150 manufacturers to participate in the Turkey event
Over 150 furniture manufacturers and decorators will display their latest products and design concepts at the 28th edition of Modef Expo (Furniture and Decoration Fair). The show, to be held in Inegol, Bursa in Turkey from October 10 to 14, 2012, is expected to attract professionals from all over the world.
'The event will showcase a wide range of both modern and classical designs, according to a spokesperson for IFOR Exhibitions, the organiser of the event.
“The furniture industry in Turkey is very dynamic. The high quality, design and price of the furniture make them attractive in the international arena. Turkey manufactures furniture worth $6 billion annually, of which 25 per cent is exported to global markets. Inegol, with more than 260 large-scale factories and 1,500 production centers, accounts for 35 per cent of the total export figures. For 2012, Inegol is aiming to increase its export figures to $1 billion.
“Inegol maintains its leading position as an extensive producer and exporter in Turkey. The current export report shows that there are around 300 Inegol furniture companies exporting its products to over 100 countries around the world,” says the spokesman.
“The event is ideal for companies looking at purchasing wide range of best quality products at lower prices. As Inegol-based manufacturers source their raw materials locally, they are able to offer finished products at lower prices.”
Another advantage to buyers is the strategic location of Turkey - linking European countries, Turkic Republics and Middle Eastern countries thus making transportation easier. This also helps the show attract visitors from these countries. Last year’s event attracted visitors from 48 countries.
This year the show organiser is offering free accommodation for two nights to the furniture importers.
Modef Expo 2012 will feature modern, classic, antique and modular furniture, dining and bed room sets, armchairs, chairs, sofas, kid’s furniture and furniture accessories.
Visitors to the show will include furniture shops, chain stores, wholesalers, distributors, importers, exporters, procurement managers, dealers, architects, interior decorators, industrial designers, contracting companies, furniture accessories manufacturers.
