We believe that this cooperation will provide great contribution for the industry. ICCI has served as the only energy event in Eurasia where exhibition, conference and B2B events are organized together for years. And now we are taking a step further. In ICCI 2017, our exhibitors and visitors will experience a more powerful event which combine local knowledge with international expertise of two global companies in order to create an efficient international trade platform which is attractive to both Turkish exporters and foreign investors.”
