Tradegood Private Business Matching Event for Metro Group·Qingdao
Thu, Jan 31, 2013
9 AM - 5 PM
Tradegood’s first private matching event for 2013 was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Qingdao, Shandong Province. In line with the purchasing requirements of MGB, Tradegood specialists arranged for eight quality suppliers to meet with MGB. All suppliers met with the sourcing requirements and both sides were satisfied with the outcomes. This was the second time that MGB had taken part in a private business matching session organized through the Tradegood platform.
During the event, the MGB Merchandiser Manager, Mr. Christoph Richard Zeiss, held face-to-face discussions with the suppliers. He examined the individual samples presented by the suppliers and made detailed notes of the purchasing details, including factory condition, production capacity, hot items already shipped, and so on.
The MGB private matching was a great success—but it was just the prelude to the Tradegood off-line matching events for 2013, when Tradegood will be providing more of these highly productive face-to-face matching events for buyers and suppliers.
