“For us there was no question that if DeburringEXPO would be staged as an on-site event, we would exhibit and present ourselves as a solutions provider for tasks in the field of deburring and precision finishing. And it was the right decision, because we were able to talk to existing customers about upcoming projects and their plans, and generate interesting new leads. We’re quite satisfied with the way things went at the trade fair,” stated Maria Loula, managing director of Perfect Finish GmbH.
“Fortunately, DeburringEXPO has remained with us as an up-to-date information platform. Not only does it provide a quick and adequate overview of new products, trends and innovations in the industry, it also facilitates an effective exchange of information with other exhibitors. For me, there couldn’t have been a better way to start participation at the trade fair”, declared Igor Pleis, sales manager at ATL Anlagentechnik Luhden GmbH.
