For Menno Vaartjes from DOGE Collection, REHACARE is the first place to go for presenting their Riser Recliner chairs. "Apart from the fact that our customers from the Netherlands don't have it that far, REHACARE is the best trade fair in Europe and always very well organised."
To Bruce Mascull (right in the picture), Business Development Manager of the New Zealand company medifab Ltd., REHACARE not only means the "location" Düsseldorf, but also "passion and energy". "Being in touch with our European customers and meeting new ones", is something the company really likes about the trade fair.
The company van Raam produces special bicycles and appreciates not only the proximity to the Dutch headquarter, but also "that we come into contact with other companies and manufacturers here. And of course we can present ourselves perfectly," says Huub Ressing.
At the booth of HealthSmart International, Jonathon McCarthy (right) and Bruce Mueller created a good atmosphere. The two "comedians" from Chicago present foldable walking sticks in different designs and patterns "made in the USA". The American company is the "third time at REHACARE to expand access to the European market."
"It's nice to be able to make a lot of interesting contacts here, especially with affected families," is how Stefanie Ruhfus describes her impressions of the fair. The graduate ergotherapist has already represented the team of the holistic and animal-supported therapy center for the third time at REHACARE.
Hiltraud Linnow, sales representative at leguano, describes the fair as "outstanding, excellent and professional". The company for barefoot shoes is not the first time represented at REHACARE. "This is where we meet the audience that needs our products," explains Linnow what she likes about their trade fair appearance.
The first exhibitors at REHACARE also includ Loor Ens. This is "Kölsch" for "look at it", as Heike Herrmann and Tordis Ludwig explain. Together, they want to draw attention to the topic of deafness and offer various forms of support for affected families.
"I've been attending the fair for 20 years, people know me here," says Martin Mauz, who is delighted with the audience at his booth. Under the motto "Staying on the ball with pleasure", the entrepreneur from Constance tries to encourage children and adults alike to be more active.
Orthopaedic aids, crutches and handsticks made in Germany are available at the booth of Ossenberg GmbH, Hall 4/ A40, but not only German regular customers are guests of the company from Rheine. "We like REHACARE because this is where our international clientele comes from. This gives us a common meeting place," explains Sales Manager Andreas Fritz.
"We appreciate the proximity to visually impaired and blind visitors who can try out our tactile guidance system directly here,"says Bastian Fens, Export Manager of Hoba Steel. The company from Holzwickede is a guest at the trade fair for the fourth time.
