Busworld Russia's sales already up to speed
The second edition of Busworld Russia powered by Autotrans will take place from 25 to 27 October 2017 in the IEC Crocus Expo in Moscow. After a positive first edition in 2016, this second edition is having a good start.
In 2016 the first edition was attended by 3,460 industry professionals from 60 regions of Russia and 36 countries.
A visitor survey learned that 63% of visitors were budget holders and persons influencing decisions on its allocation. 34% of specialists visited the exhibition with the intention to carry out purchases in the amount of 50,000 USD to 500,000 USD. 21% noted that they planned to conclude contracts for over 500,000 USD.
The intention to participate in the Busworld Russia exhibition in 2018 has already been announced by the largest OEM's and suppliers as well as aftermarket companies: KAMAZ, NEFAZ, GAZ Group, Minsk Automobile Plant (MAZ), MAN, Iveco, Anadolu Isuzu (Turkey), Yutong, Higer, King Long, Golden Dragon, Neman, Camozzi, Webasto, Air Conditioners Plant August, Alcor, Oto Numune (Turkey), JVS (China), Hidral Gobel (Italy) and others.
There certainly is a trend of increased booth sizes in comparison to the 2016 edition. This reflects not only the current situation on the market - the enormous growth of the bus market by 37% compared to the previous year-, but also the increasing competition of Russian and foreign manufacturers.
Busworld Russia powered by Autotrans promises to be an interesting exhibition. Keep tuned.
