The third edition of the TEXHIBITION Istanbul Fabric, Yarn, and Textile Accessories Fair was well conducted in Istanbul from 8-10 March, with in excess of 440 exhibitors and 18,000 visitors from more than 100 countries in attendance. The fair saw a great interest in both exhibitor and visitor numbers, indicating the growth of the textile industry in Turkey.
TEXHIBITION Istanbul is already become an international hub for the textile preliminary sector, drawing industry players from the EU, UK, Eastern Europe, USA, South America, North Africa, and the Middle East. The event, organized by the Istanbul Textile Exporters' Association (ITHIB) and the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce (ICOC), saw three days of busy business activity.
Interestingly sustainability was a theme at the center of the fair, with a special emphasis on the European Green Deal. This is in some sense a starting point for the Turkish industry to comply with the requirements of European customers and to ensure that the industry remains sustainable and environmentally responsible.
The forthcoming Texhibition Istanbul is scheduled for 13-15 September 2023.
