Tissue industry professionals from four continents to convene at Tissue World Istanbul
Tissue World Istanbul, the international gathering of the tissue industry, will take place at the Istanbul Congress Centre from 4th to 6th September 2018.
Supported by leading industry players and proving its industrial success with a record level of attendance in 2016 (more than 1600 industrial professionals from 65 countries), this year's Tissue World Istanbul will welcome for the first time the non-woven hygiene machinery suppliers, alongside the regular contingent of retail industry representatives, logistics companies, tissue suppliers, consulting firms, non-woven producers, related civil society organisations and public authorities.
Istanbul holds a strategic importance in tissue industry, being at the crossroads of an important regional business network, and is recognised as the most comprehensive tissue exhibition in the region covering the Middle East, Middle Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, Russia and Turkic Republics.
Esin Aslihan, UBM Istanbul brand director, says the primary goal of Tissue World Istanbul is to serve the development of the tissue industry in the region: "The Turkish tissue industry has achieved growth with new investments each year, increased employment and boosted exports. We aim at serving the development of both our industry and country with new business opportunities and a wider business network brought by this successful trade show.
"This year, the non-woven machinery manufacturers will also be exhibiting on the show floor. By doing this, we are getting prepared to unite leaders and decision-makers of the industry with 360 degrees of coverage and we are inviting all industrial representatives to discover the ways to move our industry much further."
Alp Ogucu, managing director, Lila Group says Tissue World Istanbul is ready to meet industrial expectations: "We are proud to be the sponsor of Tissue World Istanbul which covers not only tissue paper producers but also raw material support to meet a vital demand of the industry.
"Lila Paper also exports to 68 countries and therefore, one of the main reasons we took our place in this platform is that Tissue World Istanbul addresses our target markets including the Middle East, Middle Asia and Africa.
"The conference also casts light upon the future of the industry as a platform where industrial developments are discussed. This year, we will bring critical topics to the table including possible bottlenecks in raw material resources due to global warming and climate change as well as industrial capital development."
