II. A Journey Full of Rich Experiences
Everything’s Ready for The Big Day
We landed in Thailand on 23rd May with a strong spirit ready for the trade show. Our team spent almost a day setting up, decorating the booth and making sure everything’s at its best.
Greeting 100+ Traders Worldwide
Thaifex Anuga offered us golden opportunities to enchant our guest visitors, potential customers and win more business. We met and greeted more than 100 world traders who come from The United States, Spain, India, UAE, Australia, Singapore, Korea, etc.”It was indeed a pleasure meeting you at this event because we are looking for a new product launch solution. I hope this will lead to a long-term relationship with Tan Do beverage.” said a Spanish customer.
At this special event, visitors have a chance to directly taste our drinks. Out of 15 product lines, Fruit Juice Drink, Aloe Vera Drink and Coconut Drink are the most concerned by visitors.
This business trip brought a lot of meaningful experience to all of the members. Jessy Nguyen, a member of the sales team, shared her thoughts about this memorable event.
“I was almost exhausted because of talking and standing continuously for around 8 hours a day. However, seeing our booth attract a considerable number of retailers worldwide inspired me a lot. Also, what strengthens me is that I know it’s precious time for building relationships and bridging cultures across countries. Also, we’re proud to introduce Vietnamese culture to global friends through drinks made from Vietnamese natural fruits.” It seems that the greatest success is not about how many orders were placed after the trade show, it’s about our team’s solidarity and spirit. Once again, we’d like to give a big thanks to the visitors coming to our booth and the people accompanying us from the beginning of the event. Hope to see you all at Thaifex Anuga 2023!
