Hobby Expo China 2017 is a 3 days event being held from 21st April to the 23rd April 2017 at the Beijing Exhibition Centre in Beijing, China. It brings together decision-makers from the manufacturing and service sectors who use the international trade fair as a business and communications platform. Sinopine technology got its compliments with FPV products such as FPV goggles, transmission system, antennas, and other products by customers at home and abroad.
This event showcases products: RC Hobby Model Area, RC Vehicle Model, Aerial Model & Parts,UAV&FPV (accessories & parts ), Aerial Scale Model,Train &Railway Scale Model, Vehicle Scale etc. Our generous boss participated in the exhibition along with domestic sales, foreign sales, marketing staffs , R&D engineers, although not bringing too much products.
The top left customer came from US was a purchasing agent, the girl in a dressed gray jacket standing in front of him was his interpreter who was definitely pretty nice and elegant, maybe he worried about the communication problem. He was very interested in our several new products, he was also a professional RC players. He keep asking oversea sales manager for quotation, sound like a professional purchaser too. We changed the name cards ,he said will contact with us after a discussion with others once got home. Wish we have a long term cooperation relationship.
The above image show that the strong British customer loved the FPV goggle so much, even he already has lots of FPV items. He highly praised the price to performance ratio of Sinopine's products. He asked questions for a long time, involves all kinds of details, and finally he bought one FPV goggle.
As you can see from the picture above, the Italian handsome guy has been studying the tiny FPV cameras and VTX items. They chated happily with each other, his female companion was also good at FPV products . Unfortunately, our engineer have forgotten to demonstrate our FPV glasses to him. Also hope we will have a good relationship.
What I miss now is the civilized Russia customer who with a briefcase, he bought a few cameras, and antennas, took a product brochure, left a single word: a little busy, then went away in a hurry....
To my surprise, we had a visitor who came from India, he was an old expert in the FPV field , He walked around the booth, watching the products while talking on his cell phone, and he consulted about informations of Sinopine, i do admired his preciseness and focus with respect.
What touched me on this event was that an American customer directly came over the A23 booth, the first thing he done was talking to my colleague: Where is KIMI? and i had seen a pity look on his eyes, after he heard that KIMI didn't come to Beijing due to some personal things. We gave him a big discount of our new FPV goggle with regret. Then he stayed for a few minutes and left... And 3 days later i learned that this customer is KIMI partner in Las Vegas CES 2017 exhibition in the United States. Maybe he just missed KIMI, and it remind me: Business is based on trust, then it followed by the goods, otherwise all marketing turn out to be useless AD shouting.
In addition, a client from Japan just repeated saying very good to us, maybe there are some language barrier for communication. A south Korean player, asked some camera parameters, also hands-on testing products without our engineer's help, reminding me the superior hiding in folks.
Several domestic purchasing agents and distributors also payed attention to our products. A Guangzhou customer who have cooperation intention even started consulting cooperation terms with my colleagues on the spot. Our regular cooperation clients also came to our booth to strengthen our links. Although our booth location was relatively remote, it did not affect our contact with the audiences at all.
There are not only players in the field of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or model, but also agents and purchasers gathering this event, their purpose is very clear---procurement or seeking cooperation opportunities with Chinese manufacturers. Sinopine as a manufacturer has many years experience, has been making an effort in the presentation of hobby model industry's latest design concepts, brand culture, and market trends.
