Paptech Finland, held in Helsinki on March 21-22, gathered 35 exhibitors and a total of 457 visitors over the two day event period. The new event concept was well received by exhibitors and visitors.
- We are pleased about the organisation of the event and about the way it looked, says Marcus Bergström, CEO of Adforum, organisers of the event. - The concept was also well received by our exhibitors who appreciated the simplicity of participating. By offering complete stand packages at a reasonable price, exhibitors were just able to show up with their marketing materials and start networking.
- Of course we had hoped for some more visitors, Bergström continues, but we think that most exhibitors had a decent amount of qualitative meetings with existing and new potential clients.
- The idea behind the event was in my opinion brilliant, as the thought was to make for example the opening of conversations easier, says Heikki Mustalahti, Managing Director of ACA Systems Oy, who exhibited at Paptech Finland 2012. - I hope that more paper makers would attend the next Paptech, Mustalahti continues.
Paptech Finland was developed as a new meeting concept for the pulp and paper industry, enabling easy and cost effective meetings between suppliers and buyers. This two-day forum included informative seminars, an exclusive Gala Dinner, match-making areas and opportunities to catch up with colleagues over a cup of coffee. Paptech was developed as regional meeting place for the Finnish market in order to fill the gap between the two large PulPaper exhibitions, held in 2010 and 2014.
Paptech Finland was organised by Adforum with official support from PI, the Paper Engineers’ Association.
