logitrans 2013 is becoming firmly established in the logistics industry

The three-day long 7th logitrans International Transport Logistics Exhibition drew to a successful conclusion on Saturday, 23 November 2013. A total of 11,797 participants from 56 countries quizzed 206 exhibitors from 21 countries about their products and services. The increased degree of internationality and quality of the participants were especially impressive.

This was confirmed by Holger Föh, Head of Trade Fairs and Events at BLG Logistics Group in Germany: “We are exceptionally surprised by the positive growth the trade fair has experienced and can say here and now that we will be taking part again in 2014. The BLG not only recorded a large number of contacts, they were of high quality as well.” And Wido A.H. Lange, Account Manager at noy logistics in the Netherlands, was also satisfied: “logitrans 2013 exceeded our expectations. Visitor numbers were high and have a big potential.”

The top five participating countries, apart from Turkey, were – in this order – Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Austria and Lithuania. The proportion of international participants was just under 15 per cent. Mirace Irem Koyuncu, Corporate Communication Manager at Ekol Lojistik in Turkey, had this to say on the subject: “We esteem logitrans as a very beneficial platform that brings all the shareholders of the sector together, enables new cooperation opportunities and helps improve commercial relations. This year we have observed the effects of the marketing activities for the fair and the increase in visitor numbers was very satisfying for us. We believe that this number will accelerate each year.”

More than 50 per cent of the exhibitors, presenting themselves in two halls covering around 10,000 square meters, came from abroad. For the first time, there was involvement from Albania, Croatia, Lithuania and Ukraine. The top five exhibitor countries were Turkey, Germany, Italy, Austria and Latvia. Many exhibitors availed themselves of the country pavilion concept to make an initial acquaintance with the Turkish market. Among their number was Dr. Robert Schönberger, Managing Director of Logistik-Cluster Schwaben (Logistics Cluster Swabia) in Germany: logitrans 2013 offered our companies a good opportunity on the back of the German national presence to take its first steps in the Turkish market. The “one-stop shopping” concept allied with first class support by the organizer facilitated market entry.” ...more>>
