Baumer (China) Co LtdMr Song Ling, Marketing ManagerWe have been exhibiting at SIAF since 2015, and the number of visitors this year exceeded my expectations. Only on the first two days of the fair, we have already recorded approximately three thousand visits at our booth. In fact, the Chinese market highly values face-to-face interaction, and so we were able to meet many new and existing customers at our booth looking for products and expressing their purchasing needs. SIAF is one of the most important communication platforms in the country, and therefore we look forward to the upgraded SPS – Smart Production Solutions Guangzhou continuing to lead the Chinese manufacturing industry towards increased automation.
Datasensing S.r.lMr Parker Wang, China Sales LeaderSIAF Guangzhou is a top tier exhibition in South China with a heavy focus on automation and smart manufacturing, and we are joining the show to promote our brand awareness in the country, especially in the South China market. Throughout the show, the hall always maintained a large crowd. There were lots of enquiries at our booth, many of whom we believe have big potential. I was also happy to learn about the upgrade of the fair to SPS – Smart Production Solutions Guangzhou for the next edition. SIAF Guangzhou has always been connecting industry players within the nation. With this coming upgrade, I hope to see its level of internationalism further elevated, which will help connect us with overseas players. I am very much looking forward to coming back to the next edition.

MejidenkiMr Altman Guo, Sales DirectorThis our fifth year participating at the fair as SIAF Guangzhou not only attracts the right target buyers for our business but is also a great marketing tool for promoting our brand. The fair puts us in direct contact with new and existing clients to not only gain valuable feedback for our products, but to also understand their individual manufacturing needs. We are very pleased with this year’s event as many local clients came to our booth to discuss business partnerships in detail, boosting domestic sales due to a sharp decrease in imported products. Paired with the government’s production goals in the latest Five-Year Plan, our domestic market sales increased close to 90% in the past two years. In terms of sustainable manufacturing, our firm has been heavily involved in developing lithium ion battery technologies and solar PV smart manufacturing solutions to support the country’s ‘Carbon Peak’ and ‘Carbon Neutral’ initiatives.
