Istanbul Host FURNistanbul International Home Furnishings Trade Show in 2014

Furniture World News


From May 24th-27th 2014, Turkey will host an event in legendary Istanbul. FURNistanbul 2014, Turkey’s international home furnishings trade show, will welcome visitors from eighteen nearby emerging markets. Istanbul, a cosmopolitan metropolis, is poised at the crossroads of the eastern and western commerce. The only city situated on two continents, Istanbul offers ideal opportunities for international furniture exporters to promote their products to Turkey’s domestic market, as well as test the waters in potential markets that maintain trade-friendly relationships with Turkey.

These countries include Dubai, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Bulgaria, Libya, Romania, Serbia, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Greece, Kazakstan, Turkmenistan, as well as Germany and other European countries. Most of the buyers come from countries lacking their own manufacturing resources. Due to the supply and demand imbalance, these buyers hold enormous purchasing power and are hungry for quality product.

FURNistanbul, slated for the world-class Tuyap Convention and Congress Center, features 1,060,000 square feet of exhibition space in twelve halls, with 650,000 square feet allocated to furniture. Tuyap Center hosts 14,000 exhibitors annually from almost sixty counties, plus 2,000,000 visitors from seventy countries. Product categories spotlighted at the show will include Residential Furniture, Office and Contract, Bedding, Home Accents, Lighting and Kitchen.

Doing business in Turkey is easy, with no complicated visa procedures and convenient, relatively inexpensive travel and hotel accommodations. A special discount on exhibition space is available with reservations made by October 20, 2013.
