Qiu Debo, Executive Director/CEO & President, Lonking Holdings Limited, China
As a longtime exhibitor of bauma China, I think it is becoming more mature and professional in recent years. This year in particular we are having more in-depth cooperation with bauma China, for the ever-improving quality of the trade show. Through years of accumulated experience, bauma China now features more standard procedures and has made its brand better known in the industry. I have attended many similar trade shows. I found that they had fewer visitors, and the exhibitors were also not as active as those of bauma China. For this exhibition we have prepared for over a year in order to attract professional visitors to our booth!
Han Dong, Vice Director, Sales Support, Komatsu Construction Machinery, Japan
There are a lot of visitors at bauma China and we met a lot of professional customers. bauma China provides a very good platform for us to exhibit our products and technologies.

Li Fangyu, VP Marketing of China, Volvo Construction Equipment, Sweden
bauma China 2014 is taking place in the midst of a recession in the construction machinery market. However, judging by the exhibitors and VIP customers we met here, the trade show is very encouraging. At such times, bauma China is giving us vitality, hope and spirit. In regard to visitors, the number of pre-registered visitors for our activities surpassed past years. We believe it is because of the influence bauma China has gained in Asia as well as worldwide. Our sales department says that the orders we received at the trade show have already grown beyond our expectations.
