Have you been to Austria this year just like us? At Vienna, Salzburg or Klagenfurt? Or do you prefer German cities of Munich and Leipzig? Are you fascinated by Swiss Lausanne? And what about France - Nice, Dijon, Rennes, Lyon? And furthermore Italian Bolzano or Brussels in Belgium? Or do you grasp for middle Europe - Polish Poznan or Wroclaw, Slovak Nitra and Bratislava? Or our hundred-towered Prague? All these places you could have met our exhibition stands. If you were unable to attend any of the exhibitions, feel free to read what you have missed…
At Vienna exhibition Bauen und Energie held from Feb 13 to 16 we presented our huge stand that was first introduced at fall exhibition ForArch, Prague. The exhibition stand holds four versions of our retractable terrace enclosures CORSO and took ten people three days to build. Eight official representatives did not have time to rest for four days on the area of 8 x 12 meters. And furthermore they swapped in order to be at each enclosure through the trade fair. And they of course got loads of serious contacts — this can only be described as successful exhibition, nay?
Mitteldeutsche handwerksmesse — for those who do not master German a real tongue-twister. But for us the “central Germany crafts exhibition” was a great success. It was twice as long as normal exhibitions — from Feb 15 to Feb 23 - nine days all together. The four adjacent stands were taken care of by Alukov Deutschland Managing Director Uwe Glup and our official representatives in Germany - Fischer, Ahnert, Wallach couples and Mr. Kieschnick and Schall. Also thanks to our marketing campaign running in the vicinity we were able to get more than 120 serious contacts.
By far the longest exhibition was 55th annual exhibition Batibouw in Brussels. It started with two days for community of professionals to finish after 11 days on Mar 2. The exhibition was visited by 300,000 people many of which stopped by our sister company Axess. Four salesmen taking care of them were more than happy — right at the exhibition they signed tens of enclosure contracts and planned meetings with many visitors.
The largest building and architecture fair in Central and Eastern Europe was Budma, Poznan, from Mar 11 to Mar 14. Our beloved four-stand was here too and on it we demonstrated particular CORSO retractable terrace enclosure models. To ensure visitors find our stand in the large exhibition area we placed a small CORSO stand right in front of the exhibition main entrance. There visitors were given a leaflet with our stand’s number and a list of other planned exhibitions in Poland. And the result? Visitors not only from Poland were excited, our representatives fully busy but super satisfied because the exhausting preparations were obviously a great idea and paid off well. Overall score: one of the most successful exhibitions ever.
What to add? We are looking forward to another set of exhibitions, this time in fall 2014.
