The decision to proceed is based on several factors, primarily the relative stability and positive forecasts of the Covid-19 situation in Turkey. Turkey has quickly adopted measures to help contain the spread of COVID-19 and therefore the Turkish government has allowed business events to proceed, provided that all measures to ensure health and safety are taken.
We would like to stress the fact that health and safety is very important at IDMA and VICTAM EMEA 2022. The event will take place in accordance with the Turkish Covid-19 safety measures to ensure the safety of all participants. This includes measures around physical distancing, increased hygiene practices, safe food service, sanitization, and cleaning protocols for your safety on site.
In spite of the continuing global uncertainty, over 5.000 square meters of exhibition space has now been sold to around 100 companies. Companies like ALAPROS, FRIGORTEC, MY SILO, PINGLE, SCE SILO and YEMTAR have confirmed their participation. The IDMA and VICTAM EMEA event is strongly supported by associations from Turkey and many other countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
With more than a month to go, over 2.000 visitors from all over the world have already registered to visit IDMA and VICTAM EMEA 2022. We especially see a high number of registrations coming in from Turkey, the Middle East and countries such as Egypt, Ukraine, and Russia.
Considering the unpredictable consequences of COVID, the organization of IDMA and VICTAM EMEA 2022 has decided to organize the event in a hybrid format: you can attend the event as exhibitor live or online from your stand. Both formats will ensure you an excellent experience and network opportunity.
The hybrid on-line/ off-line format which the organizers offer allows companies, who cannot travel to Turkey, to exhibit with a fully branded and equipped stand including a local bi-lingual host to welcome and connect visitors to the exhibiting team at the office via live-stream. This way, companies can tap into the market potential of IDMA and VICTAM EMEA 2022.
Throughout the challenging circumstances at present, we uphold our mission to present a strong and value-adding industry event with high benefits for all parties involved.
