OIC Helal Expo Istanbul

| International Halal Food & Healthy Products Fair

The OIC Halal Expo is a leading international trade fair specializing in products and services that comply with the halal regulations of traditional Islamic law. Serving as a platform for experts, traders, and entrepreneurs from the global halal industry, it offers a comprehensive overview of the variety of halal-certified goods. The acronym "OIC" in the name of the fair stands for "Organization of Islamic Cooperation," an influential intergovernmental organization that promotes cooperation across various economic sectors, including the halal sector..

The event takes place at the Istanbul Expo Center, one of Istanbul's most eminent exhibition and convention centers. The fair is biennial, strategically scheduled to align with the business cycles of the participating industries.

The fair is organized by Discover Events Uluslararası Fuar Organizasyonları A.Ş., a company specializing in international fairs and exhibitions.

Key topics at the OIC Halal Expo include halal food and beverages, their processing and packaging, HORECA (Hotel-Restaurant-Café), organic and traditional products, cosmetics and personal care products, as well as pharmaceuticals. It also covers areas such as Islamic financial services, media, public institutions, halal certification, education, halal tourism and accommodation, health tourism, textiles, as well as authentic and cultural clothing.

The OIC Halal Expo fosters a special connection with Istanbul and Turkey, a country known for its long history in trade and its strategic position as a bridge between continents. The fair not only contributes to the local economy but also positions Istanbul as a central hub for the halal industry.

A particular highlight of the OIC Halal Expo includes associated conferences and the World Halal Summit, where leading suppliers and industry experts gather to discuss the latest trends and exchange knowledge.

Exhibitors range from food production to cosmetics, fashion, financial services, and educational institutions.

The main audience for the fair includes buyers, manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, retailers, and investors. In addition, it attracts academics, chefs, and media representatives.

In conclusion, the Istanbul Expo Center stands out not just for its excellent accessibility and modern facilities as the venue for the OIC Halal Expo but also for its central location in Istanbul. This makes it easily accessible by public transport as well as by car, making it an ideal location for an event of international scale and significance.

The OIC Helal Expo takes place biennially, and therefore for the 10th time previsibly in November 2025 in Istanbul.
