Every year, Kharkiv in Ukraine hosts the most important business exhibition, this time under the name “Beekeeping Słobodszczyna 2019”. On the ninth and tenth of March this year, we could once again present our products in the hall of the “Lokomotiv” sports club.
The sports hall, the lobbies and the square in front of the building were filled with booths offering both apiary equipment and appliances, as well as beehives, honey, comb foundations, foodstuffs, or beekeeping clothing. The exhibition attracted great interest, especially on the first day, when visitors tightly packed the exhibition spaces for several hours. There is noticeable increased interest in the Ukrainian market for specialist equipment, lines, creaming machines and large honey extractors (not only the minima version). The visitors were drawn to the honey bottling line with labeler, exhibited for the first time.
Twelve employees of our distributors from Lviv, Lubne and Kharkiv were in attendance. The exhibition was an opportunity to hold talks and make plans and arrangements with four of our five partners in Ukraine: Oleg Nazarewicz (Lviv), Vitaly Burawicki (Kryvyi Rih), Sergiej Jaśko (Łubne) and Volodymyr Poliszczuk (Kharkiv). There was a seminar during the event on beekeeping and management models in an apiary. In this forum we had the opportunity to present our distributors’ previous-year results in Ukraine and showcase new products in our commercial offer.
