“This is our first show in Turkey and in general the first time promoting outside of Kosovo. We decided to exhibit to get an idea of how we can position ourselves in the future. We’ve had good feedback yesterday, we’ve met a lot of interesting companies, mostly retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers from the Middle East.”

We have been very successful with our exports to Europe and the United States but not yet in the Middle East or Turkey.”

“Yesterday went really well and today it is going even better. So far it is only 11am in the morning and we’ve already had some serious meetings.”
