It is an effective program especially for exhibitors participating in pavilion. Gift Show Office stuffs bring a group of Japanese buyers considering stocking up products from a particular country/region to its pavilion. They inquire each buyer’s need and tell the information to the pavilion’s representative in advance so that it makes possible to introduce suitable buyers and exhibitors at their booth for fruitful negotiation.
