The 36th edition of the WoodTech Fair meets the expectations of the industry
In its 36th year, the fair aims to meet all the expectations of industry, bringing together the important components of the woodworking technologies sector. Visitors from various countries, including especially countries in the Middle East, Europe, the Balkans, North Africa, the Eurasia as well as Russia, booked their places at the fair.
An ever-increasing target of growth
RX Tüyap General Manager Berkan Öner states that the WoodTech Fair has begun with immediate success to celebrate its 36th year with a record high growth of 30% and explains "This year marks the first time that we are holding the fair as the sole organizer. Our initial observations show that we are already reaping the benefits of this decision. A large number of domestic and foreign businesspeople are attending the thirty sixth edition of the fair which has opened its doors across 10 halls with a 30% growth compared to the previous year. We expect that the added trade volume of the purchasing committees from foreign countries will give a significant boost to the woodworking industry's export figures. I'd like to emphasize that we are holding one of the most efficient fairs in the Eurasia region and achieving even higher growth targets every year in terms of the number of visitors and exhibitors. I hope that the fair be productive to the entire industry and would like to thank AİMSAD, EUMABOIS and all our stakeholders".
Great excitement: WoodTech is now stronger than ever as a standalone event
This represents the first year in which the WoodTech Fair, which is the largest gathering event of the woodworking machinery industry, is being held as a standalone event on its own date. İsmet Toktaş, Chairman of the Board of Directors of AİMSAD, explains this decision: "WoodTech is one of Türkiye's most renowned and long-running fairs. However, as we all know, the companies couldn't find spaces to exhibit at our fair, which ran concurrently with the Intermob expo. As AİMSAD, we often received feedback and suggestions from our members during both the fair and other occasions on how to resolve certain problems with the fair. We engaged with RX Tüyap to let them know that we wanted the fairs to be held as separate, independent events. Following extensive, mutual conversations, RX Tüyap confirmed this perspective, and we agreed to host this year's event independently, which is highly significant for our business, based on shared ideas. All AIMSAD member companies are looking forward to the WoodTech Fair, which will take place on October 19-23. I believe that this fair, for which we are all prepared with all our devotion, will be a huge success."
