"We are newcomers to Technoforum. What motivated us to participate? We liked the list of participants of 2016. We also liked the space offered by Expocentre. We have made this decision, and we are not disappointed. The show is effective and productive. The equipment we demonstrate is bulky and heavy. But our pavilion has everything needed to unload it, connect it to mains and demonstrate in operation. We can see that it is popular and generates interest in the private business sector including small companies which are looking either to upgrade their press equipment or expand it or event start the business from scratch, and also in major state-run corporations. Here we had both impromptu meetings and a large number of previously planned meetings and talks".
Sergey Popov, General Director of STANKO Group
"We've participated in Technoforum almost since its first edition. I think it is the best autumn trade show in Moscow. There are a lot of exhibitors and visitors. The show is located very conveniently. Nowadays customers trust facts and trust things they can see and touch. Pictures in Internet are not very effective. It is very important to show your equipment in real life. That is why we participate in Technoforum. We do it to demonstrate our machine-tools in operation so that people see that it is of high quality and it is what they need. Today, services provided by Expocentre are the best exhibition related services in Moscow. Our equipment weighs eight tonnes but it was easy to unload, set up and connect to mains at the fairgrounds".
The next edition of Technoforum is to run from October 22 through 25, 2018. Similar products will be displayed at the Metalloobrabotka exhibition for equipment, instruments and tools for the metalworking industry on 14-18 May 2018. Both events run at Expocentre Fairgrounds.
