We’re exhibiting every year, but we had a larger booth than before and showcased a car.
I feel that the total number of visitors of the show and the visitors who visited our booth both increased from the last year.

We’re famous for material and chemical products and not many people know we are in automotive field as well.

  the existing customers. I think we have achieved our goal.

  To be able to meet people whose path would have never crossed with ours otherwise. Also, most of the visitors to our booth come with clear intent and purpose.

This is our first time as an exhibitor at this expo. We were amazed at how large the crowd of customers was.
We had thought we arrived with enough materials to distribute to the visitors but it was so much more than we had expected.

Able to meet companies that we’ve never had in contact with

A very large crowd. We even had to order a re-print of our leaflets since it ran out fast. Even that ran out quick and we couldn’t pass any to some visitors on the 3rd day.
We are satisfied of the outcome.


― What appeals to you about the show?
  We provide services to both BtoB and BtoC and we were so glad to have been able to meet a lot of companies whom we wouldn’t have been able to come in contact with otherwise.
