Exhibitor testimonials

  • "Intergastra is one of the most important events for us as it represents our target group extremely well. Right from the start we were able to achieve very good results, some of which were significantly above the level of the previous event. It is generally proven that our expectations of this trade fair are exceeded time and again. Stuttgart is an excellent place for the industry!"

    Martin Ubl, Authorised Representative, MKN Maschinenfabrik

  • "We were impressed by the trade fair. Intergastra is fantastic! The who's who of the industry met in the halls and there was high volumes of customer traffic. The visitors in Stuttgart are financially strong and extremely high quality. We are also extremely satisfied with the stand location, the connection and the organisation. We will be delighted to come back again in 2020."

    Michael Schärf, President, EKU Großküchentechnik

  • "We have been coming to Intergastra for many years and were once again satisfied with how the trade fair went. The market is currently experiencing a change of mentality: Sustainability, environmental compatibility and short transport routes are in demand. The public is even prepared to spend more money for this superior quality. It was therefore very important for us to present our products made in Italy, which were very well received here."

    Horst Mühlmeier, President, Pint-Inox GmbH

  • "For us Intergastra is very important as it covers our supply area. Representation here is a must. I think the number of professional visitors to this trade fair has increased again. We certainly had some very interesting customers at our stand. Also the stand location, organisation, etc., - everything was right. I am therefore assuming that we will be back again in 2020."

    Dirk Witt, Sales Manager for Germany, Kröswang GmbH

  • "We noticed that our topic - digitalisation - has finally reached the industry. We were able to benefit from this at Intergastra. At our stand we had our high market share in South Germany, roughly 50 percent existing customers, but also got to know many new customers. We are carrying great momentum from Intergastra into the new year!"

    David Heidelberg, President, DIRS21

  • "Intergastra is an important trade fair for us and we are always very happy to come to Stuttgart. The atmosphere in our beer garden was fantastic as always. We were delighted to welcome both regular and new customers, from whom we obtained lots of valuable feedback. Intergastra is perfect for this!"

    Eva Ploss, Head of Press and Public Relations, Brauerei Gebr. Maisel

  • "Intergastra is an important and strong trade fair. The quality of the contacts is decisive and I am confident that we can also expect successful follow-up business this time round. We have been a partner of Fokus Hotel for a long time. We are therefore keen to further advance such an important trade fair for the industry, which offers a good opportunity for exchanging opinions and ideas and transferring know-how within its own network."

    Ralf Biehl, Brand Communications, Häfele GmbH & Co. KG

  • "The enormous internationalisation of the trade fair is impressive. This year there was a clear increase in the number of countries, roasters and product manufacturers represented in the coffee hall - the figures increased considerably. The networking opportunities of the different areas of the industry are unique within the framework of the Coffee Summit. The symposium also contributed to the success and brought together international specialists." 

    Dr. Steffen Schwarz, Managing Director, Coffee Consulate

  • "Intergastra has developed very positively. The integration of coffee and coffee machines in one hall is very useful. This way the restaurant owner obtains a compact offer and there are also synergy effects for the exhibitors. In addition to the excellent connection, another advantage of Intergastra is that it is the first trade fair of its kind in the year - new topics are presented here for the first time!"

    Philipp Kocherscheid, Key Account Manager, Alois Dallmayr KG

  • "We had many interested visitors at the stand, established good contacts and were also able to make a good few sales. The trade fair audience was largely made up of professional visitors, which meant we reached our target group here at Intergastra. Overall, there was a positive investment sentiment. We were also very satisfied with the organisation and support from the trade fair team. For example, we had a minor power issue that was rectified immediately."

    Christian Schmitt, Sales Manager for Germany, Melitta Professional Coffee Solutions

  • "We are all happy. After a few years of 'abstinence' it was the right decision to come back to Intergastra again. Our winemakers are all very satisfied. The public was first-class and the importance of this trade fair was proven. We received outstanding feedback, served lots of samples and logged many concrete orders. We will be back again in two years with an even bigger stand!"

    Christina Lauber, President, Badischer Wein GmbH

  • "This was the first time we were represented with a stand at Intergastra - and certainly not the last! We are very impressed by the quality of the discussions, the commitment of the members and the identification with the trade fair. The acceptance of our information offer geared specifically to the hotel sector on the Dehoga stage really impressed us."

    Markus Luthe, CEO, German Hotel Association (IHA)

  • "FOODSpecial as a trade fair in the trade fair within the framework of Intergastra was a complete success. This year we recorded around 20,000 visitors at the FOODSpecial. As the first trade fair of the year the trends for the year are set in Stuttgart, to which Stuttgart as a trade fair venue also contributes. We also appreciate the friendly and excellent cooperation here, in addition to the connection and logistics."

    Johannes Fuchs, President, Trias Food

  • "At this year's Intergastra the visitors were able to benefit in a number of ways at the stand of the Federal Labour Office. The concept of making available individual presentation areas to companies at the exhibition stand of the Federal Labour Office also proved to be very successful. Jobseekers and individuals looking for apprenticeships and vocational training were able to have a personal discussion with the HR managers of the companies."
