IGM 2022 Exhibition, which will bring garment machinery manufacturers together for the 27th time at Istanbul Tuyap Fair and Congress Center, will be held on 8-11 September 2022. IGM 2022 Exhibition, which will embrace the entire garment and ready-to-wear industry with its wide and comprehensive participant profile, technology, and product variety, will host thousands of visitors and procurement delegations from many parts of the world from Europe to Asia, from the Middle East to the Balkans.
Umut Lazer & Makina, which has been serving as a manufacturer of embroidery machines, laser cutting machines, and fusing presses for many years, reserved its place at IGM 2022 Exhibition. Company owner Kerem İlhanlı explained the reason for participating in the IGM 2022 Exhibition as follows: ‘‘We are of the consideration that the contraction seen in almost all sectors for the last two years due to the troublesome pandemic outbreak will gain upward momentum in 2023. In particular, we think that the textile industry will be one of the locomotive sectors in the country’s exports in 2023 and the following years. Although the increasing foreign investor demands and supplies in the sector do not show parallelism with the domestic market dynamics, the opinion is that the European countries, which are the end consumers, will prefer our country. The fact that the increasing freight prices in some Asian and Far Eastern countries, which are some leading producers in the textile industry during the pandemic period, are still very high, provides a serious advantage for our country, which is opportune in terms of geographical location. Although we are going through a difficult period, the developments in the sector as the brand ‘YUEMEI’ give us hope for the future. In the light of this hope, it will be a proud occasion for us to take part in exhibitions and promotions on behalf of our country and our company. We attach great importance to the fact that the timing of the IGM 2022 Exhibition coincides with the situation of a world that has changed its crust economically and financially, and our country, which feels the discomfort of this.’’
