Once again, Kohler-Lombardini group’s decision to take part in a specialist trade fair was met with optimism and confidence. This year, the 29th Samoter, Italy’s main trade fair of Earthmoving Machinery for construction sites and the building industry, was held in Verona from 8th to 11th May exceeding even the most optimistic forecasts. The 50th anniversary show played its part by sending out positive signals to the world of construction, with over 40,000 visitors attending and 15% coming from abroad. A result that bodes well for a market that has been struggling to expand for the last six years or so. The impressive flow of people coming to see our stand included industry professionals and casual visitors, leaving us in no doubt as to the positive outcome of our participation at Samoter, in line with the overall trend at the fair. We also met with several national and foreign journalists, helping us boost our relationships with some of the leading industry publications and promote our current range of engines as well as creating interest in our future plans.
