From May 8-10, Temel Gaskets attended Automechanika Dubai 2016 at the Dubai World Trade Center. The trade show attracted over 2,000 exhibitors from 58 different countries and 30,000+ attendees. While at the show, we exhibited at our booth, where we enjoyed meeting attendees and making new business connections. We had great traffic to our booth from countries including Germany, France, the UK, Brazil, Argentina, Poland, the US, and the UAE. We also experienced positive results from our recent marketing efforts.
The successful execution of Automechanika Dubai would not have been possible without the efficiency and attention to detail by the show organizers and contributing organizations. The national participation for Turkey was organized by the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce (ITO), an organization that keeps track of commercial transactions and records from Istanbul based commercial companies. Originally founded in 1876, the organization has over a century of experience regulating business in the Turkish region. As one of the world’s largest Chambers of Commerce, the Istanbul division has 350,000 registered members. The members are divided into specially categorized committees based on their company’s industry. This is the first time the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce organized Turkey’s participation in this trade show.
Recently, the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce has taken on new projects to enrich the business environment in Turkey and overall scope of Turkish Influence. One of their education oriented projects involved the establishment of Istanbul Commerce University, which has 3,860 undergraduate students and 412 postgraduate students pursuing degrees in one or more of the 5 faculty departments. The organization has also opened a total of 14 primary and secondary schools in Turkey, which includes an educational center for autistic children. The group is also working with the US Chamber of Commerce to improve trade between the United States and Turkey. The Istanbul Chamber of Commerce has taken interest in the development of the Gulf region, as partners for construction projects in Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. This year, Turkey was the official country partner of Automechanika Dubai.
