We are completely satisfied with the Exhibition and will be back next time. It is a very focused event that gives us the opportunity to meet a lot of key suppliers and our customers. Other big advantages are the compact Exhibition layout of IT-TRANS and of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre itself making it simple and quick to get around.
