CeBIT Recap

Danke schön!
The CeBIT show in Hannover 6 – 10 March was a success for TWIG. Thank you for all of you giving us a visit during the week.


TWIG in action during CeBIT 2012

According to Deutsche Messe statistics there were 300,000 attendees to CeBIT 2012 from over 110 countries. More than 50,000 visitors were from outside Germany.

Over the five days there was a constant flow of visitors at the TWIG stand. Conspicuous was that most visitors were highly knowledgeable in the field of personal safety and GPS so business discussions were effective and to the point. The great number of prospective business partners from outside Germany and even Europe was also marked.

New contacts were made and some old ones renewed, as TWIG put on display its new products and focus on personal safety alerts and asset security.

Indoor safety by TWIG
The new TWIG indoor solution for lone workers was well received by customers and sales partners at CeBIT. For details on specs, availability and pricing please call your sales contact.
