908 Polaris, a labelling machine with PC – Industry 4.0 and 921.30 Tempest Plus 2 our new cutting machine for 3cm governed by new AMI software with new sharpening system and multitool for holes for automotive and furniture sectors was also displayed.
PERFECT SOURCING: What were consumers looking for this time? Did you observe any change in mindset as compared to Pre- Covid times in terms of investing in technology?
Mirella: Of course, the consumers today are much more aware and after seeing the advantages of our technology their interest increases multifold.
The number of visitors was less but they were all cautious and serious ones.
We observed that a lot of companies are now investing in cutting rooms and they are very positive about adopting the latest technology.
Perfect Sourcing: From which countries did you see visitors from?
Mirella: Visitors were mostly from Eastern Europe, Balkan Area, Asia and Tunisia.
No visitors from Spain and Portugal and very few customers from Asia may be due to the problems with Visa.
Few customers from the US were also seen at the show.
The traffic of visitors was less although we were expecting a better turnaround as the show was happening after a long time.
PERFECT SOURCING: Please rate your overall experience at Texprocess
Mirella: Texprocess 2022 experience was really positive because we met all our agents, associates and distributors.
We were missing this feeling of togetherness for a long time since the pandemic happened and we as a team had a great time.
We met new customers, made new connections and we are optimistic that the results will be good post exhibition.
