The BUDMA International Construction and Architecture Fair is the largest construction industry fair in Central and Eastern Europe. This year’s edition was held under the slogan “Inspiration–Knowledge–Business”. Visitors could not only acquaint themselves with the latest solutions in the fields of construction and architecture, but also take part in many events and meetings. More than 1,000 exhibitors from several dozen countries presented their products and services during the 26th edition of the BUDMA fair. Our company could not miss such a big event. During the four days, our stand was visited by several hundred guests. They included architects, traders, specialists, and investors, i.e. representatives of the most important groups of professionals to whom our exhibition of door and gate locks and cylinder lock inserts was dedicated. This year, it was possible to observe a major increase in the number of foreign investors from Eastern Europe, looking for new solutions and products that are in increasing demand on their markets. The products and services offered by our company met with considerable interest, which translated into a large number of queries in the next days. This indicates that the market is increasingly oriented towards domestic producers — such as S.I. Metal.
