Online Ankara Construction Summit

Connecting Swiss technology with the Turkish construction industry

The Swiss Business Hub Turkey, with the support of the Consulate General of Istanbul and the Swiss Embassy in Turkey, will organize with partners from Turkey and Switzerland its first EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) Summit in 2020.

Turkish contractors with global footprint will meet with Swiss technology and Swiss financing in order to create smart solutions regarding projects in the EPC industries. Three alternate workshops should facilitate a detailed discussion, gain awareness and the future establishment of a combined EPC Platform between relevant Turkish and Swiss industry stakeholders. 

Turkey – Switzerland Online Construction Summit aims to establish enhanced cooperation of existing and new Turkish Contractor projects with Swiss technology companies in the intercontinental market i.e. African countries, Middle East or Turkey’s neighbouring countries.

Companies in Switzerland work closely with research institutes to develop new materials for their products. This means that there is a potential for international companies within the construction and infrastructure sector to collaborate with global leaders to improve their own offering. International companies can also participate in on-going R&D projects at Swiss research institutes, test and develop building techniques as well as environmental and sustainable ways of building.

The Turkish Contractors Association (TCA) and the Swiss Business Hub Turkey in cooperation with the Foreign Affairs of Switzerland invites you cordially to the first Turkey – Switzerland Online Construction Summit, which will be held on November 5, 2020 at 14:00h (EET).
