Gaziantep Carpet Fair in May 2024

From 28 to 30 May 2024, a new trade fair will be held in Gaziantep, Turkey: the Gaziantep Carpet Fair. The event is organised by Tüyap Exhibitions Group in cooperation with the Gaziantep Chamber of Commerce. The southern Anatolian city of Gaziantep is the centre of Turkish machine-woven carpet production and the fair will therefore focus on this product group. Exhibitors are not exclusively from Turkey; companies from Iran and Jordan have already registered. The majority of trade visitors are expected to come from the Middle East, the MENA region, North Africa and Europe.

Ilhan Ersözlü, General Manager of Tüyap Exhibitions Group, emphasised Gaziantep's global leadership in the production and export of machine-made carpets, saying, "This potential needs to be better known worldwide and in our country. We believe that our fair, to be held for the first time this year, will make a significant impact".

Tuncay Yıldırım, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Gaziantep Chamber of Commerce, expressed his excitement and optimism for the Gaziantep Carpet Fair, stating that the carpet sector is at the forefront of Gaziantep's economy. Yıldırım said, "Gaziantep, with a strong production infrastructure and market share that determines global carpet fashion, is preparing to host the world carpet industry from May 28 to 31. It is exciting that representatives of the industry from all over the world will come to our city for the Gaziantep Carpet Fair".
