Women Vendors Exhibition And Forum- 23-24 February 2017, Istanbul, Turkey
The International Trade Centre (ITC) and the Women Entrepreneurs Association of Turkey (KAGIDER) are pleased to announce that the Women Vendors Exhibition and Forum (WVEF Istanbul) will take place on 23 and 24 February 2017 at the Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel. 700 company profiles have already been pre-screened and 450 companies selected to participate in the event, and new applications are being accepted through to 12 December 2016.
WVEF is the premier global event for women entrepreneurs to learn, to do business and to create lifetime opportunities to grow and internationalise their businesses. At previous events held in Brazil, Rwanda, Mexico and China, ITC facilitated thousands of business to business (B2B) meetings, catalysed more than US $ 50 million worth of commercial transaction agreements and mobilised partners to establish women’s economic empowerment initiatives across the world in support of the SheTrades initiative to connect one million women to market by 2020; click here for insights into the WVEF experience!

ITC and KAGIDER will continue to work with local and international partners to ensure that the WVEF Istanbul edition makes a demonstrated contribution to the economic empowerment of women through trade. In addition to the capacity building and business to business meetings that women entrepreneurs have traditionally benefitted from through WVEF, this year’s event will include a focus on investment and innovation.
