ISTANBUL, TURKEY — Victam Corp. and Parantez Group will have an in-person IDMA and Victam EMEA exhibition and conference May 27-29 at the Istanbul Expo Center in Istanbul, Turkey.

The event will include an alternative exhibition format for international companies who want to have a presence but are unable to commit to traveling. The hybrid online/offline presence will allow companies to exhibit with a fully-branded and equipped stand including a local bilingual host to connect visitors via live-stream.

“We are confident that this hybrid participation format will enable international exhibitors to tap into this market potential with the brand presence and personal contact with targeted industry contacts (via live-stream) that one is accustomed to at events, whilst not bearing risk,” organizers said. “Exhibitors will be 100% refunded should the event not be able to take place at this date.”

The decision to proceed with the live event was based on several factors, primarily the relative stability and positive forecasts of the COVID-19 situation in Turkey. Vaccination programs currently underway in several countries across the globe are expected to bring some global relief in the second quarter of this year. As such the Turkish government has allowed business events to proceed biding all measures are taken.

 Uncertainty as to whether the event would take place has led to hesitation amongst international exhibitors. Turkish companies however, are noticeably more positive and many have confirmed their participation, organizers said. The event has sold over 5,000 square meters, surpassing its pre-pandemic expectation.

 The event will take place in accordance with the Turkish COVID-19 safety measures to ensure the safety of all participants, organizers said.
