This was my first visit to Remax Asia Pacific and I was impressed by the professionalism of the organizers. Forum subjects and invited speakers were very carefully selected and I am sure that all visitors can agree with me that this was a useful event. The show next 3 days was also very well organized and talking to companies that we are in contact, I can say that it was a success for all of them. Visitors from Russia sent me mails confirming that they had good chance and opportunity not only to meet exhibitors, but also to visit their factories in Zhuhai. Some of them are already working on purchase orders and I am sure that next year they will be again in Zhuhai. The selection of Zhuhai as expo ground is a smart idea and I am sure that Remax Asia Pacific has a great future.
