The Eurasia Glass trade fair, which took place in Istanbul from 11 to 16 November 2022, attracted record attendance with over 60000 visitors.
After a year’s absence from the event, due to the pandemic, Bavelloni was once again present at this event together with our new dealer GLASTECH MAKİNE ve CAM İŞLEME A.Ş., distributor of the Bavelloni brand in Turkey and great new entry at this edition.
Glastech Makine, although a recently established company, has a team with proven experience in the glass industry, technically and commercially skilled, with a solid reputation in Turkey.
Many professionals visited our stand thanks to the great contribution of our dealer, who proved to be an excellent catalyst for attendance.
“In Turkey, Bavelloni has an important installed base and customers who are loyal to our brand for the high standards of quality and reliability of our products,” refers Federico Bassi (Partner, Bavelloni SpA) who attended the show, and continues, “Our main priority has always been assisting our customers and growing together, developing effective solutions and long-lasting partnerships. Therefore, we are pleased with our cooperation with Glastech Makine and confident that, in this way, our customers can count on a qualified on-site partner both for the purchase and service of Bavelloni solutions.”
After a long absence, 2022 marked the return in presence of glasstec. This year, everyone was feeling the need to get back to normal life and meet face-to-face.
Glasstec offered us the opportunity to re-engage with customers in person after the pandemic and above all to re-establish personal relationships and reconnect with the people who are essential parts of every company.
The meetings and discussions generated during the event were interesting. Considering the current scenario, the attendance was very good and, certainly, of a high standard: visitors were really interested in investing, with clear ideas about the products to focus on and, some of them, also willing to place their order at the show.
“We registered a high attendance especially in the central days of the event”, reported Federico Bassi (Sales Director, Bavelloni Spa), “As usual, there was a significant participation from Central Europe and the Mediterranean basin, even though there were also visitors from overseas; Asian operators and visitors were almost absent. Besides many handshakes and conviviality – which we really needed – some deals were also signed at the show. We felt a positive mood at our booth, although the pandemic is not yet completely over and there are some economic and political uncertainties in the global scenario. Our customers’ confidence in Bavelloni’s products and in our organization was noticeable. There was also strong commitment and involvement from our partners and distributors”.
Visitors were able to attend live demonstrations of the machines on display and take advantage of the combined presence of Bavelloni and Techni Waterjet specialists, all together on the same stand for the first time.
Bavelloni straight-line edgers and cutting tables were the hot topic of several Bavelloni negotiations. Techni’s waterjet system was also much appreciated.
“Thanks to the interesting group synergies and the complementarity of our respective portfolios, we are able to propose targeted solutions to the market for each specific requirement”, concluded Federico Bassi.
Stanislaw Jakubiec (General Manager | EMEA, Techni Waterjet) also expressed his satisfaction, “Techni’s waterjet solutions are suitable for cutting any material, including glass. We are confident that our attendance at glasstec together with Bavelloni will certainly drive the development of our business in the glass segment as well.”
The latest edition of Glass South America, the largest glass trade show in Latin America, was a successful event for our brand and for consolidating Bavelloni do Brasil’s position in the market.
A great number of professionals from all over Brazil and South America visited our stand, which resulted in interesting business opportunities.
“Glass South America was a real success both in terms of visitors to our booth and for the high volume of business generated,” reports Teodoro Baldassarre (Bavelloni do Brasil | Branch Director), and adds, “This was Bavelloni do Brasil’s first time at Glass South America so we aimed to strengthen our market position. And we succeeded quite well in this: the market reacted very positively appreciating Bavelloni’s return to Brazil with a regional subsidiary. Our local presence and closeness to customers represent a huge value to them and this plays a key role in their decision-making process.”
Brazilian industry players showed increasing interest in the most sophisticated Bavelloni equipment and fully integrated solutions, and we are ready to cope with their demand and challenges.
