Exhibitor statements about lighting technology 2017

lighting technology 2017 exhibitor feedback

KHATOD OPTOELECTRONIC S.R.L., Christian Todaro, International Sales Manager:

A promising exhibition with good contacts, and a broad and interesting range on offer from the exhibiting companies. A real users’ exhibition with enough time for in-depth discussions with both old and new customers.

PHOENIX CONTACT Deutschland GmbH, Bernd Immich, Distribution Marketing for PCB and Device Connection Technology:

We were very satisfied with the turnout. We got to speak to the right contact people in the light manufacturing companies, and in particular, within our target group - Smartcity. Essen is the ideal location for the event and lighting technology a perfect addition to the existing exhibition calendar. We wanted to be there from the start and that was exactly the right decision for us.

Turck duotec GmbH, Michael Cremer, Sales Engineer:

Very good exhibition premiere with great potential for the future.

Drees GmbH, Benjamin Deimann, Sales Manager:

The quality of the discussions were first-class and exceeded our expectations.

Neumüller Elektronik GmbH, Matthias Prochnow, LED Technologies and Systems Management:

We tend to go for targeted exhibitions, so decided this was an event for us. The combination of trade fair and workshops is ideal and we weren’t just one company amongst many others in several halls. We made good and relevant contacts and everything ran perfectly, for example the organisation and the promotional campaign. So for us the whole concept worked brilliantly and the premiere provided a solid start and great opportunities for further development.

MAVOM GmbH, Wolfgang Fischer, Sales Engineer:

Unexpectedly positive for a first exhibition which exceeded our expectations. Very interesting, result-oriented discussions with new customers and a great atmosphere!

STEINEL Solutions AG, Christian Hänggi, Business Development Manager:

A perfect premiere! We made direct contact with existing and new customers in both large and small companies. Unlike at large exhibitions, we met interesting visitors and had targeted technical discussions. The atmosphere was really relaxed and there was plenty of time for discussions with customers. Essen as a location is ideal – we haven’t once regretted exhibiting at the premiere.

Fischer Elektronik GmbH & Co. KG, Jürgen Harpain, Head of Development:

Small but perfectly formed – keep it up and don’t lose sight of the exhibitors!

protronic Innovative Steuerungselektronik GmbH, Henrik Müller, Marketing:

A new exhibition focussing on a topic that will change the world: lighting! If it continues to be well organised and promoted, this will be a really special lighting fair.

m.a.l. Effekt Technik GmbH, Martin Weide, Sales & Marketing Director:

This was an exhibition with innovative and future oriented topic areas. High value visitors allowed us to make promising new contacts. We’ll be back!

We were pleasantly surprised by the positive and valuable exchanges we had. Thank you!
