Feedback from AstanaBuild 2023 exhibitors

Anton Demshin, Sales Director, Onviz:

Our impressions of AstanaBuild are only good, the exhibition helped us meet our current clients and find new ones. The Kazakhstani market is interesting for us, which is why we came here. We take part in the exhibition, we work actively, and we are happy with the results. Within two days, we signed contracts and made 3-5 agreements. One contract has already been paid in cash immediately at the exhibition, right at our stand. We consider it to be a great achievement. The decision about participation in the exhibition next year has not been made yet, but we are believe we will participate in it.

Ivan Chernyaev, Head of Glass and Insulating Glass Sales Department, Agran LLP:

The AstanaBuild exhibition is organized at the highest level. Everything is excellent, I like it all, I noticed no critical moments. As for the audience, there is constant interest in our products. This also depends on how we exhibit; we put a lot of effort into this, which has an effect on the clients. There are also many people who are ready to cooperate with us, we have got positive reviews. Next year we hope to participate again, and it will be even more productive and interesting.

Karina Alexeyeva, Project Manager, Fasadnye tekhnologii – Astana LLP:

AstanaBuild is an excellent exhibition, and this is not the first year our company has taken part in it. This year, there are too few construction topics, especially facades, but there are many other types of products. Peaople were really interested in our stand, we liked everything, and we had more visitors than ever! We were very happy with it. We gathered a lot of groundwork for future cooperation. I think that after this exhibition we will create something productive.

Artem Martynov, Sales Manager, NORMA Group:

This is the first time we have taken part in AstanaBuild. We were really happy with the line-up of exhibitors this year. We had the opportunity to talk to both designers and developers from various companies. We had good contacts with representatives of BI Group, the largest property developers in Kazakhstan. In addition to meetings on civil construction, we had a productive meeting with representatives of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation in Kazakhstan. We also had contacts with a representative of the British Consulate General in Almaty, and had a productive discussion on the use of machinery in the construction of buildings being constructed, including in Astana. We see this exhibition as a good start to moving forward. Next year we plan to take part in this exhibition and the thematic construction exhibition Aquatherm Almaty.

Badalyan Roman, General Director, Universe Business Group:

This is my first time in Kazakhstan, and I am very pleased to be your guest. I think that participation in AstanaBuild is very useful for our company, in particular for our cluster. We represent an industrial cluster, and we have more than 20 factories. We hope for cooperation and future success. Visitors were interested in us, gave us their contacts, and asked questions about prices. We had verbal agreements, which gives us reason to believe that we will have some orders. Next year's participation depends on the number of orders. If we receive positive feedback from potential clients in Kazakhstan, then next year we will exhibit a separate, larger stand. Since Kazakhstan and Georgia are two friendly republics, we have a great opportunity to participate and present ourselves.

Yelena Ermakova, General Director, profine RUS:

I would like to thank you for the organisation, the AstanaBuild exhibition is certainly very important for us. This year we decided to participate in the exhibition with our already known brand in the Kazakhstani market, and we also brought a new brand to introduce it to the broad market. Starting this year, we would like to introduce this premium product, which is very well known in the German and European markets, in Kazakhstan as well, as the huge scale of construction in Kazakhstan, directly in Astana and Almaty, which is planned for the expansion of satellite cities, requires a quality approach and technology and products that we do have. And now, as part of the exhibition, we are holding meetings with our partners, developers, and technical experts to prepare work on our products.

Our primary objective is to expand our business and partnership. We have a lot to offer to the market and construction industry. The concept of our company in the world is that we build cities together and work actively with developers in Russia and Belarus and we consider it a priority to expand our partnership in Kazakhstan. We would like to take part in AstanaBuild 2024 and we see that it is necessary for our partners and developers. We, as a company, offer not only products, but also services and technologies that we have, and we are ready to share them and provide consultations. Today we had seminars on BIM modeling and design. There are a lot of details that we as system integrators explain and tell our partners about in order to make construction and real estate of even higher quality and to anticipate the details that could have a negative impact on the operation of buildings and structures during the design stage. We are confident that our decision to participate in the exhibition will have a positive impact on our joint work and business in the near future.


Feedback from AstanaBuild 2022 exhibitors

Marat Baitasov, Head of Plastmak

The impressions of participation in the AstanaBuild exhibition were only positive. The exhibition is held at a high level, this is a significant event for our city, for our capital. We will perform in the coming years. As for the interest of visitors, we are satisfied. Our promo code worked very well, our company took first place in attracting visitors, there were a lot of target audiences in three days. I am glad that the interest in equipment for the production of plastic and aluminum windows in Kazakhstan is very large. Our company is engaged in the supply of equipment from Turkey to Kazakhstan, that is, for visitors to the AstanaBuild exhibition, we offer to purchase high-quality equipment for a reasonable fee.

Tatyana Sergeyeva, brand manager of Raduga Paint and Varnish Plant

The impressions of participation in the AstanaBuild exhibition are quite good. The organization is of high quality, we were visited by many visitors, during the days of the exhibition we have collected many useful contacts, including designers and industrial developers. We are satisfied. We interested the audience of other expositions, who were also interested in our novelties. All three days we held a master class, which provided a large number of visitors. Everyone could try our products and see how easy it is to apply. I advise you to hold master classes and presentations right at your stand, and you will always have the audience. People love to experience it for themselves.

Andron Oganesov, Deputy Director of AVANSUM

The impressions of participation in the AstanaBuild exhibition are only positive. I want to express my gratitude to the organizers for the opportunity to participate in such a grandiose event. We are the first time on the territory of Kazakhstan, we are surprised by the interest in our products. We have already opened representative offices in the Republic of Kazakhstan, so we are ready to start cooperation with developers, with other entrepreneurs in the construction industry. Our plant solves the issues of construction of any format in terms of the volume of products produced and the breadth of the lines. Starting from standard, budget options, ending with premium class, domed glazing. Also this year we are introducing the production of wooden windows. Therefore, one supplier - one solution. The attendance of the audience was very active, we had 150 catalogs prepared as planned, all 150 catalogs were sorted out on the first day, that is, the traffic of our stand is good. We even received an award for this. There were a lot of profile requests, we held negotiations, during the exhibition we immediately made online calculations, within an hour we designed full-scale projects. During the days of the exhibition, primarily oral and 2 written agreements for cooperation were concluded.

Christina Yevstegneyeva, PR manager of Mogilefliftmash

AstanaBuild exhibition made a favorable impression, we expected even less effect. There were a lot of contacts, a lot of contracts were concluded, we found a lot of potential clients, with whom we plan to continue our business relations in the future, develop and we generally see great potential in Kazakhstan. Therefore, every year we try to participate in this exhibition. The exhibition is really organized at the highest level, the organizers did their best, there are no nuances, so we will continue to actively participate in the future. I think that the success of participation depends largely on the preparation for this event. It is necessary to send out newsletters so that as many potential customers as possible come to your stand. Therefore, if you are a beginner, then you need to do preliminary work, work out your field, invite more visitors in order for it to be a really effective exhibition, and not just go and wait for visitors. You need to work on your own, without shifting all responsibility to the organizers. Also important, of course, is the stand. There was a time when we came only with brochures, with catalogs, but we understand that this is not as effective as exhibiting samples. Therefore, this time we presented a rather large sample - a 1,000 kg ton cabin. Indeed, this is a “wow effect”, and it is it who attracts the audience to our stand. Therefore, we advise beginners to bring visual samples with them. It really helps to attract potential clients.
