IFCO Sourcing offers the opportunity to network with manufacturing companies such as Talu, Zevigas, Bozkurt, Bilce Tekstil, Gelişim, Karar, Akademi, Bozpaor Demezoğlu. These international manufacturers provide insight into their performance profile in terms of production, delivery times, etc.
The manufacturing sector is an important branch of the economy for the industry, over 80% of the companies in Türkiye are active in this sector. Many competitive advantages result from production in Türkiye, such as short delivery times, the possibility of small minimum order quantities, high production quality, young and well-trained employees. However, Türkiye also has a lively and creative design scene and high-quality fashion brands that are redefining the image of "Made in Türkiye". IFCO brings these brands to the stage and puts the Turkish fashion world in a new light.

The program offers seminars and lectures. The special focus is on the topic of sustainability, which is curated by Ekoteks Laboratorium, the association's sustainability institute. Accademia de la Moda and WGSN give latest trend information. Up to ten shows will take place on the catwalk in the Fashion Show Center, including presentations showcasing their latest collections.

In combination with Texhibition, the trade fair for fabrics, trimmings and yarns, which takes place from March 8th to 10th, 2023 in the Istanbul Exhibition Center, ITKIB / IHKIB offers with IFCO the complete offer for the international textile industry and trade.

The declared goal of the organizers is to offer a "one-stop shopping solution" with IFCO that shows the creativity of the Turkish fashion scene, enables access to new sales markets and at the same time establishes the connection to potential production partners for supply chain optimization. The competitive advantages of production in Türkiye are evident:
short delivery times, high production quality, young and well-trained employees, the possibility of small minimum order quantities, a vertical textile and clothing industry that allows "one-stop shopping".

The manufacturing sector is an important sector for the industry, with over 80% of companies in Türkiye engaged in this sector. Türkiye has the fastest economic growth among the G20 after Saudi Arabia at 7.6% year-on-year in the second quarter of 2022, according to the Turkish Statistics Authority. Export is one of the most important pillars of growth.

The trade fair concept is being supported by the government with several programs. These include the cooperation with IMA, Istanbul ModaAkademisi, which regularly produces design talents becoming an integral part of the international fashion scene. IMA was founded in 2007 by ITKIB / IHKIB with the help of the IPA I program ((IPA: Instrument for Pre Accession Funds, provided by the EU for the EU candidate countries). Young design talents are brought to the stage at IFCO in cooperation with the ‘’Koza Young Fashion Designers Contest’’.

Turkey is seeing record figures in garment exports, one of the four engines of Turkey's industry with the EU as the largest export market. In 2021 alone it shows an increase of almost 20% compared to 2020. The momentum in Turkey's industry has been accelerated by the pandemic. Delivery bottlenecks could be bridged and near shoring becomes a competitive advantage.

With Istanbul Fashion Connection, the Istanbul Ready-to-Wear and Apparel Exporters' Association (IHKIB) in cooperation with the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce is launching an international fashion platform with a biannual rhythm for Turkish and international manufacturers. The next event will take place from August 24th to 26th, 2022.

Eine der größten Herausforderungen für Industrie und Handel in der Modeindustrie sind momentan nicht funktionierende Lieferketten, mit entsprechenden Konsequenzen für die Modebranche. Lieferstörungen werden zum größten Kostentreiber, wie eine aktuelle McKinsey-Studie zeigt. Nearshoring nimmt eine Schlüsselfunktion ein, Geschwindigkeit und Flexibilität in der Beschaffung sind zentrale Wettbewerbsfaktoren. Über 70% der befragten Sourcing-Verantwortlichen planen, bis 2025 ihren Einkauf aus nah gelegenen Ländern zu erhöhen. Die Türkei gehört hierbei zu einem der interessantesten Beschaffungsstandorte, sie ist zum ersten Mal in den Top 3. Das Land liegt strategisch günstig zwischen Europa und Asien und die Türkei ist Mitglied der EU-Zoll-Union.

Themen wie digitale Transformation, Smart Clothing, technische Textilien und Sustainability stehen im Fokus der Seminare und Workshops auf der Istanbul Fashion Connection. Trend Zonen und Modenschauen informieren über aktuelle Trends.

Für Besucher bietet IHKIB ein attraktives Einladungsprogramm inklusive Unterkunft und Transfer an.
