Transforming the world of textiles

“Transforming the world of textiles”: this is the claim on which the 2023 edition is preparing to open its doors. Always an event characterized by the high level of innovation of the technological proposals, at ITMA 2023 we will talk above all about sustainability and digitization. Alessandro Zucchi, president of Acimit: “The textile supply chain is moving towards increasingly competitive production processes, where the reduction of production costs, through a lower consumption of water, energy and raw materials, is combined with attention to the environment. Equally important is the digital transformation of companies, a process, that of digitization, which will allow technology suppliers and their customers to operate in an increasingly constructive and efficient way”.
