Turkish fair Texhub in November
Texhub will be held in Turkey from November 7 to 9, 2018. This is a comprehensive business platform for exhibiting superior garment fabrics and accessories. The exhibition will see Turkish and foreign participants, including well-known companies from the Chinese and the Indian textile industry, and many European participants, especially the UK.
Around 180 companies will exhibit their products. The event will provide significant opportunities for new business connections. Turkey imported 658 circular knitting machines in the first four months of 2018 – almost three times as many as in the first four months of 2017. The 658 circular knitting machines imported so far this year came from eight countries – three European countries and five countries in the Far East.
Turkey is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of knitted fabrics. As Turkey’s textile exports grow, the country’s textile manufacturing companies will have to upgrade their machinery, parts and components, as well as the manufacturing processes. Turkish textile companies are also being encouraged to consider technical collaboration with foreign partners.
There is a strong textile market in Turkey and a strong garment manufacturing market. Because of the small distances people choose to do both in the same place to save transport costs, and lots of mills now are also manufacturers.
