The ONLINE B2B MEETINGS FOCUS ON KOREA and TAIWAN is an online performance with the participation of producers of Fine Food products from Catalonia from focused sectors of selected markets and importers from the markets of Korea and Taiwan.

The global context due to the pandemic, in which travel is limited, opens up the opportunity to explore new avenues of negotiation, which is why PRODECA is organizing virtual meetings with importers from the Korean and Taiwanese markets.

 

B2B Organization of B2B meetings 

The participating Catalan companies will have an agenda of 3 individual meetings with importers / distributors of the target market interested in their products.

Meetings will be held at local times in Korea and Taiwan.

The hours of the meetings will be, approximately:

  • Korea: from 15 to 18 local time (from 7 to 10 Catalan time)
  • Taiwan: from 9 to 12 local time (from 3 to 6 Catalan time)

Prodeca will provide companies with a platform to hold meetings. However, the platform used may vary depending on the buyer's preferences. Prodeca will inform you in advance of the platform used by each buyer. Minutes before the meeting, a connection test will be carried out between the Catalan company and the consultant in order to verify its correct operation.

The meetings will last approximately 30 min.

If the participating company does not show up for the meeting with the buyer, Prodeca does not agree to a new meeting date. If the buyer has any problems, a proposal for a second date is guaranteed to guarantee the meeting.

Also, the language in which the meetings will take place will be mainly English. However, during the meetings a consultant will be physically present at the buyer’s office and will be able to support the buyer as appropriate.

It is recommended that participating companies provide Prodeca with promotional materials and a catalog of products translated into Traditional Chinese and / or Korean (depending on market interest), and English, in order to be able to present them. to buyers. In the event that a company needs to hire translation services for the production of materials, Prodeca will be able to help you by providing you with different contacts.

Each company will have:

 

  • Information on participating markets, trends and future prospects
