Statements:

"We only started two years ago to join LogiMAT Stuttgart as exhibitors, so for us the show is a pretty new thing even in Germany, too. Considering this is the first show of LogiMAT China, I am pretty much surprised that there are so many visitors. In my opinion it is a good place to start business in China. Therefore the decision to come here was completely right, and we will certainly come back to LogiMAT."

"The market in China is growing very fast, especially in the field of intralogistics. There is a huge potential for us and so we decided to join the exhibition in Nanjing especially the LogiMAT China. In my opinion the first 5 hours of the show were very good. Most of the contacts we had seem close to order. This is the most important thing for us. I think we will exhibit again."

"In Germany, we had a very good cooperation with LogiMAT which is a very mature and professional platform to present our latest products and promote our brand. Regarding LogiMAT China in Nanjing, the exhibition offers targeted focus. We also appreciate the offered supporting program and are sure that we will be part of it in the future.

We were able to get in touch with quite a lot of customers with serious ordering and purchasing intentions. We are satisfied with the outcome of the show. The visitors to the show have shown great professionalism as well as purchasing power. Moreover, we found that exhibitors from neighboring booths were true experts in their fields, so we were able to learn from each other. We are looking forward to further cooperation with other exhibitors and LogiMAT China."

LogiMAT is an important show for us in Europe, and now we'll have a look at LogiMAT here in China. For us, it's a good opportunity to develop a feeling for the market and to test the need of the market for the intralogistics systems we offer. I think LogiMAT is the best intralogistics show and the customers can get a complete overview of intralogistics systems. Systems that also our company can supply.

Andreas Ebert, Managing Director

We know LogiMAT in Germany very well and our aim is to test for our company if we will have our own area here maybe next year, I'm looking for different kinds of forklifts, different kinds of transport equipment and different kinds of vertical conveyer solutions. In my opinion, it is worth to be here. I like the show, it is interesting. LogiMAT is a one-stop solution show for everything we do.

In Japan, it is impossible for us to see this wide range of products and gather knowledge about how it works, so I flew from Osaka to Nanjing for LogiMAT China. And the show is worth a visit. I am looking forward to seeing more equipment, products and on-site demo-presentations.

I think the show and the conference are a good opportunity and platform to exchange our experience with our customers and to show our technologies to the customers. Many people are very interested in this conference. One customer just discussed highly technical air issues with me. Visitors are very professional, and the questions they ask are very professional. I think it is a very good conference.

Zhou Qi, Product Manager

Two thirds of our products are exported into 150 countries all over the world. LogiMAT China takes place for the first time, so the scale of the exhibition is limited, but we met with high quality customers like FAW-Volkswagen and Procter & Gamble. Yesterday, even friends from Jungheinrich came to our booth. The show exceeded all our expectations. We hope LogiMAT China will become even better, and we will certainly be part of it next year.

Ruyi Forklift Joint Stock Co. Ltd.

The difference between companies and us is the material we collect. The information source we touch is different. Here we can get a perfect overview of innovative state-of-the-art applications offered world-wide. We can forecast the future tendency based on the current technology presented by the exhibitors. Moreover we are able to point out the development direction for companies. Conferences like this in combination with the trade show are very important not only to combine theory with practice, but also to present the future.
