PREPARATIONS for the 10th Anniversary of the SMEs International Expo are already at an advanced staged, with the premium exhibition having already registered more than 25 foreign exhibitors for this year’s unique ‘virtual Expo’, which will run under the theme: “Sustainable Production for economic Growth in Africa, during and post-COVID- 19,” from the 28 – 30th October 2020.
Organisers of the event are optimistic of drawing even more corporates and SMEs across the globe, due to the fact that the virtual experience, which does not have any barricades will create a perfect platform for businesses that have for so long wanted to be a part of the Expo getting a chance to come on board, plus the annual exhibitors who have grown with the brand for the past decade.
Coupled with the coincidence that this is the first time that the Expo will be ‘go- virtual’ and the celebration of a milestone 10th Anniversary, the Expo is certainly set to break its previous attendance record for previous exhibitions.
In a global village that has been ravaged and forced to contract by the COVID- 19 pandemic, virtual is the only way to go, as the business still has to go on to sustain livelihoods.
Apart from drawing SMEs from different sectors of the global economy, the Expo is well known across the divide for bringing in conglomerates on board, thereby creating a platform where business deals can then be struck, especially for those looking to export products and businesses looking for joint ventures, among a host of other agreements.
Last month, organisers of the Expo, managed successfully to virtually host the SMEs International Expo theme launch, as a prelude to the upcoming 10th-anniversary celebrations.
The theme launch was hosted in collaboration with partners like TelOne and POSB just but to a few.
