Emphasizing the importance of participating in the Building Fair , EVINMA Human Resources Manager Sebahattin Duran said, "Building Fair-Turkeybuild Istanbul plays a very important role in the sector. Last year was pretty good when we assessed it in terms of number of participants and visitors. Since the leading companies of the sector are also on this platform, there is a great demand for the fair. We've met a lot of new clients. Our first goal here was to introduce ourselves to the market. Over the years, the fair has become a platform for us to reach both domestic and foreign customers much faster; that's why we attend the Building Fair-Turkeybuild Istanbul almost every year. We met many of our important customers at home and abroad at this fair. This year we will add bathroom and kitchen furniture to this selection, which we started production about five months ago. We will participate in The Building Fair 2019 with a much larger stand."

Building Fair – Turkeybuild Istanbul has been guiding the development of the sector for 42 years!

Kemal Ulgen, Regional Director of ITE Turkey, who stated that for 42 years, Building Fair-Turkeybuild Istanbul has mirrored the construction sector of our country as an international platform; We are organizing the Building Fair for the 42nd time this year, which has succeeded in being one of the 5 largest fairs of the sector in the world. Noting that the construction sector, which has been seeing fluctuations for some time, is expected to be in a stabilization process this year, Ulgen said, "In 2019, exports appear to be an important way out. Construction materials exports are projected to increase by 7-8% and approach $23 billion. Opportunities in export markets for all sub-sector groups are expected to improve. In the domestic market, unlike other years, two more developments are expected. One is the movement of the regeneration market with the decrease in demand for new construction works, and the other is the increase in supply from the domestic market due to the limitation of foreign exchange rates on imports. In the midst of all this transformation, the heart of the construction industry is beating at The Building Fair-Turkeybuild Istanbul. Companies that want to meet with thousands of domestic and international professional visitors and purchasing officials to seize export opportunities and meet with potential customers take their place at the meeting point of the sector."
