The quality of the show and the visitors was very good. On day one we achieved 13 requests for quotes from qualified customers. It's also been a nice opportunity to see many of our current customers and reaffirm our relationship. We would definitely recommend CARTES to other companies in this field. In the future we will consider participating Paris and even the US exhibition!"
