The sudden slag in the Expo Industry happened for covid19, creates a big negative impact in the economy of Bangladesh
Imtiaz Ahmed, CEO, Redcarpet 365 Ltd.
We considered exhibition as Business Generator, a vital way to create more trade & connect more people. Network through exhibitions are more fruitful to get in touch with target customers in short period of time. The sudden slag in the Expo Industry happened for covid19, creates a big negative impact in the economy of Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a developing country. Any developing or already developed country needs proper branding. Strong marketing & promoting actually helps industry to develop. Exhibition is a very vital and live platform to promote any industry to the world. We are eagerly waiting to get rid of this pandemic situation and waiting for Bangladesh Governments next steps, when we can hold public gathering for exhibitions, events, seminars & conference etc.
Any planning or forecast for exhibition is difficult for this moment. Lot of things involved to measure the fruitfulness of future exhibitions of Bangladesh. In future we may see very different scenario of exhibitions. From Distance maintaining to health safety needed to be counted for future exhibitions. We are holding our seat tight and waiting for the right time. The negative growth in overall global economy creates a deep impact. We are also affected due to the same. According to the scenario Bangladesh will not be able to hold a fully functional exhibition at least till end of October 2020.
