This year, due to the impact of the global epidemic, our company actively responded to the decision and deployment of "stabilizing orders and expanding markets" of provinces and cities, and cooperated with Ningbo Bureau of Commerce to launch "Ningbo Stationery & Gifts Export Global Online Exhibition", so as to solve the "offline" communication dilemma with the advantage of "online" communication.

We rely on cloud platform technology, through innovative communication mode to achieve mutually beneficial and win-win goals."

"It helps me a lot to get ready for the flood season and also to visit factories in Yiwu, Wuxi and Shanghai."In the early stage of the exhibition, Zhongbo International Exhibition has made accurate matching between the exhibitors. On the site of the exhibition, the exhibitors did good job on materials preparation, online display, product introduction and other aspects. And the two sides talked happily. Summer, the Business Director of Cixi Yilin Stationery Manufacturing Co., LTD., has brought the form of "live-streaming with goods" to the online exhibition. Live mirrors, light fillers, online video interaction... The booth was just like a small studio. Over the course of the show, Ms. Summer said that the feedback has been good and interest in her company's products has been strong, and she has been rewarded in all five meetings.
Affected by the epidemic, many exhibitors came to the exhibition with the mentality of "have a try", but did not think that the "cloud exhibition" was very effective. "Our salesman had a good chat with the buyer from Malaysia and left contact information with each other. We will further communicate later." Cixi City View Haiwei Bain stationery factory director Luo Xudong expressed with surprise. Wang Jianjun, the General Manager of Import & Export of Ningbo Guangbo, said, "The idea of holding an online exhibition is good and solves a lot of practical difficulties. Of course, the organizers can strive for better details and I am quite satisfied with the early matching and on-site docking services." Jiang Dingguang, head of Ningbo Beilun Guanghui Culture and Sports Co., LTD., said after preliminary negotiations, he was worried before the exhibition. He said that the company had received orders from foreign trade companies, and the products were mainly exported to the United States. However, due to the impact of the epidemic, the company has no orders at present, so he can only bring about 30 types of ballpoint pens and neutral pens to try his luck directly with overseas buyers.
