Global-Link MP Events International, Inc., the country’s leading tradeshow organizer, announced its partnership with Lazada, the number-one online shopping and selling destination in Southeast Asia. This comes after Global-Link MP unveiled its line-up for virtual trade shows for the year under its new business division, VX Events. Lazada will be supporting exhibitors of these virtual trade shows by providing them with an end-to-end e-commerce solution for purchases made at their virtual booths.
“Challenging as these times are, Global-Link MP is driven even more to find new ways of serving our exhibitors and show visitors,” said Patrick-Lawrence Tan, their chief executive officer. “We actually also partnered with Lazada last year where our exhibitors had the option of running simultaneous campaigns in their platform while our physical shows were on-going. It was an interesting merger of the face-to-face marketing experience at tradeshows and the convenience of digital solutions. Now everything will be done in the virtual space and we are excited to see how it will all work out.”
The events lined up are Pack Print Plas Philippines VX (October 8 to 14), Hotel Suppliers Show VX (October 15 to 21), Beauty & Wellness Manila VX (October 22 to 28), and PHILCONSTRUCT VX (November 5 to 11). Those interested to exhibit may contact Global-Link MP at email@example.com or via their Facebook page.
Jing Lagandaon, COO of Global-Link MP, added that now is a time when a lot of people are looking for ways to continue doing business. They are hopeful that by going virtual with their trade shows, they can cater to this need by providing an easy-to-use platform for companies to connect with buyers, helping them still get the core benefits of trade events without having to physically be in one. “We have to continue innovating,” she said. “The platform we are offering will allow exhibitors to interact with buyers in real-time, conduct meetings, and, with Lazada, they can even process orders online.”
