"As first time exhibitors to DESIGN East, we were engaged with prospects from the opening hour through to the final day.  The show itself was highly attended by designers and engineers from large OEMs to small start-up businesses.  The many keynote speakers and seminars, many of which took place within the exhibition show floor, helped to attract and to captivate large numbers of genuine prospects who then would disperse among the exhibitors to mingle and discuss projects and needs for both immediate and future requirements," said Robert C. Martini, Director of Business Development, Precision Assembly Technologies, Inc.
