Partners' and exhibitors' comments
"COMPOSITES EUROPE is a big success story. Moving the trade fair to Düsseldorf really hit the mark."
Volker Fritz, EuCIA President
"Compared to other important sales and application markets for composites, Germany is recording good growth figures this year."
Dr. Elmar Witten, Managing Director, AVK
"So as to demonstrate the strength of the German mechanical and plant engineering sector as a technology supplier, we have quite specifically chosen COMPOSITES EUROPE as our presentation platform. As the new partner of the trade fair, the VDMA Forum Composites is very satisfied. Visitor quality at COMPOSITES EUROPE was excellent. Especially the accompanying presentation programme at the Composites Forum was very well received. We could generate a large number of contacts there."
Dr. Walter Begemann, Project Manager, Forum Composite Technology, VDMA
"High visitor quality, good organisation - we are very satisfied with our first presentation at COMPOSITES EUROPE. For our member companies, the trade fair was also a great success."
Patrick Markert, Head of Main Office, CFK- Valley Stade e.V.
"All the important customers - primarily from the automotive sector - came to see us at our stand. Discussions at COMPOSITES EUROPE 2012 went very well. We can see that the trend towards lightweight construction is continuing. We therefore feel we are well positioned for the future with our fibre-reinforced plastics technology."
Hans-Joachim Schwindenhammer, Sales Director, DIEFFENBACHER GmbH
"We have been exhibitors at COMPOSITES Europe for the past seven years and have grown as the trade fair grew. Now we are happy that the fair moved to Düsseldorf. That makes a generous hall layout possible. We are satisfied with the contacts at our stand. And we look forward to Stuttgart 2013!"
Roswita Bongard, PULTEX Kunststofftechnikhandel GmbH
"COMPOSITES EUROPE 2012 provides a good platform for high-quality contacts. Visitor quality is improving every year. The good organisation and continuous development of the trade fair concept make this trade fair "the" composites fair in Europe. The industry itself will have to place of stronger focus on the recyclability of raw materials in the near future to enable the application of composites to become established with many types and varieties and in a wide range of industries."
Klaus-Peter Welsch, Head of Sales and IT, Geiss AG
"At COMPOSITES EUROPE 2012 we met the right contacts and received a large number of direct project inquiries. Among the visitors to our stand were Boeing, Swarovski, Netsch, AMG, Hörmann and Ferrari. In our view, the development of the composites industry shows an upward trend. The development of new processes and further automation are important topics at present. The sector will establish itself as a permanent industry."
Max Hacker, Proprietor, BR Composites
"COMPOSITES EUROPE records a large number of trade visitors and industry insiders. The trade fair was a complete success for us this year. We made valuable and reliable contacts here. The presentation of our company here will therefore continue to be a must in the years to come."
Christian Gemperlein, Managing Director, all ahead composites GmbH
"We met all the people expected but also some new prospective customers. We will expose at COMPOSITES EUROPE 2013 in Stuttgart."
M. Toschi, Delta-Tech SpA
