The three-day event welcomed 360 exhibitors from 18 countries and regions as well as 8,626 visitors from 81 countries and regions. This means since its debut in 2007, RemaxAsia Expo has become the world’s largest trade event for the aftermarket printer supplies industry.
This year, the steady traffic of more professional visitors kept exhibitors very satisfied. The number of visitors exceeded the expectations of the organizer, Recycling Times Media Corporation. Recycling Times did expect to host a record 8,000 visitors before the show. Having 8% more again was a vote of confidence in the show’s ability to deliver an experience, solutions and new networking opportunities. The complimentary hotel package campaign and the VIP lounge service were valued and appreciated by the visitors and exhibitors.
