An organization need in Turkey by our businessmen who works abroad was met by establishment of Turkish Foreign Trade Foundation (TDV) in 1995. TDV, started for organizing of “World Turkish Businessmen Conventions” in 1996 gathering up our businessmen active in various countries with the main philosophy of creating an ambience for mutual support, synergy and concrete cooperation as well as its other activities. The second Convention was held in 1998. These Conventions are beyond from the platforms in which our businessmen are being gathered and expressed only their desires and wishes. Sector meetings within the scope of Conventions, Convention Fairs, and mutual interviews ensure concrete relations to be created. The “Convention Catalogue” as an important reference source and the “Convention Book” as minutes of all meetings bear the written and long-lasting characteristics of this event.

President of Turkish Republic, Prime Minister, Cabinet Members, state enterprises and institutions, occupational organizations both domestic and abroad, businessmen and media show great interest to the Conventions.
