The world’s biggest exhibition in greenhouse industry Growtech 19th International Greenhouse, Agricultural Technology and Livestock Equipment Fair is being held in Antalya between November 27-30, 2019. This year, the fair is preparing to welcome over 850 exhibitor brands from more than 30 countries and over 90 thousand international visitors from more than 130 countries. In the fair to be organized in the venue of 50 thousand sqm at Antalya Expo Center, there are 5 categories: “Greenhouse & Irrigation Technologies”, “Seed”, “Plant Nutrition and Protection”, “Tractors & Agricultural Machinery”, and “Livestock”. Among the companies preparing to exhibit their products and services in these categories, TIMFOG, STOLLER and HEKTAŞ have made statements both about the fair and their products & services before the show.
Cengiz Yaylalı, CEO of TIMFOG: “We started to work within a broader framework thanks to Growtech”
Offering services in several countries, TIMFOG is present in over 40 countries and increasing the number of its export countries day by day. Cengiz Yaylalı, CEO of TIMFOG Termomekanik Mühendislik A.Ş, a pioneering company that focuses on air conditioning in the modern greenhouse sector, says “Growtech is a fair that especially attracts the attention of Westerners. Therefore, we consider the fair as the meeting point with Europe. We are trying to exhibit our recently developed products in this fair. This year, we will also exhibit our state-of-art technologies in modern greenhouses. We will present a new brand of ours. It will be a brand that manufactures turnkey greenhouses, focuses on special plants rather than on a classic modern greenhouse and operates in special areas. Once again, we will also have the chance to present the greenhouse air conditioner center which we improved. Yaylalı states that he visited the fairs in Europe and Asia and it is of importance for Turkey to utilize Growtech, which is a unique platform for better display of the sector’s power with its panorama, in a much better way.
Canan Yılmaz, Marketing Director of Stoller: “Thanks to Growtech, we increased the number of countries we export to”
Canan Yılmaz, Marketing Director of Stoller, a plant nutrition company operating globally since 1970, states that as one of the oldest exhibitors of Growtech Fair, having been in Growtech for 18 years has provided them with a great experience for observing the development of both the fair and their company. “We have exported to many countries thanks to participation of different countries and our connections at Growtech. Growtech is a meeting point for the sector. We are happy to come together with fellow companies sharing the market with us and with our customers we render service to across Turkey in one location. It is very important to us that investment made in a fair reflects on the commerce in this way and return to our company as a contribution. At the fair, we continue to share information with our biggest project Stoller Academy.
Stoller Academy is a project that we have been working on for almost two years and we are continuing globally. Our goal is to share as much information as possible with our networks of manufacturer and dealer. Using different expression styles that everyone can understand, we continue to share them through small trainings we have prepared within Stoller Academy.
Stating that they will present a brand-new product at the fair this year, Yılmaz says “Our product is named Relief. A product of ours that has been widely used abroad and we have recently started to launch this year. We have received positive results under the conditions of Turkey and in the Turkish market in the first attempts. We would like to share these results at Growtech Fair and explain our product in more detail. We see agriculture as the heart of Turkey, its growing sector and future.
Duygu Yüce Kavas, Brand Communication Manager of Hektaş: “Growtech is the most important meeting platform of the sector…”
Duygu Yüce Kavas, Brand and Communication Manager of Hektaş Company, states that Hektaş performs production in all inputs of the agricultural sector today and acts with the vision of becoming a global company that is opened to foreign markets. Highlighting that Growtech is the most important meeting platform of the sector, Kavas says “As Hektaş, we have been attending Growtech Fair for 10 years. By this means, we can meet domestic and foreign manufacturers and share our applications directly with them.
With the artificial intelligence-aided smart assistant application developed by our own engineers, we enable the manufacturers to detect the diseases they encounter in the field via the cameras of their mobile phones and get the most accurate information about the disease. The manufacturers who have detected the disease by taking pictures can be offered the most appropriate product for the disease on the same screen. We introduced our application in Growtech 2018 for the first time. We exhibit our new products and projects at Growtech Fair every year. This year, we are ready for the fair with quite different and equipped innovations.”
Engin Er, Fair Director of Growtech: “Professionals of global agricultural sector will meet at Growtech this year”
Underlining that Growtech is an export-oriented fair, Engin Er, Fair Director of Growtech says “This year, we are preparing to welcome more than 90 thousand visitors from over 130 countries and more than 850 exhibitors from over 30 countries. We have countries like the Netherlands, Spain, China, Korea, Jordan and Egypt that will provide National Participation. We will host the Purchase Committee Program from 51 countries on November 27 with the organization of the West Mediterranean Exporters Union (WMEU) under the coordination of the T.R. Ministry of Commerce. Synergy created with bilateral negotiations thanks to Growtech is turning into long-term commercial connections. I believe that we, as Growtech, have made significant contributions to the sector and our country in achieving their export targets. In 2019, we will bring the global agricultural sector professionals together at the Growtech International Agriculture Fair.”
