Designing the world of textiles innovatively

It's time again in June: the textile world is meeting from June 20 to 26, 2019 at the ITMA Europe, the world's leading trade fair for textile machine manufacturing. This forward-looking technology platform for the textile and clothing industry, where the industry comes together every four years, invites visitors this time to Barcelona, Spain at the Fira de Barcelona, Gran Via.

Visitors can look forward to: research and development presenting their innovations. Interesting and new innovations also await guests at Groz-Beckert's exhibition booth in Hall 8.0, Booth C101. Thanks to augmented reality, you can experience our products virtually.

This news release offers you a first glimpse into the innovations at our exhibition booth – and of course, much more awaits live in person in Barcelona.

The Groz-Beckert Academy and the Technology and Development Center (TEZ) will be at the booth presenting their cross-departmental and cross-product service program. While we made it our duty with the TEZ to provide a platform for problem solutions, optimizations, and new developments, the various training offerings of the Academy serve to pass on knowledge and know-how. In the future, analog offerings will be supplemented with digital ones so that we can be free of event times and locations. At the ITMA, you have the chance to learn everything about digitization at the Groz-Beckert Academy and the opportunities this offers you.
