As Karşıyaka Municipality, we attached a special importance to the exhibition this year. Because we carried the theme of Universal Children’s Museum and Training Campus which we will open in a short while and which will be realized for the first time in Turkey, to our stand. Karsiyaka Municipality, which always supports training that is related with science, created a difference both with this service and with their stand opened with this concept. The interest shown by the families and children in the dinosaur mock-ups is great.            I invite all my fellow citizens to Karsiyaka stand during the exhibition period.”
