Women Vendors Exhibition and Forum

Venue: Istanbul, Turkey | Time: Workshop

Women Vendors Exhibition and Forum (WVEF), organized by The International Trade Centre (ITC) and the Women Entrepreneurs Association of Turkey (KAGIDER), is the premier global event for women entrepreneurs to learn, to do business and to create lifetime opportunities to grow and internationalise their businesses.

At previous events held in Brazil, Rwanda, Mexico and China, ITC facilitated thousands of B2B meetings, catalysed more than USD 50 million worth of commercial transaction agreements and mobilised partners to establish women’s economic empowerment initiatives across the world in support of the SheTrades initiative to connect one million women to market by 2020.

In addition to the capacity building and B2B meetings that women entrepreneurs have traditionally benefited from through WVEF, this year’s event will include a focus on investment and innovation.
