In the calendar of international textile machinery exhibitions, CAITME is among the most successful. Despite its youth, CAITME has taken up a position as a key industry event in Central Asia, which brings together world-famous textile machinery manufacturers. The stands at CAITME regularly feature presentations of high-tech equipment necessary in each area of the manufacturing process: from fibres and yarns to finished textile products.

The CAITME exhibition is complemented by the Textile Expo Uzbekistan exhibition, which presents various textile industry products, yarns, unbleached and finished fabrics, knitted fabrics, garments, home textiles, and accessories and materials for sewing clothing.

The joint exhibition this year will present about 200 companies from 16 countries, including: Austria, Belgium, UK, Germany, India, Italy, China, Pakistan, Russia, Belarus, Turkey, Uzbekistan, France, Switzerland, South Korea and Japan.

Traditionally, leading textile equipment manufacturers and developers of technology for the textile industry participate in CAITME. The range of participating countries provides an overview of leading global distribution among manufacturers of textile machinery.

The main part of the exhibition will be occupied by manufacturers from Europe. This year, Italy has the greatest representation among European manufacturers with 30 participating companies, followed by Germany in second place with 26 companies, and Switzerland in third with eight companies. Three companies will represent Belgium, and Austria, the UK and France will each have two companies at the exhibition.

For the second consecutive year, the outright leader is Turkey with 44 companies.

Of Asian countries, the largest number of exhibitors is from China (12 companies), followed by India (6), South Korea (3) and Japan (2).

Of CIS countries, we are pleased that Russian companies will participate. For the first time in the history of exhibition, five Russian companies will take part, three of which are manufacturers of machinery and components for textile production.

The host country of the exhibition, Uzbekistan, has also expanded its ranks with nine exhibiting companies, which is an increase on last year (4 companies). These are primarily the representative offices of foreign companies and enterprises.

The high level of interest from international companies is due to the attractiveness of the region’s textile industry for foreign investors, who see the Central Asian countries, and in particular Uzbekistan, as a promising and new market for technology lines. In the last few years alone, Uzbekistan’s textile industry has attracted foreign investment of more than $1.3 billion, and over 100 businesses have been established, with the participation of foreign investment from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Turkey, USA, India and other countries.

The most interesting display is being prepared by companies in the textile machinery sector, which forms a major part (85%) of the exhibition. It will present leading international companies: Textima Export & Import GmbH, Truetzschler GmbH, Ferrostaal AG, Oerlikon Textile GmbH, Marzoli Spa, Rieter Machine Works Ltd., Benteks AS, Erkol, Astas Juki, Picanol, Van de Wiele Grup, China Texmatech and other major companies and representative offices.

This year, the exhibition will feature over 60 newcomers, including: Cobble Blackburn Ltd. (UK), a manufacturer of tufting machines and looms; Cormatex s.r.l. (Italy), a manufacturer of textile machinery sold in international markets since 1938.; Consorzio Toscana Expo Mec (Italy), a consortium that specialises in building and supplying accessories for textile machinery; and Bodal Chemical Ltd., a large company from India, which produces and exports dyes for leather, textiles and paper. A group of Italian companies, CEAM, will be presented by the Italian-Uzbek Chamber of Commerce. The group includes manufacturers of high-tech equipment and components for the textile industry: Plantex Spa, Simet Srl, Temporiti Srl, Gadda Srl, Castiglioni Antonluigi Srl, Master Srl, Loris Bellini Spa, Toscana Spazzole Industriali Srl, and many others.

Every year, Textile Expo Uzbekistan attracts the attention of clothing manufacturers, and exporters and importers of textile products. This unique industry event is an ideal platform for business communication between professionals. This year, the number of exhibitors at the event has increased by 35%, with over 40 companies from 8 countries.

Today, it is clear that Uzbekistan’s textile and light industry is developing at an encouraging rate. In the next 5 years alone, over 100 projects are due to be implemented in the textile and light industry, with a total cost of over $1.6 billion. For this purpose, a Programme for the Development of Uzbekistan’s Light and Textile Industry for 2010-2015 has been developed. It is, therefore, unsurprising that a major part of the exhibition will be occupied by domestic producers of yarn, knitted fabrics, fabrics and finished products: BF Tekstil, Elnur & Ruslan Textile, Kaloramatex / Besharik Tekstil, Muruvvat-teks, Orange Energy, Tashtib-Tex and Uztex Chirchik.

Among the newcomers to the exhibition, the most visited stand promises to be that of Sophie Hallette (France). Many prestigious fashion houses in France and throughout the world - including Chanel, Chloe, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Valentino - place their trust in the products of this company, using lace and tulle in the creation of each new collection.

Another of the special exhibitors, Strella Fabrics Ltd. (UK), is a manufacturer of hand-made fabrics for evening and wedding dresses.

For the first time, manufacturers from Pakistan will exhibit at Textile Expo Uzbekistan. Their products will be presented on a single national stand of this country. The exhibitors at the National Stand of Pakistan include producers of yarn, fabrics, double-dyed products and home textiles.

In order to develop business partnerships between representatives of the textile industry from different countries, the second day of the exhibition (5 November) will feature business meetings between exhibitors and the management of SJSC Uzbekengilsanoat. And on the third day of the exhibition (6 November) there will be a business tour for exhibitors of selected industrial enterprises, which are members of SJSC Uzbekengilsanoat.

In general, CAITME 2010 and Textile Expo Uzbekistan 2010 will be full of business meetings and interesting presentations, which will contribute to the success of the programme of modernisation of the textile industry, and will play a key role in the implementation of reforms aimed at modernising and re-equipping companies in Uzbekistan’s textile industry.
