‘Quality meets Decision-Makers’ - this is certainly true when you look at the facts and figures for LogiMAT 2016.

40.7 % of the trade visitors came to Stuttgart with a specific intention to invest. 20.4 %* of the visitors placed orders directly at the fair or made a firm commitment to the exhibitors to do so after the fair.

As an efficient ‘B2B fair for decision-makers’, this sector platform more than does justice to its ‘quality first’ claim.
