DOMOTEX Turkey, the leading trade show for carpets and floor coverings in Turkey and the Middle East, has notched up another record, growing its visitor turnout by a massive 20 percent. The 6th edition of the show attracted some 14,300 visitors from 89 countries and featured more than 200 exhibitors from 14 countries. Organized by Deutsche Messe subsidiary Hannover Fairs Turkey, DOMOTEX Turkey 2019 helped forge B2B partnerships that will contribute to the achievement of the Turkish carpet and floor coverings industry’s export targets for 2019.
May 2019, Istanbul – Held for the sixth time in Gaziantep from 27 to 30 May 2019, DOMOTEX Turkey has once again underscored its status as Eurasia’s leading trade show for the carpet and floor coverings sectors. The show generated intense interest from international brands, attracting more than 200 exhibitor firms from 14 countries and over 14,000 visitors from 89 countries. Organized by Deutsche Messe subsidiary Hannover Fairs Turkey in partnership with the Gaziantep Chamber of Commerce, the Southeastern Anatolia Carpet Exporters Union and the Gaziantep Chamber of Carpet Producers and Weavers, the show was attended by an international delegation of buyers from a broad array of countries ranging from Russia to South Africa.
DOMOTEX Turkey has once again proven itself as a highly successful showcase for the carpet and floor coverings industries of Turkey and the Middle East. Hannover Fairs Turkey Deputy General Manager Belkıs Ertaşkın commented: “Following on from the DOMOTEX shows in Germany, USA and China, this year’s DOMOTEX Turkey show brought the world’s carpet professionals to Gaziantep. The show has achieved a steady increase in exhibitor and visitor numbers over the years, and is a strong magnet for international buyer delegations from leading flooring companies and the Turkish business community.”
The ultimate B2B trading platform
The great success of DOMOTEX Turkey – now it is sixth season – also contributes significantly to both the local Gaziantep economy and the Turkish carpet sector. Ertaşkın: “The show facilitated contact and dialogue between the Turkish carpet sector and its target markets. It brought exhibitor firms from many countries besides Turkey to Gaziantep, among them the U.S., China, Denmark, Indonesia, France, India, UK, Iran, Poland, Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan and Jordan. This year, DOMOTEX Turkey has once again strengthened its position as a flagship show and key international gathering for the carpet sector by facilitating major business deals sure to carry the sector towards its export targets. We are proud to be a part of this success.”
Unwavering focus on business
Deutsche Messe’s Global DOMOTEX Director, Sonia Wedell-Castellano, added, “The parent DOMOTEX in Hannover, Germany, has gone from strength to strength over the past 30-plus years, and is now a brand of global renown. Alongside our show in Germany, we now stage DOMOTEX events in Turkey and China as well as in the U.S. – as of last February – and with DOMOTEX Mexico to be launched this October. Needless to say, DOMOTEX Turkey has played an important role in this global success. We are taking various steps both domestically and internationally to grow DOMOTEX Turkey’s reputation as a flagship fair appealing not only to target audiences throughout Eurasia, but also from around the world. An important part of our vision for DOMOTEX Turkey is to optimally position the Turkish carpet manufacturing industry’s innovative products in an international showcase, thereby enabling the industry to keep export volumes high.”
DOMOTEX Turkey 2019 enabled Turkish and international exhibitors to build on their existing relationships in the international markets and to establish relationships with new countries and buyers. As part of the International Buyer Delegation Program organized with the support of the Turkish Ministry of Trade, foreign delegations visited the show and held bilateral business negotiations throughout the four-day period with the intention of signing off on new partnership deals with exhibitors.
