Istanbul International Hardware Fair – Turkey’s international arena 21 July 2023

Istanbul International Hardware Fair, an international fair for hardware and tools, is preparing to hold its most comprehensive meeting this year at the Istanbul Expo Center on 24th – 27th August.

The Istanbul International Hardware Fair already has a record-breaking number of exhibitors, with 300 domestic and 150 foreign companies exhibiting this year. Held with the platinum sponsorship of Karbosan and the gold sponsorship of Caldini and Istweld, the event aims to encourage Turkey’s fastener industry to connect with foreign markets. The fair will also provide access to the global market by bringing professional purchasers and decision makers to the same platform.  

“Ongoing travel restrictions in Asia, the Russia-Ukraine conflict, a worsening energy crisis, the raw material crisis, and record-breaking inflation rates, all make the Turkish market preferable for the international markets,” states Yusuf Okçu, international marketing and sales manager at International Istanbul Hardware Fair. “Quality production, fast delivery and reasonable prices also strengthen our market in terms of competition. We hope to promote the Istanbul International Hardware Fair in the most important markets and fairs of the industry.”

Introducing a new hall

This year the Istanbul International Hardware Fair will also host more than 100 participants in the exclusive Occupational Health & Safety Hall, alongside conference sessions with the cooperation with Turkish Occupational Safety and Businessmen's Association (TIGIAD). The sessions, which will emphasise the connection and importance of occupational safety with the hardware and tools sector, aims to add value to both sectors.  

The Istanbul International Hardware Fair, alongside the Occupational Health & Safety Hall, will offer the opportunity to experience recent developments and innovations in the sector, as well as develop new investment opportunities.
