Participation to IDMA will keep snowballing
Chairman of the Board of Directors of Southeast Flour Industrialists Association Erhan ÖZMEN: Until Google emerged, the most difficult thing in the world was information. The most difficult subject was knowledge. Access to information became easier after Google emerged. Now the most difficult thing in the world is to reach a dialogue with people, product, customer and the world. However, thanks to this kind of services, a significant organization is gathering involving both the producer and the consumer. And here, the name of this service is Parantez Fair and IDMA. I am talking about a family that has specialized in this sector for 16 years, traveling around the globe and doing its job with passion.
I congratulate Parantez Fair Organization with my heart. It brought over 200 companies from more than 105 countries today and I think it will grow like an avalanche. I strongly believe that these works, which are supported by the entrepreneurial Turkish sector, will achieve even more successful projects. I congratulate them. May God speed them. You are all welcome.
IDMA is a specialized trade fair in this sector
Prof. Dr. Mustafa Bayram, President of Association of Grain and Pulses Processing Technologies, Storage and Analysis Systems (TABADER): We were here two years ago. We were together again. Fortunately, there are such nice organizations that we can at least see each other. We can see where technology is going. IDMA is one of the two specialized trade fairs in this sector in the world as far as I know. It has been a ‘sustainable’ organization. That’s the original magic word. It has been doing this very well for 16 years. I thank all those who contributed to it.
In the last 300 years, human have actually made the first designs of many machines you will see in this fair. And today, in the era we are now, the industry began to enter the Industry 4.0. For this reason, fairs that represent such sectors are crucial and strategic. This is not just coming together. This is a kind of well-thought-out organization to trigger technology. I am already inviting you to meet here again two years later.
