Growtech grows to gateway exhibitionThis week the Growtech Eurasia takes place at the Antalya Exhibition Centre in Turkey. Even though the Turkish greenhouse market itself is not as flourishing as it seemed to be some years ago, the Growtech has found a strong position in the industry. For exhibitors, both from the Turkish market and other countries, the GrowTech turned out to be the gateway to countries in Eastern Europe as well as Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Turkmenistan and the UAE.
Over the last years, the Turkish greenhouse industry has had its struggles. With the Russian import ban going on and off, the position for growers isn't as secure as it used to be. Therefore the investments in the Turkish market aren't as high as suppliers expected them to be a couple of years ago, when the Turkish-Russian relationship was better.
Even though the Turkish investment climate is low, the GrowTech Antalya still has a very vivid atmosphere. Thanks to the surrounding countries and the gateway the GrowTech offers to these countries, the exhibition is an important hub for the international horticultural industry.
