“This year, SCM Group was represented by its official dealer – Intervesp company – at LESPROM-URAL Professional. We have been regularly visiting Ekaterinburg for a number of years, therefore we are able to see that this event attracts interests of both exhibitors and visitors, as well as to assess the local market situation. Last year, our display at LESPROM-URAL Professional consisted in a few machines which were sold directly from the stand. This year, we wanted to offer something new which is not available yet from Asian or European manufacturers. This, our old partner Intervesp displayed the Morbidelli CX 100 (SCM) drilling center which found its new owner on the first day of the fair!”
Mikhail Zaytsev, commercial director at SCM Group - Russia (Italy)

“LESPROM-URAL Professional in Ekaterinburg has left the most positive impression. An exhibition is always a good chance to meet partners and new potential customers, as well as to learn more about the industry trends and demands in the region. The Ural region couldn’t be missed as it is rich with forests, craftsmen and businesses. We took a decision to participate in LESPROM-URAL because after a long crisis the region is now showing a growing interest in buying equipment. In my opinion, the highlight of the fair was the best furniture maker competition. Some of the equipment for the competition was provided by our company and supplied from Italy. It was a great idea to reward the best furniture makers and donate the produced furniture to an orphanage. Regarding the attendance, of course there are never too many visitors - the more people come the better! We wish this fair all the best and next year we are planning to exhibit here again. This decision has been taken by all my colleagues that are present at the stand and supported by our partner company Proektservis represented by it General Director Vladimir Rysev. We will try to convince our other international partners to share their ideas and technologies with Russian woodworkers!“
Natalya Komarova, commercial director at Griggio Centre (Italy)

“Our company has been participating in LESPROM-URAL since 2015. Over the year, the number of visitors has been changing, however our contacts with potential clients have been successful here. Next year we will exhibit here again because it’s an excellent opportunity to demonstrate our equipment and new patented technologies in this region.“
Artyom Fyodorov, marketing manager at Felder Group Russia (Austria)

“We’ve been showcasing our potential at EXPOMEBEL-URAL since 2014. We mostly do it to enhance our brand image. Of course, we’ve had contacts during the event but we need time to see if these contacts could lead to real results. As EXPOMEBEL-URAL is the only fair for the furniture industry in the Ural region, and most precisely in Ekaterinburg where we are based, it goes without saying that we are planning to exhibit here next year again!”
Denis Stavrov, director of STAVROV (Ekaterinburg, Russia)

“This year, our company is back to LESPROM-URAL Professional, and our expectations have been met: as the furniture industry is largely represented at the fair, our stand was mostly visited by furniture manufacturers. We participate in exhibitions quite a lot, and direct contacts are always better than cold emails and calls. And considering the Russian mentality, it’s more efficient to meet people – that’s the market’s feature. You could be in touch by email or phone for a long time, by in the end a face-to-face meeting decides all. And exhibitions are a place to do that.”
Vladimir Vyborov, project manager at Amandus Kahl Russia (Germany)
