WIN - World of Industry Part 2 closed its doors with strong international participation and high level of qualified visitors. During 4 days, 704 exhibitors and 777 co-exhibitors from 26 countries presented their products and services to industry professionals coming from Turkey and neighboring regions.
Second part of WIN - World of Industry was held between 29th March – 1st April 2012 in TÜYAP Fair and Congress Center in Istanbul with the support of 74 sectoral associations and organizations. At the fair, thousands of products and services related to Machinery, Automation, Electrotech and Hydraulic & Pneumatic sectors were introduced to the industry professionals.
This year’s show proved once again that WIN Fairs are still an ideal platform to introduce new products and ideas to the industry professionals especially to Turkish and Eurasian markets. The satisfaction of exhibitors and trade visitors was at high level. The fair hosted direct exhibitors from 26 countries and 116.925 visitors from 84 countries around the world. They were in a good mood as a result of welcoming high qualified visitors at their booths not only from Turkey, from neighboring countries as well. International exhibitors of the show came from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, South Korea, Netherlands, Romania, Spain, South Africa, Taiwan and Turkey.
The official representative Ms. Ann-Catrin Rehermann from VDMA Power Transmission Engineering and Fluid Power Associations stated on behalf of German exhibitors: “Turkey is the most important market for the German industry in the Eurasian market. Over the years, business relationship between Turkish and German companies improved, and we know about a lot of fruitful co-operations. Within only one year the exports from German products of power transmission engineering and fluid power to Turkey are again on the same level as before the worldwide economic crisis. For us, WIN World of Industry is the most important trade fair in the Eurasian region for creating good business and long-lasting relationships and we’re very pleased to come back next year.”
WIN – World of Industry Part 2 continued to be the meeting point of national and international exhibitors with buyer delegates invited especially from neighboring countries by the organizer and as well as Undersecretariat of Foreign Trade (DTM).
