12:30 PM - 6 PM
The first Tradegood Buyer Summit for 2013 took place in Shanghai at the Renaissance Yangtze Hotel on March 20. Over 100 representatives of global buyers and suppliers were invited to attend the event, and international newspaper China Daily came to interview us. We also welcomed to the event Dr. Wolfhart Hauser, (CEO of Intertek Group), Ms. Janna Jätyri (Founder and CEO of Trendstop.com), Mr. Paul Yao (Tradegood CEO), William Quilindo (Tradegood COO) and Mr. David Ho (VP, Northeast Asia, of Tradegood).
Before the official start of the summit, a special session called the Photo Studio was set up in the foyer, where we invited professional photographers to take photos of products from our premium supplier members. Many of the attending guests gathered around to take a peek. This was definitely one of the highlights of the event.
At the beginning of the summit, Dr. Wolfhart Hauser made a fascinating keynote speech. He summarized Tradegood’s achievements for 2012 and demonstrated how Tradegood is creating business opportunities for buyers and suppliers despite the economic downturn.
The Business Matching session was then held in a separate room following an introduction to the purchasing requirements of the eight global buyers presented by Mr. Flecher Kong, Director of the Tradegood Supply Chain Analysis Center. Suppliers who joined the matching session brought a large quantity of product samples in order to introduce their products and factory capacities to the buyers. Over 100 supplier members participated in the matching session and all found it worth attending.
At the same time, another interesting session was also held in the ballroom, where Ms. Jaana Jätyri, founder and CEO of Trendstop.com, was giving an insightful speech on “How suppliers can translate trends into successful products”. She concluded the session by stating that “Fashion is not only a concept, but also a kind of power to help you make the foreign trade road longer and more stable. “
