"We are reasonably satisfied with the response we received during the show. We interacted with existing and potential customers, suppliers and business associates, which is certainly an important take-away. In addition to being a well-recognized brand all over Asia and an organized platform for the construction equipment industry of India, bauma Conexpo India has a global reach and international flavor. That is a definite plus for us, as it should be for any company operating in this sector. Events like these are important from the marketing-mix perspective, as they ensure good footfall numbers and a captive audience in our segment, which in turn has a greater chance of translating into positive leads and business orders," says Mr. Pinaki Niyogi, Vice President Manufacturing & Engineering, TIL, India.

I take this opportunity to thank the organizers for putting up a good show."
