We will pay more attention to the 3M roadshow to learn how to upgrade our products.” “In addition, considering foreign business of our company, we will learn about the products of Dräger, MSA and other brands. We feel that domestic products are very cost-effective, and the gap with overseas is getting smaller and smaller. In general, the products are so diversified here and able to meet different needs of various companies. It is very rewarding.” the visitor added.

A visitor who participated in the forum said: “I work at a grassroots safety supervision department of the Sichuan Administration of Work Safety. Today is my first time to attend COS+H's exhibition and forum. The exhibition and the forum are very good. They let me feel that after more than 20 years of development in China's production safety management and supervision, information technology has been significantly upgraded and emergency rescue equipment has become more and more advanced. Labor protection products can satisfy the actual demands of enterprises. Due to the underdeveloped economy of our region, the exhibition and exhibits are very useful to us. We will contact the manufacturers, especially in information technology and emergency rescue."
The 10th COS+H will be held in 2020. The host and the co-organizers will work together to integrate high-quality resources at home and abroad, present more exciting content for exhibitors and visitors and lead the development of the industry.
