The most comprehensive meeting of the mining industry in Eurasia started in Tüyap

The mining industry met under the same roof for the 9th time.

The most comprehensive meeting of the mining industry in Eurasia started in Tüyap

Mining Turkey 2021, the most comprehensive meeting of the industry held in Eurasia, was held on December 9, by Deputy Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Prof. Dr. Şeref Kalaycı, President of Yurt Mining Development Foundation Prof. Dr. Güven Önal opened its doors with the speeches of Aydın Dinçer, Chairman of the Board of Istanbul Mineral Exporters' Association, İsmail Gülle, Chairman of the Turkish Exporters Assembly, and Zeynep Ünal Öztop, Chairman of the Executive Board of Tüyap Fairs Group.

Organized with the support of KOSGEB and the Ministry of Commerce, the fair brought together industry professionals with the participation of qualified companies from Turkey and abroad. The fair, which is the choice of industry professionals this year with its visitor registration from 91 countries, will expand its sphere of influence with the digital solutions developed by Tüyap. Exhibitor companies and visitors will be able to come together digitally during and after the exhibition through the online business networking platform Business Connect Program, and establish long-term cooperation.

“The automation and clean energy revolution will affect the mining industry”

In his speech at the opening, Deputy Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Prof. Dr. Şeref Kalaycı said, “The time has come for us to start unmanned mining projects in the domestic technology move. Another issue we need to focus on is clean energy. Automation and clean energy revolution will be two important factors that will affect the mining industry in the near future. Kalaycı said: “Mining has a strong potential to create employment, it is a sector that prevents unemployment and prevents migration. Mining, which provides input to industry, agriculture and energy, must be done with an effective planning and control. Unfortunately, the share of the sector in GNP is around 1 percent… We have to increase this rate. Our basic approach should be to turn our mines into products instead of putting them into operation with the motto of 'People first, then the environment and mining'. The industry needs to focus on the automation and clean energy revolution with the pandemic. We see that fewer people and more machines come forward for more mineral production. We come across visions of unmanned mines around the world. We see that this process continues its development with different stages. It is imperative that we work efficiently with the OIZ cluster, important universities and mechatronics departments. We should plan to run the machine more while increasing production per worker. We should see this as a strategy of digitalization and automation in mines. We should combine mining with automation and focus on clean energy. With the clean energy revolution, we will have to produce many more minerals. We will need to produce 20-30 times more copper, aluminum, lithium and other commodities. We need to process these issues in such organizations.”

“Turkey has strengthened its position as the trade center of the Eurasian region”

Stating that they are very happy to bring together the representatives of the mining industry under the same roof for the 9th time, Zeynep Ünal Öztop, Chairman of the Executive Board of Tüyap Fairs Group, said, “As the Tüyap family, more than 500 teammates, our 42 years of experience and the support of the professional organizations with which we cooperate, face the challenges faced during the pandemic. We were able to overcome. Since August, we have hosted 27 fairs without any interruption in our fair calendar. Compared to the global fair industry, the fair sector has recovered rapidly, especially compared to the European Union countries. With our fairs, we observed that Turkey maintains its position as the leading trade center of the Eurasian region and even gets stronger. Today, we are hosting 529 participating companies and company representatives from 27 countries at our fair, which is eagerly awaited by the representatives of the mining industry. At the fair in 2018, this number was 448. Our countries with visitor registration increased by 24 percent from 69 to 91 this year. Our fair continues its steady growth in terms of both the company diversity and the geographical diversity it comes into contact with. This year, unlike previous years, we will further expand the scope of our fair with our Business Connect Program. All these data show that the heart of the global mining industry will beat at our fair for 4 days. As Tüyap, we are already proud of the successful results we will achieve.”

“Our fairs will bring sustainability to our exports”

TİM President İsmail Gülle pointed out that after 2020, which passed with the pandemic, 2021 provided an unforgettable period for the economy with its success in exports, TİM President İsmail Gülle said, “We made 2021 unforgettable by breaking export records in this period. The export family has become the hope and pride of Turkey. Turkey received the reward of not disrupting its production and exports. In November, we reached the figures of 21.5 billion dollars. With the latest figures we have obtained, we have seen that our export level is at the level of 25 billion dollars. Making this sustainable is very important for our country. We set a target of 300 billion dollars in 2026. Indicators show that we will push this to 2025. Continuing this success will be with our fairs such as Mining Turkey Fair. In addition to our physical fairs, we will continue this process with our digital applications at our fairs. We are a very rich country in mining. We own 60 of the 90 mineral wealth. When we process these mines in a richer way and turn them into value-added products, we will also support our exports. As the 4th country in the world in marble, we must continue our export activities by increasing the added value. Now, the most important thing in mining is to increase the kilogram value of our millions of tons of exports. When we increase the kilogram value from $1.45 to $2, we reach an annual figure of 300 billion dollars. We believe that the mining fair will help us achieve this goal.”

“It will bring an opening to the mining industry”

Emphasizing that the Mining Turkey 2021 Fair has successfully continued its development by increasing the number of exhibitors and visitors as well as its geographical diversity, Prof. Dr. Güven Önal said, “Today, despite the pandemic conditions, we are faced with a fair with a high number of participants. The rise in foreign exchange requires us to give more importance to mining activities. We have to mobilize our own resources. In this respect, I believe that the fair will bring a big expansion to mining activities.”

Meeting point of business contacts

Bringing together industry stakeholders, manufacturers, non-governmental organizations, relevant ministries and their affiliates, universities, sectoral press and professional visitors, Mining Turkey 2021 Fair will offer advantages to its participants and visitors in many respects. The fair, which steadily increases the number of visitors and exhibitors every year it takes place, will introduce exhibitors and visitors to the power of digital technology this year. With the digital solutions developed by Tüyap, the exhibitor companies and visitors will come together digitally through the Business Connect Program, the online business network platform, and can be visited until 17.00 on Sunday, December 12.

Steady increase in the number of visitors and exhibitors

Bringing together industry stakeholders, manufacturers, non-governmental organizations, relevant ministries and their affiliates, universities, sectoral press and professional visitors, Mining Turkey Fair steadily increases the number of visitors and participants every year. In the previous fair, a total of 11,082 visitors, including 448 exhibitors from 33 countries, 762 foreigners from 69 countries, and purchasing delegations from Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, North Macedonia, Ghana, Nigeria, Iran and Saudi Arabia were hosted. The fair, where all the machinery and equipment, consumables, auxiliary materials and services required by surface and underground mining were exhibited and all exhibitors and visitors were satisfied, had an increase of 14% in the number of participants and 17% in the number of visitors in the same year. It is expected that the steady increase in both the number of exhibitors and visitors will continue at this year's fair.

Negotiations will continue after the fair.

The participants, who started their meetings before the fair through the Business Connect Program developed by Tüyap, thus had the chance to create an infrastructure for efficient business meetings during the fair. After the fair, between 13-17 December, matched exhibitors and visitors will be able to meet online or face-to-face through the Business Connect Program.

Safe fair environment

Tuyap, which directs the development of many sectors from defense to packaging, from agriculture to construction, through the fairs it organizes, will meticulously implement the COVID-19 measures it applies at every fair in Mining Turkey 2021 as well. As the first exhibition center to receive the Turkish Standards Institute's COVID-19 Safe Service Certificate, it will create a safe exhibition environment for its exhibitors and visitors with the measures it has taken.


We are waiting for all our followers at our booth numbered 602D in Hall 6 of Mining Turkey Fair, where we are media partners and participants.
