«This is the first time we have taken part in an event like this. I was surprised at the quality and quantity of visitors, who were not idle curiosity, but precisely our target customers. We had around 100-150 brochures to hand out per day - this was only for interested customers. There was also an interesting business programme. We managed to attend, but not as much as we would have liked».

Elena Meshcheriakova, Director of  «Ingredients & Additives – 2022» exhibition, commented on the results of the event: «Despite the fact that Ingredients & Additives is a new MVK project, I would like to point out the high efficiency of companies' participation in it. According to the results of three days the number of «hot» contacts of the exhibitors exceeded the expectations. So, the company «Composite» physically managed to process about 50 contacts per day only because it was difficult to predict such a number of leads and therefore there were not enough employees at the booth. Having been convinced of the productivity of the exhibition, almost all participants applied for the next year».
«Ingredients & Additives – 2023» exhibition and conference will take place April 4-6 in Moscow, at the Crocus Congress Hall, a modern exhibition venue that is ranked among the top five largest exhibition centres in the world.
