Heimtextil 2012 which is one of the most prestigious home textile fairs of the world has been held in Frankfurt. From Turkey, 176 companies with 517 different products participated in the fair. Among these stands, 44 were from Denizli and many textile producers form Denizli visited the fair, as well.

The governor of Denizli Mr. Abdulkadir Demir, the deputy of Denizli Mr. Nihat Zeybekci and the mayor of Denizli Mr. Osman Zolan went to Frankfurt in order to visit Denizli Stands and to get information about the fair and the home textile sector.

To tell the truth, the fair met the expectations in a positive way. The importance of the textile sector for Denizli and the point where Denizli is standing at, has been proved one more time.

Heimtextil Fair is the biggest international fair that has had a special importance for Denizli for years. As it does every year, Denizli Exporters' Association prepared a catalog to be delivered to the visitors at the fair. The issue involved in the visuals and contact information of Denizli firms which opened a stand in the fair. These were delivered at the most crowded corners, trade press and of the event area and of course at Turkish Home Textiles stand.

The stand of "Turkish Home Textile” which presented the Turkish Towel concept was opened at Hall 4. The 60 squaremeters stand were designed by Professional Belgian Designers and organised by Uludağ Exporters' Association and Denizli Exporters' Association. The stand was prepared as a house and the bathroom of this house was including the products mostly designed and produced by the firms from Denizli. All these products were labeled with the producer firm and its Hall number so that the visitors could learn and visit the firms.

This year, the first time an office were rented between the Hall 8 and Hall 9 where Denizli stands were opened.

As Denizli Exporters' Association, we believe there is going to be positive reflections of Heimtextil 2012 on our export amount. Knowing the importance of the Fair for our members who are exporting home textile products, we will go on producing projects that will maintain the promotion of Denizli and the sector.
