The fair was a success, from the first hours after its opening until the end of the event and we managed to make several deals. It is good that the WOOD-TEC fair takes place once in two years. This gives the firms a chance and time to come to the trade fair with some innovations. And it is also important for the customers who attend this event. Being a good fair, WOOD-TEC has enormous prestige, it has developed into an international fair. For example, this year we got visited by our business friends from abroad. We can never be missing in Brno, it is also about building our image.
Petr Janů, Business
Manager, TKZ Polná, spol. s r.o.
We are highly satisfied with the WOOD-TEC fair this year. Our exhibit in the hall was visited by a number of potential customers who we held discussions with. I believe that once we evaluate the event, it will bring an economic effect for the company. We need to present ourselves in Brno as this is the place where our long-term customers look for us and this also improves the company’s image. Furthermore, we had a number of business meetings.
Tomáš Vystyd, Executive
in FELDER Group CZ
It has been confirmed that our company took the right decision by opting for a larger exhibition space for our presentation at the WOOD-TEC fair than in the previous editions. This enabled us to show the customers who we are and what our broad production programme covers. In our stand we introduced 75 machines this year. The intention of our company in Brno has come off, we are satisfied.
Michal Vodák, Head of
Sales Department, Dřevo materiál
We established a number of new contacts at the fair. Our exhibition stand was full all the time, and a large number of new potential customers showing great interest in our products arrived. I would also like to highlight the good facilities provided by Hall F. The fair suited us in all respects. We are satisfied with our participation in the fair.
Jiří Mynař, Owner of
I am very pleasantly surprised by the Brno WOD-TEC fair as similar events around the world face a low number of visitors and represented brands. Our stand was visited by a number of visitors who are also potential customers. We are glad that we could show them our cutting-edge machines in operation and introduce the world-class innovation MANUAL RAMBO from our production portfolio. Naturally, we held meetings with our business partners in Brno.
Zdeněk Holub, Director
of STM s.r.o.
The fair met the objective with which the firm arrived in Brno. We held meetings with our customers here and introduced our innovations to them. We were visited by a number of professional visitors who came to ask specific questions and requirements.
David Dvořáček, Executive
of PILART s.r.o.
We are satisfied with the fair, it met our objective. We are one of the largest exhibitors and we showcase all our machines in operation. And this is one of the reasons why our stand was in high demand and of course we established new contacts. We held meetings with our business partners right at the exhibition centre.
Jaroslav Německý, Sales
Representative, ASAMER, spol. s r.o.
For our company the trade fair was a success. The objective we set for ourselves was fulfilled, we pre-negotiated a number of contracts with both existing and new potential customers. The meetings were held in our exhibition stand almost continuously. We are satisfied.
Malloni, Tekma spol. s r.o.
The firm is very happy with the trade fair. We were visited by a large number of people, the exhibition stand was virtually chock-a-block full. Throughout the fair we had meetings with the customers. We will see what financial effects the participation will bring, I definitely did not expect this in Brno, the fair was simply a success.
Daniel Fo řt, manager in Schachermayer
Our participation in the WOOD-TEC fair met the objectives we arrived in Brno with, which is to offer comprehensive services that should result in long-term cooperation. We also wanted to show trades people and plant owners our state-of-the-art logistics which enables considerably cost reductions. Our exhibit was full of people all the time, we are satisfied with the fair.
