Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 6 / Trend /
Azerbaijan's annual programme of Autumn exhibitions will get underway in September. The exhibitions, organised by Iteca Caspian, part of the ITE Group, will cover 12 sectors.
This is a particularly special season for the exhibition industry, as all exhibitions in the capital will be held at the Baku Expo Center, Baku's new world class exhibition complex. This move is significant for the new venue, which is ideal for hosting events. The exhibitions' continued success is also ensured as the events are officially supported by the Government, Iteca Caspian reported.
The Autumn season will kick off with a series of regional exhibitions. The 3rd Azerbaijan Regional Ganja Infrastructure Exhibition will take place on 21-23 September in Ganja. This exhibition is endorsed by the Ministry of Economic Development of the Azerbaijan Republic, the Executive Power of Ganja, the National Confederation of Entrepreneurs (Employers) of the Azerbaijan Republic and the Association of Entrepreneurs of Ganja. Emphasis will be placed on products and services in the agricultural sector, food industry, construction and banking. The exhibition will feature a number of plants that are new to Azerbaijan.
Meanwhile, the capital will see the opening of several almost simultaneous exhibitions. The annual Baku International Healthcare Exhibition (BIHE), which will be held on 22-24 September, is officially supported by the Ministry of Health of the Azerbaijan Republic, the Azerbaijan Stomatological Association and the National Confederation of Entrepreneurs (Employers) of the Azerbaijan Republic.
