Feedback from Exhibitors 2019

RIYANSYAKH PUTERA, SIRYA ELOK SEJAHTERA COMPANY DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, INDONESIA

We came to the exhibition to find distributors of our products - tropical fruits - from Indonesia. We found here some contracts and now we are negotiating terms of cooperation, with some companies we are signing agreements. We hope to start deliveries to Almaty in the nearest future. What we liked the most is the target audience represented at the exhibition. Our stand was very popular, we saw big number of visitors. I am grateful to the exhibition for good results and I would like to come here next year.


ZAKHAR CHAPLYGIN, #1 MILK DAIRY PLANT, BELARUS

The Belarus National Stand is represented at FoodExpo Qazaqstan 2019 by 9 enterprises: diary, meet and grocery products. All our companies are very satisfied with the results of the exhibition. The event is organized just wonderfully. The potential of FoodExpo Qazaqstan cannot be underestimated. We found many key partners and we are intended to work with them in the future, we met distributors of retail trade, retailers and final consumers. We found partners not only to import products to Kazakhstan, but to bring products from Kazakhstan to Belarus. We are interested in many products represented at the exhibition. For example, one can found here the best equipment from all around the world, for packaging, other accompanying products. We started working over the most profitable for us proposals.


DJONG BENG, BUKHA COMPANY PRESIDENT, SOUTH KOREA

We came to FoodExpo Qazaqstan to present our products. We are interested in a local market. The products from the South Korea are not well represented here. We hope, that Kazakhstani people will test our products and start to consume them. The results of the exhibition exceeded our expectations. Very good feedback. We have already concluded cooperation agreement with one of the companies and start active work. We also have negotiations with distributors, discuss logistic issues.


MARINA DEMIDOVA, MIRATORG EXPORT SALES DIRECTOR, RUSSIA

FoodExpo Qazaqstan is an excellent exhibition, very useful, wonderful results. We met new partners, found distributors. The exhibition has gathered our direct customers - chains of major restaurants. So, we are very satisfied. We will definitely participate next year. Our experience shows that you should always be visible. This exhibition is a place to make conclusions, to meet your current partners.


FEEDBACK FROM WORLDFOOD KAZAKHSTAN 2018 EXHIBITORS

Batyrzhan Nurshanov
Director of Commerce in ALA Sintez LLP

It is our second time when we participate in the Exhibition of KazUpack. Having achieved good results and targeted impact at the last year exhibition, we’ve realized that this event provides an excellent opportunity to present ourselves to other companies. Besides, exhibitions serve as an effective platform to build up our corporate image.

I would like to note that the exhibition is really well organized! When we come to such business platform, we do not expect that everything will happen automatically. However, you can literally stop anyone passing visitor and start a conversation which can eventually result into future business relations. Everything depends on how well you work with your potential client, and the more efforts you make, the more rewarding outcome you receive.

For instance, last year we registered very good results: we concluded contracts and established relations with both the companies that had been already present at the market and those who were only planning to launch their beverage production. Today we have already won new clients and new contracts.

 


Igor Smirnov
Director in Complex-Bar KZ (Kazakhstan)

SmirnovStarting from 2009, we have been participants in every gathering of HoReх Kazakhstan Exhibition. I believe that such events contribute to, above all, your image, and, secondly, this is an effective platform to find new potential partners. Based on our experience I can say that each participation in HoReх Kazakhstan brings us, in average, from 25 to 30 new partners.

This year the exhibition is going well, I am happy with everything. The organizers react very promptly to all requests, and we are very pleased with the way they work! We do hope to find new partners, snatch the chance to refresh our relations with the old ones, and demonstrate our new products.

 

 


Alexander Skripin
Director in Aqua Food Trade

SkripinWe deal with the production of fish products in Kazakhstan, and we are also the official distributor of RYBPROM. It is our second participation in the Exhibition of WorldFood Kazakhstan, and I should say we are having rewarding results. The first day of this year exhibition alone brought us three contracts with regional companies from Taraz, Shymkent, and Ust-Kamenogorsk. For us WorldFood Kazakhstan serves as an effective business platform where we can conduct a direct search of partners and conclude beneficial contracts without intermediaries.

