MEDEX 2018

International Trade Fair for Woodworking and Woodprocessing, Materials and Accessories

In Tehran from July 10th to 13th 2018

Iran Flaggen

MEDEX will have its premiere event presented at the Permanent Fair Ground in Tehran from July 10th to 13th 2018 in partnership with Deutsche Messe.

Why exporting into Iran right now?

Good reasons, why exhibiting will pay off:

  • Very good economic growth (12 % in 2017)
  • Very good political and economical relationships between Berlin and Tehran
  • Increasing furnishing needs of the young population and of the wealthy and increasing middle class
  • Lack of supplier products for the growing Iranian furniture industry
  • Promising figures: September – November 2017 solely Germany exported stationary woodworking machines in the total value of 2,6 Mio. Euro into Iran, an increase of exports of 216 % in the comparison to the prior year
  • With our cooperation with Kühne & Nagel, an Iran-experienced trade fair transport company you will be supported professionally while importing your exhibition goods
  • German products have a very good reputation in Iran
  • Professional organisation and support of your trade fair preparation as usual together with the contacts of DMAG
