In addition, the official report contained a number of exhibitor testimonials. A few examples of these can be read below:
Markus Schnitzlein, CEO, Chromasens: "The trade fair went extremely well. The first two days were much better than we expected. There were fewer visitors on the last day, but overall it was an excellent trade fair. We had many regular customers at our stand. A good deal of new projects are coming our way. We primarily use VISION as a platform for partner meetings in order to discuss new cooperative ventures. Compared to 2012, we had the feeling that there were significantly more prospective customers from Asia. A good quarter of our sales can be attributed to Asia. For us, Asian partners are currently the main drivers on the market."
Dr. Thomas Kessler, Executive VP Global Sales & European Operations, Edmund Optics: "VISION started off slow for us, but grew constantly. The second day was an extremely busy day. The stand was full, we were dashing from one meeting to another, and had very effective and interesting contacts, of whom many were new. Never before had we experienced such a day at VISION. It is difficult to judge at the moment how the two-year cycle has impacted VISION. I believe it is beneficial. At any rate, everyone is back again plus some newcomers. In this respect, he mentioned that the trade fair experienced an upturn."
Torsten Wiesinger, President of IDS, Imaging Development Systems: "Following a break of two years, we were full of anticipation for the trade fair, the expectations with regard to the number of contacts was correspondingly high. On the whole, these expectations were even exceeded - also in terms of the quality of the contacts. Our trade fair stand was highly frequented on all three trade fair days. Despite a significant increase in the number of our stand personnel, we sometimes reached our capacity limits. VISION was also able to register an increase with regard to the origin of the trade fair visitors: significantly more guests than in 2012, including visitors from Asia, the USA, as well as the UK and France, made their way to our stand. The two-year cycle helps us present fully developed products, which can also be supplied. This also definitely represents added value for the trade fair visitors."
