Agile working, video calls, meetings, and webinars have become 2020’s buzzwords. Cancellations and postponements of traditional trade shows and conferences, restrictions on business travel, fears, and legitimate precautions have led industry professionals to seek new ways to connect with employees and customers.
Because of Covid-19, certain already underway trends, such as the digitization of processes, working methods, and contact strategies, have accelerated. This world, more digital and online than ever before, opens us up to new challenges and new possibilities in spite of the limitations we all know.
While it was not possible to meet inside a physical hall, being present at an online trade show was crucial. Industry professionals have found in expometals.net THE place to meet, look for products and suppliers, read the industry news, and stay up-to-date on the current state of affairs in their field. It wasn't like actually seeing each other at a trade show, sitting at the same table, or exchanging a business card, but it was the closest they could get in 2020—and in some ways, it was even more efficient. Long story short, it all translated into an incredible increase in access to the platform: 347,000 visits from 215 different countries, an impressive milestone.
Let's see in detail the distribution of these numbers with a top 10 of the portal's aficionados*:
Out of 284,301 total visitors, 87,143 users are from Italy, accounting for 30.5%. The rest of the top 10 – USA, Germany, India, France, Spain, Mexico, China, UK, and Argentina – amount to 38.9% of the total. The remaining 86,996 visitors, or 30.6%, are from all over the world.
We are delighted with this result, which comes in a difficult year for everyone. We are not sharing it with you for pure ostentation, but because growing means, first of all, giving even more visibility and prestige to our online exhibitors. Moreover, we believe that, at a time like this, expometals.net provides a real and useful service to those who work in the business of wire, cable, springs, fasteners, flat and long products.
