We found the chance to be together with our visitors from local market, international target export countries and other Systemair plants and sales offices. ISK-SODEX 2016 is more effective than 2014 edition according the feedback I got from our evalutaion meetings with our team. We generally do not sell projects during Exhibitions but until that day we already sold 2 projects. Our plant is full now with Bilkent Hospital Project but we will increase the capacity and deal with that situtation. In that regard, we would like to thank to the valuable NGOs of the sector, to Deutsche Messe and Hannover Messe Sodeks Fuarcılık and we hope to reach to 2023 target of HVAC sector which is to increase to 25 billion dollars of exportation and to get a share from that target.”

Combi boilers, boilers, solar energy systems producers use circulator pumps. In that regard the most important speciality of ISK-SODEX is lots of visitors visit KBS in ISK-SODEX.”

“If I am to sum up my opinions on the fair, our expectations were mostly met. It is a fair that we have been attending since its foundation anyway, and we are one of the contributors to it for making it available in every two years. In this year’s fair we found the possibilities to realize our transactions, to see our business partners together and to host them and by means of those encounters, to promote our new products to them. We hope that the fair will continue to progressively happen in the upcoming years.”

It is a successful happening which is held in collaboration with Deutsche Messe by four associations and our foundation. This year we have attended to the fair as usual. We had the opportunity to promote our products by meeting our existing customers and potential new customers. According to my opinion the organization went pretty smooth. No big problem has occurred. We also talked to other participants and visitors. Everybody is satisfied with the fair and their performance this year. I know and believe that this success will pursue in the upcoming years. I present my thanks to everyone who has contributed.

We would like to keep our collaboration with ISK-SODEX in the next term.”

Erol Porsemay, Çelikpan, Sales & Marketing Manager

“We have been attending to ISK-SODEX fair for approximately eight years as Çelikpan Holding, as Warmhaus. So we aim to promote our new combi boilers Warmhaus to customers, distributors and and wholesalers. Therefore the fair has been quite beneficial for us in many aspects. We promote our new product Warmhaus to consumers, sellers and distributors. We took the chance and promoted both ourselves and our new brand Warmhaus; because in this fair it is possible to meet one hundred thousand, two hundred thousand, maybe even more people, hence we thought the best place to promote this brand was the fair.  We aim to promote our new products, hermetic devices and condensing new generation products called ERP, and also we aim to make them meet with the end users. Another really important matter in the ISK-SODEX fair for us as Warmhaus is that we want to meet with foreign visitors, foreign purchase decision makers. We aim to promote ourselves via ISK-SODEX in regions such as  Europe and Middle Africa and we are doing that now. One of the most important markets for us is Iran and under normal circumstances we will have sold these to Persian customers in ISK-SODEX fair. So our target for the fair is go get in touch with 30 countries and realize sales.”

Ufuk Atan, Demirdöküm, Satış Director

“Here our company has taken its place in the beautifully organized ISK-SODEX. As Demirdöküm we have been taking our place in the same booth in the biennial fair since 1997- I believe it was the first year the fair was held. We are more than satisfied. We are one of the leading brands in the industry and the main aims for us to be here is to meet new customers, to spend time with existing ones, to see them, and to get in touch with our friends,competitors, and to see the innovations.  I can say that we have met most of these aims in this year’s beautifully and successfully organized ISK-SODEX. For example there is a significant participation for export from countries such as Iran, Middle Africa, Jordan, and our friends have been making business meetings all the time. Of course we are a 62-year-old company as Demirdöküm and we have a lot of business partners, vendors, plumbers. Here we are all together, chitchatting, being happy. There is a significant attention towards our booth and that also makes us happy. I hope these fairs will continue and contribute to the export of our country. Every one of us should support these organizations. I thank all the participants. I thank the ISK-SODEX crew. It is a beautiful, significant organization, we are gonna make it better together, I believe it.”
