In September 2018, the fischer group participated for the first time with an own exhibition stand
From 26 to 29 September 2018, the fischer group was represented for the first time with its own stand at the eighth Tube China in Shanghai with a large team of 8 to 9 fellow campaigners. In addition to the sales staff Marc Maushart, Frank Gerber, Georg Kimmig, Thorsten Junge and Christine Schorb, Hans-Peter Fischer was also present in China.
China is developing very dynamically in terms of technology and environmental requirements in the automotive exhaust sector and could even exceed Western levels. Therefore, the aim of the exhibition was to become more present on the Chinese market. Marc Maushart says: “Market size and market growth in China are a challenging task!” And his colleague Frank Gerber adds: “The globalization of our company requires local contact with our major customers. We have to drive networking even further, especially with these customers.”
Rewarding visit to a growing platform
It was a successful exhibition, as almost all of the most important invited customers were present at the stand. In addition, new contacts were made. The fischer group had ensured a high-quality appearance and staged various product groups in a sophisticated manner. They provided starting points for numerous interesting technical discussions. “The exhibition was very good for us in terms of visitors and contacts – also in comparison to our competitors. We also got to know the Chinese market even better,” emphasized Frank Gerber (Product Manager Automotive). His colleague Christine Schorb (Manager Sales Automotive) added: “Yes, it was good that we were there. The exhibition was much better attended than 2 years ago.” This is also confirmed by the official figures: More than 45,000 visitors from 91 countries and regions represent an increase of 6.9 % compared to the exhibition in 2016. The companies Trumpf, Schwarze-Robitec, Lang Tube Tec and Wecotech also had their exhibition premiere in China in 2018.
Tube China is an international trade exhibition for the piping industry that takes place every two years in Shanghai. It is one of the world’s largest trade exhibitions for tube and pipe technologies which have firmly established on the trade exhibition market as an offshoot of the Tube in Düsseldorf.
