Excellent atmosphere at 3rd TOS+H Expo in Istanbul

It’s the individual that counts – Excellent atmosphere at 3rd TOS+H Expo in Istanbul

The 119 companies that took part in the third edition of Turkey’s leading platform in occupational health and safety, TOS+H Expo, arrived in Istanbul with great expectations. The trade fair was in an excellent position due to the ever-increasing global importance of personal protection, operational safety and a healthy workplace. This was combined with a good opportunity for exhibitors to target a professional Turkish audience with the latest trends and products in industrial safety, health promotion at work and operational safety management. The high expectations on the Turkish Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition were fully met on all four days of the trade fair, from 6 to 9 May. Held in parallel with the IX. International Occupational Safety and Health Congress, the 3rd TOS+H Expo attracted 5,034 trade visitors from 50 countries. It took place at the Halic Congress Center and was of an extremely high standard.

“It’s remarkable how the TOS+H Expo has developed since its première in 2014. It’s been steadily growing and clearly asserting its significance as a leading platform for the industry, both in Turkey and in its neighbouring countries,” says Birgit Horn, Global Head of Occupational Safety & Health at Messe Düsseldorf, who was clearly pleased at the excellent atmosphere. “This combination has proved its worth once again,” she sums up. “It’s been a high-calibre convention with inspiring talks and intensive discussions, on the one hand, coupled with a comprehensive overview of innovative products, equipment and services at the trade fair, on the other. We are proud to be sending clear signals in the market. We're giving a lead, both in Turkey and beyond, on the element that matters most: the individual.”

The 3rd TOS+H Expo was opened by the Turkish Minister of Labour, Jülide Sarıeroğlu, and the IX. International Occupational Safety and Health Congress by the Prime Minister, Binali Yıldırım. This emphatically underlined the major significance of this close combination of events.

Speaking for many exhibitors, Gerald Haas, Sales Manager Europe II at UVEX Safety, summed up the atmosphere at the stands: “Once again, TOS+H Expo has proved to be the leading event on occupational health and safety in a dynamic Turkish market. It's a place where important decision-makers were able to meet in a well organised environment.”

TOS+H Expo is held by Messe Düsseldorf, who also organises A+A, the world’s leading trade fair on health and safety in Düsseldorf, together with the local trade fair company Tezulas Fuar.
