Trade Mission to Turkey

Expand your business successfully in Turkey

Turkey is one of the most dynamic and attractive markets for UK companies. Already sizeable, the Turkish economy will be the second fastest growing economy in the world by 2018 and will out-strip those of Italy and Spain in the next decade. Turkey, with its large, young and well-educated population (latest estimate 77 million), is already a member of the EU Customs Union and is negotiating for full EU membership.

Is It For you?

This visit is open to experienced exporters from all sectors who are interested in doing business in Turkey, partnering with companies in Turkey or looking to expand operations in Turkey.

There are clear opportunities in a wide range of sectors including:

  • Infrastructure
  • Construction
  • Marine
  • Ports
  • Rail/ Airports
  • ICT
  • Automotive and High Performance Engineering
  • High-end consumer goods

Visit one of the UK’s fastest growing major export markets with like-minded companies and UKTI staff, both locally and overseas.

  • Networking events with local partners

Most activity will be in the Istanbul area, but it will be possible  for individual delegates to travel to other cities such as Ankara and Izmir

*For many companies, one to one business meetings will be a key element of the visit and ample time is allowed for this. We strongly recommend that if you do not already have contacts in this market, that you take advantage of the UKTI’s tailored meeting arranging service. They can identify contacts and warm up potential leads on your behalf. This service needs to be arranged well in advance of the mission.


Delegates will be responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel and accommodation. However UKTI will suggest convenient flights and accommodation and we encourage all delegates to stay in our recommended hotel. All British nationals require a visa to enter Turkey. British citizens may obtain a multiple entry visitor’s visa, valid for 90 days, at port of entry on payment. Passports must be valid for a minimum period of six months from the date of entry into Turkey and have at least three months validity from the date you are exiting Turkey.

Cost: The non refundable registration fee for this trade mission is £250 +VAT (£100+VAT for each additional company delegate).
