Comments from some of our exhibitors on the 2017 events:
With three years of exhibition experience, our company's management decided this year for the first time that we would display the newest models of our exclusive premium brand at the HOME Design trade show.
Regarding both the number of visitors and number of orders placed, the event far surpassed our expectations.
We would like to be one of the leading participants of the exhibition in the coming years.
Zoltán Soós, SMEG Showroom Budapest
Our company manufactures and sells fireplaces that we design ourselves.
We took part in the exhibition together with PIKTOR Kft., our partner company in Győr.
Our dealership in Budapest, Fürjes Fireplaces, provided the commercial background.
Close to 2,500 visitors came to our stand during the five days of the exhibition, based on the number of catalogues distributed. Eight business deals were done on site, which was 10% better than last year. We expanded our number of partners with two new retailers, which didn't happen in 2013.
Our nationwide partner network also took part in the sale connected with the exhibition (2-23 April). During this time, our sales revenue associated with the exhibition was 16% higher than in the previous year.
Overall, our participation in the fair lived up to expectations, and we ended our time there satisfied.
We will most likely participate in the 2015 exhibition as well.

“Each market sector needs a comprehensive professional event where competitors, partners and potential consumers can all gather under one roof. As the demand for construction projects is on the rise, Construma has an especially important role in presenting our novelties, our complex, now also flat-top roof solutions in one bundle to private customers, thus inspiring residential project owners already in the planning phase. That is why we participate in this exhibition year by year to showcase our innovations, so that we could meet consumers, partners and join the professional forums.”
Gábor Miheller, managing director, Bramac Ltd.
“The flexibility of the Hungexpo team is amazing. They helpfully and honestly guide exhibitors’ organizers and marketing staff along the road to a successful presentation. They are great to work with!”
András Lányi, marketing manager, FAKRO Hungary Ltd.
„Both in relation to Construma as well as our more specialized field, Hungarotherm is one of the most important events for us. It’s good to identify a reliable and suitably high quality event where both our professional and end-user partners can present their latest products. We feel the presence of constructors is important at exhibitions in order familiarize themselves with continuously developing and expanding construction industry solutions and to make conscious decisions on the technical content to be installed.”
Ákos Chappon – company manager, Helios fans, Kamleithner-Budapest Kft.
Comments from some of our exhibitors on the 2013 events:
This year's Construma came as a definitely positive surprise. In view of the difficulties facing the construction industry we had doubts and thought the fair would attract significantly less visitors than it usually does. By contrast, the first three days - for representatives of the profession - saw an unexpectedly large number of visitors. Our stand was visited by a very large number of trade partners, roof builders and architects. We could show our novelties and the development we had achieved. Saturday and Sunday on the other hand, when the fair was open to the general public, provided end users and buyers with excellent opportunities to gather some technical information and to get to know the company and the products in more detail. Construma is definitely something that should be organised over and over again, paying particular attention to the interests of manufacturers and making the exhibition accessible to the widest possible audience, laying emphasis on the technical/professional nature of the event. If we can, we will definitely come back next year to show our products and ourselves in the Construma exhibition!
Henrietta Németh, CREATON Hungary Kft.
As always, we were very satisfied with the Construma / Hungarotherm exhibition this time again. The most important aspect for us is the number of visitors. On each day of the event we met some 200-300 interested partners or potential partners at our stand, most of whom were mechanics or contractors. This is crucial, since they play a major role in end-users? decision making. The accompanying professional programmes raised the standards of the event even higher. If we can afford to, we will definitely come back and participate in your exhibitions.
Balázs Toldi, Hőtechnikai és Gépipari Kft.
HERZ Armatúra Hungária Kft. found the Hungarotherm exhibition - in combination with the Reneo exhibition of renewable energy sources - to be quite a challenge. Since our company is massively present in both segments, we combined the two exhibitions in a larger stand. After recent exhibitions that attracted smaller numbers of visitors we had some concern about the level of interest but those concerns were swept away by the very first day of the event, when our stand was visited by unexpected numbers of trade visitors. This trend continued nearly until the very end of the exhibition, though on the last two days we saw an increased number of consumer visitors, keeping our staff constantly busy. On the whole, we had the honour of participating in an event with large numbers of visitors from our target audience.
Balázs Marosi, HERZ Armatúra Hungária Kft.
We have been regular exhibitors in the OTTHONDesign (HOMEDesign) exhibition for years now. One great advantage of the event is that many of its visitors are actually looking for business, rather than just having a good time looking around. Those who are really interested in what is on show, sooner or later become customers. We have found that the invested energy, work and money produce multiple returns!
