13 June 2019

The Zer Summit 2019, with the theme of “Now-New-Next”, took place on June 13.


We held our eight summit this year, with a participation record of over 400 guests at the Fenerbahçe Faruk Ilgaz Facilities.
At the summit, where we also started to host our non-community customers in 2018, participants from several different sectors met again under the same roof this year.

Our General Manager Mehmet Apak took the stage first. Within the scope of our theme, he talked about our current activities, our new regulations and practices as well as our targets in the near future at Zer.
Then, Pınar Ercan Tursun, General Manager at Ingage, and David Stubbs, Head of Client Investment Strategy at J.P. Morgan made their speeches respectively.

The second half of the summit started with a pleasant panel by Koç Holding Chief Economist Ahmet Çimenoğlu, and General Manager Bekir Ağırdır from Konda Research and Consultancy. The summit continued with a speech by Kerem Dündar, Founder of Nöro Sağlık Beyin Araştırmaları ve Uygulamaları Merkezi (Neurological Research and Application Center), and the closing speech was delivered by Levent Çakıroğlu, CEO of Koç Holding.

This year, while working on the Now-New-Next theme with our customers, we wanted to add a meaning of social responsibility to the gathering, and accordingly, we donated wheelchairs to the Ereğli Physical Disabilities Association on behalf of our participants.

Our event ended with a cocktail.
