“First of all, let me congratulate on KTM 2006 - it was a very good show and I think that it gave some very good and first-hand information on new products in Kerala. Of course, it's also very good to meet so many people form the trade. I would also like to point out the "opening ceremony" which was outstanding and of course the big party at Marari Beach Resort. I'm sure that these kind of  events help everybody to get to know each other better and to make new friends outside the business-like atmosphere of KTM”.

“ As a specialist, we visit Kerala regularly. But I still find it useful to attend the KTM… invariably I’ll find someone at a stand offering something that I was previously unaware of. That, plus the ability to see so many friends under one roof means this is one show I won’t miss”.
