Exhibitions that are held in Kipsala reflect recent developments of the industry in Latvia, the Baltics, and the whole world. They not only influence but also create the content and offer of the exhibitions.
BT 1 closely cooperates with the professional associations of the relevant industries, which often are the co-organisers of the exhibitions. The involvement of associations contributes to the development of entrepreneurship and national economy, adds to the qualitative content of the event, therefore creating trust for both local and foreign companies.
The number of foreign companies at trade fairs held by BT 1 throughout the year makes up approx. 25 % but the number of foreign visitors, according to approximate estimates, about 20 %.
Representatives of foreign companies use trade fairs to achieve their business goals – to explore the Baltic market, to talk to other players in the sector, to meet potential partners, to introduce their products and brands etc.
In 2017, the largest representation of foreign companies was from Lithuania, Estonia, Turkey, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Italy, Georgia and Belarus.
