Sirius announces new Digital Trade Show 2020
Sirius Buying Group has announced “a revolutionary and new Digital Trade Show” for Wednesday 7th October 2020. The new digital event replaces Sirius’ annual trade show for 2020, which usually takes place in September.
The move follows Sirius’ staging of a Virtual Conference in June/July this year to replace its International Conference in Gibraltar, which was scheduled for May this year and has now been postponed to May 2021
Sirius Buying Group’s general manager Mark Veysey (pictured) said: “We have transformed our landmark annual tradeshow – normally scheduled for September – into a super-effective, user-friendly digital format. Providing a completely Covid-secure experience for our Approved Members and Suppliers, this new digital event will take place in October and create an interim solution for our dedicated network. With the help of the latest product ranges and industry expertise, members will have access to a library of video content specific to each supplier’s stand. These will include welcome videos, Sirius member offer videos and product videos through to exclusive promotional offers and one-on-one supplier meetings via a choice of preferred online conference call solutions. Ensuring a secure chat facility, we are confident that our Digital Trade Show will provide our members with all the benefits of a real-life exhibition, without ever leaving home. Having a digital trade show makes sense for everyone this year given the situation.”
Commercial director Steve Jones added: “By harnessing the latest online technology, Approved Members can log in to our digital trade show and stay connected all day, with the ability to make appointments with Approved Suppliers’ representatives for meetings via their preferred video calling platform to secure the best possible deals. We understand that time is precious for everyone, so Members can dip in and out of the online event as they wish during the day, whilst attending to other business tasks.”
