What Exhibitors had to Say:

"The Ahmedabad Machine Tool Expo has attracted customers from cities like Rajkot and Surat. Maximum customers came from Tier II and Tier III cities and they have given very good responses."

"We have seen the development of Gujarat. We are the distributors for BFW. The show was totally dedicated to manufacturers and customers of machine tools and accessories. These kind of shows should be conducted by IMTMA. The invitation given by IMTMA and individual exhibitors have ensured the presence of potential customers."

"One can do a lot of networking in regional shows like these. The show has helped bring latest technology to the local regions of India. There is a lot of interest from the customers."
- Marian Teufelhart, Haimer

"The response has been pretty well. People from Maharashtra, Goa and Gujarat have streamed in. These kind of shows expose entrepreneurs to the latest technology. The show was also very good for MSMEs."

"The exhibition has shaped up very well. We touched base with a number of new customers from Gujarat and Maharashtra, many of them whom we didn’t know before. This show in Ahmedabad has helped us in gaining access to customers whom we were not reaching out before. People could see the equipments, understand the advantages and disadvantages and applications of the different machines. This helps in developing potential customers." - Vernon Pontes, Alex Machines

"Some of them were looking for solutions to problems. We had solutions for many of them and for the ones where we didn’t have readymade solutions, we suggested alternative machines that could solve their problems."

"Gujarat is coming up in a big way as an industrial hub. There are lots of automobile industries operating in the state. This was what brought us to this exhibition. This expo was very useful for small machine tool manufacturers."

Some Quotes from Visitors:

"This was the first machine tool expo held in Gujarat. We were interested to see the technology and the new machines and we found it in plenty. The industry is growing and these kinds of exhibitions will boost manufacturing. The show was very well organized, everything was disciplined and in good order."

"This is the first time that such a good show was held in this region. The show has given us a very good insight into different products. It was beautifully organized and helped us to learn what is happening in industries. Hats off to the organizer of this show."

"Regional level shows are always welcome. People can understand what kind of technology is coming in to the market. Talking to various exhibitors at this venue cleared all our doubts related to machines and their installation."
