We met important decision makers with upcoming projects. naseba team did a very good job in helping us have more meetings than expected.

Very focused event and I got to meet only the people I wanted to. My team will be following up with the leads and potentials we got here.

naseba has organised a unique format for us to meet our target clients and with the right contact person. We are certainly going to do business with most of the companies we met.

Excellent event! Well organized and well attended by high quality buyers. All in all an excellent value, we will be back.

We never expected to do actual business at the event, but we did. I must admit it was an excellent initiative by naseba and we are certainly looking forward for future events.
