I was invited by Phoenix Contact South East Asia to visit the Hanover Fair and also a tour of their Factory in Blomberg. This was my maiden trip to Germany so I was very excited about it!
It was a fun gathering of customers, distributors and Phoenix Contact personnel from all over the world to come together to communicate, exchange ideas, build relationships and to get more market insights.
I was with the South East Asia team which consisted of people from Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines & Thailand. They are a group of nice guys and it was fun talking to them.
I was most impressed during the Phoenix Contact factory visit where I had the opportunity to look at the sophistication of the automated machines to produce the parts and also the warm hospitality of Phoenix Contact.
The Hanover Fair is the largest industrial fair in the world with 27 halls with over 6000 exhibitors. Phoenix Contact was the 3rd biggest exhibitor in the fair. The booth was very impressive with lots of visitors.
New products introduction is the key highlight for Phoenix Contact during this fair and what caught my attention are the Automatic Stripping & Crimping Device and The Unique Charging Systems that can be both AC and DC.
Overall it is a very refreshing and insightful experience for both the factory tour and Hannover Fair. I had a deeper understanding of Phoenix Contact products. I would highly recommend to those who have not been there, to be there !!!
