The third staging of TOS+H Expo, Turkish Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition, in Istanbul, confirmed its position as Turkey’s leading platform for this sector. A total of 5,034 trade visitors from 50 countries attended and the 119 exhibiting companies reported that their high expectations were met. The trade fair was in an excellent position due to the ever-increasing global importance of personal protection, operational safety and a healthy workplace. The IX. International Occupational Health and Safety Congress was held concurrently.

TOS+H Expo was organized by Messe Düsseldorf together with the local trade fair company Tezulas Fuar. Messe Düsseldorf is renowned as the organizer of A+A, the world’s leading trade fair for health and safety held in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“It is 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 neighboring countries,” said Birgit Horn, Global Head of Occupational Safety & Health at Messe Düsseldorf. “This combination has proven valuable again. It’s been a high-caliber convention with inspiring talks and in-depth 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.”

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 organized environment.”

  TOS+H Expo will return to Istanbul in May 2020. For further information on visiting or exhibiting at TOS+H 2020, contact Messe Düsseldorf North America, 150 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 2920, Chicago, IL 60601. Telephone: (312) 781-5180; Fax: (312) 781-5188; E-mail:; Visit and
