The International Exhibition Company BT 1 takes pride in its more than 22-years long experience in exhibition business. During these years, BT 1 has become the leading exhibition organiser in the Baltic states, organising major exhibitions in food and construction industries, beauty, tourism, education, engineering, metal processing and other industries.

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 in exhibitions organised by BT 1 throughout the year makes up approx. 25 % but the number of foreign visitors, according to approximate estimates, about 20 %.
In the international textile industry fair “Baltic Fashion & Textile Riga 2017”, the representation of foreign participants substantially exceeds the number of local participants, making up 68 %. However, in the international trade fair for mechanical engineering, metal processing and automation “Tech Industry 2017”, the number of foreign participants makes up 38,2 %, but in the food industry fair “Riga Food 2017” – 33,1 %.
Representatives of foreign companies use exhibitions to meet their business objectives - to get to know the Baltic market, talk to other industry players, meet potential cooperation partners, introduce others to their products and represented brands, etc.
