Life is like a curate’s egg and so can trade shows. Short periods of quiet interspersed with manic periods of business. Certainly this characterises the second day. Overall slightly lower traffic passed the stands but significantly there appeared to be more new and potentially important customers. All the chemical companies were busy with new products being well received.
The sustainability theme was retained with most chemical companies having redirected their focus this way, although as we saw yesterday certain ones have built it strongly into their culture and are moving the industry forward in thinking as well as in processing.
The day maintained a positive view to the future with tanners being reminded that the more they take charge of their own destiny, listen to their customers and watch the market the better it will be.
