Feedback from exhibitors and visitors to Neftegaz 2023
Dmitry Abalymov, Chair at ALTEK Association:
It is a pleasure to be present at the Neftegaz 2023 exhibition. Altai Krai has prepared a large group stand with more than ten manufacturing companies.
Any exhibition is, first of all, a platform to analyse where we are now. It is very good that our development institutes and the Ministry of Economic Development of Altai Krai organise such group stands, and the companies, which may not yet be at the right level, understand what to strive for. The main point of this exhibition is to understand where you are and choose a strategy for winning the market.
Mark Goryachev, CEO at NTA-PROM:
This is not the first time we have exhibited at the Neftegaz exhibition. We are constantly expanding our customer base through this exhibition. Every year we meet new customers and clients. We like the trade show, it has high ROI. We are happy to see our partners here, tell them about our new products, and present a new line of instruments that we start to offer to our customers this year.
This year, all places at the trade fair are occupied and competitors are not asleep, but we are ready for competition and appreciate the good opportunity to exchange opinions with our colleagues.
Andrey Maslakov, Marketing Director at Uralmash Oil and Gas Equipment Holding:
I represent an engineering company. We manufacture drilling rigs for onshore and offshore drilling. It is very interesting for our company to be here. At this exhibition, we meet our regular customers and find new ones. To exhibit at such events is to talk about our developments, our equipment, and ourselves and to help clients choose the proper equipment.
I would like to thank the organisers of the exhibition for the excellent business atmosphere. This is the most large-scale trade show for the last five years. There are a lot of new companies. We feel comfortable here. We will continue taking part in the exhibition.
Anton Makarevich, Deputy CEO for Development at REGLAB:
Our company is a regular exhibitor at the Neftegaz exhibition. We have been proposing our solutions for industry in Moscow for 15 years. The exhibition always takes place in an interesting way for us. It is a dedicated platform where specialists from the oil and gas industry traditionally gather. As a domestic developer, we always bring new products (including this year), present new hardware developments in the field of industrial enterprise PCS, software solutions, and import substituting solutions.
For us, the exhibition is always an effective platform. We are ready to present our solutions to replace vendors that no longer operate in Russia.
Ivan Mishakin, Deputy Director General for Sales at Electroshield Samara:
In our country, the Neftegaz exhibition, held at Krasnaya Presnya, is the main key trade fair where all representatives of the oil and gas industry come. Such an event should certainly be enjoyed. If your goal is to be successful in the oil and gas market and be a recognisable brand in the Russian oil and gas industry, then you should definitely attend this exhibition. See you at Neftegaz next year, 2024.
Mansur Yanberdin, Deputy Director General at Ufagidromash:
We come from the Republic of Bashkortostan. Neftegaz is a key exhibition for our company, as all our main customers come here and we can fruitfully discuss all our cooperation issues.
We have found new partners with whom we will also work well together. We have already signed many new agreements.
People came from different regions, including from near abroad. The Neftegaz exhibition helps in finding new solutions and in strengthening cooperation.
Alexandra Lavrik, Head of Marketing at Tobol:
Some people think that a trade show is too traditional a promotional tool and too expensive. However, we are convinced that there is no other promotional tool more effective than a trade fair.
At the Neftegaz exhibition, you can meet the biggest customers in Russia in this field and present yourself and your equipment in a worthy manner. The professional community monitors this market and its participants. It is believed that those who exhibit will shape the agenda in the professional environment over the next year.
We would like to note a high level of organisation, a huge number of exhibitors from different countries, and a large number of visitors, with most of the visitors being the target audience. All our investments in a single exhibition day pay off a hundredfold, which I also wish to all the exhibitors.
Albert Baishev, Head of Industrial Electronics at AvalonElektroTech:
We have been participating in the Neftegaz exhibition for decades, presenting localised products used in the oil and gas industry. The trade show is about maintaining business ties, showing what we can present in the market now. This is the most important industry for us. We will always participate in this exhibition.
Dmitry Ivanov, Head of Commercial Department at REMAN:
The exhibition is bigger than last year. Our stand is twice as big. We have 3 times as many visits from our customers, both existing and potential. The exhibition provides live communication. We discuss all the problems that have arisen since 2022 and solve them together. Our participation is a way of saying that we are on the market, we have not left it, and our partners see and understand that it is possible to do business with us.
Evgeny Nikonorov, Head of Department for Work with Design Organisations at Spetskabel:
Neftegas is a key exhibition for our company. We produce and develop many products for companies that operate in the Russian oil and gas industry. That is why we regularly come to the exhibition. This event is very important to us, and we participate in it each time.
