The Bilateral Negotiations of the ISK-SODEX, which is supported by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Trade and the Turkish HVAC&R Exporters Association (ISIB), will be held in the Area B2B of Hall 13 on October 2–3.

Noting that the Turkish air conditioning industry has achieved a considerable competitive advantage in foreign markets, Hannover Messe Sodeks Fuarcılık General Manager Alexander Kühnel stated that investors were much more willing to invest in Turkey, saying: “The air conditioning industry is a significant exporting industry of Turkey and continues to set new growth records each year. Our focus on R&D-intensive high-tech products in recent years have given us a competitive edge, particularly in foreign markets, which is also noticed by foreign investors. The number of investors willing to cooperate with the leading manufacturers of the Turkish air conditioning industry is rising rapidly. To capitalize on this growing interest, we are working to increase the trade volume in markets that offer a higher export volume for the air conditioning industry as well as new markets with a low export volume. This is part of our activities for the ISK-SODEX, which we are undertaking alongside industry representatives. It is very important for the ISK-SODEX, a leading brand in its field in Turkey and Eurasia, to realize its potential and unite the industry with the target markets.”
