“Just visiting the fair once is not enough. It’s really important to maintain continuity and keep coming back,” explains coordinator Anette Flies.
Industrisamarbejdet Danmark works to improve its members’ opportunities for growth and improved competitiveness. This is the eighth year in a row that Anette Flies from the organisation is attending Elmia Subcontractor. The joint stand is exhibiting a range of products – mainly from the metalworking industry – that demonstrates the members’ breadth.
The organisation consists of 10,000 private companies in the fields of manufacturing and services. In order to be able to satisfy new demands from politicians, organisations and other companies, Flies says it’s important to maintain an open dialogue with the rest of the industrial sector.
“Elmia Subcontractor is absolutely our biggest meeting place,” she says. “We meet almost all our members’ customers here and have many opportunities for exciting meetings with leading figures in the industry. This strengthens our association’s external communications, not to mention how we also clear a path for our companies.”
She and her colleague Finn E. Pedersen are both very satisfied with the number of visitors in previous years.
“So far we’ve never been unhappy with our results from the fair and we expect this to continue,” he says.
