There is a good turnout of exhibitors, and I have seen the show expanded in front of me, even before that I came to visit the show, but now I have been participating in the show since the last two years. I have developed some very good contacts with the local dealers and distributors here and it takes time to turn contacts into businesses but then Yes it is a good platform for doing business in Thailand. I think I will be coming back for the next show.
