“We have been coming to SIAL Middle East for past three years and it has been one of the best shows. This is the first show we did since our company opened and since then it has been great. It may be a relatively small show, but the buyers coming here are very responsive and there is genuine interest in buying the products rather than just networking. The reason it is unique is because of the amount of time I can spend with a customer compared to other shows. I will be here next year.”
“We have had two excellent days and made really good contacts. We have met with several large retailers, including Lulu and Carrefour, and we are looking forward to next year's show.”
“It is our first time on SIAL Middle East and we are very happy with it and astonished by the results. Only on the first day we had more contacts than in any other fair in Europe for four days.”
"I chose to exhibit at SIAL ME because of the premium features that it offers, especially the high-speed networking meetings and SIAL Innovation Awards which are exclusive to SIAL ME. Out of the four trade shows I have done this year throughout the world, I find that SIAL Middle East had the highest ROI for my company."
"SIAL is obviously growing, however, it is not like other exhibitions where you have over 100,000 visitors. Any buyers that come to the stand, you can actually spend quality time with them which I think is very good."
"We came back this year due to the excellent results from last year. This year after our participation at SIAL Middle East, we are expecting to sign contracts worth $20 million over the 12 months."
