Sales Made on the Stand at Dubai Plastics Show
When display equipment is bought and paid for at the exhibition, you know that it has been a good show.
This was the first time that Bunting Europe had attended any exhibition in the Middle East. With a focus on plastics, Arabplast was the ideal show to promote our range of Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors.
With the UAE producing 25% of all plastics in the Gulf, staging the exhibition at the impressive World Trade Centre in Dubai was ideal. There are over 600 plastics factories in the UAE with further expansion planned.
“Arabplast gave us a real opportunity to learn about the plastics sector in the Middle East,” said Dave Hills, our Head of Sales. “There was a good footfall in the show with visitors from across the region.”
Bunting was the only company exhibiting Magnetic Separation equipment at the show. As a UK exporter, exhibiting at overseas shows is vitally important.
“Being at Arabplast enabled us to learn about the market. We found that visitors were searching for quality products and industry knowledge. There was a high level of interest in our Drawer Filter Magnets, especially when we demonstrated the strength of the Tube Magnets and how easy the system was to clean,” said Dave.
Display equipment was also purchased off the stand.
“It is unusual to sell equipment at a show,” explained Dave, “but at Arabplast we sold two systems. The client who purchased the Metal Separator [a combination of a FF Drawer Magnet mounted above a Quicktron Metal Detector] first visited us on Sunday. He then returned on Monday, first just to discuss the system in greater detail and then to test a sample. On Tuesday, we met the company’s Sales Manager, Purchasing Manager and CEO. They ordered, paid and then collected the Metal Separator at the end of the show.”
Another customer also purchased one of the FF Drawer Grate Magnets.
“Next time we need to bring more stock,” said Dave.
Arabplast is held every two years and Bunting will be back in 2019.
“This is a developing market and we are really excited by the potential. We intend to start appointing distributors across the region to provide local support.”
