“This is my second visit to this show. I pay a visit here again because of the advantage to see as many exhibitors from the moulding sector in one place. I can learn more about the market trends and the latest technologies too. I have spoken to around 20 exhibitors. Among the contacts, I acquired three quotations from mould cutting exhibitors. After the show, there will be talks with them and further samplings will be needed. Asiamold is an influential trading platform for mould and die industry in China as the products showcased are of high quality.”

“This trade fair is a great opportunity to meet new suppliers and to talk face-to-face with our current suppliers. This is the most comprehensive fair in Asia and is the place where everyone comes to distribute to big and small companies. This is a good chance for networking so as to set up a bridge between China and Europe. I have found some potential partners that we could work with. Furthermore, it was a good idea to host Asiamold and SIAF side by side. Not only was this a convenience to fairgoers but it also give buyers get a perspective on what the modern day manufacturing has developed into.”
