Silke Weiss | KNAUFINSULATION
"To us IEX is a very important meeting point for the industry. Here we meet processers with whom we are not in touch on a regular basis. Especially the international audience of the trade fair is important to us. This year we were able to welcome numerous processers and dealers from France, the BeNeLux states as well as from the Nordic states. In view of the future development of the industry we believe that sustainable building will – and has to become ever more important. We must continue honing in on the “insulation” theme so as to save both costs and energy. There is vast untapped potetnial – also for IEX. We would therefore very much welcome if the trade fair develoed further in this sense and as a result attracts more planners for whom this theme is centre stage.”
Bernard Vercaemst | CEO IPCOM n.v.
"IEX went very, very well for us. It is a key trade fair to present ourselves to the market. And we have achieved this aim this year. Compared to previous years we felt we had met with a more broad-based target audience from different industries this time. The quality of the exhibition has increased in general. But the trade fair could be positioned more broadly in terms for insulation materials, for example, so as to achieve an even wider exhibitor portfolio. But IEX is on the right track. The sector is interested in expanding its knowledge base and fields of activity. If Reed Exhibitions develops the trade fair further and takes it to the next level in order to tap into even more potential, we will definitely be back next year.”
Volker Christmann | ROCKWOOL
“As an established partner of the insulation service provides we want to see a strong industry forum for the successful exchange between planners, processers and industry. IEX - Insulation Expo Europe has undertaken many efforts since it latest edition to let processers and planners know that Cologne boasts the pooled competence and IEX is well worth visiting. Deutsche ROCKWOOL in turn has assembled all of its specialists in the fields of building technology and industrial insulation to help Reed Exhibitions to deliver on its promises. After all, one thing is for sure: such as specialized sector needs the exchange on the highest level. IEX cannot succeed without a detailed, visitor-oriented preparation of each individual exhibitor.”
Michael Moreau | Promat Industry
“IEX is a top event for us. It went a lot better than expected and we came with high expectations. IEX is the THE event for our industry. Everyone busy in this sector, is here. The contacts made are of a very high quality and the movement is enormously high. We meet not only new potential buyers here but also existing customers. The international attendance is very high, which is an important factor for us since we are a global player active in 35 countries. We have already booked space for 2018.”
Achim Aulke | Paroc GmbH
“We look back on a successful trade fair with numerous visitors from Germany and abroad stopping at our stand. On our “Paroc Demo” wall we showcased our latest fire protection solutions and deepen many technical conversations. This year we have again reached our target visitor group, which is multi-faceted and also includes installers, plant engineers, architects and planners alongside insulation material dealers. Visitors from Germany but also a strikingly high number of international trade visitors from all over Europe called on our stand. We particularly delight at the international trade fair audience – being an insulation materials manufacturer with production and distribution sites throughout Europe.”
Markus Biland | MABI AG
“We were virtually “overrun” at IEX 2016 – not least because of the many innovations on display at out stand. To us IEX is the THE trade fair when it comes to all things insulation technology. Which is also why it is an ideal platform for MABI to present novel items. Our customers’ enthusiasm was clearly reflected in our sales figures. And this was certainly also helped by MABI’s numerous launches. The outlook for the industry continues to be very good and the thermal insulation theme is as topical as ever.”
Michael Wiessner | SAINT-GOBAIN ISOVER G+H AG
“IEX proved the ideal platform for us to get into personal touch with our customers and receive valuable feedback. Our innovative ULTIMATE solutions convinced installers, planners and dealers alike – and even on an international level. We also come here, of course, to measure up against our competitors, thereby showing our customers that they have the right partner by their side in ISOVER – a partner who develops advanced solutions for them with a view to enabling more efficient work. We also clearly felt at the ISOVER stand that the trade fair has attracted more visitors yet again than in previous years. Our consultants succeeded in having more conversations than at previous events and we can draw a very positive conclusion.”
