Bell-ringing Ceremony

Bell-ringing Ceremony

The opening and closing of the markets in Borsa İstanbul are announced to the traders and the public in general by ringing a bell symbolically at the opening and closing times. Such symbolic announcement is turned into a celebration on particularly special days and occasions, and for this purpose, bell-ringing ceremonies are organized at Borsa İstanbul.

Borsa İstanbul decided to make available the bell-ringing ceremony, which has so far been open to publicly traded companies only, for legal persons as well. Therefore, companies are offered to get significant coverage in the visual, printed and digital media.

We frequently come across news such as “Borsa İstanbul’s bell rings for …… company today” in the press. Would you not like to get such coverage?


We offer a brand new opportunity for all companies regardless of whether their shares are traded on Borsa İstanbul. Companies may henceforth organize bell-ringing ceremonies on special occasions such as anniversaries, mergers/acquisitions, product launch, etc. at the opening or closing of Borsa İstanbul Equity Market, and ring the opening or closing bell.

Bell-ringing ceremonies will be open for not companies only, but other organizations (professional associations, sectoral and regional associations, chambers, etc.) as well, so that it will be possible to celebrate special days and occasions at Borsa İstanbul, ensuring a stronger and wider coverage in the visual and printed media.


In addition to interview areas, sound and light effects, photo and video shooting, press and media services, master of ceremonies, PR services, Borsa İstanbul allocates the foyer area and offers catering services. Any additional services may be provided by Borsa İstanbul. Detailed information is available in the following links:
