“ITMA is the world’s most established textile and garment machinery exhibition since 1951 […] The drive towards sustainability in the entire textile and garment value chain is increasingly integrated with enlightened business practices, and innovative technology holds the key to environmental sustainability.” (source ITMA official website)
The 5th Advisory Board Meeting has taken place in the ITMA fair kindly hosted by the exhibiting IT company Schaeffer Productique in the Hall 8 (Software)
The main topics addressed included new opportunities to support digitalisation of textile and clothing companies in Europe, particularly, SMEs. Many fashion companies appeared to increase interest in traceability along the supply chain and use of RFID tags in finished products. This may be a remarkable opportunity for further exploitation of eBIZ.
