Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony Opens ATME-I 2000

The American Textile Machinery Exhibition-International (ATME-I) 2000 opened Oct. 23, 2000, with a ribbon cutting ceremony. South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Bob Peeler and Greenville, S.C., Mayor Knox White cut the ribbon, assisted by American Textile Machinery Association (ATMA) Chairman Timothy J. Whitener, president, Luwa Bahnson, Winston Salem, N.C.; and Richard K. Heusel, chairman, Textile Hall Corp., and founder and CEO, KM Fabrics, Greenville.ATME-I 2000 featured 539 exhibitors from 25 countries. The five-day show attracted more than 9,600 visitors from 53 countries.In related news, ATMA and Textile Hall Corp. announced that ATME-I will be held in Greenville, presumably in 2004 and 2005, under the current split show format, making the following statement: [In 1999], the two organizations announced their intention to consolidate ATME-I into a single show. That objective has not changed. The co-sponsors will continue to evaluate the feasibility and advantages to the textile industry in the Americas, as well as to all the machinery and service exhibitors located throughout the world, of providing a single, all-process machinery exhibition [see ATME-I 2000: Two Many, ATI, this issue].
