ITM 2009 International Textile Machinery Exhibition has been carried out between 6-10 June 2009 with the participation of approximately 1000 leading textile technologies manufacturer companies of the world and Turkey. Totally 31.000 textile buyers including more than 4000 foreign visitors from 59 countries have visited ITM 2009 Exhibition. Textile investors especially from the Middle East countries have proved the importance and central position of textile exhibitions organized in Turkey for neighbouring countries and region once again.

Even though the fact of ITM 2009 Exhibition's opening at the weekend had been regarded as a risk by textile industrialists, it has created a positive effect for visitors coming out of the town and neighbouring countries in the first two days - 6th and 7th June - of the exhibition. Because production and purchasing managers of investor companies could go around the exhibitions comfortably and find the chance of making examinations for investments and technology renewals to do on Saturday and Sunday that are sector holidays; thus investors that have visited the exhibition on the first day of the week were more informed about how to make choices.

Foreign visitors and the Middle East Factor:
Not able to go to fairs held in Europe due to visa problems and not preferring fairs held in the Far East due to long distance, industrialists from the Middle East have showed great interest to both the local and foreign technology manufacturers in ITM 2009 Exhibition which they visited for directing their textile investments.

This interest has proved once again that there is no need to organize textile exhibitions locally in various regions and the exhibitions taking place in Turkey will attract enough interest of investors from neighbouring regions.

ITM 2009 Exhibition has had regional visitors equal to or even more than investors that will visit an exhibition held in any Middle East country. Main reasons of the serious demand from this region include; Turkey's closeness to the Middle East countries; appropriate conditions of food, accommodation, easy access of Middle East Countries to Turkey without any visa problems and similar technology choices. .

Intermediate regions and textile industry:
Tours were also organized from various textile cities of Turkey to ITM 2009 Exhibition. Besides visitors from cities like Bursa, Qorlu and Denizli, greatest interest was from Adana, Gaziantep, Kahramanmara~ and its neighbourhood. Addition to many industrialists and production/ factory authorities that have come by their cars or by plane, professional textile authorities full of 6 couches have come.

The fact that mentioned provinces are within the intermediate regions is reason of great interest from those cities. Especially technological developments increasing the quality have been preferred by the investors. Adopting the fact that the most significant way of increasing competitive power in world's textile industry is to make difference and increase quality, Turkish textile businessmen have showed special interest in finishing technologies and quality control/test devices.
