logitrans 2017 in Istanbul
The ifm Istanbul Expo Center will once again be the focal point for the logistics sector on 15 – 17 November 2017. The logitrans will offer decision-makers from the Eurasian region a forum for making contacts and maintaining existing business relations in the region for the 11th time – even in difficult times.
"Using the logitrans, we’ve created a platform to promote the establishment of logistics networks between Asia and Europe. The excellent figures from the previous year and developments in terms of the registrations for the coming logitrans demonstrate how important it is for companies to remain in close contact, even in economically difficult times,” says Gerhard Gerritzen, member of the management team at Messe München GmbH. “This exhibition is an essential meeting point in order to continue developing business relations between Turkey and Europe.”
In addition to maintaining contacts, the sharing of knowledge is a focal point again this year. The conference program, which will provide detailed information on the most important trends in this rapidly changing region and continue for all three days, will be devoted to this process. One of the major trends includes the issue of how huge amounts of existing data can be made usable for companies in the most efficient manner.
Turkey not only stands out as a result of its excellent geographical location, but particularly through its major investments in the field of infrastructure. Two major projects involving the third bridge over the Bosporus and the new airport are being completed in a very short time in Istanbul alone. Then there is the privatization of state ports and railway networks and the establishment of a network of logistics hubs all over the country. The volume of investments in railway traffic has been enhanced to the equivalent of almost EUR 8 billion during the last 14 years.
The factors mentioned here open up many opportunities for international logistics specialists too. “The logitrans represents an important marketing platform. It’s not just about gaining access to the Turkish market, but contact with the neighboring countries plays an important role too,” says Lars Günsel from the Logistics Alliance Germany, emphasizing his point. Georg Karabaczek, the Austrian Business Delegate for Turkey, adds, “The field of logistics is an important sector for Austrian companies too and Turkey is a significant market. The exhibition brings together the representatives of important logistics specialists and is an excellent opportunity to establish contacts as the number of visitors attending continues to rise.”
