Over 300 Turkish and Dutch guests have witnessed the launch of the Dutch Design Desk Istanbul at Palais de Hollande on May 23, 2012. Vice prime minister of the Netherlands, Maxime Verhagen, together with head of the Business Delegation, Victor van der Chijs, unveiled the official logo of the Dutch Design Desk Istanbul during a grand reception held at the Dutch Consulate-General.

Dutch Design Desk Istanbul Director Nurten Meriçer: “Creative Industries, particularly design, fashion, and architecture, are promising markets with a sustainable growth potential in Istanbul. Dutch Design can play an important part in this growth. I am confident that Dutch creative industries will be successful in collaborating with Turkish partners and co-developing new business opportunities.”

Dutch Design Desk Istanbul aims to be the first port of call for Dutch designers and design companies aiming to enter the Turkish market and for Turkish parties interested in collaborating with Dutch designers. Its services include tailored matchmaking, a knowledge bank, advisory services, presentation and networking. The Dutch Design Desk Istanbul is located in the heart of Istanbul’s design, fashion and architecture district, Fulya, in The Building Information Centre (YEM).
