It was founded in 1916 in Chicago as the National Association of Office Appliance Manufacturers to be the trade association for the business equipment industry. Known in later years as Office Equipment Manufacturers Institute, Business Equipment Manufacturers Association, and Computer and Business Equipment Manufacturers Association (CBEMA), it became ITI in 1994.
