Chairman's Message

Dear Friends,

In its 13th year after establishment, our Association continues with its activities for the purpose of becoming the voice and worldwide door for lingerie sector and to solve any problems experienced. I would like to thank our valued vice chair and executive board members who have spent a great deal of effort to make our work a success, and to our dear members who have continued to support us.

It is an indisputable fact that the garment industry in Turkey, with the fourth highest production capacity in the world needs a better organization for promotion which is equivalent with its strength and capacity. With a strong support from our sector, LINEXPO Istanbul Lingerie and Hosiery Fair will be held at Istanbul Exhibitions Center IFM, located opposite of Yesilkoy Ataturk Airport, between the dates February 9-11, 2017.

Undoubtedly, LINEXPO will be more successful than the previous ones due to one-on-one introductions we have conducted at targeted markets and various announcements and events we have implemented through different channels. Knowing that design is the most important source of power in order to reach the added value; we will organize the fourth lingerie design competition, which aims to bring in new designers to our sectors, simultaneously with Istanbul Fashion Week in May. Our work to establish a unity of reason and power in the fields of investment, production, marketing and training also continue.

With such feelings and thoughts, I hereby greet you on behalf of my executive board and I invite the sector to come and join us within our association and to participate actively.
