A positive mood with a focus on business
Elmia Subcontractor 2014 was characterised by a positive atmosphere all round plus masses of productive meetings. Many significant deals were made at the fair, including many between the exhibitors themselves.
“The fact that business meetings are held throughout the entire supply chain gives the fair a very special dynamism,” says the fair’s project manager Karla Eklund.
Sweden’s new Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, Mikael Damberg (Social Democrat), was the fair’s opening speaker. He stressed the importance of more export, innovations and investments for a stronger future.
“Elmia Subcontractor is hugely important to the industry,” he said. “It is here that subcontractors find out what’s happening in the market. This is also where discussions are held about the industry’s next steps. We must now consider how we can take up the baton in order to develop the next generation of industry.”
Elmia Subcontractor, which will celebrate its 40th year in 2015, this year marked the 10thanniversary of its matchmaking service, Subcontractor Connect. Since being launched, the event has matched companies in almost 10,500 meetings for a total value of over 1 billion euro.
“One of the fair’s guiding principles is business benefit. I’m very proud that we, together with Enterprise Europe Network and the Scandinavian Automotive Supplier Association, have created such a successful, profitable and appreciated event,” comments Elmia Subcontractor’s project manager Karla Eklund.
