9-11 October, 2019     Congresium, Ankara

Under the auspices of Turkey’s Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, the 4th International Roads, Bridges and Tunnels Fair brings together all the shareholders involved in planning, project designing, application and management processes, including public organisations, contractors, subcontractors, universities, NGOs, and material, machinery and equipment suppliers.


“Mega Projects Call Their Heroes” is the motto that best describes the scope of this fair which will be held in Istanbul, a city that serves as a bridge between the two continents of Asia and Europe. Indeed, Istanbul is home to many mega road projects in recent years. It is the aim of the Turkish government to make every corner of Turkey accessible, and the mega projects implemented and planned in Turkey are followed closely by the rest of the world. Expertise has advanced so far in Turkey that spectacular high tech projects such as the Çanakkale 1915 Bridge can now be carried out with ease, and take into consideration all environmental and security aspects.


This fair will host undertakers (project managers, contractors, consultants) who are the national and international shareholders of the road construction projects as well as manufacturers and suppliers of new machines, materials and equipment, which are continually advancing technological boundaries to enable bigger, more efficient and aesthetic projects.
