International Engineering Fair
The fair through the participants' eyes
Success of last year's MSV is confirmed by the comments of exhibitors and distinguished guests. In his opening speech, the Minister of Industry and Trade Martin Kuba praised the fair: " I consider the Brno International Engineering Fair to be the main exhibition event of the year and I am aware of its regional and European dimension. It is an important opportunity to present Czech companies and their advanced technology not only to direct business partners but also to official representatives of the governments of countries that participate in the trade fair. It is essential that the fair also focuses on emerging markets outside Europe, countries of Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, since a government priority undoubtedly emphasizes the diversification of Czech exports. "
Exhibitors were also satisfied. "This is the 54th MSV and so far, Siemens has always been there. We have our partners at the fair – machine tool manufacturers, who exhibit our machines equipped with control systems. There is a striking great vividness here this year. It is demonstrated at first sight in a larger number of exhibitors and a larger number of accompanying activities. Some of our partners who have not been here for some years have also arrived. So, the current trend is clearly positive and follows the development of our industry as a whole,“ stated the Siemens Sales Director Jiří Karas.
Visitors were more interested in innovations and discussed contracts on-site, as confirmed by LAC company executive Jiří Crhák: "Recently we have been focused on the aluminium and non-ferrous metals foundry market. After three years of research in this area, we have developed a special holding furnace for aluminium alloy and there is great interest fair in this product at the fair also due to having received an honourable mention. We think that this year's MSV will be one of the most successful in history for us. We are exhibiting for the twenty-first time since 1992 and we have not missed once since then."
Also foreign participants were leaving with positive impressions, including Gunnar Löfstrand, owner of the Swedish company HCT: " I am very satisfied with the fair in Brno and other Swedish exhibitors expressed their views similarly. We had high attendance at our stand, your companies interested in cooperation with Swedish companies were approaching us. Based on the good experience we have had in Brno we have come the second time and we have made many new contacts."
