Komatek 2013 opens

By Helen Wright29 May 2013

The 13th biannual Komatek construction equipment trade fair in Ankara, Turkey has officially opened. Taking place from 29 May to 2 June at Atatürk culture centre, the event is expected to attract around 35,000 visitors.

With 418 exhibitors registered, there is plenty to see at the event, which covers 73,300 m2 of exhibition space, of which around 48,650 m2 is outdoors and 4,650 m2 indoors. And there are plenty of big international manufacturers present, including Atlas Copco, Bell, Borusan (Caterpillar’s local dealer), Case, Terex and Zoomlion, to name just a few.

Turkish manufacturers are also present en mass, including Hidromek, Çesan and İnan Makina – names that are growing increasingly well-established on the international market.

Turkey represents an important market for the international construction equipment industry due in part to its location as a gateway to the mature market of Europe, as well as emerging markets in Africa and Asia.
