I've been impressed with the diversity of suppliers at the show. I've met with companies from around the globe as well as those focusing on American made.
The Symposium sessions have been informative and interesting. It’s good to see where technology is going. I have been to the show in Frankfurt and I always get a lot out of the sessions, no matter the location. I am looking forward to next year.
We were very pleased with this year's show. We had visitors nonstop for 3 days - existing customers, new customers, customers bringing their contacts to our booth. We were able to make relationships with other exhibitors due to being the only exhibitor of our kind, providing a lot of new project opportunities. We are really happy with the turnout.
For such a short period of time, the show provided a great deal of value, and many visitors to our booth seemed to be inspired by the combination of science and creativity that our students offered.
