    While many people think that traditional buying and trade shows are slowly dying, it is notable that even though digital commerce is slowly making its way to our homes, people still use two channels when purchasing: searching online and purchasing offline.

    “At the end of the day, there is no way we can replace true human interaction. Sparking conversations and seeing products up close are still the best ways to experience Filipino flair. By interchangeably harnessing both online and offline marketing activities, we can ensure that our exhibitors will be where the market is, real-time and all the time,” CITEM’s Executive Director, Pauline Suaco-Juan ended.
