Itema at ITM 2018

At Itema we take exhibitions seriously. We believe that these events are not merely business related occasions, but a moment to bring directly to our Customers our innovations, our technology and, most importantly, our way to do things. We seize the opportunity to proudly bring to our guests’ attention all the accomplishments since the last time we met. We put all our efforts in providing the most comfortable environment and we work hard on every single detail. We choose carefully which machines we will showcase starting from an essential criterion: design a machines’ line-up that meets exactly the market request to allow our visitors to immediately understand the superior capability of our technology in the field of their specific interest. Nothing is left to chance; everything is developed to give you a unique and interesting experience. An important exhibition is waiting for us in Istanbul where from the 14th to the 17th of April we will participate in ITM 2018.
