Expomatex and La Mostra focused on flexibility and efficiency in product delivery

The 14th Expomatex, International Textile Machinery Fair and the 13th La Mostra, International Clothing Machinery Show have closed their doors to pavilions 3 and 4 of the Gran Vía M2 exhibition centre. Between them, the two trade fairs had an audience of 11,137 trade visitors and over 700 exhibitors (175 direct and 533 indirect).

Despite the difficult economic climate, the trade fair had an excellent response from companies and employers in the textile and clothing machinery sector. According to Antonio Langreo, director of Expomatex and La Mostra, “both trade fairs are essential for the Spanish and European textile sector to continue to innovate and be competitive. For this reason, at Fira de Barcelona we will keep on supporting the sector by continuing to hold Expomatex and La Mostra”.

Expomatex, which was attended by 5,272 trade visitors, provided a platform for 90 direct and 275 indirect exhibitors; a total of 365 companies, 34% of which were foreign. 343 companies, 85 direct and 258 indirect exhibitors participated in La Mostra, 11% of which were from outside Spain. The International Clothing Machinery Show had an audience of 5,865 people.

54% of the 11,137 visitors hold a management position (employers, managers and directors), 23% work in the technical area and the remainder in the commercial field.

The majority of national visitors, 90%, come from Spain. Catalonia, the Community of Valencia, Andalusia and Madrid, were the Autonomous Communities with the biggest presence, in that order. Foreign visitors came from Europe (European Union and the rest), Africa and Latin America.

Expomatex and La Mostra focused on flexibility and efficiency in product delivery, two of the main demands, with a wide range of machinery that covered the entire textile process. 

Accompanying activities
The accompanying activities were also well attended. The 23rd Symposium of the Asociación Española de Químicos y Coloristas Textiles was attended by 240 accredited professionals, while 114 professionals registered for the 8th International Clothing Symposium. Lastly, the Conference on knitwear, organised within the setting of Maq&Punt by Fitex and the Agrupación Española del Género de Punto, recorded an audience of around a hundred professionals.
On occasion of Expomatex and La Mostra, Fira de Barcelona opened up pavilions 3 and 4 of the Gran Vía M2 exhibition centre, ending a new expansion phase, which has added 40,500 square metres gross to the showground. The pavilions, identical in structure, distribution and surface area, offer the latest technologies and the most advanced security systems.

Expomatex and La Mostra are trade shows of Fira de Barcelona, the leading organiser of industrial and professional exhibitions in Spain and one of the first four in Europe in number of events.
