Following a successful debut event last year, the Mattress Supply Industry and Technologies Fair will have its second edition this coming fall.
The International Bedding Industry Association Expo 2023 is planned for Sept. 28 through Oct. 1 at the Istanbul Expo Center. It is expected to showcase the products and services of about 300 suppliers to the bedding industry in about 350,000 square feet of space at the Expo Center.
“IBIA Expo brings together professional buyers from all over the world in Istanbul as a unique meeting point where the leading bedding supplier industry and technology companies of Turkey and the world exhibit their new and innovative products,” show organizers say on the IBIA website. “With IBIA Expo, the newest products, innovative materials, components and technologies come together under one roof.”
