I gained good impressions from my visit to the exhibition. I try to attend the PowerExpo Almaty exhibition every year, there is a lot of useful information on the industry. I've already attended a roundtable on energy auditing, and I've noticed a lot of useful things. I am interested in electrical equipment and the purpose of my visit was to explore the market and talk live with suppliers. There are fewer stands this year, but that's the effect of the pandemic. It's very helpful when you're in direct contact with suppliers at an exhibition. It was a very cool experience for business development.
My colleagues and I came to the exhibition in order to get acquainted with new equipment and new components. We are manufacturers ourselves and we have a professional interest in new technologies on the market. The list of participants this year is very diverse and interesting. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the scope of the exhibition has been slightly reduced. We attend this exhibition on an annual basis and wish for a quick return to its former scope. The feature this year that I liked was the construction of the stands. The products of the exhibitors are well presented and it is immediately clear what the company does and what equipment it offers.
We liked the list of companies that were listed on the site, and we were very attracted to it. Visiting the exhibition allows you to broaden your horizons and talk about our company's capabilities. Today we are studying not only the market of Kazakhstan, but also the neighboring CIS countries. Definitely, online events are very convenient and productive in pandemic times, but in our company's opinion, the offline format is much better and more effective in all areas. The level of organization at PowerExpo Almaty exhibition is excellent. The only thing I would like more participants in a narrow, related area of construction and design. In any case, it's great that this year we all gather here and can discuss pressing industry issues.
PowerExpo Almaty is an industry exhibition, essential for all professionals. I was very impressed with the amount of information presented. I met many partners and clients among the participants. As a visitor to the exhibition I can note the information content of the site, it is clear and highly specialized. The list of exhibitors is interesting and satisfying for any professional. The main purpose of the arrival is to communicate with all the partners who came here from different countries. We came together in one place to share experiences, discuss new contracts and plans. For me, the exhibition is a place where we can come together from all over the world and share our opinions and plans. This was my first time attending an exhibition in Almaty, and my expectations were fully met. Next year we plan to visit the exhibition with our partners in a more extended team.
I have been visiting the exhibition every year since 2018. The PowerExpo Almaty 2021 is quite interesting. The exhibitions are always a place for networking, for finding new partnerships. I come to the exhibition to get fresh ideas, to get acquainted with my current competitors, with those with whom we are in the same market, as well as to present my services. I like the way Iteca organizes exhibitions. The stands are very conveniently located, everything is clear and informative. The range of companies represented is very large and of high quality. In the future, I would like to see more international companies, more colorful stands, more interactivity and gamification.
