Exhibitors’ impressions about MIMS powred by Automechanika Moscow

MTA S . p . A .  Irina Korjavina ,  Commercial  &  Technical Cooperator

The exhibition was very productive for our company. We had many fruitful meetings and a lot of visitors at our booth during all days of the show. I would like to mention the quality of visitors – most of them were professionals of the industry and buyers. The show was organized very professionally. It’s also good, that this year MIMS powered by Automechanika Moscow started earlier, so visitors who came from far away regions of Russia managed to see both exhibitions. We are glad about our participation in the show and I think we should exhibit next year. The final decision will be made by the company owners later.

We are very glad about our participation in MIMS powered by Automechanika Moscow. Our company has been presenting our air suspension products at a big booth with really nice design. We had a lot of professional visitors and fruitful talks at our booth during the show. MIMS powered by Automechanika Moscow was organized at high professional level. I think next year we will be exhibiting again.

AISIN EUROPE S.A., Nataila Duda, Area Sales representative

For me personally it’s not the first time at MIMS powered by Automechanika Moscow, our company has been participating several years in the row, and I can see how the show is progressing. The show attracts very professional visitors, not only from Moscow. We’ve met visitors from Russian regions and neighboring countries at our stand. Another good thing about the show, that it gives us a chance to meet not only our key clients, but also end consumers – representatives of car service stations and to find out their opinion about our products and our distributers’ work.  This year our company also participated in the business program within the framework of the exhibition. I think we will continue exhibiting next year.

We had very productive work at the exhibition, during 4 days we had many meetings with our regular and potential clients. Our goals was promoting out brand for the Russian market. We have been planning our participation in advance and invited a lot of partners to visit our stand. Meeting clients from the Russian regions during the exhibition was very important for our company. The organizers were very attentive and provided good support during our preparations.

Hastings Manufacturing Company

Thomas J. DeBlasis, Vice President, Business Development

We found the show to be quite busy, at our booth there was a lot of activity, a lot of interest in our products. The visitors at our booth were mostly from Russia, but we also had a few visitors from neighboring countries – Ukraine and distributors from Belarus, primarily from Russia, but also from far extents of the Russian territory, so lots of people came from a long distance away to visit the show. They were business oriented, many of them had they own machine shops or engine shop – they were interested in our piston rings, but we’ve also met stores representatives and end distributors -  a good mix of clientele.

We see that the market is very good here in Russia and in the former Soviet countries for our product – Hastings Piston Rings. We had many good contacts at the show and we will be back next year.
