Exhibitor Clark Xia, Overseas Sales Manager of Sunrise Technology Ltd, China was delighted with the quality of visitors and the referrals he received from the show: "This is our first year exhibiting at any CARTES event and we are very very happy with the results we achieved. 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!"

We've been pleasantly surprised by the number of qualified potential customers we have met here.
