FOODTECH 2019 - Testimonials

The exhibitors of the 1st FOODTECH express their complete satisfaction with their participation, their excitement for the quality of the visitors, while they all come to the same conclusion: their industry needed this show.

The 1st FOODTECH was very successful. All the halls of the exhibition center were full and there are a lot of exhibitors. We made new contacts and the idea is to take part again in the next FOODTECH.
Andre Muehlberger / General Manager, CBS System – Italy
We were very impressed by the high turnout of quality visitors. We made a lot of new contacts and we also met our old customers. We took a lot of good leads and a lot of potential customers.
Ivaylo Kosev / Marketing & Sales, Union Kehlibar – Bulgaria
I think FOODTECH was very helpful in order to improve our presence in the Greek market. We found a lot of new customers also from all around the world. I am very satisfied with the high quality of the visitors. We closed some business deals during the trade show and some customers will visit us in Istanbul to see who we are actually.
Kubra Bal Sukay / Sales Manager, Makets Makiba Sanayi – Turkey
My impression from the 1st FOODTECH is very positive. We made a lot of meetings with the visitors, who they were the decision makers from the Greek fnb industry. Not only we met a lot of potentials clients nut we also met old customers who came to learn about our new products. We will participate in the next FOODTECH for sure.
Shon Adams / Director Global Market Development, ENKO Plastics - Bulgaria
It was a pilot exhibition, it worked successfully for the first time. There was a high turnout, targeted, specific. We are pleased with the quality of the people that visited us, they were exactly what we expected. We’ll most likely sign up for the next FOODTECH event.
Aliki Mitsatsou / Sales Manager, Flexoplates
My impressions of the 1st FOODTECH were positive, the exhibition was well organized both in terms of advertisement as well as organization. It’s an exhibition that complements the industry’s needs. The quality of foreign buyers was at their maximum, they knew what they were looking for and where to find it, and the exhibition had advertised it quite well. They were quality people who knew their subject.
Nikos Dimou / President, Dimou Group
Turnout was characterized by two things: The first is quantity, which was highly satisfactory. What we are most concerned with is the qualitative aspect, that is, those who came were really those who were interested, knew what they wanted and what to talk about. I must say, we are very pleased, and we will participate in the second FOODTECH too.
Vasilis Bougias / General Director, Multivac
We are pleased, considering its the first year. We had some leads, but we’ll be waiting for the account of the show. FOODTECH is certainly more specialized, and had quite a strong publicity.
Dimitris Thalassinos / Aluminium Thalassinos S.A.
I can say that the first FOODTECH was good. From my discussions mostly with people from the packaging sector, FOODTECH went very well. In any case, as far as we are concerned, we put in an appearance, we saw our customers, we made new contacts, we are generally pleased.
Evangelos Gatzelakis / Gatzelakis K. & Sons S.A.
We found the 1st FOODTECH very interesting. It had a high turnout, and we saw that the professionals knew what they wanted. As far as our sector is concerned, many came to see specific things. Overall, the results are positive and we are quite pleased.
Konstantinos Sakalatsioglou / Voyatzoglou Systems
My impressions of the 1st FOODTECH are very good. The exhibition was very good, targeted, with a lot of turnout.
Ioannis Kateris / Kateris SA - Inox Design
My main impression from FOODTECH, is that it had a great participation. Visitors came with a particular interest of seeing new machinery and choose equipment. So the overall picture is positive. We made several contacts with explicit interest. It is still very early, but we’ll be probably interested in the next event in two years.
Panayotis Maraggelis / Michos S.A.
Our participation in the 1st FOODTECH was quite good, it was worth the event and the whole profile was missing from the Greek market. We made contacts, had targeted discussions, no irrelevant people coming in to ask what we were doing, and those who came had specific needs, specific questions.
Giorgos Papagiannis / GREKIS BROS Ltd - GR Inos
Judging from the participation, the interest and the quality of visitors, I’d say that the 1st FOODTECH was quite successful. Moreover, I liked how well it was promoted by the organizers compared to other similar exhibitions of the industry. We hope for a good response from the buyers.
Spiros Tsonas / Perfect Pack
The exhibition was very good. I mostly liked its focus on equipment and people’s awareness of what they were looking for, that they didn’t just come here for a ramble. So, overall, my impression of the show is very good. We had the turnout we expected, maybe a little better. It was well organized. Everything was fine.
Michail Savvas / AIR LIQUIDE HELLAS AEBA
I thing that the show was exceptional considering it was the first of its kind. And this type of exhibition was missing from Greece. FORUM’s organization was very good. Those who came were not just visitors, they were professionals who knew what they wanted, and that was evident from day one.
