Kazbuild / WorldBuild Almaty 2017 exhibitors' opinion (VIDEO)
Mahmut Serkan Yildiz, director of business development Teksan:
Well, the exhibition is going very well this year. People seem to come; there are many people. I can say that we have been here for more than 8 years now. Every year we participate in this exhibition, because it is the main exhibition for construction. We like it, only we did not participate last year, due to the economic crisis. This year we decided to participate because we are Kazakhstan producers, so we are here. We also have factories here and in China, there are plants and factories in Turkey. And we as a Kazakhstan company participate in 9 countries. We have our own branch, as a Kazakh company. We are happy to be here and we will participate here every year.
Bakhtiyar Nurmatov, regional sales manager (for Central Asia) Akzo Nobel:
This is our first experience as Akzo Nobel for participation in Kazbuild in Kazakhstan. I would like to note the high level of organization, the organizers are very professional, the approach is very professional, staff helped with every our appeal. I liked that there are many participants at this exhibition this year and the participants are diverse, these are local Kazakh companies, foreign companies. Many beautiful, interesting stands. 1.5 days as the exhibition started, goes, and we already had time to talk with many designers. Well, our target audience is our regional clients, partners, with whom we already cooperate. This is a platform for dialogue, for meetings. The purpose of our participation at the Kazbuild exhibition is to make a statement about ourselves, to show our achievements, to show our concept store "Dulux" color workshop. Well, we received only very good, positive reviews. We hope that after this exhibition we will have a lot of new contacts and clients in Kazakhstan and the regions of Central Asia. I have no doubt that after the exhibition we will have new contacts and new clients in Kazakhstan, and in the regions of Central Asia.
Shermakanov Erkin, wholesale sales manager "Keramin astana":
I think that this year exhibition presents much more visitors. I estimate the organizers even on a scale of 10 points. We have already achieved nice results and we hope to collect more customers. The level of organization is high. When we started talking with the organizers, they found many solutions for us, that is, where it would be convenient for us, i.e. they picked us a very good place, of course, thanks for that!
Sizova Julia, designer-decorator "Bella Mattina":
Good afternoon, we represent the Chuvash Republic, we are representatives of the furniture group and we also produce interesting exclusive doors. In your exhibition we participate for the first time, the exhibition is very interesting to us, as cooperation, infinitely gives us some opportunities for development. Well organized.
We liked this exhibition very much, the work is quite productive. People are interesting, it's interesting to talk, everything's fine! We are now striving to conclude contracts to find our suppliers, to conclude some long project moments for development. Anyway, the exhibition is new acquaintances, new acquisitions, perhaps we will open an office in Almaty. In general, it is very interesting and productive to work at the exhibition.
Ibrahimova Ainura, Corporate Account Manager, Kerama Marazzi:
Well, we have been participating in the Kazbuild exhibition for several years already. We recognize many horizons, we see many interesting stands, besides ours. We have more and more new partners every year, designers know more about us, we always present our new collections. Every year we have certain new lines coming. And Kazbuild I think is a place where you can well imagine that they have learned about us, and we have learned a lot about different people and companies, designers, even customers. It seems to me that everything at the highest level, organizers always prescribes everything, they come to us for a meeting, they always help.
Jose Mugeiro, Account Manager Portuguese Association of Wood and Furniture Industries (Customer Service Manager, Portuguese Association of Woodworking and Furniture Industries):
We first arrived in Almaty and participated in this exhibition. The first impression for us: it is a promising market, and we see its great potential. Visitors of the exhibition are very professional. They show great interest in our products: various materials that are produced in Portugal, and which do not have a counterpart in the world. Talking about the exhibition, Kazakhstan will be an important market for Portuguese companies, and I think next year more Portuguese companies will come to participate in the exhibition.
Sunita Tatwal, Assistant Director, Federation of Indian Export Organizations:
On behalf of federation of Indian export organizations, companies that exhibit present construction equipment, paint and interior materials and interior solutions participate in the exhibition. All companies observe a good return on participation, and also feel great interest from the visitors. We are participating for the first time in the exhibition, but we will definitely be represented here next year.
Salvatore Parano, Director of the Italian Trade Agency:
During the last two days, we have been very busy organizing b2b meetings of 25 Italian companies with local partners, and these meetings were very successful. Yesterday we met with Akimat of Almaty and we found that there are opportunities for cooperation. Regional departments of the city of Almaty are carrying out work on the renovation of sidewalks and facades of buildings, and we think that Italian companies can provide the products that are needed for this.
