Category: Fairs and conferences

Don’t put off registering any longer for this once-in-a-lifetime experience in exciting Istanbul at the 11th ICOC, 19-22 April. If you have never been to this magical destination, this is the ultimate time to go. If you have, this visit will be like none before! For the first time, ICOC has been the catalyst in launching a costly and time-consuming program which will preserve these weavings for generations to come with the support of the Turkish Ministry of Culture. Hundreds of Turkey’s finest carpet and textile treasures from great museum collections have being especially selected and are now being washed and mounted in extensive conservation operations that are unequalled in the history of carpets. The extraordinary generosity of the Turkish Cultural Foundation and other individual contributors have made this possible. View beautiful specimens from rarely seen private collections. Book tours to Anatolia that are rapidly filling up. Stay where the action is at conference headquarters: the incomparable 5-star Swissotel Bosphorus where you will receive a favourably discounted room rate. This is an exceptional opportunity to enjoy Turkish hospitality, camaraderie, world-class rugs, art and architecture. We look forward to greeting you there…don’t miss it!
