Izmir International Fair - The oldest surviving fair in Turkey


(Worldkings.org) The Izmir International Fair (Turkish: İzmir Enternasyonal Fuarı) is the oldest tradeshow in Turkey, and is considered the cradle of Turkey's fairs and expositions industry. The fair, which is not limited to a theme, is notable for hosting a series of simultaneous festival activities.


The first Izmir International Fair was held in 1936 in the Kulturpark area, which was devastated in the Big Fire of Izmir. Over the years, the fair has evolved and expanded, with each year highlighting a specific field of activity, a country, and a Turkish province. For example, the 2006 fair had organic farming and renewable energy sources as main themes.
