It was a vintage year for Micronora 2010, just finished, with a bumper crop of qualified leads, focused projects and firm orders, particularly in the machine tools sector. A brisk business atmosphere prevailed in every area of the exhibition, a definite sign that capital expenditure is picking up.
The number of visitors, at 14, 206 (just 2.7% fewer than in 2008), is more or less stable compared to previous sessions, with peak attendance on the Wednesday and Thursday. Despite the slight fall in visitor numbers, exhibitors underlined the quality of leads, demonstrating that in times of economic crisis, quality takes precedence over quantity and that it’s the decision-makers with genuine requirements who make the effort to attend, as the figures below confirm.
Micronora has fared well in the recession due to the fact that microtechnologies play an increasingly significant role in industry worldwide and are one of the most dynamic sectors. With countless fields of application and the possibility of transfer from one sector to another, microtechnologies have an undeniable advantage which enables businesses to diversify and open up to new markets.
