Associated Equipment Distributors (AED)
2019 Changsha International Construction Equipment Exhibition is an unprecedented and enjoyable event. Here, we have a good opportunity to meet many new friends and visit a lot of equipment.
In this process, the organizing committee has played a great role and is an important medium, helping our delegation members to complete various visits.
Construction Equipment Rental Association(CERA)
We are grateful for the invitation from the organizing committee, to represent India at Changsha International Construction Equipment Exhibition. CICEE 2019 is a successful event, where experts from the construction machinery industry all over the world gather. Thank you for your efforts in organizing this grand exhibition and for providing us with the most advanced infrastructure. We firmly believe that CICEE will become the number one exhibition in the world in the future. Here we offer our best wishes to CICEE.
Construction Machinery Association (Spain)
I want to extend my thanks to the Organizing Committee of Changsha International Construction Equipment Exhibition for inviting me to join the exhibition. I would also like to thank Ms. Zhou Juanping and her volunteer team for their excellent work, for helping me plan my trip, and for guiding me to visit different manufacturers' factories. I am honored to visit this exhibition, and a large number of outstanding exhibitors have also left a deep impression on me.
More importantly, I would like to thank the Hunan government and leaders of Changsha for their efforts to make Changsha a hub for construction machinery manufacturers.
I also hope that the cooperation between Hunan Province and Spain in this field could be further strengthened.
Korea Crane Association
1. Thank you for inviting four Korean experts to the exhibition.
2. At first, we thought this Changsha exhibition was a local activity, but its scale was bigger than we thought.
3. Zoomlion and Sany Heavy Industry rank as the top 20 construction machinery manufacturers in the world. They have successfully displayed their products in Changsha, on an impressive scale.
4. The exhibition hall has a spacious and clean environment. The transportation from the hotel to the exhibition pavilion is also very convenient.
5. We expect that in the future, China's construction machinery will occupy a large market share.
6. Many Chinese enterprises have introduced a spectrum of products, but we hope that more overseas manufacturers will participate in the future.
7. Compared with China's construction market, South Korea's construction market is not that large. From the standpoint of an invitee, I feel a little guilty. So, in the future, we will vigorously promote CICEE to enterprises in South Korea.
8. There is a slight inconvenience due to the lack of facilities around the exhibition hall, and the external large-scale advertising is also insufficient.
9. In the halls, there is insufficient staff proficient in English at the reception desk and places for rest are not enough.
10. As a seminar speaker: to achieve a good presentation effect, the speaker must be able to use the laptop with his mouse to point out the important material on the screen. However, when the speaker delivered his speech, there was no monitor in front of him, and the laptop is operated by an exhibition staff. Therefore, it was a pity that the speaker just read the manuscript and could not interact via the screen with the audience.
11. The place of the seminar and the way it was conducted could be improved.
Wang Min, Chairman of XCMG
Remarks: "The Hunan Provincial Party Committee and the provincial government made tremendous efforts in holding the construction machinery exhibition. I’d like to thank the secretary of the Hunan Provincial Party Committee. This is really a blessing for the construction machinery enterprises and the construction machinery industry".
