Excellent response from exhibitors

In terms of population, Indonesia is the 4th biggest market on the planet and the world's 3rd largest democracy, with a wealthy middle class, larger than that of Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore combined - and with one of the fastest growing economies in Asia. The manufacturing industries are expected to record an average growth of as much as 8% annually. Exhibitors and visitors praised the show's relevance especially to Indonesia's growing industrial sector. Mr. Ir. R. Rammon, Director for PT Gerfa Manunggal Teknindo (sole agent to Hyundai, Kia and Hurco), said "Machine Tool Indonesia is truly the show for machine tool companies. Not only is it the largest in terms of size, it also brings us the largest pool of potential buyers". "The German capital goods industry considers Manufacturing Indonesia as an important exhibition in the region and a good way for German companies to meet their customers and partners and to increase their business in Indonesia. We have already reserved the space for the German Pavilion at Manufacturing Indonesia 2009", explained Friedrich Wagner from the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) who supported the Official German Pavilion. Mr. Enrico Suwandi of Ekatama group said "Manufacturing Indonesia provides an excellent opportunity for companies to gauge themselves amongst their peers and to showcase their products and services to those that matter most, potential users and partners. "Manufacturing Indonesia is an excellent show with a high level of good quality visitors. We came to find a distributor and have many contacts from which to make our selection" said Marku Vaarni from KNFNike Air Max
