The 14th International Mining and Minerals Exhibition had once again been held on 14-17 October 2009. The event was held in Jakarta Fairground at Kemayoran, and could be considered as the biggest heavy equipment exhibition in Indonesia covering a total of 35,000m2 and more than 2000 companies participated in the event.
PT Daya Kobelco Construction Machinery Indonesia had been a regular participant for the past 2 events while this year its presence is represented by 2 outdoor booths; Kobelco Hydraulic Excavators Booth and New Holland Construction Equipment Booth and 1 indoor Booth for Kobelco Crane. 2 units were on display, SK480-8 Geospec Acera and the giant SK850LC had been the centre of attentions especially during the unit demonstration, which is held twice a day, whereby 200 hundreds of Kobelco printed beach balls were placed in the bucket of the SK850-8 and were released from a height of about 6 meters as a welcome gesture to the exhibition guests. Besides the unit-demo and a brief technical explanations, entertainment was also provided. This year Daya Kobelco had chosen “Indonesia” as the overall entertainment theme to appreciate the diverse culture in Indonesia by presenting a variety of cultural dances mixed with modern dances as well as a jam session of traditional musical instruments and as always, the entertainment sessions had been well received by the audiences.
Alternately, unit demo by New Holland Skid Steer Loader was also performed intermittently to show its agility and its easy operation. First time users especially ladies were invited to operate the Skid Steer Loader and due to its User-Friendly Operation the ladies can operate the machine in no time at all.
The 4-day Exhibition was packed with visitors who came from all over Indonesia totaling a number of close to 10,000. It has been a success for both the organizers of this event and the participants. PT Daya Kobelco also managed to close several deals during the exhibition especially the SK480-8 and the giant SK 850LC as well as New Holland Skid Steer Loader.
