Last month’s Middle East Coatings Show was truly a global success. A total of 86 companies from China took booths (in 2008 this number was 23) and many more were co-exhibitors. The show, which took place in Dubai, UAE, on 12-14 March, 2012 attracted a record number 6217 attendees, from 97 countries. Here are just three quotes from exhibitors:
"As a partner of Quartz, the CCPIT Sub-Council of Chemical Industry has organised a China Pavilion at MECS 2012 as we do every year. Due to the positive feedback of our exhibitors, our pavilion is extending and has reached the largest scale this year. We are glad to see the growing number of exhibitors and valuable visitors at the show. The Middle East is a very important and active market, and our exhibitors regard MECS as a good entrance to the market. We trust MECS will be better and better in the coming years.”
Ms Chen Shaohua, deputy secretary general, CCPIT Sub-Council of Chemical Industry.
"MECS 2012 is a very successful exhibition with lots of exhibitors, delicately-designed booths and a variety of products. During the coating show period, enterprises have the chance to find the co-operation partners that they are looking for and find out about all the latest market information and development technology. Therefore, the exhibition is an effective and productive platform for exhibitors and visitors to communicate with each other.”
Zhang Jun, vice-general manager, Anhui Annada Titanium Industry Co, Ltd.
"MECS 2012 had a larger floor area than previous years and I’ve noticed more customers and exhibitors. This is the show where companies in the paints and coatings industry will find the right people. So MECS is a good place to look for potential customers and increase demand for our products within this industry.”
