Texworld Istanbul receives large number of registrations

There has been an excellent response to the first Texworld Istanbul, according to Messe Frankfurt that expects to welcome around 150 exhibitors from 10 countries to the Lütfi Kirdar International Convention & Exhibition Centre from 4-6 November 2014.

“The large number of registrations received to date confirms that we were on the right track when we decided to hold a biannual platform in this region for the international textile industry,” said Olaf Schmidt, Vice President, Textiles & Textile Technologies, Messe Frankfurt.

Turkey is one of the world’s ten biggest textile exporters and holds seventh place as a world garment exporter.

“Now, following Texworld in Paris and New York, Texworld Istanbul is moving into position as a new member of this strong international brand.”


Exhibitors at Texworld Istanbul, mostly coming from Asia, will reflect the entire market for apparel fabrics and accessories.

The world’s leading textile manufacturing nations, including China, India, Pakistan, Taiwan and South Korea, will be represented with their own pavilions. Thus, the fair is aimed primarily at buyers and trade visitors from Turkey, the Near and Middle East, Central Asia, Southeast Europe, parts of Eastern Europe and Russia.

Biggest textile exporter

“Texworld Paris and Texworld USA have had close links with the Turkish market on both the exhibitor and visitor sides for a long time. The exhibitor polls conducted at both fairs showed a high level of interest in a fair in Istanbul because there is a great demand in the Turkish market for fabric qualities not produced in the country itself,” commented Olaf Schmidt.

Turkey is one of the world’s ten biggest textile exporters and holds seventh place as a world garment exporter. According to the Turkish government, the textile and apparel industry turnover amounts around US 28 billion a year.

Garment fabrics and accessories

 “Thus, visitors and exhibitors will find the product groups they are familiar with from Paris and have no trouble finding their way around”, said Tayfun Yardim, Deputy General Manager, Messe Frankfurt Istanbul. “Texworld Istanbul will be characterised by a broad product spectrum and optimum value for money.”

Pakistan, for example, will present cotton and functional fabrics. Taiwan focuses on blended fabrics, knitted and functional fabrics for leisurewear and sportswear. India, South Korea and Indonesia are represented by lace, embroidery, silk and silky aspects. Additionally, Turkey, South Korea and Taiwan will be showing products for the knitwear sector.
