What our exhibitors have said about the event´s 2010 edition
"The Mechanics Fair is an excellent relationship channel with the several sectors of the industry. To participate in the event was strategic to place the brand name Bonfiglioli in Brazil, in their working markets, by means of the IPV Business Units (Industry & Photovoltaic) and MWS (Mobile & Wind Power Solutions), which offer specific solutions for the integration of mechanical, hydraulic and electronic systems for generating energy, mobile and industrial applications."
Manfredi Ucelli di Nemi, Executive Director at da Bonfiglioli do Brasil
"This edition of the Mechanics showed an excellent level of professionalism, in all aspects. The fair was a place for business deals, translating into an exceptional opportunity for commercializing and prospecting. The resurgence of the industrial sector was visible, with a highly qualified public, interested in bringing technological solutions to their companies and industries. Our portfolio during the first three months of this year was 22% higher than the same period last year, and with the success of our participation at the fair, this percentage should reach 30% in the first three months relative to the first six months of the previous year".
Eduardo Trevisan, Marketing and international Sales Manager at DEB’MAQ
"It was stunning. Our expectations were exceeded in closing deals as well as making new contacts. During the five-day event, we reached a mark that is equivalent to double the average monthly income of our company. I can say that the 50th celebrated edition of the Mechanics was the best of all time".
Alfredo Ferrari, Sales director at Ergomat
"With a large public flow right from the start, the Mechanics 2010 exceeded all our expectations; bringing many representation sales possibilities and mainly, good business deals over the five days of the event".
Evair Caetano, Commercial manager at da Instrutherm
"I am satisfied with the Mechanics, with the public's qualification, which focused on our products, and with the good business deals that the company is having. We will continue to participate in all editions of the fair".
Ricardo González, Marketing and Training Manager at Mitutoyo
Our decision to participate in the fair proved correct. I do not remember having seen a fair with a public so focused on business. We received at our display stand buyers from several Brazilian regions, including the South of the Country. Our forecast was to close between seven and nine machines at the fair, which we did. Nonetheless, the prospecting of ten new projects was a great surprise. It certainly was the best Mechanics of all time".
Carlos Eduardo Ibrahim, Sales manager for Latin America at Okuma
"I am very happy with the results obtained at Mechanics. WE sold four machines and have six more under negotiation. If they pan out, it will represent an enormous lift in the company's production".
Iara Schuster, Director at Prensas Schuster
"The event was three times better than in 2008, in visitation with a qualified public, as well as in prospecting. We are expecting a post fair with excellent results. We have many projects that must be finalized in the short, medium and long terms". Luis Alberto Cabral, Commercial Director at Powermaq
"This year's edition of the Mechanics Fair was important so that we could evaluate the market and to confirm the tendency of the recovery that we had been observing since the last three months of last year, and that, we hope, will maintain itself overthis year".
Hermes Lago, Director of Commercialization of Machines at Romi
"The fair reflected the current Brazilian economic times and the country abroad. The public who has participated in the event is directly connected to the business as related to technological updating as well as in closing business deals. It was a grand event".
Carlos Guapyassu, Director General at Wika
"The well-chosen segment public was the great highlight of this edition. The strategy used by the organization to select the visitor was excellent. We were able to show our line of sustainable products line, which attracted the attention of many potential customers. Our expectations were exceeded by at least 30%. It was the best fair that we have participated in".Jorge Farsky, Director President at Walter
"Aside from strengthening our relationship with customers who already use Dependable Engineering solutions, we had the opportunity to expand our contact network with representatives of maintenance and product development companies. We presented at the Mechanics reliability analysis software that allows monitoring product performance, mainly Weibull++, ALTA and RCM++, used worldwide by several sectors of the industry".
