Alpaca United To Attend ITMA 2011
OLD LYME, Conn. - May 1, 2011 - Alpaca United is proud to announce its participation in the 2011
International Textile Machinery Association (ITMA) exhibition in Barcelona, Spain. From September
22-29, Alpaca United will showcase North American Alpaca product at this prestigious international
trade fair held once every four years. ITMA will feature the latest developments in fiber, yarn,
and fabric combined with state-of-the-art textile processing equipment. The event attracts
thousands of buyers from around the world and provides an opportunity for buyers and sellers to
interact at all levels of the textile value chain.
Alpaca United's participation in ITMA will allow the industry to extend its fiber model from that of a cottage industry to that of a commercially viable textile raw material competing at the upper end of the luxury market. CEO, Nick Hahn, other senior executives and owner/managers of leading Alpaca farms from across the US will be on hand and available to discuss brand identity, positioning, sourcing opportunities, and future company initiatives. Alpaca United will showcase fiber, yarn and fabric samples while educating buyers and industry professionals on the performance, aesthetics and value of this unique natural fiber. Alpaca United firmly believes that participating in ITMA, an event that only happens every four years, will position the company as an emerging leader in the global Textile Market and expose the fiber to an international base.
