You and your team have great contributions in transforming the Bursa Textile Show into its cur- rent position, which is an important platform for exhibiting the perfect qual- ity and design of Turkish textile in Bursa, the capital of the textile sector. What would you like to say about the added value that Bursa Textile Show brings to Bur- sa and Turkish textile?
Bursa Textile Show really suits Bursa. Bursa is a textile city be- cause of the textile history in the city traces back to very long dates. When we came to office in Btso, you know, we were aiming to bring new generation fairs to Bursa. Back in those days, new generation fairs were one of our sixteen macro projects. We predicted that a textile fair would be suitable for Bursa, the textile city because Bursa Textile companies were generally the lead- ing actors in all textile fairs in the world. Our task was hard, but we knew the potential.We started with the P&D project. We established the first Textile P&D in Bursa. P & D, which we had trouble finding com- panies at first, was doubled by our achivements. As Burteks, we started with purchasing committees as B2B organization. We had our first activity with 49 companies about three years ago by making one-to-one meet- ings with friends who participated in international fairs in the sector and by convincing our companies.
As Bursa Tekstil Show, we have brought our fair to a fair concept for the last two years Today, the most important textile fair of our region has been brought to Bursa. Bursa deserves more than that as a textile city. I would like to thank all the peo- ple who contributed to this effort, mainly the workers who worked re- ally hard and our friends who worked with dedication by taking part in the fair commission.
