RESULTS OF THE PAST EXHIBITION IN THE CITY OF SHITO FROM NOVEMBER 8 TO NOVEMBER 11
During the period from November 8 to November 11 in the city of Shitou (PRC), the specialized China International Stone Exhibition was held in the international exhibition center and attracted an exceptional attention from the professional community.
The exhibition was organized by Fujian Dongsheng Stone Industrial Co. Ltd. with official support from the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Trade.
The project is one of the three largest stone industry exhibitions in China. Within the framework of this Exhibition, the Karelian Company Real RK, together with such companies as KGD and Russian Granite, successfully presented their stands with Karelian granites that are unique for the Chinese market.
On the first day of the exhibition, a grand opening ceremony was held, at which representatives of government bodies, professional associations coordinating activities of the Stone Industry said welcoming words to the organizers, participants and guests of the Forum.
Comprehensive assistance and support for participation in the exhibition was provided by the Ministry of Economic Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The Minister of Economic Development of Karelia Pavel Vladimirovich Burenkov highly appreciated the contribution of Real RK, LLC to promotion of Gabbro-Diabase in the world market.
In his speech, the Minister emphasized that such events as the China Shuitou International Stone Fair were very useful for the work carried out by the Ministry to motivate domestic manufacturers. He also praised the exhibition composition, and expressed confidence that the current year in the Stone Industry will be no less dynamic than the previous one.
In turn, the Director of Real RK Andrey Nikolayevich Kirilyuk emphasized the role of the exhibition as a base platform for establishing a constructive dialogue between Karelian manufacturers, suppliers and final Chinese consumers.
This event was widely covered by representatives of the Chinese media, in particular the CCTV federal channel. The Karelian stand was also visited by representatives of the Chinese Communist Party, and the Mayors of Shitou, Xiamen and Nan’an.
All the days of the exhibition, Real RK hosted productive business negotiations with potential customers and participants of this event.
Talking about the advantages of their products, the employees of Real RK have repeatedly appreciated the high interest of representatives of Chinese business companies in Karelian granites.
During 4 days, a maximum of meetings was held and, as a result, preliminary agreements on cooperation were concluded.
During the negotiations, more than 50 exhibitors from China agreed to purchase blocks of such types as: Gabbro-Diabase, garnet amphibolite, green pyroxenite, calgouvara, taking into account their availability at a warehouse in Shitou City. In turn, Real RK sets itself the task of delivering these types of stones in the right amount as soon as possible.
During this trip, Representatives of the Real RK visited Chinese stone processing plants and manufactures. We personally talked with the leaders of the enterprises. We expressed gratitude for the warm welcome. Representatives of the exhibition were pleasantly surprised by the increased attention of foreign partners and organizations to the Real RK stand.
An indicator of the efficient participation of Real RK in the event, and an indicator of how fully the marketing objectives were achieved, is the proposal of the exhibition organizers to organize a “Karelian Street” granites on the site.
