Better than any other marketing medium, an exhibition gives buyers the opportunity to see, test and ask technical questions to the machinery manufacturer or their specialist agent. This was clearly demonstrated this year at ProPak and China BevTek 2011 where exhibitors had more machinery on display than ever before. For those that brought machines many reported successful sales:
