Exhibitor opinions 2024

  • "We took part in CMT for the first time. The mood was excellent while the visitors were well-informed and also specifically asked questions about certain topics."

    Andreas Rabe, Sales Representative, Husqvarna E-Bicycles

  • "We always have a home game in Stuttgart, so CMT is a really great trade fair for us. This year there was great demand for long-distance hiking paths – i.e. stages actually lasting several days where people can also become deeply immersed in the region. The great thing about CMT is that many visitors to the stand are well-known faces."

    Sascha Hotz, Head of Theme Management, Schwarzwald Tourismus GmbH
