The fair, which was organized in two halls last year, will spread across three halls in its second edition this year, Şener said.
“Last year we had 250 participants representing 200 companies, while the number of participants is 350 this year, representing some 400 companies. The fair will cover an area of nearly 26,000 square meters,” he added.
Şenel said a wide range of events would take place during the fair this year, with a particular focus on drawing young people.
“The victory of Çanakkale is very important in our history. We want people to remember it once again. We will host many events for the 100th year of the war. Among them is an exhibition with many unseen photos. I highly recommend that students see this exhibition. Work for the exhibition went on for one year, so we hope it will receive great interest from the public,” Şenel added.
