For the first time in the more than 18-year company history of Machineseeker, we attended the ReTEC international second-hand machinery fair in Augsburg. Members of the Machineseeker team joined company founder and Managing Director Thorsten Muschler in greeting many well-known faces – and plenty of new ones.
“The fair was a complete success. It was wonderful to meet so many of our long-standing, loyal customers,” says Muschler. “Some of the exhibitors have been using our platform since the very beginning. It was extremely gratifying to finally get such positive feedback in person.”
Sales Manager Mario Gorzanelli feels exactly the same way: “Before the fair, I only knew most of the dealers that we met from talking to them on the phone. Even in the age of digitisation, a platform like the trade fair is still an enormously important opportunity for personal exchange within the industry.”
More than 100 exhibitors from all over the world were highly pleased with the fair in Augsburg. In 2018, ReTEC will be held in Essen and surely attract many new visitors and exhibitors to North Rhine-Westphalia. We look forward to playing on our home turf next year!
