Visitors and exhibitors Statements

Otto Christ, Alexander Christ, CEO/Vorstand

"Wir waren 2014 dabei und sind jetzt zum zweiten Mal hier und unsere Erwartungen wurden nicht enttäuscht, sondern ganz im Gegenteil:  Wir haben mehr Informationen, mehr Interessenten und mehr Kundenkontakte als vor zwei Jahren. Wir haben hier viele Kunden aus dem In- und Ausland, ein höher prozentueller Anteil von Kunden aus Österreich, Schweiz, Skandinavien, Südeuropa und teilweise aus Übersee. Das Feedback für uns ist gut. Wir denken dass die UNITI expo, so auch der Respond von unseren Kunden – die Leitmesse wird für die nächsten Jahre, dahingehend sind wir sicher, dass wir in den nächsten Jahren auch wieder dabei sein werden."

"We were here in 2014 and this is our second time. Our expectations have not been let down. On the contrary, we have more information, more prospects and more customer contacts than two years ago. There are more customers from all over the world, with a higher percentage share of customers from Austria, Switzerland, Scandinavia, Southern Europe and some from abroad. The feedback is really good for us. We think, and this is also according to our customers’ response, that UNITI expo will be the leading trade fair for the next years. Therefore, we are sure to come back in the next years."
