TİGSAD Chairman Nazım Kanpolat: IGM Exhibition Will Be Successful Just Like ITM and HIGHTEX Exhibitions

Nazım Kanpolat, Chairman of All Underwear Industrialists’ Association (TİGSAD) stated; ‘‘The success of Teknik Fairs in the field of exhibition organization is obvious. For this reason, IGM 2022 Exhibition will be as successful as the ITM and HIGHTEX Exhibitions you have been organizing for many years. As exporters’ unions, associations and underwear manufacturers, we support you in your endeavors.’’

The garment machinery industry, ready-to-wear manufacturers and investors come together at the IGM 2022 Exhibition, the most comprehensive meeting point of the industry. There is an intense participation demand to the IGM Exhibition, whose sales continue at full steam, and moreover, the exhibition also receives support from industry representatives and unions.

Nazım Kanpolat, Chairman of the All Underwear Industrialists’ Association (TİGSAD), expressed that as an underwear and ready-to-wear manufacturer, he has been in the exhibition industry for many years and has participated in exhibitions held in many parts of the world, continued his statements as follows; ‘‘I know very well the contributions of exhibitions to the industry. If the right companies organize exhibitions with the right strategies, both sides win. International exhibitions have a great contribution to both the Turkish economy and our companies. However, the number of exhibitions organized for the 5th, 10th and 15th time in our country, and the number of companies that organize such long-term exhibitions, are very few. Unfortunately, the exhibitions, which are organized with the mentality making easy money in 1-2 years, using intensely state incentives, are unfortunately not long-term. Therefore, such exhibitions cannot survive. However, our exhibitions can reach their 20th or even 30th if they are organized with a system that will benefit both sides.’’

Underlining that there are also companies that have signed up for long-term fairs, Nazım Kanpolat continued his words as follows: ‘‘We, as associations and exporters’ unions, are ready to give our best support to these companies. Municipalities, non-governmental organizations, chambers of industry and exporters’ unions need to join hands to enlarge the exhibitions and extend their duration. In the future, we need to be holding the 30th and 50th exhibitions, not the 3rd or the 5th. I think that the exhibition organization will continue to develop in the coming period.’’

As exporters’ unions, associations and underwear manufacturers, we support you in your endeavors

Nazım Kanpolat also made the following assessment regarding the IGM 2022 Exhibition: ‘‘The success of Teknik Fairs in the field of exhibition organization is evident. For this reason, IGM 2022 Exhibition will be as successful as the ITM and HIGHTEX Exhibitions you have been organizing for many years. We are happy that the garment and ready-made clothing industry will have such an exhibition in the coming period. IGM Exhibition will make great contributions to both the sector and the country’s economy. We, as exporters’ unions, associations and underwear manufacturers, will support you in your endeavors.’’
