ATRAX Hosted for the 7th time the Biggest Meeting of the Attraction- Parks-Recreation Industry…

We came together one more time at ATRAX Exhibition, the international summit of the Attraction- Parks-Recreation Industry in Turkey. We introduced the latest innovations and services in the sector in the world to mainly municipalities as well as to shopping malls, hotels, housing project companies, corporations, organizers and investors. Our main goal is to be able to respond to all needs of the projects mainly in Turkey and its surrounding region and to create social and economic value by contributing to the efforts for developing more projects.

We are aware that Turkey has a major geographical advantage due to being located at the crossroads for target markets in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. Due to this advantage she has, we believe that Turkey is an ideal candidate to become the main hub for the region’s attraction industry. And we strive to realize this approach of ours by adding novelties and enhancements to the exhibition every year.

ATRAX Exhibition which we organized for the 7th time in light of our sustainable efforts and which is sponsored by Outdoor Factory as the gold sponsor, Polin Waterpark as Silver Sponsor will be moving forward to bring together at a larger scale the stakeholders of the attraction and recreation industry with innovative ideas.

We believe that we are a big family and we will continue to create new opportunities for all stakeholders of the sector, to embrace the industry at the international level and to introduce the latest novelties to you.

We’d like to express our deepest gratitude to our sponsors and all individuals and organizations that have joined, visited or supported our exhibition.

 

ATRAX Take Attention With The “HAPPY CITIES” Theme
People’s lives get shaped by the mentality of the city they live in and in the spirit of the city influences the mood of its residents, creating happy or unhappy people.

This year, with the “Happy Cities” theme, ATRAX brings to the forefront, attraction and recreation projects that create more opportunities for socializing and activities and focused on the happiness of the residents of the city.

ATRAX continues to Enlighten the Sector via its Conference Series…
The main discussion topics of the conference organized as part of ATRAX 2019 Exhibition, that brought together leaders of the sector, academicians, local governments, society presidents, directors of organizations and institutions and universities, were “Importance and Necessity of Building Happy Cities’ and “The Impact of Entertainment and Recreation on the Happiness of City People”.

ATRAX, Took a Major Step for Combining Theory and Practice with its “University Special Section” …
This year ATRAX offered competition titled “University Special Section” related to “Happy Cities Project” whereby it rewarded the best ideas offered by the universities and shared these ideas with sector’s representatives via the dedicated conference.

The project was organized by Tureks Uluslararası Fuarcılık in cooperation with REKÇAD (Recreation Studies and Research Association) with the goal of building the quality of life of the future and creating value social-cultural-touristic-economic and educational sense.

The project which aims to support and share with all stakeholders, municipal park projects which support the brandization and marketing efforts of cities and other right projects that would shape the future of cities contributes to the efforts for providing higher quality products and services in the recreation and events industry by bringing together theory and practice on the same platform.

The project which comprises recreation, sports sciences, communication, landscape architecture, architecture and city planning departments, helps universities meet with manufacturers, investors, event managers and service buyers (such as municipalities, hotels, shopping malls, companies etc.) by providing coordination among different disciplines.

This project which we believe will make an important contribution to both the sector and ATRAX Exhibition, will be implemented with a larger scope in the coming year.

We are more than delighted to hear that some of the university projects will be brought to life by certain municipalities.

Officials from IPAR – Rope Hiking Trail and Adventure Parks Society Met Representatives from the Sector.

Two sessions of the panel titled SAFE PARKS HEALTHY TOMOROWS organized by IPAR – Rope Hiking Trail and Adventure Parks Society as part of our conference program themed “Happy Cities”, brought together reputable expert speakers and professionals from the sector.
