Whether or not taking a “selfie” by the Blue Mosque is still the trend there is no doubt in our mind that exploring business opportunities in Turkey should be on your “What’s Hot” list. That’s why we’re organising a UK Pavilion at the inaugural Chemspec Eurasia, 9-10 September.

The pavilion package offers UK companies an easy, cost-effective way to raise their profile to potential customers in Turkey and surrounding countries….all for under £2,000!

Did you know that Istanbul’s economy alone is larger than the collective economies of 12 EU countries? OECD figures also see Turkey as the fastest growing country in the world by 2018! The diversity of industry is incredible with top manufacturing rankings in Europe and globally including commercial vehicle & bus, pharmaceuticals, mega-yacht & shipbuilding, ready-to-wear clothing as well as huge investment in construction, energy exploration & production operations, healthcare and communications

The chemical industry is a key component of the Turkish economy with key chemical manufacturing sub-sectors in detergents, cosmetics and personal care; paints and coatings; fertilizers and pesticides, plastics; rubber and inorganic chemicals. Turkey’s main value proposition for all of these sub-sectors being the sustainability of growth in their customer industries. Their chemical management policies are also aligning with the EU. Companies wishing to export to Turkey should be aware of the CICR, CLP, SDS, Hazardous Materials regulations and the more recent KKDIK.

Visit our Chemspec Eurasia webpage for additional info about the Turkish economy and guidance for UK companies on how to do business there plus the Deloitte Turkey 2014 report on the Turkish chemical industry.

With such a dynamic market within 4 hours flight time don’t turn to stone and end up like Medusa’s topsy turvy head in the Basilica Cistern, raise your sensible head above the parapet and join us on the UK Pavilion.
