Turkish Automobile Industry Exporters Association Hosts Virtual Exhibition
The Turkish Automobile Industry Exporters Association (OİB) continues its virtual events with the aim of increasing export opportunities and value-added business relationships. OİB is organizing the second version of Auto Expo Turkey, which was the first 3-D virtual automobile exhibition organized through the coordination of the Assembly of Turkish Exporters (TİM) and with the support of Automechanika İstanbul. Through the Auto Expo Turkey virtual exhibition in North and South America, OİB aims to open the doors of new export markets for its members and increase the existing export potential following the Covid pandemic- 19.
A total of 58 Turkish companies are participating in the exhibition in which many visitors from all over the world will be welcomed, and in particular automotive companies from North and South America. A wide range of promotional activities will be carried out by leading Turkish automotive companies and suppliers in 3D booths, including advertising videos, catalog brochures and 2D and 3D product photos. Companies will communicate with visitors to the exhibition via video calls and message platforms.
The Turkish automotive industry ranks 4th in automotive production in Europe at the end of 2020. With particular reference to the markets of Germany, France, England, Italy and Spain , $ 25.5 billion in exports are made through trading activity with hundreds of countries on an annual basis. In Turkey, where 1.3 million vehicles are produced each year, more than 200 foreign auto investors are active.
Baran Celik, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the OİB, drew attention to the fact that they are maintaining their activities without interruption to catch up with the export figures before the pandemic. Mr. Celik said: “We will promote the Turkish automotive industry to automotive companies around the world through the three-dimensional AutoExpo Turkiye virtual exhibition, the first we held last year. As part of the exhibition program, we plan to collaborate our promotional activities with webinar events regarding the Turkish automotive industry and the general economic situation, which will be attended by industry experts. We are planning to organize the third AutoExpo Turkiye virtual exhibition geared towards the European continent, to be held in June 2021 ”.
