Participation by international exhibitors in R+T Turkey
Buyers from the roller shutter, sun protection and door/gate industry will be able to obtain information in Istanbul from 1 to 4 March 2017 - Turkish construction industry continuing to grow.
More than 100 exhibitors will then present innovations, products and new technologies in the areas of roller shutters, doors/gates and sun protection systems for the construction industry. These exhibitors will include internationally well-known industry representatives from Turkey and Europe, e.g. Monte Carlo Tente, ICA, Medo Tente, Bariş Tente, Brillant, Serge Ferrari, Expalum and Nice.
Anyone with a special interest in the latest developments in the German industry will be in the right place in the official German Pavilion for which ten German companies have registered. A representative of the Federal Association for Manufacturers of Roller Shutters and Sun Protection Systems (BVRS) will accompany the exhibitor delegation and will be able to provide interested trade visitors with information at first hand about current developments in the industry. Participation in R+T Turkey will be financially supported by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) which regards the Turkish market as an important trading hub for German companies.
Misgivings among some of our international customers regarding the security situation are justified, but also do relate not solely to Istanbul. Roland Bleinroth, President of Messe Stuttgart: "We are very pleased that the 3rd edition of R+T Turkey is developing so positively and that our customers are supporting this important market platform, especially also in a slightly more difficult environment. This is appreciated, in particular, by our Turkish customers. Despite all the political instability, Turkey is and will remain an important economic area with a strong domestic market."
Online visitor registration for R+T Turkey 2017 has already started and can be accessed at: www.messe-stuttgart.com.tr/r+t/eng/Ziyaretci/ziyaretcikaydi.html. Other detailed information on the trade fair can also be found there.
R+T Turkey 2017 is not just aimed at visitors from Europe, it focuses primarily on Turkey's neighbouring countries, i.e. Iran, Greece and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as well as North African states, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. Buyers are mainly invited by Turkish attachés in these countries and regions. An application for financial assistance for the respective buyers delegations was also submitted to the Turkish Ministry of Economics. For trade fair visitors from Arab countries, R+T Turkey represents an important platform which is accessible without visa restrictions.
Due to its rapid economic growth over the last ten years, Turkey is regarded as one of the world's fastest expanding market. The Turkish government is pursuing ambitious economic objectives up to the centenary of the establishment of the Turkish Republic in 2023 and wants to become one of the world's largest economies by then. In order to attain this ambitious objective, an extensive catalogue of measures was drawn up within the framework of "Vision 2023".
Major building projects were instigated, support programmes for small and medium-sized enterprises were introduced, and innovative strategic plans were presented. During the trade fair exhibitors and visitors will be able to gain an overview of the market opportunities which are available in this up-and-coming economy.
