Interview

Mr Pelzers, what expectations do you have from attending the trade fair?
We at Mitsubishi Electric have taken part in EMO 2013 in order to meet new potential customers and introduce them to our technologies. It is not our sole aim to sell as many machines as possible here. We want to lay the foundations for future business.
How has business been so far?
Today, on the third day of the fair, we’ve pulled out all the stops, had interesting meetings, discussed new projects and picked up our first orders. It’s been really great fun!
To what extent have your expectations been confirmed so far?
We’re satisfied. The cautious expectations that we had were realistic and have been fulfilled.
And how have visitors reacted to the fair stand?
Entirely positively. We’re showing what matters. In addition, visitors have the chance to sit down in a bright environment – this makes a good impression. We invite them to spend time among themselves and with us. On the principle of “people for people”.
How important is EMO as a trade fair?
Attending EMO is absolutely essential although it is not the most important trade fair for us in Europe. AMB in Stuttgart is more important for us today. But our participation at EMO has also generated a large number of new projects.
