There were many round tables in which the experts exchanged ideas on how we can preserve the culture of rug making in the tribes. Many weavers exhibited the art of tribal carpet weaving on their horizontal looms.

According to IranMania the director of the National Carpet Center, Morteza Faraji referred to the positive impact of such exhibits and said that the carpet industry should be viewed from various perspectives including safeguarding cultural heritage, economy, job generating and preventing migration to cities.
