“I would like to thanks MarketPlace and El Papel team for the kind welcome upon my attendance at Marketplace Americas 2015.
Our participation at this year’s edition was very positive, being the 2nd consecutive year as main sponsor, we had the chance to repeat the successful participation of the previous edition, that allowed us to achieve some good business relationships in several different South American markets.
All the meetings held during the event were very promising for future business development in the region, we have already some good business proposals from some of the companies that we met, so globally speaking we can say that this model of pre-scheduled meetings with the buyers is in fact very effective and allows that us as exhibitors/vendors can reach all and each one of the invited buyers.
In my opinion the event was very well organized, and the fact that all the “social” moments and meals are shared between vendors and buyers, gives much more strength to the business relationship and helps create bonds that go beyond the business formal relationship.
So we expect to have a very positive feedback from this year edition, continuing the growth trend in the South American market driven by our presence at Marketplace Americas, and for sure that we will be present in next year’s edition”.

Manuel Mexia International Business Development Manager @ Bi-silque / Portugal

“Attending the MarketPlace Americas – tenth edition was very productive for Staples Latam. This format let us meet a lot of different suppliers in a short time period, and also to develop relationships among potential buyers and vendors from all around the world. I had the opportunity to participate in two other last editions and the importance of such event is growing every year. The subsequent follow up of vendors is very good, making this way concrete opportunities to do business”.

Gonzalo Santander Director Merchandising @ Staples Latam / Brazil - Argentina

“MarketPlace was a high-performance experience to me; I got very good contacts, now I have a very interesting data base of suppliers for the business. The event was well organized and highly professional. Thank you very much for inviting me and I hope to attend next year!”

Geraldine Valle Regional Buyer @ Almacenes Siman / El Salvador

“MarketPlace is an excellent opportunity for those who participate in the stationery business, either as buyers or sellers, since we have the chance to meet and share together during two days of well-planned work with people that share common interests. Buyers have the opportunity to approach manufacturers to assess new prospects, and vendors the opportunity to contact new potential customers with the possibility to expand their market. It is also a great opportunity to greet and share experiences with those who we already have a business relationship many years ago”.

Carlos Matute General Manager @ Jocar / Mexico

“I feel that Marketplace Americas has opened up a whole world of possibilities, I got back to Colombia with enthusiasm and interest to start new businesses, Thanks to the organizers for the opportunity they gave us to meet directly these large companies who bravely work daily to offer products with technological advances, new materials and designs. Now it’s our job to study and maximize resources to introduce the products that attracted our attention in the market. We really appreciate the organizers’ performance”.

Natalia Mojica Manager @ Gioto / Colombia

“Thanks to the MarketPlace Americas we have met different business alternatives to expand or to have different options considering the product lines we currently handle, as well as identify novelties regarding school, office, art supplies and some others. Plus, we also had the possibility to share both professional and personal experiences with the other attendees not only at business meetings but also at entertainment events held throughout the event”.

Nestor Breuillet Operation Manager @ Librería y Dist. Jardín S. A. / Nicaragua

“I would like to thank MarketPlace team for inviting and receiving me at the Marketplace 10th anniversary Gala. I enjoyed the evening very much and Fellowes is honored to be recognized by your organization for the support of international trade development.
With Marketplace you have built an important event to fill the OP market with new names, brands and inspiration that you can be very proud of.
Fellowes will further cooperate with Magazine El Papel and we are looking forward to continue our pleasant and constructive relationship.
For the time being we wish you and the entire El Papel / Marketplace team a great holiday season with some relaxing time for you and your families. All the best”.

 

Bernd Mazzurana General Manager @ Fellowes / Germany

“I am very pleased to have a group of people promoting negotiations vertically between Latin American countries, including suppliers from other regions. The dynamic between “Buyer” – “Supplier” is a dynamic that allows us in 30 minutes to raise our business skills, in order to shake our hands at the end of it.
As a leader company in the categories of office and school products, is an honor to participate as suppliers in this event. The warm hospitality of the people and the sense of urgency to resolve any situation that arises, makes one feel at home.
Thanks to Ricardo and his great team and congratulations for these 10 years of experience”.

Carlos E. Murguia Director Export Sales @ ACCO Brands / USA

“It has been a pleasure to participate MarketPlace with you and your team on implementation of our Business promotion. Your experience and customer information was very helpful. Your systematic process makes it easy to promote our business and allow us to concentrate on customer meeting. We appreciate that you listened to our concerns and desire of what we want to do during Marketplace.
We highly recommend your service to business owners.
Thanks to your concern, we had valuable time in MarketPlace and also had great time in Miami. On behalf of our company I would like to thank you for your support.
We look forward to participate in the MarketPlace again and trust that this close relationship will continue into the future.
Very truly yours”.

 

Yk Jung Export manager @ Dong-A Pencil Co. / South Korea

“There are many reasons that have led KORES to participate in the MarketPlace Miami in recent years, but in my personal opinion the main reason for our presence in this annual event is to have the great opportunity to meet in one place with multiple buyers from many companies throughout America and have the assurance that each of them have an appointment scheduled at our booth instead of investing effort, time and resources to visit each of them in their respective countries.
The Marketplace is the perfect space to build relationships and do business under a professional work environment and every minute a new opportunity arises to exchange ideas with a potential new client that we were looking for.
KORES hopes to continue with this valuable business tool for years to come, thank you very much to the Marketplace and all his valuable team for helping us position ourselves as one of the most important brands in the Americas”.
