2019 Exhibitor Interviews
We were pleasantly surprised that this year had more African visitors coming over (which is a target audience for us) and was quite busy.
We did notice, that “quality” visitors were more this year. The business-matching making program is the greatest tool you have brought in which really works and helps.
The 2019 edition of Automechanika Dubai was an exceptionally positive experience. We didn’t expect such a big interest in inner tubes and agricultural tires. We have the impression that the show is getting better and better with each edition from the perspective of organization and the amount and variety of visitors as well.
Automechanika Dubai is a good place to meet old friends and explore new business opportunities. The show in 2019 is better than the ones in previous years. We will definitely join you again and looking forward to a great show in 2020.
It was good show especially from the customer and supplier’s perspective. We did come across few genuinely interested visitors who were keen in developing business with us. Being one of the sponsor of the event was a good highlight for us plus we also invested in the utilization of few marketing tools that got us the visibility during the show.
The Automechanika Dubai 2019 is very successful for us. We met many old and new customers from Middle East and Africa country. Most of them are professional in tyre and spare parts business. We hope to benefit and have more chance for cooperation in the near future.
As a first time exhibitor, we were very happy to have met a wider audience of visitors from the UAE, KSA, Kuwait and Lebanon whose level of seriousness in doing business was quite high.
