Dubai, 08th June 2020: MIE Groups is excited to unveil its FIRST B2B Virtual Exhibition platform, Global Trade Week Virtual Exhibition (GTW VE), which will allow adversely affected businesses across the African region to easily access the global market and reach out to a vast network of buyers and suppliers in order to move their businesses forward.

The current pandemic has thrown the global and exhibition industry into turmoil with trade show cancellations and postponements estimated to have had a 16.2 BN Dollar impact on the global economy to date. GTW VE is an innovation by MIE Group designed to reconnect businesses all over the world by creating a virtual business environment that will halt the downturn in the market by allowing business to continue, especially for Small and Medium Enterprises.

David Wang, Chairman’s MIE Group said: “We understand the necessity of developing a platform to benefit suppliers, producers and buyers. Our teams across China, UAE and Africa have done an exceptional job in just two months developing a new and innovative solution for businesses adversely affected by this crisis. We are proud to be leading from the front in providing solutions that will help our clients thrive at all times.”

GTW VE will allow trade buyers to connect with global manufacturers and suppliers and view the most recent innovative products in an exclusive virtual B2B environment with private deal rooms equipped with advanced video conferencing capabilities. Beyond business, the platform will also drive thought leadership through its dedicated virtual conferences, live keynote presentations, moderated panel discussions and exclusive webinars.

Zahoor Ahmed, VP Strategy and Partnerships commented: “Without a doubt, we are in the wake of a new normal that we all will have to not only adapt to, but thrive in as well. Thankfully, innovation is written in the MIE Group DNA. We are heavily invested in Event Management Technology and for us, COVID-19 was the impetus we needed to speed up the development of something we’ve always had in the innovation pipeline.”

In the coming weeks, MIE Groups will debut a number of high profile virtual events in partnership with the Government of China. These include China-Africa Digital Trade Week, Zhejiang Haiyan Export Trade Fair, Hunan-Middle East & African International Commodity Digital Expo, Africa Food Show and many more sector-specific virtual shows that will catalyse resumption of trade between the two continents.
