British Technology
Summit 2014
Showcase your business in one of Europe’s most exciting growth markets.
Turkey’s rapidly expanding economy, political and economic stability, and the
possibility of EU membership makes it the ideal market for UK technology
companies looking for new opportunities.
Trade between the UK and Turkey is growing rapidly and has increased by
almost 40% since 2009 to over $11 billion a year. This burgeoning growth
combined with Turkish businesses’ appetite for new and innovative technology to
enable them to move up the value chain makes Turkey an attractive market for
UK firms.
