After 4 days of activity at Saigon Exhibition & Convention Centre (SECC), MTA Vietnam 2014 has harvested good results and received good feedback from visitors and enterprises.

MTA Vietnam 2014 has attracted 11,159 trade attendees including trade visitors, exhibiting staff and seminar speakers. Among them were 295 group delegations from Ba Ria – Vung Tau, Bac Lieu, Binh Duong, Dong Nai, Da Nang, Dong Thap, Ho Chi Minh City, Long An and Soc Trang.

Mr Tee Boon Teong, Deputy Chief Representative, Singapore Exhibition Services’ Representative Office in Ho Chi Minh City, organiser of MTA Vietnam 2014, noted that MTA Vietnam 2014 saw increasing support from all relevant manufacturing industries as group visitors from factories have almost doubled – from 163 groups last year to a high of 295 groups. This corresponds with the industry’s investment needs as official statistics from Ho Chi Minh City Department of Planning and Investment has showed a significant increase in foreign direct investment into Southern Vietnam over the last year.

Most exhibitors received keen interest for new technologies showcased at MTA Vietnam 2014.

Dr Hans-Peter Laubscher, Managing Director Asia Pacific, TRUMPF said that he is very pleased that the industry recognises TRUMPF’s strong technology. The quality of the enquiries TRIUMPF have received has been excellent. At MTA 2014 TRIUMPF showcased its TruLaser 1030 Fibre for the first time to the Vietnamese manufacturing sector.

Mr Ricky Hwa, General Director Yamazaki Mazak Vietnam noted that MTA Vietnam addresses the changing and demanding production needs of the manufacturing sector in Vietnam. Mazak showcased its new OPTIPLEX 3015 Fibre II – a fibre laser machine that performs superior high-speed cutting and increases productivity by more than 30 percent. Mr Ricky is happy with the excellent contacts from the construction and furniture-making sectors that Mazak has received for this machine at the show.

With echoing sentiments, Mr Daniel Nauer, Senior Vice President, Market Division, Asia and Australia, Bystronic, a veteran exhibitor said, “We have been exhibiting in MTA Vietnam for many years now, as this show has become an important technology platform for the industry. We chose MTA Vietnam 2014 to launch our very new BySun Fiber 3015 laser cutting machine, and have received good enquiries as the Vietnam manufacturing community recognizes our strong branding and high level of technology”.

Mr Nguyen Nhu Trung, Chief of Technical Department, Juki Vietnam said, “Juki Vietnam is a repeat visitor to MTA Vietnam. We see that the exhibition is diversified and has many machines suitable for our business. We usually purchase machines and equipment from Japan and came to source for CNC machines from USA. We will come back to the next show.”

With such excellent results of MTA Vietnam 2014, Mr Tee hopes that MTA Vietnam will continue to play a supporting role in bringing technology buyers and suppliers together in a vibrant marketplace for Vietnam and beyond. “We plan to include more training programs in conjunction with the exhibition at the next event to further cater for re-tooling, and the re-thinking (innovation) needs of the local industry”, added Mr Tee.