George Kakavas / BIZTEC
We are very pleased with the exhibition, as the level of the organization was very high and the quality and number of visitors from Attica and the province were ideal. I think our industry needed this exhibition. We had quite a few appointments with visitors from abroad.
Apostolos Katsaros / ΒIGTEM
We were very satisfied with our participation. We are very pleased. We saw our customers, leads, everything was perfect for us. It was more than we expected. I think FoodTech is an exhibition that our industry needed.
Sofia Anagnostou / ADVANCE FOOD TECHNOLOGIES
For its first year, it was good. It was probably better than I personally expected. We were pleased with the quality of the visitors. There was a variety of them both from the province and from Athens. It was an exhibition that our industry needed. We also had visitors from abroad. Even from outside Europe.
Vassilis Tsopanoglou / TSOPANOGLOU S. & Sons SA “TRIAS RETAIL SYSTEMS”
In terms of visitor quality, we know them for years. We came to meet new people, but also to become more established in the industry. Our impressions are generally positive. I think this kind of exhibition is very useful for the industry because not only you can advertise your product, but you can also bring in new customers from abroad, people who haven’t seen you anywhere and can meet you here.
Vassiliki Triantafyllaki / PROFAN MOTION SA
It is exceptional. No exaggerations. The truth is that I was never in doubt about FORUM, because I am aware of its work for so many years now and I have been following its shows, but I was impressed with this one. Congratulations.
Panagiotis Bitas / ΗΕLLAS DIGITAL
The level of organization of all your exhibitions is quite high. We saw it in this exhibition too, which you organized for the first time. Everything was well organized, we had no problem with our participation.
Vaggelis Lykoudis / SILGAN CLOSURES GMBH
I was very satisfied with our participation. We also saw that in these 3 days not only did we manage to get people to know us, but we also met people who really showed an interest for our products. We saw our clients, they came to see us here, which I think is very positive. So I believe that this is a useful exhibition for the industry.
Irene Passiou / IPACK LTD
Once again a proper event. Such an exhibition is useful to the industry as are all other exhibitions I think.
Dionysis Giannatos / MG PACK
What I noticed—and is one of the pros—is that this exhibition is more B2B. That is, I felt there were less irrelevant people, so the first messages are positive. The goal for us is both to show what we do and to attract new customers, because its the tenth anniversary of our company and we are relatively new in the field.
Deniz Haitoglou / HAITOGLOU SA GRAPHIC ARTS
We saw stakeholders, government officials, so we were well advertised, which was our goal from the start.I think that this exhibition was necessary for our industry. So I think that exhibitions such as FOODTECH are an ideal opportunity for companies that feature new products.
Kostas Pappas / ΙNOVA S.A.
A very good event. This exhibition is targeted and very interesting in terms of visitor quality. Exhibitions are always useful, especially sectoral ones. It was well organized, you did a good job both in advertising and setting up the whole place.
George Tzavelas / PACKOFLEX S.A.
In general, the organizer has proved what it can do, so it will improve it even more. We saw our clients, and I believe that we have also met new ones. It’s what you expect from an exhibition, so our first impression is positive.
Thanakis Tsopanakis / METROTECH TSOPANAKIS BROS
We saw the people we expected to see. The truth is, that Saturday was better than Sunday for us. I believe that the show is essential for the industry, because it is the same as abroad. The equipment and technology exhibition is held separate from the food one.
Elpida Lazaridou / Οwner, BONAROS S.A.
I think the sector needed an exhibition like that. Since packaging materials generally involve a lot of products, the fact that FoodTeck was very targeted, was helpful for us.
Nikos Mouladakis / RIGAS PACK
We are very impressed with the show. We are very pleased with the quality and number of visitors. We made a lot of appointments, closed a lot of deals, and we trust that we’ll have the chance to arrange other appointments in the future with any customer that came and we didn’t close a deal. We will definitely participate in FOODTECH 2021 as well.
Othonas Chouchoumis / Chief Operating Officer, Sabo Electric
The 1st FOODTECH event was a pleasant surprise for me. It was very targeted. The results seem to be very good. The number and quality of the visitors are very good. I’m very pleased and optimistic with the contacts I’ve made. I believe that FOODTECH 2021 will be even bigger, I’ll probably ask for more space to display more items.
Nikiforos Charagionis / CEO, Chronografiki S.A.
