There are loads of conventions in Istanbul which hint at its history as the connection between Asia and Europe, from the Food-Tech Eurasia Turkey which highlights various produces in the culinary supply world to the Istanbul Mediterranean Shipping Summit, which seeks to find sustainable solutions to key issues. Conference delegates will also be able to plug into the retail side of things with the Beauty & Wellness Show, the Istanbul Furniture Fair, or even at the Istanbul Kids Fashion Expo — if that’s your niche; otherwise they do also have a bunch of technology conferences such as the Solarex Istanbul.
