Exhibitor Statements Z 2019
Important Presentation Platform
"This is our first trade fair appearance as a leading electroplating company and a young corporation that combines the capabilities of various companies under one roof. In Leipzig, we will introduce our new portfolio and present our wide range of processes and locations. Z is a very important presentation platform, which also worked in our favour during the fair. Customers came with concrete needs, and we were able to provide concrete answers. We are definitely satisfied with our participation at the trade fair and will now be able to consistently expand our business."
Nicolai A. J. Baum, CEO, KAP Surface Holding GmbH
Straight to Personal Contacts
"For us as machinists, there are few ways to present ourselves. For this reason, Z is ideal for us and proves to have great potential. We are positively surprised. The quality of the audience is very good. We were able to have good technical discussions, which will certainly also lead to business later on. In contrast to the usual sales research, we get personal contacts to our target group at the subcontracting fair. We took part in Z for the first time and draw a very positive conclusion".
Jochen Klein, Sales Manager, wafi Walter Fischer GmbH & Co. KG
"The exhibitors at the joint company stand of the Saxon Chambers of Industry and Commerce were very satisfied with this year's Z. The discussions at the trade fair were very good and engaging. The CONTACT Business Meetings we held were also a complete success. Over 230 B2B meetings were held, which is a record for this format, and should definitely be maintained in my opinion. A compliment is also due to Leipziger Messe for the excellent organisation of the trade fair."
Mario Bauer, Managing Director Services, Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) Leipzig
Returning in 2021
"With our second visit to the Z we, as a Hungarian company, wanted to further expand our business contacts in the new federal states and face the competition. Presenting our overall capabilities and delivery times, as well as our price-performance ratio in particular, was very well received by the trade visitors. We will continue to follow up the many promising contacts we made and already know that we will be exhibiting at Z in 2021."
András Csikós, CEO, Meta-Vulk Kft
Renewed Stand Expansion
"We already had a joint stand at Z two years ago and achieved great success with it. For this reason, we have expanded our presence again for this year's event - and we are happy about the very good conversations we were able to have. Numerous potential enquiries, which promise good post-fair business relations, allow us to draw positive conclusions from the trade fair.
Christian Anschütz, Managing Director, METECH Zella-Mehlis GmbH
Experience how the Market Works
"The discussions held here at the stand were very multifaceted. We received concrete enquiries and had interesting technical discussions. Here at Z, we present plastic parts for the automotive and non-automotive industries and at the same time experience how the market works. We are taking numerous contacts from Leipzig with us for further post-processing. We have achieved our goals. We are satisfied with our first participation in the trade fair."
Melanie Möbius, Sales/Project Management, Würfel Kunststofftechnik GmbH
Right Place, Right Time
"We have been represented in the region as thyssenkrupp since the early 1990s. For this reason, Z is a good platform for presenting our stock and our range of services. We are in the right place at the right time here. From the very first day, we had a good number of visitors to our stand and held goal-oriented discussions - both with existing customers and prospective ones. Excellent synergies are generated through the link with Intec. Many of our customers are also exhibitors there. We will definitely be back in two years."
Frank Schleicher, District Manager Services East, thyssenkrupp Schulte GmbH
Czech Foundries with Strong Business Prospects
"At Z, we cultivate our long-standing cooperation, which has grown historically due to regional proximity. The conversations we had confirmed that existing projects with companies from Germany will continue. Our company's volume of orders is very high, and the excellent opportunities to initiate business here in Leipzig play a major role in this. We are already planning so we can present ourselves even better at Z in two years' time."
Josef Hlavinka, Chairman of the Association, Czech Association of Foundries
New Business Generated
"We are very pleased. At Z, we can meet with our customers and generate new business. We are able to follow up on the enquiries in the aftermath of the trade fair. This was a very successful event. We expect to participate again."
Jürgen Werner, Authorised Officer, Galvanotechnische Oberflächen GmbH
Czech Ministry: Network Expansion
"Z is a very important B2B platform for Czech companies. Participation in the trade fair has proven itself over many years and is very important to us. Our companies know that they can do real business here and that they can continue to strengthen contacts in Leipzig. We will also be represented at the next trade fair in two years' time to get an overview of the companies located in the region, to expand our network and to demonstrate what Czech companies are capable of. We are ready."
Vera Fouskova, Czech Ministry of Industry and Commerce
"new mobility" Expert Forum
"Participants were very impressed by the information VW provided about conversion measures at the Zwickau plant, where more than 300,000 electric vehicles will be produced exclusively every year. I believe that this plant will be a beacon for e-mobility. During the event, it was also demonstrated that, in the context of mobility change, there will be both positive results and serious challenges for companies. The examples from the manufacturing and subcontracting industries have also impressively demonstrated how to deal with the opportunities and challenges in a concrete way."
Dr Jens Katzek, Managing Director, ACOD GmbH (Host of the specialist forum "new mobility")
