Gaziantep: A major center of machine-made carpets
At one of the world's leading centers of machine-made carpet production, Domotex Turkey 2017 will be held from 22 to 25 May in Gaziantep. The show, in its fourth season next year, is Turkey's leading international carpet and flooring exhibition.
Manufacturers from around the world leverage its reach to build and strengthen relationships with trading partners from Turkey and the Middle East and open up new markets for their products. Domotex Turkey is organized by Deutsche Messe subsidiary Hannover Fairs Turkey in partnership with the Gaziantep Chamber of Commerce (GTO), the Southeastern Anatolia Carpet Exporters' Union (GAIB) and the Gaziantep Chamber of Carpet Producers (GHO). Located in Turkey's Southeastern Anatolia region, Gaziantep is one of the world's leading centers of machine-made carpet production. It is therefore the perfect location for Domotex Turkey. The show enjoys solid support from local manufacturers – so much so, in fact, that the organizers anticipate a strong exhibitor turnout for the 2017 season.
Large and diverse product offering
“A large percentage of our exhibitors are based in and around Gaziantep, so we're looking forward to a large and richly diverse product offering at the upcoming show,” commented Hannover Fairs Turkey General Manager Alexander Kühnel. “Domotex Turkey will once again highlight Turkey's strong position in the global machine-made-carpet sector.”
