Organised in the partnership with Teknik Fairs Inc. and Tüyap Tüm Fuarcılık Yapım Inc., ITM 2022 – International Textile Machinery Exhibition was held at Tüyap Fair and Congress Center between 14-18 June in Istanbul.
The ITM 2022 Exhibition, which was organized in 12 halls on an area of 120,000 square meters, broke records with both exhibitors, visitors and machinery sales.

Turkey Became the World’s Supply Center at the ITM 2022 Exhibition
The successful sales graph achieved at the ITM 2022 exhibition proved that the difficulties experienced due to the pandemic for the last three years have been left behind. Turkey has become a supply centre for European, Middle Eastern and African countries, especially with the disruption of the supply chain in Far East countries, including China.
The fact that manufacturers from all over the world such as Andorra, Angola, Honduras, Peru, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Egypt, Iran, and Oman purchased a large number of machinery and signed strong collaborations at the ITM 2022 Exhibition has proven this.
Satisfied exhibitors reserve larger booths for ITM 2024
Many exhibitors, who stated that they have achieved a sales graphic far above their expectations starting from the very first day of the ITM 2022 exhibition and that they have hosted visitors from all over the world, decided to enlarge their stands at the ITM 2024 exhibition. During the exhibition, companies visited the registration application points and applied for ITM 2024 participation.
The next ITM and HIGHTEX exhibitions will be held in Istanbul between 4-8 June, 2024.
