A dinner introducing architects to the Turkish Trade Center, with Paul Finch and guests

We were delighted to co-host a dinnertime event with Paul Finch that included a number of influential figures from the world of architecture and design.

The dinner was set up to introduce key members of the architectural profession to members of the Turkish Trade Center in Clerkenwell. The Trade Center is part of a global network set up by the Turkish Exporters’ Assembly to represent Turkish businesses around the world. Each Trade Center acts as an introduction to Turkish exporters and their products, and to assist them in helping them enter the market.
