Following a lacklustre January event, the IDF, Istanbul leather fair which was supposed to be organised for June 2005 has been postponed until January 2006. The recent show, the second edition of the fair, reflected the difficulties of the industry and both exhibitor and visitor numbers were reported as being down.

With the previous cancellation of Leather Days (ILD) and Golden Horn, scheduled for December 2004, there is little good news coming out of Türkiye at the moment.
