EXHIBITOR TESTIMONIALS for SLEEPWELL EXPO ’17
Malik Enes Huroglu, Sales Manager, HÜRPOL:
“Sleepwell Expo to become better year after year”
We participate in the fair with many products, including the two new concepts in visco pillows category, gelled and cooling foam pillows. The new model produces a cooling sense without having any gel layer. There were also more perfect embroidered, soft, medium and hard pillows made of more concentrated foam made to the demand of customers. We hope that Sleepwell Expo will become better year after year. We do our best to contribute its growth. Especially the visitors coming from abroad make us happier. We especially want to enter the central African markets. Visitors coming from Middle Eastern countries were more that other visitors. We even have met visitors from Kenya and Ghana.
