In the past couple of years, dozens of high-quality Iranian handicrafts have been honored with UNESCO seals of excellence.
Concurrent with the event, the 28th edition of Iran Handmade Carpet Exhibition, as a unique event in the field of Persian handmade carpet, will also be held at the fairground.
Iran National Carpet Center, as the sponsor and organizer of this important event, will provide special facilities and options for foreign businessmen who are active in the handmade carpet sector.
A number of business and trade delegations from various countries are expected to visit the exhibition and hold trade talks with Iranian producers and exporters of handwoven carpets.
