Nearly sold out: 3rd TOS+H Expo in Istanbul very positive outlook


6 to 9 May 2018 will see the 3rd TOS+H Expo take place in Istanbul. Numerous exhibitors, including household names in the industry and newcomers, have already registered. Even today almost the entire exhibition area on the outdoor area of the Halic Congress Center has been booked. Held in parallel with the Turkish Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition, organized by Messe Düsseldorf GmbH and its local partner Tezulaş Fuar, will be the IX. International Occupational Health and Safety Congress, organised by the Turkish Ministry of Labour and Social Security.


About two months to the start of the trade fair, the 3rd TOS+H Expo is next to being sold out. The number of square metres occupied gives rise to joy for the joint organisers Messe Düsseldorf and Tezulaş Fuar: even today over 2,000 square metres have already been rented out and only few spacs are left. Registered participants already include more than 60 exhibitors from Belgium, China, Germany, France, United Kingdom, India, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and Turkey. Both Turkish PPE manufacturers such as Demir Kundura, Ismont Textil, MFA and Yakupoglu YDS are represented and international industry giants such as 3M, Ansell Healthcare, Draeger and Uvex.


“This positive development underlines that people count – not only in Turkey but throughout the world,“ delights Birgit Horn, Global Head Occupational Safety & Health, and refers to the international portfolio of Messe Düsseldorf for occupational safety and medicine, which was established under the umbrella of A+A Düsseldorf, the leading global Trade fair for Safety, Security and Health at Work, in continental markets such as Singapore, India, China, Japan and Turkey. “We are pleased to note that TOS+H succeeded in growing into the leading industry platform in Turkey since 2014, where participating companies use the opportunity to network with experts thereby making an important contribution to health and safety at work in Turkey and the neighbouring countries.”


In keeping with the nomenclature of A+A in Düsseldorf, TOS+H held from  6 to 9 May 2018 will feature the focal themes Safety, Security and Health at Work presenting a wealth of innovations on the premises of the Halic Congress Center. Exhibiting enterprises are currently challenged by the rising digitalisation in the working environment, on the one hand, and demographic change, on the other. This is why exhibitors will present their solutions and product developments specifically for these challenges at TOS+H Expo. Like in 2014 and 2016 the Turkish Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition will be accompanied by the concurrently held IX. International Occupational Health and Safety Congress. The latter will also be held at the Halic Congress Centre and organised and executed by the Turkish Ministry of Labour and Social Security (CSGB).


Boasting over 20 million insurees Turkey holds a high user potential for personal protective equipment and has developed into an attractive market for protective gear over the years.
