In my 18 years of experience in international fairs and 8 years as a Romanian representative of two major exhibition centres in Germany, i.e. Leipziger Messe and Nürnberg Messe, I followed with interest the development of Romanian fairs. Fairs are a mirror of the sector/industry they represent, and DEMO METAL is today the mirror of the mechanical processing, machine building and installation industries in Romania. The upward trend in its 5 years of existence shows that technology supply and demand are on a new lease on life and permanently growing. I was very happy to see more Romanian technology, which raises hope in the future of Romanian industry, and I hope to see it soon at my fairs in Germany (such as Intec Leipzig and POWTECH Nürnberg). The new location, the organization, promotion and service quality are at Western level. We will support the development of DEMO METAL and wish lots of success to the organizers!
