Exhibit space sales for CONEXPO Russia at CTT 2012 are tracking very positively: Indoor space sales have already surpassed the 2011 total; outdoor space taken to date is already nearly 80% of 2011 numbers. CONEXPO Russia at CTT 2012 will be held May 29 to June 2, 2012 at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center in Moscow, Russia.
CTT is the largest construction-related trade show in Russia and Eastern Europe, and CONEXPO Russia is located in prime exhibit space at the event. Returning exhibitors (and taking more space) include John Deere, JCB and Vermeer.
Exhibitors have access to tens of thousands of buyers and decision makers, and CONEXPO Russia’s manufacturer focus helps companies strengthen brand awareness in this expanding marketplace.
"Companies tell us that CONEXPO Russia’s visibility and controlled environment allow them to concentrate on developing key customer relationships that lead to sales," notes Show Director Melissa Magestro.
Russia has allocated billions of dollars for infrastructure and related building projects. In 2011, foreign direct investment increased 43% to $11.7 billion for the first nine months year over year, and imports growth climbed nearly 23% for November 2011 year over year.
The CONEXPO Russia exhibit area is open only to manufacturers and manufacturers' exclusive dealers. The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), organizer of CONEXPO Russia, is known for emphasizing industry value and providing quality customer service.
Exhibit options include outdoor "raw" space with a discount off published rates; indoor space rates are the same as 2011, and exhibitors have the option of using AEM’s full stand construction service that includes hardwall shell scheme, company sign, standard furniture, carpet, electricity and lighting. To help take the hassle out of international exhibiting, AEM assists with logistics such as travel planning, hotels, visa processing and interpreter support.
Among the exhibitors voicing satisfaction with CONEXPO Russia’s OEM focus and exhibitor support are Brand Hydraulics, JCB and John Deere.
"Brand Hydraulics exhibited in CONEXPO Russia 2011 and found it to be a very worthwhile event," says Mike Osten, Director of Sales, Brand Hydraulics Corp. "Several new contacts were made during the week which have led to developing partnerships, increased market visibility, sales growth and overall brand awareness in line with our strategic objectives. The AEM staff provided various levels of excellent support. We look forward to participating again."
"Exhibiting at CONEXPO Russia has been a very positive experience for JCB," says David Hill, Regional Director Russia & CIS, JCB. "This is an important marketplace for JCB, and we have found it to be an excellent venue to gain increased exposure to high-quality potential and current customers. We know with AEM there is a focus on manufacturer needs and they provide a variety of value-added customer services. We look forward to the 2012 event."
"CONEXPO Russia/CTT 2011 was a great show for John Deere," says Valentin Kushnerev, Marketing Manager, John Deere C&F Russia/CIS. "We increased brand awareness and number of leads considerably. Our sales team closed many deals and signed contracts. Thanks to AEM’s proactive support, John Deere was fully and in time prepared for the show. In 2012 we are targeted to broaden our presence: more space, more equipment and higher booth quality, all to achieve higher results."
