"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.

Mr. Pradeep Sharma, President, ACE, India says, "We used this platform to showcase several new models. The show helped us meet most of our targeted customers in a short span of four days, and learn a lot in the form of suggestions and improvements from our customers, especially for new launches."

We indeed had some very serious technical & business discussions with our customers and in particular were very delighted to see many Sicoma Concrete Mixers. I think with the slew of infrastructure projects likely to take off in the coming weeks, this show has turned out to be good platform for project planners and executioners to meet with equipment suppliers and end to end solution providers. I take this opportunity to thank the organizers for putting up a good show."
