Full-fledged Tissue World Istanbul Tradeshow to Take Place in 2016

Friday, Sep 25, 2015

Tissue World, the leading platform dedicated to global tissue paper industry is pleased to announce the return of the event in Istanbul on 27 - 29 September 2016, at Istanbul Congress Center (ICC), Turkey. Following the resounding success of the inaugural Tissue World Istanbul conference in 2014, the 2016 event will include both a conference and a tradeshow.

"The tissue demand in this region is growing steadily, offering significant opportunities to both local and international players. Tissue World Istanbul provides a dedicated one-stop platform for the industry from Eastern Europe, Russia, the CIS, the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa, to meet, network and understand the intricacies involved in conducting business in such a diverse and challenging territory," said Ivan Ferrari, senior event manager for Tissue World at UBM Exhibition Singapore.

The decision to present Tissue World as a full-fledged tradeshow in Istanbul is a strategic one. In addition to the remarkable business opportunities in and around this country, Turkey enjoys one of the strongest geo-locations in Eurasia, making it the ideal meeting point connecting organizations from the East and the West.

The Tissue World Istanbul Conference in 2014 attracted over 300 tissue industry professionals from across 32 countries and enjoyed the support of the Turkish Pulp and Paper Industry Foundation. In 2016, the conference will feature 50% more sessions and speakers, offering more deep-dive sessions on critical issues influencing the industry. Over the course of three days, a panel of eminent industry figures will share best practices and technical solutions tailored to the local markets, as well as pointers on leveraging cultural differences and variable needs of this interconnected region.

On the tradeshow front, the exhibition sales floor will bring in exhibitors from across the whole tissue value chain such as tissue manufacturers, tissue converters, machinery equipment providers, distributors and retailers, as well as other suppliers to the tissue industry.

A new addition to the premier Tissue World event portfolio established since 1993, Tissue World Istanbul marks the 5th extension of Tissue World, following its success in Western Europe, North America, South America and Asia.
