According to a survey conducted by an independent market research firm among visitors to Claytech 2010, 74% of brick manufacturers had a positive impression of the section overall, expressing satisfaction with the number of international exhibitors. 92% of trade visitors who visited the Claytech section in 2010 said they would recommend it to others in the sector. At the beginning of the year 2012, over half of the spaces occupied in 2010 have already been rebooked.
