Leather, components and technology come together at Aysaf in TurkeyStrong from the impetus of the footwear sub-industry sector, Aysaf kicks off its 58th edition on 15 November 2017, with a selection of more than 400 businesses.
Leather and raw materials, and components and technology for the footwear industry will be the protagonists of the 58th edition of Aysaf to be held from 15 to 17 November 2017 at Istanbul’s CNR Expo.
The show has by now become a point of reference on both a local and international level for sector businesses and professionals. Aysaf has skilfully carved out this role of international importance for itself in parallel to the growth experienced by the Turkish footwear sub-industry sector: a growth that has been made possible by the government’s policies of stability and above all thanks to the quality of its offer, which today is considered one of the main driving forces of the Turkish economy, with the ability to serve both the flourishing local footwear industry (with an estimated production of 500 million pairs annually), and all of the Middle East, Eurasia, and North Africa.
These are the origins of the professional visitors to the fair, which were welcomed by the offer of the 450 exhibitors present at the last edition, representing nationalities like Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Egypt, France, Germany, Iran, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Morocco, Russia, Spain, Ukraine and the United Kingdom…
Organised by Pozitif Fuarcılık A.S., in cooperation with AYSAD, the Association of Turkish Footwear Components Manufacturers, TASEV, the Turkey Shoe Sector Research Development and Training Foundation, and KOSGEB, the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises Development and Support Administration Chairmanship, Aysaf welcomes its public with a selection of 400 businesses and many new proposals for the forthcoming Fall-Winter 2018-19 footwear season.
