The first Asia International Dye Industry, Pigments and Textile Chemicals Exhibition – known as Interdye Asia – is set to be held in Turkey’s Istanbul Expo Center on 11-14 October.

The show is an international extension of China Interdye, which organisers said had established itself as the largest professional exhibition for the global dye-chemical industry over the last 12 years.

The move to Turkey follows the first of the organisers’ Asian tours last December, an event held in Ahmedabad, India.

More than 60 companies from Germany, Turkey, India, mainland China and Taiwan are set to attend the event, which will be held simultaneously with the Turkey Chemicals Exhibition in the same venue.
