BMC Otomotiv takes biggest booth ever in Busworld Turkey


Turkish bus maker BMC Otomotiv has booked a massive booth this time in Busworld Turkey, an international bus and coach expo that will take place from April 19-21 in Izmir.

Busworld said that BMC Otomotiv has been a very loyal exhibitor at Busworld exhibitions, both in Turkey as well as in Belgium, the Busworld Europe exhibition. In the current year edition of Busworld Turkey, BMC Otomotiv has booked a 3,000 sqm booth. Never before a booth this big has been sold in Turkey. It clearly marks the ambition of BMC Otomotiv in the bus industry and their believe in the Busworld platform.

Mieke Glorieux, Director of Busworld, said, ”It is an honour to welcome BMC again, especially in a giant booth like this. In October they won a Busworld Awards Label for Design for their Neocity bus at the Busworld Europe in direct competition with many other brands, so we are all very curious about their booth and the vehicles they will bring to Izmir.”  

The seventh edition of Busworld Turkey will take place in Izmir for the first time. Busworld Turkey will receive its exhibitors and visitors in the Fuar Izmir exhibition halls.

Izmir is the third biggest city in Turkey after Istanbul and Ankara and also an important seaport and touristic destination with its 4,000-year-old history. The international airport and the easy connections by bus and train with other big cities makes the city the ideal location to host a typical Busworld exhibition. 

Turkey is the largest manufacturer of buses and coaches in Europe, with a very wide range of products. They range from minibuses right through to articulated city buses and from small coaches to double deck. The Turkish government has been encouraging the use of competitively priced CNG.
