As of 2018 November, the HVAC&R sector that includes the air-conditioning systems, insulation components, installations and equipment and heating and cooling systems has witnessed a boost in exports in the first 11 months by 17.5 per cent as compared to the same period of 2017 and reached a total export value of USD 4.2 billion. Having increased its cooperation in strategic markets like the USA, Canada, India, Germany, Russia and the United Arab Emirates, the sector is now looking forward to the ISK-SODEX fair which is an opportunity to meet international buyers in between 2 – 5 October 2019 at Istanbul. ISK-SODEX Istanbul is the first and most important fair in HVAC&R industry and the companies will be presenting their latest products at the TÜYAP Fair and Exhibition Center.

With the International Buyers Delegation Program to be organised within the scope of this fair, the largest companies and unions of these markets will be coming together in Istanbul.

Emphasising that the air-conditioning sector has a significant export potential in the Turkish industry and is breaking new records in exports every year, Alexander Kühnel, the General Manager of Hannover Messe Sodeks said, “The sector has a significant competitive power in the foreign markets and it is very important that it demonstrates this potential in an international fair. Our ISK-SODEX fair hosted important buyer groups from 105 countries in February 2018. In this scope, our target this year is to increase the number of buyers visiting our fair from these existing countries and also to attract new visitors to our ISK-SODEX fair from new markets where our export potential is high but export volume is low so that they can meet our sector representatives.”

“In this context, regions and countries such as Pakistan, West Africa and Tanzania are among the main new markets with which we have been establishing close relations. Furthermore, we know that the African and the South American countries are very important for the Turkish exporters. We are continuing to shape all promotion and communication activities of ISK-SODEX in line with the 2019 export roadmap and expectations of the sector. We will be realising supporting programs showing the advantages of the sector and will be providing new opportunities for the participants and visitors to meet, network and to exchange information and experiences during our ISK SODEX fair which will be realised on 2 – 5 October 2019.”

For ISK-SODEX fair, 33 thousand square meter exhibition area has already been sold. There are participants from Germany, China, France, India, the Netherlands, Italy, South Korea and Thailand. This year domestic and foreign companies will have the opportunity to present in the fair their wide range of new trend products and services such as heating, cooling, air-conditioning, ventilation, insulation, pumps, valves, installation, water treatment, fire systems and solar energy systems.
