National and international associations support leading maritime exhibition in Turkey
Europort Istanbul is organised for the 12th time by Ahoy Rotterdam and NTSR International Exhibition and Congress Organisers from 20 until 23 March 2013. The leading maritime exhibition in Turkey has an exclusive cooperation with IMEAK DTO Turkish Chamber of Shipping. On top of that, many domestic and international stakeholders support the exhibition, which underlines the A-status of Europort Istanbul as the leading maritime meeting place in Turkey.
GISBIR (Turkish Shipbuilders' Association), GESAD Association of Ship Industrialists, UMA (Turkish Under Secretariat of Maritime Affairs) and KOSGEB (Small and Medium Enterprises Development Organisation) are important domestic stakeholders. They all issued their full official support to Europort Istanbul. Furthermore, powerful international maritime trade associations such as ANCONAV (Romania), BEPA (South Korea), DMG (Denmark), Gican (France), HME (The Netherlands), KITA (South Korea) and NME (Norway) actively support Europort Istanbul.
Europort Istanbul takes place in Hall 9, Hall 10 and the Foyer (Hall 11) of the Istanbul Expo Centre. Already well over 75% of the available exhibition space has been applied for. The broad interest for the exhibition is reflected in the participation of Turkish as well as international companies. In total Europort Istanbul will host some 300 exhibitors representing 700 brands from over 35 countries.
