Exhibitor Statements Intec 2019
Be Present and Establish a Market
"We want to establish a market here in the region and are therefore actively involved in sales in the new federal states. There is nothing better than presenting at Intec in Leipzig. It works out very well. As a manufacturer of 5-axis milling machines; we see great interest in our products. You can feel the visitors' need for investment and we were able to have high-quality conversations. After Intec, we will definitely build up on the success of the fair. We are absolutely sure about that. We want to make a long-term commitment and in two years' time we will very likely be participating again as an exhibitor."
Patrick Glanzmann, Sales Manager, Reiden Technik AG
A Permanent Part of the Trade Fair Calendar
"Intec is the perfect platform for our company. We can address both national and international customers here. Our target groups are metal-machining companies, whom we also meet at the trade fair. One advantage of Intec: lots of visitors and still enough time for in-depth discussions. This is not a matter of course at every trade fair of this type. We are very satisfied. Intec has a permanent place in our trade fair calendar, especially because of the many manufacturers who exhibit here. We will definitely be back in two years."
Christian Thiele, Marketing and Corporate Communications Director, Hartmetall-Werkzeugfabrik Paul Horn GmbH
Machines Sold Directly at Trade Fair
"We have been present in Leipzig since Intec started. Regions that are important to us are represented and we enjoyed strong attendance directly at our stand. This is why we have drawn a very positive conclusion, especially because we have a great need to explain our innovations on account of our high technology output. Now that our machines are taking over more and more skilled worker tasks in an automated way, it is all the more important to determine requirements together with our trade fair audience. Our visitors were very engaged and we received many project enquir-ies. One highlight for us: We were able to sell a machine directly at the trade fair. For us, Intec was certainly worth it. We're going home with a lot of potential business contacts."
Jan Lauer, Head of Sales, Bimatec Soraluce
Technical Discussions with Order Enquiries
"Participating in the trade fair was really worth it. We are very pleased with Intec. As a family-run company with 125 years of history, we want to increase our presence in the new federal states. When it comes to milling in particular, we think there is a lot of potential and we plan to tap into it. At the trade fair we had some concrete technical discussions with reliable order enquiries. I think we can expect some business coming our way.”
Wilfried Römpp, Area Sales Manager, Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH
Intec Gaining Greater Importance
"We want to grow with our market share. Which is why Intec is becoming more and more important to us. Here we get the customer contact we need. Already after the first half of Intec, the number of customer meetings had exceeded the total number at other trade fairs. In Leipzig, we have concrete project enquiries – orders are even placed. We are very satisfied and were very successful with our trade fair participa-tion. Intec has developed well. We expect to participate again."
Martin Sprung, Manager Marketing & Business Development, ZCC Cutting Tools Europe GmbH
Concrete Projects Discussion
"Originally, our aim was to present our products to customers from East Germany. We were pleased that we could also have good discussions with companies from all over Germany and Switzerland. The strong interest at our stand shows us that the catchment area of the Intec is growing. In some cases, customers came to our stand several times to discuss specific orders. We'll wrap these up after the trade fair. We plan to attend the next edition again because, by the second day of the trade fair, we had already reached the attendance level of the entire previous event."
Matthias Funk, CEO, Hedelius Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH
Entire Production Chain Presented
"At Intec, our company aims to speak to both existing and new customers, some-thing that works very well at the trade fair. In Leipzig, we showed visitors the entire production chain - cutting, bending, welding and customisation - on a single compo-nent, which they were able to take with them. This was well received and led to many concrete follow-up inquiries. We have the feeling that our brand is well known. Nevertheless, not all visitors are familiar with our entire product range. We can easily change that at Intec."
Marcel Schön, Project Management International Sales Laser Systems, TRUMPF Laser- und Systemtechnik GmbH
Intec has Grown Significantly
"With three regional representatives, it makes sense for us as a manufacturer to have our own stand. As a longtime exhibitor, Intec is one of the most important trade fairs for us. We are delighted that it has grown considerably over the past few years. We'll be back in two years. There's no reason to miss it. This is where we connect with our existing customers and many new ones. Some of the discussions are very concrete and convert to new business after the trade fair."
Eberhard Betsch, Team Leader Sales, KASTO Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG
Meeting Place for Mid-sized Companies and Global Players
"A total of seven companies presented their manufacturing network at the stand. Intec really suits our range of services and our target customers throughout Germa-ny. It's a perfect match. We meet a wide range of medium-sized companies and global players. We will take part again in two years.”
Hans-Peter Weise, Executive Board, Das Fertigungsnetzwerk
Initial Business Contacts Work Out
"Intec is very important in Eastern Germany and is situated exactly in our local envi-ronment. This is reflected both in the response of the stand visitors, who come to us with clear questions, and in their deliberate contact with us. Initiating business here works very well, frequently leading to further orders in the subsequent stages of the trade fair."
Christian Mirring, Branch Manager, Yamazaki Mazak Deutschland GmbH
"Our goal at Intec was clear. We wanted to promote our products, increase aware-ness of our brand and acquire new clients. All of it worked out. We are already talk-ing about specific projects with many top-class interested parties and can therefore say that the trade fair was a success".
Frank Mergl, Sales Manager, Nicolás Correa Deutschland GmbH
Traditionally Good Progress
"The trade fair in Leipzig turned out well. Both the premises and the hotel infrastruc-ture are excellent. At Intec, we traditionally do very well and also have a positive outcome for this year. This is where we kick off further discussions, which are often followed by concrete orders. We are very satisfied with both the quantity and the professional quality of the visitors."
Gunther Borbonus, Managing Director, MTE Deutschland GmbH
Satisfied with Talks
"Intec is a fascinating trade fair where we primarily speak to our customers from Saxony and Thuringia. We have been well established on the market for years and, here in Leipzig, we are mainly able to meet with our existing customers. We have been exhibiting for many years and present our tools for metal cutting and an exten-sive service range. We are very satisfied with the conversations we had. We'll be back in two years for sure."
Manfred Müller, Sales Manager / Authorised Officer, Ceratizit Group
Positive Development of Intec Is Noticeable
"At our stand, we demonstrated the technology integration that we have been able to achieve over the past two years. In particular, we are delighted to have been awarded the Intec-Award for our performance. The trade fair here in Leipzig is our own backyard exhibition. This is where we cultivate our customers, networks and hold discussions with suppliers. This year, the event was again very successful for us. We made good contacts and look forward to concrete enquiries, many of which we will certainly be able to successfully follow up on. What was particularly positive was the fact that Intec's further development is noticeable. It's getting more and more attention and attracting exhibitors from Germany and beyond."
Susanne Witt, Managing Partner, metrom Mechatronische Maschinen GmbH
Romanian Secretary of State on Duty
"We confirm that the trade fair went well. Both the number of visitors and the quality of contacts are consistent. We were able to make excellent connections and have numerous discussions with excellent potential customers. The visit of the Romanian State Secretary to our stand at the fair deserves a special mention. The timing of the fair was also ideal. We had consciously looked for a spring trade fair and have been very happy to be at Intec ever since. We'll be attending the next event."
Sina Bille, Marketing, StM Waterjet solutions
Exact Sales Region
"We have been exhibiting at Intec from the very beginning and we particularly ap-preciate the fact that this is exactly our sales area. It is unbelievably efficient. We can reach a broad audience here and are generating an increasing number of supra-regional contacts. These discussions cover the entire spectrum - from general interest to concrete projects. I firmly believe that we will participate again."
Jürgen Kindt, Sales Electric Drives and Controls, Germany North, Bosch Rexroth AG
