The European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (CEMATEX), owner of ITMA 2011, and the
International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF) have announced the ITMA-ITMF World Textile
Summit 2011, a high-level business forum to be held alongside ITMA 2011 in Barcelona, Spain. The
one-day event, which will take place on September 21, one day before the exhibition opens, will
gather textile industry leaders and global influential thinkers and policymakers in fields such as
economics, trade, technology and sustainability. The summit will include presentations and
interactive panel discussions that will provide a global perspective on the opportunities and
challenges the textile industry will face and will offer new ideas on how to remain successful in
textile manufacturing and the supply chain.
The World Textile Summit is CEMATEX and ITMF’s first joint initiative, and organized in
partnership with international event organizer MP International and the World Textile Information
Network, a global textiles news and information provider.
