We had a very fascinating experience at KazBuild, because it was our first time participating and we were really proud to enter the Kazakhstan market with a brand like Albert Genau. We were very enthusiastic about the product demonstrations at the stand, and we were very pleased with the interest from our visitors. We ran out of product catalogs on the very first day; we had not even expected such a rush. I would like to note the level of organization, during COVID19 all sanitary measures are observed, the organizers support the visitors during the whole period of participation. The audience of the exhibition is absolutely target-oriented, people come with clear inquiries in relation to our type of business. Here you can find both end customers and dealers of the products. We hope that next year we will be able to participate with a larger stand and together with our partners from Turkey.
Certainly, despite the break, the exhibition in 2021 is quite successful for us. We have established new contacts and met potential customers. It is fairly safe to say that this exhibition has greatly contributed to the development of our company. The portrait of our client is quite well defined, such people come here directly and clearly understand their goals. Business has woken up after the pandemic and people are actively coming to the exhibition, doing construction and are actively interested in our products. A great merit in this and thanks directly to the organizers of this exhibition, because there is excitement, there is a result, and that is the main thing! The access system is perfectly organized, and everyone works smoothly. We are planning to exhibit at KazBuild 2022, too, to make a name for ourselves again and showcase all the latest products and services!
To date, our company is extremely happy with the results of the two days of the exhibition. The flow of potential target customers is very large, on the very first day each company of our collective stand received at least two new contacts for further cooperation. Five manufacturing companies from Udmurtia represented at the stand are ready to export their products to the Kazakhstan market and are planning to find “the right customer” at the exhibition. Definitely every company has experienced a certain decline during the pandemic, but this did not affect our decision to participate in KazBuild 2021. The exhibition was attended by so many companies from related sectors and our direct competitors, which definitely has a positive effect on the exchange of experience between us. I would like to highlight the full compliance with sanitary and epidemiological norms, both at the entrance and inside the pavilions. We are planning our participation in KazBuild 2021 next year, but the final decision depends on the number of export contracts signed.
At the KazBuild Exhibition we found many customers who were interested in our products and are ready to work with us. We have already noted for ourselves the options for long-term cooperation. There are many construction companies at the exhibition who are interested in our products and want to expand their cooperation horizons. Our company is growing and developing rapidly; we have offices in Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, and have finally expanded to the Kazakhstan market. The results of our participation have exceeded our expectations and we want to come again in 2022 to find partnerships not only in Almaty but throughout Kazakhstan. The organization meets all European standards, we have something to compare it with, so we can safely note the first-class efforts of the KazBuild Team.
This is not the first time our company presents its products at the exhibition; thus, we position ourselves as a strong manufacturer of quality building materials: thermal insulation and waterproofing. Visitors show active interest, we make new acquaintances and develop partnerships here. After the pandemic it is difficult to return to the former scale of the exhibition, but taking into consideration the break time and the pandemic, the exhibition is well organized. We have decided to take part in KazBuild 2021, to show our clients and partners that our company is still strong and competitive. Next year, 2022, we will also gladly take part!
Expectations from participation in the exhibition were not only met, but even exceeded the expected outcome. We haven't participated in expo events for two years due to the pandemic, and we were very worried that there would not be many visitors, but the quantity and quality of the audience was simply amazing. During the three days of the exhibition, we had a lot of efficient meetings with prospects of cooperation and several clients decided to sign a contract with us already at the exhibition. Our profile is project organizations and engineering companies, about 50% of the visitors are our audience. Slovakia and Kazakhstan have long been developing international relations, and Kazakhstan is a very promising and developing market for Slovakia. Slovak companies need such a serious and important international partner. I would like to highlight the well-coordinated work and organization of KazBuild 2021.
