FAKUMA 2011 - 30th Fakuma trade fair at Friedrichshafen, Germany

At the 30th Fakuma trade fair, covering 85'000 m2 floor space, 1670 exhibitors from 34 countries presented their products and services over five exhibition days. Around 670 visitors showed an interest in our new products and applications at the EMS stand.

The number of trade visitors - 44,823 people - confirms that the focus topics at the exhibition this year were very interesting again. In the international ranking of plastics trade fairs, the Fakuma is now recognised worldwide to take second place. As for many years now, the company VTS Kunststoffe GmbH shared the EMS stand. With our new stand concept, we stood out among the other exhibitors: With an open design, EMSpresso Bar and two flat screen monitors we also suited our customers' taste - we were able to welcome more than 670 registered visitors at our stand, further intensifying customer contact. Our visitors followed with great interest the information about the successful capacity increase for Grivory HT and long glass fibers (LFT) in the large extrusion and polymerisation. It was apparent that interest in our products is very strong and increasing, which will surely bring us good business in future as well.

Stand party

As is tradition our stand party with Joe Whitney and the Cocktail Divas took place on the Thursday. Very many EMS customers make use of this traditional Thursday event to meet with their contacts and then enjoy the following party. The atmosphere was very good and the party was a complete success with a clear visitor record this year.

Conclusion and Outlook

Summarising, it can be said that the large number of visitors and interesting discussions made for a very successful exhibition. We were able to present our company and its products very well and many contacts were made. The follow-up work to the exhibition is now being carried out and we look forward again to next year's event.
