Re: Participation in TEXWORLD ISTANBUL in Turkey from 3 to 5th November, 2015
We are glad to inform you that the Council is proposing to organize participation of its member-companies in the forthcoming TEXWORLD ISTANBUL being held at Lutfi Kirdar International Convention and Exhibition Centre in Turkey from 3 to 5th November, 2015. As you are also aware, TEXWORLD ISTANBUL is one of the renowned International Fairs in Turkey, which does attract leading buyers from all over Turkey and the neighboring countries as well. The Fair is being organized by Messe Frankfurt Istanbul Uluslararasi Fuarcilik Ltd.
Profile of the Event
TEXWORLD ISTANBUL is an important Fair for professionals from all fields of the industry. Over the past few years, fabrics imports from all over the world into Turkey have increased visibly. This is valid for raw materials and finished goods alike, and it happened parallel to the growth of the domestic market. Today's size of the Turkish market gives path to the fact that "the bigger the market, the more diverse the import basket". This also created a high demand for fabrics from new sourcing points like Asia, North Africa, South America and Eastern Europe.
Turkey has a traditionally strong and highly developed production base for almost all Industries, and it supplies many needs from domestic sources, but diversified production needs of the domestic market make import of a variety of goods necessary.
TEXWORLD, as the strongest global brand for fashion fabrics Fairs, has been closely connected to the Turkish market in terms of exhibitors and visitors since its foundation. A rollout into the Turkish market is logical, as Turkey has one of the strongest global textile industries. The specific structure of TEXWORLD and the strength of the brand in developing markets make it an advantageous project-idea for markets with increased import needs from global production bases.
Why to participate in TEXWORLD ISTANBUL?
Garment manufacturers, textile Retailers and wholesalers, large-scale retailing, & Chain/Department stores, Designers, private Label Producers, and Buying Officers & Sales Representatives.
