More than 1.100 seats have been booked in our technical conference and 350 invited guests enjoyed the Solvator award ceremony. 65 different brochures in mostly Englisch and German have been available as printed version as well as in the download area of the website and brand new the “fair app”. Also the “best for the best” merchandising collection – supporting our main emotional campaign for stick electrodes and distributed via raffle promotion has been well received by our guests.
