More than 70,000 people attended the WIN EURASIA Automation 2015 expo in Istanbul last month.

The 77,244 visitors had the opportunity to view robotic arms that mimic animals, unmanned vehicles racing through warehouses, and energy-saving pump systems at the exhibition that consisted of four trade fairs: Otomasyon EURASIA, Materials Handling EURASIA, Hydraulic & Pneumatic EURASIA, and Electrotech EURASIA. The entire show covered industrial automation, materials handling and logistics, fluid power, and energy and electrotechnology, respectively.

"Turkey provides access to 1.5 billion customers in Europe, Eurasia, the Middle East and North Africa - markets that together represent USD25 trillion of GDP," says Wolfgang Pech, senior vice president at show organizer Deutsche Messe AG. "WIN is a showcase for global players as well as small and medium-sized companies. More than 77,000 visitors - including delegations from Algeria, Egypt, Germany, Libya, Palestine, and Tunisia - came to WIN because they know it is Eurasia's innovation platform."

Of the 1,581 exhibiting companies from 21 countries that showcased their products and services, 156 exhibitors participated across 3,519 sqm (37,878 sqft.) of exhibition space for Materials Handling EURASIA.

The materials handling show spotlighted the range and flexibility of unmanned warehousing solutions that use smart navigation and sensors to autonomously control movement and avoid collisions.

Wilfried Baur, managing director of Jungheinrich Turkey, explains: "Turkey's logistics market, which is growing at about 15% annually, is very important for us.

"Our customers include national companies as well as European and international companies with operations in Turkey, such as Bauhaus, Mercedes and Metro, so we see Turkey as an important bridge between Europe and Asia. We focused on three areas at Materials Handling EURASIA: diesel vehicles, warehousing technology and customer service."

The first Materials Handling EURASIA was held in 2002 over 1,330 sqm (14,316 sqft.) of floor space.

WIN Automation EURASIA is organised by Hannover Messe Bilesim Fuarcilik AS, Deutsche Messe's subsidiary in Turkey, and belongs to Deutsche Messe's Hannover Messe worldwide portfolio, which includes events in Brazil, Canada, China, India, Italy, and the United States. WIN Automation EURASIA 2016 is scheduled for 17-20 March in Istanbul.
