Providing for proper government incentives, as ZUCDER we also encourage our members to participate in the international exhibitions abroad such as Ambiente of Frankfurt, Homi of Milan, IHA of Chicago, Maison Objet of Paris and Manila Fame of Manila in capacity of exhibitors. Furthermore, ZUCDER also organizes commercial assemblies consisting of our members who visits these exhibitions in order to establish new business relations.
In order to attract visitors or exhibitors from the Turkish Housewares realm, the organizers of the newly established foreign expos invite a number of ZUCDER staff to the newly organized event as their guests so the ZUCDER staff can examine and analyze the market and see the potential of it for the Housewares world of Turkey. Once we are satisfied with our observations, as ZUCDER we promote the event to our members and encourage them to participate in the next editions in capacity of exhibitors or visitors.
