Adding live broadcasts and visits to assist exhibitors in promotion
This year’s Fair offers a “Guangdong-Macao Cuisine Channel Exhibition Area” where visitors can have a taste of Portuguese, Cantonese, Thai and Indonesian cuisines. Influencers have been invited to live-stream and live broadcast their visits to exhibition booths, during which they select for viewers those must-buy, must-eat, must-play and must-see branded products and wonderful programmes and promote for traders their products globally through the platform of the 2020GMBPF. The “Forum on Technological Innovation Co-operation and Coordinated Industrial Development in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area” was staged on the morning of the first day of the event to help enterprises seize the opportunity of integrating into the development of the Greater Bay Area. Also on the morning of the first day, representatives of catering enterprises in Guangdong Province and of catering enterprises/associations in Macao were offered the 2020GMBPF Guided Tour, to enrich their knowledge of exhibitors and their products, and increase the opportunities for co-operation between the two parties through interactions, negotiations and co-operation. In addition, a giant wall decorated with fruits and the “Guangdong-Macao Super Monopoly”, which covers an area of 72 square metres, are available this year for visitors to take photos with and “check in”.
