Great Involvement of Turkey in World Arena

Ms. Sermin Cengiz, UBM Rotaforte Managing Director stated that the sector in Turkey is currently planning a target of USD 5 Billion worth of exports in the coming 3 years, putting that in mind we realize that Istanbul Jewelry Show plays an important role in contributing to that target. Buyers from the Middle East are heading for Turkey instead of Dubai says Sermin Cengiz; "The show creates a meeting point that ranks high on the agenda of every professional in the sector and we feel proud for organizing this event for the 37th time. We organize this fair twice a year and I am comfortable to say that our October fair has become a brand just like our March edition. Compared to last year we achieved a growth of 50%. The Istanbul Jewelry Show provides an opportunity for participants and visitors to witness the latest developments in the sector and we believe that carries a great significance for Turkey which is planning to be the world's biggest jewelry producer. This awareness is increasing our responsibilities towards the sector every passing day. The currently 2 billion dollar exporting sector is planning a 5 billion dollar export target in the coming 3 years, putting that in mind, Istanbul Jewelry Show's role cannot be underestimated I believe."

Mr Ayhan Guner, the Chairman of Jewellery Exporters' Association expressed his views as follows: "The 37th Istanbul Jewelry Show is a point where the sector meets buyers at the international platform and this offers unique opportunities to participating companies. Through its geographical advantage and unique beauty, Istanbul has become the most important meeting point of the sector in the region. I think the fair carries special importance in achieving our export objective and presenting our handicrafts and branding developments to the entire world. As the sector grows, the fair is growing and transforming into a world class event in the eyes of the participants and the visitors and as the Jewellery Exporters Association we feel happy and wish the sector a pleasant and successful fair."
