Part one of WIN - World of Industry (which is organized by Hannover-Messe Bilesim Fuarcilik A.S From 7 to 10 February 2008) attracted thousands of professionals from all over the world and from neighbouring countries to the TUYAP Fair and Congress Center, Istanbul, Turkey. Once again, this show proved to be an indispensable meeting-place for business in Eurasia and was a big success for the exhibiting companies and their brands, as well as for visiting companies and other industry professionals.

This year, ten halls were dedicated to the four manufacturing sectors of machinery, welding, surface treatment and materials handling, with 602 exhibitors from 15 countries showcasing the latest technology on a net display area of 25,184 square metres. In response to an extensive national and international promotional campaign, 46,776 visitors from 47 countries came to find out about the latest trends and innovations within the industrial sectors represented at the show.

National pavilions form an important part of the event, and this year saw Germany, Spain, South Korea and the Netherlands staging their own national group displays. There were also many individual stands with exhibitors from 15 countries, including Austria, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Iran, Italy and Taiwan. All the exhibitors were able to establish contacts with Turkish and international companies.

Another outstanding feature of this year's show was the 'Turkish - Egyptian Business Days' summit. Representatives from 37 companies, together with the Egyptian Office of Trade and Commerce, used the event as a platform for business and face-to-face meetings with Turkish manufacturers. Part of the Business Days program involved visits to local factories by Egyptian delegations.

Another highlight of Part One of WIN was the NRW Forum, organized by the German federal state of North-Rhine Westphalia. Together with mechanical engineering companies from Dortmund, Duisburg and Mönchengladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia's regional initiatives - and NRW.invest - staged a special program for the event. The NRW Forum presented the latest processes and technologies in welding and cutting, as well as new materials, and automotive surface technologies. The key element of this presentation was the display of state-of-the-art forming equipment and technologies.

The Industrial Activities Summit, which comprised a program of product presentations, seminars, forums and panel discussions held simultaneously with the show, spotlighted the latest trends and technologies of importance to the Eurasian market. Over a period of four days, professional attendees had the opportunity to obtain expert information from specialists in the machinery, welding, surface treatment and materials handling sectors.

Part One of the WIN line-up of fairs received the support of various industrial associations and trade publications. The significance of this event as a platform for business in the entire Eurasian region was underlined by the presence of 50 representatives of governmental bodies, associations and the media.

Part Two of the WIN program of industrial fairs will reflect the latest developments in the automation, electrical engineering/electronics and hydraulics/pneumatics sectors. The event will welcome an international mix of professional visitors from 28 February to 2 March 2008 at the same location, the TUYAP Fair and Congress Centre, Istanbul.
