TR – The 29th edition of the Promotürk took place at the ifm Expo Centre Istanbul from September 4-7, 2014. For the first time in years the Turkish association with the same name didn’t fall back on EUF for assistance in organising the trade fair, but relied instead on Fiera Milano Interteks, the Turkish subsidiary of the Milan-based exhibition company.
The official figures on attendance and the number of exhibitors were not available at the time of going to press. Predominantly Turkish suppliers, including also several distributors, presented their wares and fares. The fair didn’t seem to be as well-attended as in previous years. This was not doubt partly due to the fact that the event, which was originally scheduled to take place in April, had been moved to the September date just three weeks beforehand. The venue dates for the Promotürk 2015 have not been announced yet.
A detailed report will follow in the next issue of eppi magazine, No. 101 (September 24, 2014).
