Agroprodmash. Participant Feedback
Debra Smith, Global Hygiene Specialist at VIKAN (Denmark)
“We participate in trade shows worldwide but the trade show in Moscow is one of the largest and most important for us”
“It’s the fifth year we’ve participated in the trade show and we think it’s the best way to explain our approach to customers. We show them our achievements and tell about them from scientific point of view.
The trade show grows year after year. At the stand we showcase a whole range of our products. These are both typical brushes and our wonderful new technologies which have recently won several awards. This year we mainly tell about listeria at seminars. It’s one of the most relevant topics in hygiene. More and more people visit us year after year. At first they come to see our stand, and then they want to get more information.
It’s quite a wonderful trade show. Every year we enjoy our participation more and more. Actually, we participate in trade shows worldwide but the trade show in Moscow is one of the largest and most important for us. I just like being in Russia, in Moscow. I love Russia. We’ll certainly come back next year. It’s difficult to say what we will show next year so far. All will depend on what will be the most relevant in the future.”

“Sanctions don’t affect us”
“We take part in Agroprodmash in Russia for the first time. We are aware of Russia’s potential for development of the agricultural sector. Our prospects require modern effective solutions for air moistening and acclimatization in different processes. Our technologies are little known in Russia. We need to explain, show and persuade. I think we do it. We are satisfied. For us the trade show is one of the tools to promote our products in Russia.
Sanctions don’t affect us. We try to participate in the development of Russian manufacturing industry. We feel recovery now.
Last year we participated in Agroprodmash. Then we studied demands of our customers from this industry. We considered a few trade shows in Moscow and understood that our equipment should be shown at Agroprodmash.”
Antonina Rybitskaya, General Director at NEUMO CIS
“Our manager has raised the issue of participation in the Agroprodmash exhibition at once”
“NEUMO CIS is a branch of NEUMO-Ehrenberg Group which includes companies manufacturing components made of stainless steel. Our manager has raised the issue of participation in the Agroprodmash exhibition at once. It was in 2006. Since then we’ve regularly participated in the trade show. This year we’ve made an entirely new stand allowing attracting many new visitors…
The number of meetings is much larger. We have customers throughout Russia, and all of them come here. We’re very glad. Even the first day of this exhibition was just terrific by the number of visitors… This trade is the most suitable for us. Agroprodmash always has a lot of participants. I wish the trade show further prosperity.”
Yury Chelnintsev, Director of Representative Office at FUJIAN SNOWMAN (China) in Moscow
“Agroprodmash is a trade show which has showed itself to good advantage”
“We represent the company making compressors and we hope they will be widely used in the equipment for cooling and freezing of seafood. Agroprodmash is a trade show which has showed itself to good advantage. And the equipment which we offer is consistent with the product sector. Our products are very popular here.
Many foreign partners attending out stand say that the level of Agroprodmash is higher than the level of Western trade shows. Many companies prefer to exhibit here because they see the market, its globalization and good organization.”
Robert Reisig, Regional Director for CIS at KRONEN (Germany)
“The aim of our participation is to tell people about our equipment and help customers adapt it to solve their challenges”
“KRONEN has existed since 1978 and has been on the Russian market since 2001. During this time we’ve participated in each edition of the Agroprodmash exhibition. The aim of our participation is to tell people about our equipment and help customers adapt it to solve their challenges. In the early years we brought equipment which we installed and showed each machine in operation to demonstrate their capacities. We’ve become well-known and in recent three or four years and there’s no necessity to showcase our technology. It allows spending more time on discussion of the issues of interest.
There is a friendly environment at the Agroprodmash exhibition. Here we network with existing clients and attract new ones. Our equipment is intended for processing of fruit and vegetables. This year most of our visitors are interested in the development of factory-kitchens with peeling, washing and cutting of fruit and vegetables. We have visitors from Vladivostok, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, Perm, Penza, Kaliningrad as well as from southern regions (Rostov, Krasnodar), the Ural region… The impressions of the trade show are very good.”
Galina Batsunova, Marketing and Advertising Director at Cabinplant
“For us Agroprodmash always takes effect. Thanks to the trade show, we work with clients for a whole year”
“Our company has participated in Agroprodmash since 2002. During 15 years we annually showcase equipment made by Cabinplant Danish company. Over the years the range of equipment has expanded. Agroprodmash is one of the main trade shows for us. It is confirmed by a customer base developed over the years. We’ll participate in the future as part of a group stand with our partners. Next year we’ll have a common large stand featuring more equipment and technology. The trade show annually provides us with an opportunity to network with major food producers from Russia and neighbouring countries.
Agroprodmash is a key platform attended by representatives of leading food processing enterprises. For us the Agroprodmash always takes effect. Thanks to the trade show, we work with clients for a whole year. Here we address a lot of issues. Knowing that we always take part in the trade show, our long-time customers find us to discuss the opportunities of upgrade and increase in production as well as order new lines. That’s why we must be here for a greater number of food manufacturers to learn about us.
Agroprodmash has become much better in recent years. It’s beautifully designed in one style. The placement of stands by the salons is well thought-out; the key food sectors are united. Search for companies has become easier. The ecology of pavilions, ventilation and air conditioning have improved. It’s more comfortable to work at stands. There is no excessive noise and nothing prevents from networking with customers.
I’d like to evaluate the work of organizers who respond to all our requests and take into account all wishes and inform us of new trends. The system of services became more convenient. There is a better organization of delivery of equipment to the stand. We’ll participate in the show for sure.”
