We are very happy with the outcome of FENESTRATION BAU China. We exhibited new products and were able to meet many potential customers. As a long-term exhibitor at Fenestration China, we can say that the event took a step forward this year. We can’t wait to see how it develops and will definitely be at FENESTRATION BAU China 2018.

FENESTRATION BAU China entirely met our expectations. FBC has developed very well as a result of the commitment of BAU. This was noticeable by the quality of the visitors to our booth. This year, we had many decision-makers and, especially, architects visit us and we were able to show our new products, which are customized for the Chinese market, directly to the people who matter.
Dirk Fell, Managing Director Asia Pacific, Hörmann Group
The outcome has surpassed our expectations. The visitors are very active and the exhibitors are very high-profile. MILUX window is the leading high-end window supplier in China. We also released a new product at the exhibition this year. In the future, we plan to introduce our high-end product to common households. In comparison to other exhibitions, FBC is bigger, more professional and features more supporting programs. We have already booked our place at 2018 FBC and we will always support FBC.

Through FBC 2017, I can sense the vitality of the Chinese market. We are satisfied with the results. Every year, FBC serves as the most important promotional event for YKKAP. This year we released our new aluminum-alloy LD65 series at FBC. We also invited famous Japanese architects to share their experience. The congress is a good chance for us to connect with the customers. We hope the trade fair will grow even bigger and more inclusive next time, so it can offer more opportunities to the industry.
Akihiro Masumoto, Director Executive Vice President,
YKK Investment Co., Ltd.
FBC is great and it is worthwhile to come. The customers are facing great challenges every year, so we are always thinking about how to offer more value to the industry and to our customers. We have always tried to serve our customers and the industry. FBC is a great event that can influence the entire Asian-Pacific market. In 2018, TECHNOFORM will continue to support FBC.
Donald Lee, President, Technoform Bautec
FBC is an ideal platform that helps us communicate with the customers. This year there are a lot of people and the visitors are very professional, most of which are our colleagues in the construction industry. We will definitely come again next year in the hope that we can further promote our brand to more visitors.
Steven Zhang, General Manager, Sapa Building Systems (Beijing) Co., Ltd.
FBC is a very professional trade show that focuses on new technologies and new inventions.NELSKAMP has been known for its leading technology and we are offering the Chinese market our latest products. This is our first exhibition here and I am fully satisfied with the results. Comparing it to its counterparts, the FBC is better staffed and offers more convenient services. The most important thing is that the exhibitors are of very high quality. The trade show offers a platform for win-win collaboration with the exhibitors, which greatly promotes the construction industry in China.
Katherine Tian, Co-Manager China, Nelskamp GmbH
This year, the customer flow is much bigger than last year and we have a strong feeling that they are also more professional and high-level. Apart from some long-term partners and customers, we had a lot of pleasant encounters with new potential customers this year. The smart door & window products we exhibited this year is our most attractive highlight. The FBC platform is great. Our customers can get to know us better here.
Guoying Zhang, Vice General Manager, Orient Sundar Windows Ltd.
FBC is a leading trade show for the window and door industry. At FBC, the visitors can find all the solutions to their needs. So it is a very convenient one-stop platform, especially after its collaboration with BAU, one of the most important exhibitions for architecture, materials and systems in the world. I look forward to our next meeting at FBC Beijing in 2018.
William Wu, Deputy Technical Director, Schüco International (Beijing) Co. Ltd.
Briefly speaking, FBC 2017 is very high-end, big and high-profile. Both the exhibitors and visitors are of very high quality. Orville has brought a lot of new products targeted at the medium-to-high-end market. We always try to develop green, energy-saving technology and provide unique added value to our customers. FBC is very credible and professional. The conferences held every year are very helpful and important for the industry. It is safe to say that it is the best event for the industry. It offers a very good communication platform. We expect it to be even better next year.
Angel Yang, Technical Director, Shanghai Orville Architecture
We have been participating at Fenestration China for ten years. We can tell that it has been growing in both quality and size. Some of the visitors became exhibitors. It is very smart for the FBC to alternate between Beijing and Shanghai, as the weather and geographical culture is different in the two cities. We have already booked our booth in 2018 as we are very confident in FBC!
