The meeting started with Mr. Mohammadreza Rashtizadeh, the head of Qom Carpet Employers Association, mentioned that the correct sales model should be implemented in the association's booth, and the handwoven carpet market should be transparent. Manufacturers should also specify their price policy. He added that people who want to have the association's symbol in their booths should display their rugs on the association's website at a certain price and present their carpets at the exhibition at the same price. Also, he considered the current market situation to be 3 important factors, which are as follows.
- Failure to invest and maintain the value of the carpet
- Consumer uncertainty
- Lack of transparency of carpet value for consumers
Mr. Soheil Bigdeli, the treasurer of Qom Handwoven Carpet Employers Association, said that the purpose of the association is to introduce itself to people and recruit members, and added that most producers auction their rugs in the exhibition due to financial problems, and this situation is very deplorable.
