapore-based MP International Pte. Ltd.,
the exhibition is expected to draw a record response, despite the current global economic climate.

“In a world of uncertainty, manufacturers are looking increasingly at cost-cutting measures
and value propositions,” said Maria Avery, secretary general, CEMATEX, the European Committee of
Textile Machinery Manufacturers, owner of ITMA Asia. “Textile machinery manufacturers will
consolidate their resources and rely on established platforms that deliver great value and
sustainability. Hence, we are confident that all the leading brand names will continue to have a
presence in credible showcases that are organized by the industry.”

Launched in 2008 by CEMATEX and its Chinese partners — the Sub-Council of Textile Industry,
the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, the China Textile Machinery Association
and China Exhibition Centre Group Corporation — ITMA Asia + CITME combines two previously
independently produced Asian textile machinery exhibitions. The inaugural ITMA Asia + CITME, which
drew 1,368 exhibitors from 30 countries and regions and more than 80,000 trade visitors from 96
countries and regions, sold out its exhibition space. Applications for space are due September 30,
2009. For more information about the show, visit
