Each year we ask our delegates to provide detailed feedback on their HI Design experience. Here is a sample of Buyer testimonials from the last HI Design MEA event in 2017. You can also read the Buyer testimonials.
We gained very good contacts to decision takers who we did not know before.
VICE PRESIDENT, BACHMANN
We managed to speak with some key people we had wanted to see for some time. Most of our meetings produced a positive outcome.
SALES AND MARKETING DIRECTOR, BURGESS FURNITURE
HI Design is an excellent event! It is very well managed. The entire team does an awesome job. Your service is excellent and extremely professional. I appreciate the low-key nature of the event, made business friends, spread my company’s brand name and learned valuable business intelligence.
PRESIDENT, VAUGHAN BENZ
You guys do a stellar job and I love that you include active projects in the directory. HI Design is the best one-on-one event in the industry. Immediate access to a group of individuals I’d have a hard time meeting with over the course of several months.
DIRECTOR OF SALES AND MARKETING, GLOBAL ALLIES
Meeting the real decision makers one-to-one in an environment free from distraction. Very impressed with the organisation of HI Design that allows people to meet and swap experiences. Developed a good rapport with industry peers.
EXPORT SALES MANAGER, SAMUEL HEATH
Even if we did not have a formal meeting with a buyer, having engaged with them one-to-one on a personal level we know that an approach after the show will be accepted. A very efficient way to meet people interested in your product and capable of putting it into meaningful projects.
EXPORT SALES MANAGER, EDMUND BELL & CO LTD
I was able to have a number of informal conversations with a several attendees, which is where truly valuable connections can be made. It’s a great way to get to see a large number of useful contacts, which would take a considerable time to connect with and meet during regular office hours. A great added-value event.
GENERAL MANAGER, MENAT, CASPIAN + INDIA, VICTORIA + ALBERT BATHS
The service is absolutely excellent – the number of meetings is also very generous – network opportunities are very good and ‘organic’.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, ARTLINK
A very relaxed and at the same time business-focused event. Great meetings with people that would be very difficult to get a meeting with otherwise. Most buyers are very positive to continue a dialogue “back home” even if you didn’t have a proper meeting with them. Spreading the brand in a very efficient way.
AREA SALES MANAGER, BOLON
Very impressed with the organization and the support from the team. Building great connections with new clients and also suppliers, which will defiantly help in the future. The event definitely exceeded my expectations.
SPECIFICATION AND DESIGN MANAGER, ROCA
We attend because of the high level network that can be built from the event. HI Design is by far the best event of its kind compared to the others in the market. Always very structured and efficient.
HEAD OF EXPORT, DEDON
A great event with great people. It was good to see the decision makers of the big design firms who are generally very hard to meet.
KEY ACCOUNT MANAGER HOTELS, GEBERIT INTERNATIONAL SALES AG
HI Design is an excellent one-stop venue to meet most of the influencers in hospitality projects in the region.
REGIONAL MANAGER MENA, SKYFOLD
We gained interesting new leads and a better understanding of the potential of the market and buyers’ needs.
GENERAL MANAGER EMEA, RESOURCE DÉCOR
The event was interesting in terms attending speakers and presentations with a well-managed program and excellent selection of buyers and suppliers focused on hospitality projects.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, LEDS-C4
We made new contacts and more importantly met with the owners who never have the time to see us.
AREA MANAGER, ELITIS
We benefitted from new contacts, even better relationships with existing clients and exchange with the industry.
MANAGING DIRECTOR, 360 DECORO DMCC
The networking sessions and the supplier showcase were very useful.
DIRECTOR, SONITE INNOVATIVE SURFACES
HI Design allowed me to meet new companies that I didn´t have any previous relationship with and exchange information about the market with other suppliers.
AREA SALES MANAGER, GANDIA BLASCO
Personally it is a great way for me to meet the people I am emailing daily. Good to put faces to names and meet new designers.
INTERNATIONAL PROJECT COORDNIATOR, APAISIER
