Levent Aydin, Board Member of ISIB, TURKISH HVAC-R EXPORTERS SOCIETY
The Turkish HVAC&R Exporters Union (ISIB) was founded 13 years ago in Turkey. Presently we have 2500 members and are a state institution of the Republic of Turkey. Our range includes heating, drainage, ventilation, installation and insulation sectors. Azerbaijan is one of the most important markets for us, my company has been working here for many years.
Today, our organisation consists of 13 Turkish companies that came to the exhibition. However, in the coming years, we are planning to increase this number by expanding worldwide activities. Turkey is one of the world's manufacturing bases in our sector. For example, the American company "Carrier", the German company "Bosch" have their industrial enterprises in Turkey.
I believe that exhibitions are the most important tool for the development of bilateral relations. Presently there are many different channels in the field of promotion and marketing in the world - especially after the pandemic period. We have witnessed the importance of digitalization of business relations, digital marketing and digital intelligence. During the pandemic, almost all of our companies worked remotely from home. However, from the point of view of strengthening mutual relations, the exhibitions carry out an important mediating mission. We have come to Baku with the Union of Turkish Exporters for the second year already. I believe we will be participating in this event in the future.
