OTOKAR General Manager Serdar GÖRGÜÇ`s Comments and A Message on IDEF `21

Date: Issue 110 - October 2021

“We are pleased to attend IDEF ‘21. Fairs have always been an opportunity for us, the manufacturers, to talk about new programs and needs with end-users and to come together with suppliers. As you know, several fairs have been postponed for about 1.5 years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of them have been completely canceled, and our face-to-face processes have been seriously interrupted. Therefore, holding the IDEF Fair this year was a good morale-boosting development for the entire industry. 

The participation rate of foreign delegations in IDEF Fairs has always been high. At first, we had concerns about whether the number of foreign delegations would be affected, as the fair would be held in August this year during the pandemic period. However, contrary to our concerns, we had a good fair. Although the delegations from our target countries in land systems were few, there were delegations from several other countries, especially from the African region, that we had not met before. We had the opportunity to meet with our supplier participating in the fair and talk about our new projects. It was a very fulfilling IDEF for us.
