Country Partner


MCE has announced that Turkey will be the honour’s partner country for the next edition.

A choice that wants to enhance the collaboration with a country, always present at MCE that, in recent years has recorded an upward trend, both in the number of companies exhibiting (a 9% rise in 2018 versus 2016 and a 25.5% increase in occupied space in 2018 versus 2016) and of trade visitors, (a 16.5% increase in the last two editions). In fact, 70 Turkish companies have already booked 3,600 square metres confirming their presence at MCE 2020 so far.

A growth trend that captures well a snapshot of a nation that over the past few years has seen an increase in its commercial strength worldwide through targeted initiatives arranged by the Government to support a diverse range of industry sectors. Indeed, in 2017 Turkey had the highest GDP growth of 7.4 per cent among OECD countries (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the fastest growing of all G20 economies, becoming Europe's 5th biggest economy and the 13th largest in the world.
