Good response to 2nd TOS+H Expo in Istanbul (8 to 11 May 2016) among international exhibitors

The second TOS+H EXPO (Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition) will be held in Istanbul from 8 to 11 May 2016, in parallel with the 8th International Safety and Health Conference of the Turkish Ministry of Labour and Social Security. The exhibition venue will be the Halic Congress Centre where TOS+H, organised by Messe Düsseldorf and Tezulas Fuar, will occupy just over 2,500 square metres.

It has already become obvious that there will be a large number of highly diverse international exhibitors, exceeding the level of the première in 2014 (90 exhibitors, 3,540 visitors). So far exhibitors’ registrations have been received from 17 different countries, including Belgium, China, Germany, France, India, Italy, Japan, Austria, Pakistan, Poland, Switzerland, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Czech Republic, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

“Trade visitors will find that this combination of an international health and safety conference and TOS+H EXPO gives them a good platform for information, discussion and marketing, covering issues and trends in occupational health and safety – a platform which is unique in the entire region. As before, the main emphasis of the trade fair will be on personal protection equipment (PPE). One area which has recently seen a very large number of innovations is that of safe work at heights – both on scaffolding and secured by ropes, says Birgit Horn, Director of Messe Düsseldorf with responsibility for TOS + H Expo.

As Turkey has a particularly high proportion of its population in employment and has experienced above-average economic growth, it is now an attractive market for suppliers of PPE products. Around 27 million employees represent a large number of potential users of personal protection equipment.

“Ever since it was launched, TOS+H EXPO has aroused considerable interest in occupational healthcare, health and safety among leading companies, both in Turkey and elsewhere in the world. Moreover, TOS+H is the only trade fair for this industry on the Turkish market, and so we can expect positive growth for the next few years,” says Ms. Demet Tezulas, the owner of Tezulas Fuar.

In 2013 Turkey was the partner country of A+A in Düsseldorf, the world’s leading trade fair and conference in health and safety at work. Based on this partnership, Messe Düsseldorf started planning for the implementation and establishment of TOS+H EXPO in coordination with the Turkish Ministry of Labour and Social Security. The trade fair will be conducted by Messe Düsseldorf, the organisers of A+A, together with the local organisers, Tezulas Fuar.
