Martin Bencher Group Newsletter - week 17


The Culmination of Months of Planning is Near

For many years Martin Bencher has been present at exhibitions around the world. 2019 is no different.

This year, we have already met many new and familiar faces at exhibitions in Tokyo, Taiwan and Shanghai. It is always very interesting to discuss face to face about the industry, solutions and future trends.
Within a month you can meet us again at the Breakbulk Europe conference in Bremen and AWEA Windpower 2019 in Houston, Texas. We hope to see many of you there.

The culmination of months of planning is near. Our dedicated teams are looking very much forward to inviting you in for a chat. Look for booth F21 in Bremen and 2328 in Houston.

Best regards,
Martin Bencher Group
