Mykola Azarov, the Prime Minister of Ukraine, on his visit to the first day of the KyivBuild 2012 exhibition, emphasised the importance of attracting investment in the construction industry, stating that "it is very important for us to create all the necessary conditions to improve credit provision and investment in the construction industry." Mr Azarov said that Ukraine would do everything possible to bring construction output back up to pre-economic crisis levels, adding that the Government plans to support producers of construction equipment. "Above all, we are paying close attention to energy efficient construction technology, and will support the development of modern equipment."
During his visit to the exhibition, the Prime Minister examined stands featuring technology for energy-efficient and ‘green' construction, such as LEDs, energy-saving lighting, and highly-insulated wall panels for housing construction. The key theme of the exhibition and its business programme was urban planning and the sustainable development of the modern city. Mr Azarov paid close attention to the General Plan for Kiev featured at the event, and Kiev's chief architect Sergey Tselovalnik gave a presentation to the Prime Minister on the development plan for Kiev's social and transport infrastructure.
Exhibitors at KyivBuild 2012:
Vitali Krumius, Sales and Marketing Manager, and Vadim Grechin, Technical Consultant, Wienerberger:
"The company exhibited at KyivBuild for the first time this year, and we were very happy with how it went: the exhibitor numbers and mix were encouraging, and everybody managed to secure work at their stands. The visitors were exactly our potential clients, such as construction companies, property developers, and also investors in housing construction, and they came from every region of Ukraine. I would like to mention in particular that the exhibition was clearly designed according to the separate sectors of the construction industry."
Aleksandr Redka, Director, Aiss Group:
"We take part in every high-profile exhibition and forum related to our field. This year, KyivBuild was particularly lively, and its results fully justified the participation costs. Out of the visitors to our stand, half we had invited and the rest were new clients. KyivBuild is an occasion to showcase our latest developments, and we ordered and transported new technology especially for the event."
Mariana Penzyakova, Overseas Business Development Manager, Elidizia:
"We brought three types of modern building materials to the exhibition: flexible brick slips, self-levelling floors, and three-layer insulating panels with decorative trim. Our technical managers gave informative demonstrations of how to use the new products in masterclasses from the company's exhibition stand, and the visitors were extremely interested in our products. We were pleased with the exhibition, as we had received a number of promising proposals from potential dealers in Ukraine already on the first day of the event."
Galina Gudenko, Sales and Marketing Manager, Dormash Group:
"Dormash Group exhibited at the event for the first time this year, and we presented concrete mixing machinery and other examples of our flagship products. In terms of visitors, this exhibition is ahead of its competitors. Around a third of those visiting our stand were from our key market, which is a good sign for our industry sector."
Vladimir Dikun, Sales Manager, Everlast:
"We were satisfied with the exhibition: we had a successful and agreeable space in front of the pavilion to present our technology, and the visitors could see the products right there and then.
Our company supplies the Ukrainian market with tanks and trailers for long-distance freight, and we have much to offer consumers. Our customers are medium and large companies in the oil trade, road construction, and large-scale transport of food products and fertiliser sectors. The exhibition took place in February, and it has given us enough orders and work to keep us busy the whole summer.
"KyivBuild is an excellent opportunity to meet with existing partners and source new ones. Personal, face-to-face contact, which this event offers us, is very important in our business. At the exhibition, we can immediately gauge the reaction of customers and get direct feedback, which is essential both for developing the business and for assessing and adjusting marketing and sales strategies."
Vlada Kopecka, Senior Export Manager, TechniStone:
"We exhibited at this year's event alongside Merx, our Ukrainian partners. For our company, the exhibition was a massive success. It was encouraging to see the interest of our key audience in our stand, and we would like to thank the organisers for the steady flow of visitors, who were exactly those with an interest in our products- stone processing companies, architects, and end consumers. We were particularly please with the number of visitors, especially compared with European exhibitions."
