Mathias Layher – Bitzer
Director Sales AC and Process

“We are manufacturer of air conditioning and refrigeration compressors. This year is our second time to have an own booth. For us it’s very important to be at SODEX fair mainly because more and more OEM costumers are based in Turkey and of course not only supplying the Turkish market but also the surrounding. So, we find it very helpful to meet costumers at SODEX not only from Turkey but also from Syria, Lebanon, other Middle East countries, also Northern Africa countries. It is a very good show so far for us and we have a lot of contacts, we also meet a lot of costumers who also displaying here. Overall, we engaged with our costumers too throughout the whole days.

We will be here again in 2021 in Istanbul at SODEX and we are looking forwarding to welcoming you at our booth and of course meeting you there.”

Zeki Özen – Daikin
Member of Board

“We are happy to participate in ISK-SODEX 2019. Foreign visitors from more than 130 countries visited B2B meetings organized by Turkish HVAC&R Exporters Association (ISIB) and SODEX. In the first evening of the exhibition, we had B2B meetings which I believe to be really beneficial to Turkey. We extend our gratitude to SODEX and ISIB for their contribution. As Daikin, we are here to support this contribution to the industry in Turkey this year. As what we have understood from the events during two days, this is a well-promoted exhibition and the profiles of exhibitors are very high. It will hopefully be useful for the entire industry. It is very important also for Turkey. We invite investors and traders to Turkey to turn it into a hub for Balkans, Middle East and Turkic Republics. B2B meetings are still ongoing on this matter which we hope that we will be successful. I would like to once again extent my gratitude to SODEX and ISIB.”

Faik Tellioğlu – Tyco
General Manager

“SODEX is one of the most valuable exhibitions for us, in which we have participated for 16-17 years in a row. While we do not participate in every exhibition or every small event, we do our best to take part in this exhibition. Because it is a great opportunity for us to meet local and international customers, mostly from far away. We have welcomed some visitors from Oman, which we have not ever got in touch, and we had the chance to talk with them. We have also met dealers from Azerbaijan and some African countries. We have established several potential business contacts. This is an exhibition, which we attach a great importance to and is a very important meeting point for the industry. It is also of essence that different industries apart from the fire management are present at the exhibition since we have the chance to meet potential customers whose target was not our company, but who visit other companies from air-conditioning, heating and cooling industries. This year, the exhibition slightly exceeds our expectations. We had a positively busy time since the first day, which makes us really content. We are happy with the interest in the exhibition. My team is also here. At our booth, there is a very crowded team consisting of around 20 people. However, we sometimes cannot suffice to our visitors. I hope that the results of the exhibition will also be positive for everyone. Thank you.”
