Overseas Marketing Activities
Gazi Informatics Cluster which started to work on internationalization in May 2015 with 21 IT companies under the roof of Gazi Technopark has played an important role in providing education, consultancy and foreign marketing activities and information technology exports to companies in this process.
From the planning of overseas marketing activities to the realization of this process, close cooperation with the companies, the selection of local consultants in the regions where the activities were carried out, the integration of training and marketing activities and the institutional identity of the cluster culture have played a major role in achieving this success.
As a result of the activities carried out, cluster exports increased by 120 percent compared to the previous year, while the number of firms exporting to cluster firms increased by 300 percent. Through our B2B and investor negotiations during the marketing activities, our companies have taken steps to provide important contributions to our country's exports and competitive power.
