More than 250 delegates from Turkey and the region attended the first joint KHL/Apa Demolition Conference Turkey, held at the Marriot Asia Hotel on the Asian side of the city of Istanbul on March 7, 2013.
The event included a mix of Turkish speakers and some well-known names in the industry from around the world.
With a major demolition drive announced, the country will see some 6.5 million buildings deemed not sufficiently earthquake resistant demolished over the next 20 years.
However, the demolition industry in the country is at a relatively early stage in its development and the expertise and advice of contractors from outside the country is being welcomed.
EDA was actively present at the conference, networking with local and international professionals interested on this market.
With this in mind, the final announcement of the day was that the second Demolition Conference Turkey will be held in early March 2014.
