Exhibitors' Opinions

We are very satisfied with SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2017. Here, we reach our core target groups and can hold a lot of high-quality discussions. In particular, we are pleased about the high internationality of the fair - on our booth, the ratio was about 50:50. The good structuring of the exhibitors' booths rounded off the experience at the fair for us. I am certain that we will be involved again in the future, too.
Robert Korte, Regional Sales Manager, FANUC Deutschland GmbH
Our impression of SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2017 is definitely positive. We encountered much higher internationality than we had originally expected. In addition to Industry 4.0 and automation processes, the subjects of occupational health and safety and environmental protection emerged as trends which are becoming ever more important. We could use the fair in order to look for and maintain the contacts to our target groups. The number and quality of the visitors to our booth were super - we are very satisfied. We will be involved in the next edition, too, even if perhaps in another order of magnitude.
Heiko Wolff, International Welding Specialist, Reuter GmbH & Co. KG
Already on the occasion of SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2013, we established a lot important contacts on the promoted joint booth for the young innovative companies. Afterwards, there was a constant rise in demand. We are represented worldwide with our highly efficient extraction technology such as the Airtower, the market leader amongst the filter towers, and have 600 units on the market in the meantime. Our participation in the leading fair this year as a single exhibitor is a premiere and we are very satisfied with the result: The inquiries had a high quality and were very interesting for us. Moreover, the visitors have surprised us with their high expertise throughout. A return in 2021 is definitely a must for us.

For us, it was something special to present all the brands from the welding technology of our group of companies with our unique Factory Style fair booth and a very open booth design to the international trade public from the world of welding and cutting. The idea behind it was to show the parent company together with our international subsidiaries and, in particular, also our affiliated companies. The aims not only of bundling and demonstrating our competence in the segment of welding technology optimally for the customers from the different branches of industry but also of making use of our own synergetic effects have proven to be worthwhile. The stream of visitors was exceptionally good and the feedback about our fair booth and about the introduced new product and process solutions even overwhelming.

SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN is the only large fair in Europe at which we are present. This year, we were involved as an exhibitor in Germany for the third time and will probably be an exhibitor also at SteelFab in 2018. The business at the fair went very well. Our expectations were met to the full and we have been able to make a lot of international contacts. The visitors came, for example, from Russia, the Netherlands and the Middle East. This year, we have been able to successfully present our new German business branch on a part of the booth.
Peter van Berkel, Operations Manager, Red-D-Arc B. V.
We are taking part in SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN every four years, and always very excited with all the leads when we go home. It is very interesting to join such a large fair and for example to see the changes in the market as well as to meet people, build or strengthen business relationships and to show our products. We make business in 50 countries, but SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN presents the most international trade fair that we take part in.
Jack Walters, President, ATTC AMERICAN TORCH TIP
As a newcomer, we have been an exhibitor on the joint booth for the young innovative companies which has been promoted by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. While we used to predominantly offer services, we could this time use a welding robot system in order to demonstrate how customer-specific installations are set up by us, what peculiarities they exhibit and what they achieve. As a result of this, we had significantly more inquiries. The subject of Industry 4.0 is becoming ever more significant because ever more functions are being integrated into the installations, for example, in order to obtain measured values for the documentation of the fabrication quality. That has high practical significance because scrap can be avoided and production standards complied with. Our expectations with regard to the fair have been met to the full and the result is very good. For us, it is the most important trade fair worldwide and the only one at which we experience immediate deals. Our own booth is planned for 2021.
Dr. Oliver Meier, Managing Director, Laser on demand GmbH
Our participation in SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN is a permanent constituent of our international marketing concept and we have been involved, so to speak, from the first hour. This year, too, we are very enthusiastic in view of the gigantic response on our booth: This year's guiding idea for our booth design related to the three Rs, "Real, Raw & Radical", which also matches our technology in a fantastic way. Our X8 flagship continues to be the highlight at the fair and enjoys the greatest popularity. The onrush on our booth was sensational and already surpassed all our expectations well before the end of the fair.
