    * 406 exhibitors from 19 countries report good business

WoodMac CHINA, which took place at the same time as FurniTek China and WoodBuild China from 17 to 20 February 2009 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) in Pudong/Shanghai, closed on a positive note. Over the four days of the event approx. 14,000 visitors from 81 countries were able to discover the innovative strengths of exhibiting companies from the woodworking industries. Despite the adverse economic situation at present, the exhibitors reported good business and were very satisfied with the trade show.

"We were quite surprised by the good outcome of the trade fair. The results were better than expected. We met most of the Chinese distributors and were able to sell several machines as we had a few special offers at the show," said a satisfied Jörg F. Mayer, General Manager of Altendorf Qinghuangdao Machinery. Similarly good reports came from other exhibitors at WoodMac CHINA 2009.

For example, Zeng Deming, Manager of Nanxing Woodworking Machinery Co.: "This year's WoodMac CHINA was most satisfactory and much better than any of us had anticipated in view of the current economic climate. We were able to secure orders from existing customers, as well as from new contacts in China and overseas."

The overview of future-oriented solutions showcased at WoodMac CHINA 2009 was just as inspiring for exhibitors as it was for visitors. Exhibitors from China and beyond presented pioneering products and technologies from the wood and woodworking sectors. The trade fair, featuring joint displays from Germany, Italy and Spain, attracted a total of 406 exhibitors from 19 countries. It provided European companies with an ideal platform for reaching new markets and cultivating existing contacts. Approx. 14,000 visitors were able to discover the innovative expertise of exhibiting companies from the wood and woodworking industries. Around 13 percent of these attendees came from outside China.

"The foreign visitors in particular represent a much valued clientele because they arrive with concrete investment plans in their pockets and deliver on that intention", explained Brendan O'Connell Jennings, General Manager of China International Exhibitions Ltd. (CIE). The foreign visitors came from 81 countries, including Afghanistan, Chile, Iran, Australia, Russia and Indonesia.

WoodMac CHINA takes place in conjunction with FurniTec and Wood Build China and has developed into an international meeting-place and platform for the initiation of new business contacts and the cultivation of relations with existing business partners. The accompanying program of seminars and conferences plays an increasingly important role. WoodMac CHINA is organized jointly by China Exhibitions Ltd., the China National Forest Machinery Association and Deutsche Messe Hannover with the support of EUMABOIS, the European Federation of Woodworking Machine Manufacturers.

The next WoodMac CHINA is scheduled to take place in March 2011 in Shanghai. For further details visit www.woodmacchina.net.
