It was after several months of preparations of our sales department, and after the Slovarm presentation stand for Aquatherm Praha 2020 trade fair had been approved and designed, when from behind the borders the first warning signals about Corona Virus reached us.
Contrary to some other big trade fairs, Aquatherm Praha wasn´t called off, so our sales department put on their work clothes and headed for Prague where, one day before the opening ceremony, they assembled the showroom panels, set the lighting and got the handouts ready.
On March 3, the first visitors came, welcomed by our colleagues dressed in company colours, who were already having their first scheduled meetings with our business partners.
The visual concept of our stand together with information given by our presenters was to communicate one important message – that our companies of Slovarm and Slovplast have merged and continue their operations under the holding company of Slovarm.
The showroom panels were designed with the same purpose – to show the width of our product range and, particularly, the new products in our offer after the merger. The focus of our visitors and business partners was on new lines of water taps and metal syphons, with extra attention given to our new wall-mounted system for water closets. Some admired its modern look, some enjoyed its easy assembly and control.
There were over 12 thousand registered visitors attending Aquatherm Praha 2020, counting plumbers, heating engineers, as well as students. With the pandemic at hand, the audience was slightly lower in numbers than two years before. The following year the trade fair is once again moving to Agrokomplex exhibition centre in Nitra, and with the pandemic, as we hope, safely over, the talks will be all back to business.
For preparation and successful implementation of our presenting activities at the trade fair our special thanks go to Viera Čuvalová Janigová, Ľuboslav Omasta, Dušan Duga, Marián Mockovčiak, Ingrid Matušinská, Roman Šíp, Milan Pekník and Radovan Tomiš.
