Online Exclusive: Largest Thai products sourcing platform for F&B community
THAIFEX – Virtual Trade Show (VTS), organised by the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) via www.thaifex-vts.com from 29 September - 3 October 2021, has received an outstanding order value of 2,362 million baht. The target was surpassed by 830 million baht, and Thai food and beverage business operators affected by the COVID-19 have benefited from profitable trade opportunities. The 2nd edition of VTS in 2021 brought together 2,906 online registrants from 104 countries, of which 344 buyers were successfully matched with their target exhibitors. All proceeds from VTS are going toward hosting THAIFEX- Anuga Asia happening in May 2022!
"The online trade show platform via www.thaifex-vts.com is a major component for buyers who cannot attend the physical event in 2021. As an advanced and user-friendly platform, www.thaifex-vts.com could accommodate participants to conveniently visit the exhibition booths and enter online business matching as if they are in the physical venue. We believe that once THAIFEX - ANUGA ASIA 2022 takes place, the Thai food and beverage industry can regain its momentum, yielding the order value of several billion baht after facing the economic contraction for almost two years due to the COVID-19 global pandemic," says Mr Jurin Laksanawisit, Thai Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Commerce.
THAIFEX – Virtual Trade Show (VTS) was launched by the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) for Thai business operators to showcase their products to global buyers. Exhibitors enjoyed a 24-hour virtual exhibition tour via www.thaifex-vts.com with 360-degree product views, mimicking physical exhibition booths experience. Participants were able to join virtual online business matching with top Thai suppliers through scheduled video meetings during the event days, and the search and chat functions will be available for 365-days for all participants.