 

 

 


Tatiana Oreshkevich
Foreign Economic Activities Department Head in Pinsk Meat-Packing Plant JSC (Belarus)

OreshkevichThis is for the third time in a row when we showcase our products at the WorldFood Kazakhstan 2018 Exhibition. When we came to the exhibition for the first time, we received good results, namely, we found new partners. I think that exhibitions are very effective in terms of establishing and maintaining productive relationships with partners. It is very important to meet existing clients, get their feedback, complaints, and recommendations. Doing the same thing over the phone or email is quite complicated.

This year all exhibitions under the auspices of WorldFood Kazakhstan have been organized very well, we cannot complain! When we made a decision to participate in the exhibition, we, first of all, determined our key goal which was to expand our product sales volumes within the market of Kazakhstan. We have big plans for this exhibition as we expect to conclude, minimum, 2-3 contracts here.

 

 


Svetlana Oniskova
Marketing and PR Specialist in Dominic PJSC (Ukraine)

OniskovaWe are not novices at the Exhibition of WorldFood Kazakhstan. I’d like to note that every year we receive rewarding results from our participation in the event, leading to new business connections and arrangements with partners. Being here also helps us to update our database of potential distributors with whom we may continue to develop mutually beneficial relationships.

I would also like to say that this year the exhibition has been organized on a high level. Of course, we expect to find new distributors in Astana as well as raise our product sales in the overall regional market.

 

 


Elena Venediktovna
Product Manager in OOO Pivkombinat “Balakovskiy” (Balakovo Brewery, Russia)

VenidiktovnaThis is our first visit to Kazakhstan to participate in the WorldFood Exhibition and test the waters of the local market to sell our products here. The exhibition helps us to meet local distributors; we establish contacts and talk over potential collaboration matters. As to the organizational aspect, I think, the exhibition is going really well. The organizers are doing a great job!

 

 

 

 


Rinat Alkayev
Sales Managers in ООО Kainak (Russia)

AlkaevWe are newcomers to the exhibition of WorldFood Kazakhstan. For more than 6 years we have been participating in such tradeshows in Moscow. And this year we made a decision to extend our sales geography. We do work with Kazakhstan in supplying our products here, but that is not enough. We hope that WorldFood Kazakhstan will help us with finding new clients. I can say that we have met potential partners already within the first day of the exhibition, and we are now discussing nuances of cooperation. Also we caught up with our current partners.

As to the organization of the exhibition, I can say that everything is going smoothly, all processes are arranged in a systemic and professional manner.

 

 


Artyom Kovalevskiy
Sales Director in ООО Diad (Russia)

KovalevskiyThis is our first time when we participate in the Exhibition of WorldFood in Kazakhstan. From the moment we started our business, we take part in such events in Russia every year. Today, it is very important for us to find new clients and demonstrate our products to specialists that are present here. Another critical objective of our being at the exhibition is to monitor our competition, and we are analyzing current trends of the Kazakhstani market. Our product is unique, it is unparalleled in the CIS-countries, and we do want to know what our potential and existing customers think of it.

I am very pleased with how the exhibition is organized and the way it goes. I think this business platform will turn out to be very effective for us.

 

 


Maxim Strelnikov
Director of Vulkan (Volcano) Company

StrelnikovI believe an exhibition is one of the key business tools to promote your product. This is our first visit to Almaty to participate in the HoRex Exhibition, and we came because we are interested in developing our business at the market of Kazakhstan. We have been exporting our products to Kazakhstan, having a certain client portfolio here. However, we rest on our laurels, and today we have an objective to raise our local sales volumes. No less important is to explore the market of Kazakhstan. I think that the exhibition will enable us achieving our targets. The exhibition is indeed well organized, all services are easily available, and I do not see a single problem.

 

 

 


Olzhas Roman,
Commercial Department Specialists in EuroCold (Kazakhstan)

RomanThis is our first participation in the Exhibition of ColdChain Kazakhstan. I am impressed with how the exhibition goes, everything is organized at the very high level.

Our company is quite young, we have been at the market for three years only, so to support our identity at the market we’ve decided to demonstrate our equipment to this audience. We hope that we will win new clients and get a good experience. It is important for managers to develop their customer communications skills and be capable to present their company in an effective and competent manner.
