Exhibitor Statements CosmeticBusiness Poland 2019
Paweł Musiał, Business Development Manager, Invanto:
CosmeticBusiness Poland was our first exhibition where we were present as an exhibitor and our targets were exceeded. We were particularly pleased with the number and quality of the discussions we had. Young companies and people from the cosmetics and cleaning industry as well as representatives from the fields of research and development - i.e. the very people we wanted to address - came to our stand many times. We welcomed visitors not only from Poland, but also from Hungary, China and France. All of which proved, that exhibiting at CosmeticBusiness Poland 2019 was the right decision.
Petra Liebert, Export Manager, PACKIT GmbH:
For the first time we decided to present at CosmeticBusiness Poland because we want to grow in eastern Europe. CosmeticBusiness's trade fair concept that is tailored to the cosmetic industry has impressed us for many years in Munich. Our experience there, made deciding to come to CosmeticBusiness Poland in Warsaw simple. I have to say that we were positively surprised by the response. We made a lot of new contacts and received very concrete, target-oriented enquiries from qualified trade visitors. In addition to Polish companies, we were also pleased to welcome visitors from Lithuania and Latvia as well. Should the post-event follow-up be as positive as this, nothing will stand in the way of our participation next year.
Michael Pfeiffer, Managing Director, Pfeiffer Consulting GmbH:
Last year we ventured into the Polish market by taking part in CosmeticBusiness Poland, and therefore it was all the more important for us to present ourselves again at this year's event and build trust. By focusing our consulting services on opening up international markets, in particular the USA, Canada and Asia, this year we were even more successful and were able to establish high-quality contacts with Polish companies. There were also exciting international parties interested in settling in Poland and looking for implementation partners. To sum it up we are very satisfied with the trade fair results and plan to be there again next year.
Katarzyna Piątek, Managing Director, Polpak Packaging:
We consider CosmeticBusiness Poland to be one of the most important platforms for our industry in Poland - a fact that was again apparent this year. We had hundreds of visitors at our stand alone, and more than a hundred enquiries from companies with which we have never worked before. In this respect, a great deal of potential for long-term cooperation is already emerging. We were also happy with the quality of the discussions. We were surprised, that so many visitors came from western Eu-rope. About half of the visitors that came to our stand were from abroad. No one came to our stand by accident, everyone who came was a representative of cos-metic and cleaning products companies. And that is our target group.
