İZFAŞ (İzmir Fair Company) General Manager Canan Karaosmanoğlu Alıcı said that within the framework of pandemic rules after exhibitions can be held in closed areas after September 1, 2020.
Alıcı said, “The Ecology Exhibition, the only certified organic products fair in Turkey, will be preparing to open its doors for 11th time in April or May of 2021.”
Explaining that with the suggestions from their umbrella organizations, they are designing a unified hybrid fair next to the physical fair in the organic sector, which will be followed on the internet in October this year, Alıcı stated, “We are going to bring together the exhibition area on a digital platform where visitors can visit it in three dimensions. We believe that the hybrid fair, which will take place both physically and digitally, will lead İzmir in organic branding.”
“During this process, the roof organizations of the sector such as Izmir Chamber of Commerce, Izmir Commodity Exchange and Exporters’ Associations will come together and be part of this initiative to enable organic production to meet in the market. There is a support for participants in digital fair organization in the Presidential Decree,” Alıcı added.
“Our motto is to benefit from maximum incentives and reflect the minimum economic cost to companies. We want to benefit from all incentives. At the same time, we are on our agenda with Biofach, which is one of the biggest meetings of the world organic sector, which includes many sectors from food to cosmetics to textiles. We anticipate that the Biofach Fair will take place as of February,” Alıcı concluded…
