Marina Idris, Pahlen AB
After a short break the Swedish company Pahlen AB decided to resume its participation in the international exhibition Aqua-Therm in the sector World of Water & SPA. The expectations of the company were absolutely realized. We are satisfied with the highest service quality. Especially we would like to underline well-organized activity of the exhibition organizers.

The exhibition allowed us to meet with our customers and partners and discuss significant issues. Besides we had an opportunity to tell about the last directions of the company development and get acquainted with the current tendencies on the market this year. Aqua-Therm Moscow is a perfect platform to establish business contacts and meet with potential clients not only from Russia, but also from the CIS countries and outside the Commonwealth of Independent States.
