89% of the exhibitors of this year's Metal & Steel intend to either increase or take the same stand size

However, apart from these good results, the high level of real interest was noteworthy and absolutely important given the difficult political climate across the region. Most of the exhibitors interviewed said that they had met competent trade people during the 3-day exhibition who were keen on starting and maintaining trade relations.

This clearly shows, once again, the distinguishing feature of the steel: despite the situation, this sector has always demonstrated it inexhaustible vitality. Companies, whether suppliers or customers, are always on the move around the region on people to meet, and not to miss out on the most important appointments. According to most of the exhibitors interviewed, during the 3 days they met competent people who were determined to enter into, and maintain commercial dealings.
