Here's What Our Exhibitors are Saying:

Exhibiting at Motion, Drive & Automation North America gave us the ability to meet with endusers, engineers and the press to demonstrate our gear couplings. Since this was our first time at the show, we utilized the exhibitor marketing kit provided by the organizer to invite potential clients to the booth and were pleased that Hannover Fairs USA answered all of our questions about exhibiting at the show in a timely fashion.
