Evgeniy Lomakin, Sales Manager, Marioff (Russia)
- I came to the exhibition in Baku purposefully. The fact is that the company I represent is engaged in the production of automatic fire extinguishing systems with finely divided water. Therefore, the Caspian International Protection, Security and Rescue Exhibition, Securex Caspian, aroused my interest. The Azerbaijani market has been our longstanding target, and now we are analysing its prospects, and therefore it was interesting for us to get more information about it. One of the important tools for such an analysis, we considered the exhibition. It was important for us to understand who represents the segment of interest to us at the exhibition. I must note that we managed to get the necessary information. I had many interesting meetings with the exhibitors, which in the future can help in our promotion in the local market. The main thing that left a good impression was professionalism, knowledge and understanding of the situation, which was demonstrated by representatives of participating companies. A number of meetings were scheduled by me in advance; I met with a few companies right at the exhibition. But once again, my impressions of the exhibition and the participants are the best.
