Trade Publishing
"Sin a qua non for Industrial Life"


Trade Publishing has a significant impact over the structural development of an industry. Starting from the second half of 1980s, Trade Publishing has increased its activities and effectiveness in Turkey, which made each trade periodical an outstanding source of information both in terms of commercial and technical matters. In accordance with decentralized multi-level industrial development coupled with the progress in paper and printing industry and the electronic publishing, increasing accessibility to knowledge brought writers, scholars and photographers available to impart this formerly tacit knowledge. In line with the development of industrial life and accessibility to new source of information, thousands of books, reports and catalogs were published; and today Trade Publishing Houses serve as an information center. The direct contact with thousands of people, not only provides them strong voice in the relevant industries, but also provides easy access to knowledge about the latest developments. Thus, it is clear that Trade Publishing is one of the main arcs of industrial life to develop. 

Considering these factors, Trade Publishing Association(SEYAD) was founded in 2000 to strengthen the structure and operation of Trade Publishing houses.
