IDF 2016 fair cancelled

Published:  09 September, 2016

The Istanbul Leather Fair (IDF), the trade event aimed at bringing together professionals from companies in leather, fur and doubleface garments segments in Turkey and Eurasia, will not take place this year. It normally takes place each November. 

Contacted by ILM, the organisers stated that they “had not planned IDF during the 2016/2017 fair calendar”.

Organised by Tuyap in co-operation with TURDEV, the Turkish Leather Foundation, and TDKD, the Leather Apparel Producers Association of Turkey, IDF was held annually and brought together leading manufacturers, suppliers, and importers in the leather sector for over ten years.

The last edition, which took place in November 2015, saw its exhibiting halls reduced from four to only two with a strangely quiet mood prevailing. Read more here. It hosted 156 exhibiting companies from 24 countries. Buying delegations included Hong Kong, Japan, Russia, Tatarstan and the U.S.
