While talking to the exhibitors about the show, they expressed their concern regarding the visitor response. Many feel that the show could have done better if the organisers had done some effective marketing. Few other believe that the current situation of the Power Market is not very good which is being reflected on this show too.

“The show is good but we feel that that organisers should give clear instructions to the exhibitors about how should we go about right from entering the venue.” – Ms. Lisa Cai, JET Inc.

“We have been participating in Power-Gen from past 4 years and I am seeing the show shrinking each year.” – Mr. Dharmendra Chauhan, Dy. Manager – Marketing – Indian Rubber Products

“Considering the prevailing condition of the Power Market which is not very good from past 5 years, this show is okay. We are hoping that the show will pick up some speed in the remaining two days.” – Mr. Balvinder Singh, Head Sales – Beumer India Limited

“This is the first time that we are participating in this show and the show is going good.” – Ms. Dora Zhuo, Sales – Ningbo Hi-tech Yuanchang Technology Co. Ltd.

“I participate in Power-Gen every year and this year the visitor response has been less so far. I think the show needs better marketing and visitor awareness.”
– Mr. Sanjay Kumar, Product Manager – FORBES Marshall

“The Power Market scenario as such is bad. Still we come to interact at this platform. But I can see that many companies who used to participate have not put up there stall this year.” – Mr. BS Jamwal, VP – BBM Acoustiv India Pvt. Ltd.

“I have been participating in Power-Gen from past 8 years and this show has only helped us in showing our presence in the industry. It has also given a easy access to our clients to meet and display our new products.” – Mr. Mehul Shah, GM (Mktg) – MECHWELL Industries Ltd.

Power-Gen has been one of the leading names in Power Industry trade shows. Looking at the history of participation it is clear that the show had managed to win the loyalty of its exhibitors in the past as many of them have been associated with the show for more than 8-10 years. But, probably because of the difficulties facing power sector and due to the lack of some marketing strategies the show is not losing its loyal exhibitors. But hopes are still high for the coming editions as both the Organiser are leaders in organising trade shows in this sector.
