„GrindTec” in Augsburg, Germany, “ICMCTF” in San Diego, California, US, “SVC TechCon” in Indianapolis, Indiana, US, “CCMT” in Shanghai, China – it has been a long time tradition for PVT’s team in the first months of the year to travel to a variety of conferences and exhibitions. Although these events target different industries the comprehensive knowhow concerning surface engineering and the optimization of surfaces through high performance PVD coatings makes the mid-size company a much asked for discussion partner at these venues.
It was gratifying to see: the shows and conferences, which have been a fixed and recurring part of Dr.-Ing. Herbert M. Gabriel’s (president of PVT) diary, “…. nevertheless there have been new contacts to professional visitors, who had not known about us and our products before. That alone is motivation enough to continue with the strategy of continuous attendance of these conferences and shows.‘
This strategy also applies to the Asian Market and proved to be valuable at CCMT (China CNC Machine Tool Fair) in Shanghai – shown in the above picture.
In Bensheim the emphasis on regular international presence is not limited to customer aquisition. Continuity and realiability are deciding elements for success in the field of machine manufacturing and coating services. It is important to know that a foreign partner is a reliable participant at a show – thus sustaining and developing confidence in a business relationship – especially ICMTCTF (International Conference on Metallurgical coatings and Thin Films) in the United States – an important meeting place for PVT with many local suppliers.
Until fall the focus will be on the Chinese Market. An outline of upcoming events with PVT participation can be found on our web-page (Trade Shows), with more than 10 upcoming events for the rest of the year. We are looking forward to seeing you!
