Our main objective of participation was to meet with our existing customers and new potential customers. We are pleased to have met with many existing and new potential customers from both Thailand and overseas, including quality visitors from China, Brazil and Taiwan who showed interest in our products.
Through our participation at the exhibition, we had the opportunity to meet with clients from India, Bangladesh, Thailand and Indonesia – all of whom are valuable contacts to our market expansion plans in Asia. We got to learn of purchasing requirements and products that are of interest to our regional clientele and gathered a better grasp of the region’s market trends, which will be helpful for the forward planning of our business.
We last exhibited at Tube Southeast ASIA in 2011 and have returned this year to see how the market has developed. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of quality enquiries that we have received at our booth, both from local and overseas visitors.
During my visit to Tube Southeast ASIA 2015, we got to learn about the latest market developments in Thailand and the region, appreciate the broad mix of products, materials and technology on display and establish knowledge exchange links to bring some of the industry’s best practices back to Japan.
The market for the wire and tube industries is booming in Asia, particularly so with the onset of the ASEAN Economic Committee (AEC) this year. The timely staging of wire and Tube Southeast ASIA 2015 allowed me to see and experience the latest in technology, materials and machinery, and bring such knowledge back to Myanmar.
I am glad wire and Tube Southeast ASIA 2015 covered a broad spectrum of the industries’ supply chain – where I could gain technical knowledge and network with fellow industry players at the seminar sessions, and experience an eye-opening display of international know-how and skillsets on the fairgrounds. I managed to procure bending tools and work benches from Eisenkraft which would bring about greater efficacy to my business while keeping cost low and competitive.
