ISTANBUL—The 24th running of Evteks in Istanbul has new show dates of April 24-28 according to Istanbul Trade Fairs, a division of CNR Expo, the show organizer.

The reason for the new dates had to do with the fact that Ramadan starts the 15th of May this year and the old show dates would have conflicted with this important holiday.

Evteks was always held about two weeks after Proposte in Como, Italy but this time, Evteks will be held one week prior to Proposte May 2-4, 2018.

This may give international visitors a chance to cover both events because the flight from Istanbul to Italy is only

2 hours and 35 minutes. As part of the festivities, Evteks has hired Nelly Rodi™, the international fashion trend forecaster to introduce the 2019 design trends during the Evteks Fair.

By including Nelly Rodi as the keynote speaker covering fashion trends and by pre-empting the Proposte dates by one week, the Evteks Organizers are injecting a new fashion awareness to the Turkish Show that wasn’t as obvious in prior years.
