While the COVID-19 outbreak continues to hamper global business activities, online sourcing has become the ultimate solution that makes trade transactions possible. Riding on the success of the debut Summer Sourcing Week’s Go ONLINE in July – where more than 4,500 virtual meetings were held, the event was joined by over 1,300 exhibitors from 14 countries and regions, and 13,000 international buyers from 118 countries and regions, accumulated over 31,000 webinars’ views during the whole exhibition period – the HKTDC is organising its next online exhibition in November, Autumn Sourcing Week ONLINE (ASWO).
Benjamin Chau, HKTDC Deputy Executive Director, said, “The uncertainties brought by the COVID-19 pandemic have led more small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to focus on online promotions and operations, which has quickly become the ‘new normal’ for conducting business. Given that the pandemic has prevented buyers and exhibitors from meeting in person, the HKTDC has introduced online business matching to enable networking and deal-making.”
Under the theme of “A New Connected World Beyond the New Normal”, ASWO once again offers a one-stop online sourcing platform for buyers and suppliers to continue exploring more business opportunities across various industries including electronics, lighting, outdoor tech light, eco tech, watch and clock, optical, toys, baby products, stationery, houseware as well as gifts and premium, during these trying times.
by the HKTDC’s global network of 50 offices and a powerful database, ASWO’s
exhibition team provides excellent customer service, pre-arranges business
matching meetings with on-target partners and unveils the latest industry
trends and developments for participants. What’s more, ASWO continues to
utilise “Click2Match”, an AI-enabled business matching platform, to provide
buyers and suppliers with online self-service tools such as meeting planner,
live chat, video meeting, and e-business card exchange.
