„We worked together very well as a team with the organizer. Besides operational detailes which is part of the usual process  we also provided support to Quartz Media in exhibitor aquisition by utilizig our domestic industry network and contacts. This type of cooperation was somewhat new and fruitful way of working with clients and make the event a success.” -says Anita Kristóf, event sales director.

I have been involved in event organisations over the last twenty years and I have been in contact with so many different venues. Normally, the support is… let´s say ok. But what I would say about the team of Hungexpo is: They have actually furthered their support, they are helping in marketing, in getting new contacts, in getting in touch with the Hungarian market. This is almost like a partnership. The venue itself is fine, it is up to modern European standards, all the services are provided.” John Lane, Sales Director of Quartz Chemicals, the company organising Chemspec.