It is a well organized exhibition of European standards for both exhibitors and visitors. The food industry has many needs in general, and having the right information on both machinery and consumables is essential. Such events have nothing to envy from the bigger European ones. The number of visitors is more than satisfactory. The first meetings with major companies show a corresponding quality.
Yagos I. Vamvacas / President, Vamvacas S.A.
The exhibition is very targeted, visitors are interested in the subject and the companies that offer all these solutions, and I think it’s the ideal show. I think the quality of the visitors was even better than I had imagined. It is important that the customers who come here have specific interests. I think it couldn’t have been more targeted. I believe that this exhibition is what was missing.
Markos Skevofilax / Managing Director, Bizerba
We believe that it is a very good exhibition for the industrial sector, for food processing machinery. We’ve seen many of our clients who came to see new technologies and discuss projects and equipment. On the other hand, there were many people who wanted to learn how we can meet their needs for new investments and improve their production processes. We generated new leads from Greece and abroad, which made us very happy because they will help us increase our export character.
Nikos Makelis / Sales Director, Makelis | Food Processing Equipment
Our impressions of FOODTECH are very positive. We had a very large turnout, with people making targeted questions, knowing what material they were looking for and what investments they wanted to make. This industry needed an exhibition, so that all factory and plant owners could be served according to their needs.
Panagiotis Lagios / General Manager/ Mechanical Engineer, Gizelis Robotics
We are pleased with the quality of the visitors: 9 out of 10 are professionals, which means a great deal of success for us. We closed many deals and booked many appointments for after the show. We had B2B meetings with the Hosted Buyers and visitors from other countries. It goes without saying how we have already booked our stand for the next FOODTECH.
Panos Kapelis / Managing Director, Kapelis Packaging
Our impressions of the 1st FOODTECH are really encouraging. It’s exactly what the industry needed at this time. The exhibition was 100% necessary, given the Greek construction sector’s potential. The quality and number of the people are very high, and this applies both for the Greek and foreign Hosted Buyers. I will definitely recommend FOODTECH to my associates. It’s a show that every manufacturer of the food industry must attend.
George Moschakis / Area Sales Manager, Acmon Systems
I think that the 1st FOODTECH is quite successful. The quality of visitors is what we expected and there is a lot of participation. The appointments that were made as well as those that are underway are very important, with new deals, corroborating everything we’ve done.
Vasilis Vardoulis / Sales Manager, Vardoulis S.A.
The 1st FOODTECH was a new experience. We decided to participate believing that it would have a higher technical level both in terms of visitors and suppliers. We can see now that the standards are indeed quite high. We had several meetings these days both with foreigners and Greeks.
Alexandros Paraskevalidis / Managing Director, Europack S.A.
FOODTECH is different than the exhibitions we attended last year because it is a sectoral exhibition. I think this exhibition was necessary for the sector. We are pleased from the quality of the people who visited us. And visitors are definitely targeted.
Dimitris Kiliaris / Managing Director, Sabo S.A.
Visitors were targeted, they knew why they came here. What was also very positive is that there were arranged appointments with visitors from outside Greece who came specifically to see specific packaging machinery manufacturers like us. The Hosted Buyers knew why they came here. We will definitely be here for the next FOODTECH.
Petros Chiotis / Commercial Director, Adam Pack
2019 FOODTECH is really targeted on food industry and on the production and packaging technologies. I was positively impressed, it was something that was missing. Those who came had real questions, expressed concerns, we gave answers, and all this actually resulted into that, which, we, as exhibitors, came here to do. We booked several appointments for deals in the immediate future.
Christos Zablakos / Sales Manager, Dunapack Packaging
The 1st FOODTECH attracted both a large number of ordinary people, but also quality visitors who were focused on the industry. We are very pleased. We have evidence of many new partnerships.
Polixeni Makri / Chief Financial Officer, Plastimak
What I really liked is that people were targeted, they knew what they wanted, and they came to the exhibition to find what they were looking for. Everything went well, we closed many deals and all in all we are very pleased with the people that came both from Greece and abroad. I do believe I’ll be signing up for the 2nd FOODTECH, because it is very targeted and that is something that I like.
Efthimios Efthimiou / Owner, Propack
Our impressions of FOODTECH are very good. It is certainly an exhibition of international standards that the Greek market needed. We’ve had various kinds of meetings both with existing clients and prospective leads. We had true meetings, we discussed at a high professional level. We also had meetings with potential clients from abroad. We will certainly sign up for the next FOODTECH event.
Alkiviadis Ntousopoulos Tsimis / Supply Chain, Trade & Finance, Tsimis S.A.
