“Very happy to have participated in SIPREMIUM. I also want to thank you very much for assisting me. I think this exhibition is a good start for the bilateral cooperation. I met a lot of very good partners at this exhibition. Really looking forward to the next year’s exhibition. Thanks again!”
– Mavis Lin (Business manager of Shang Cai Trading Co., Ltd, China)
“I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the very well organized “SIPREMIUM 2016” at COEX, Seoul. Your team took the time to explain, properly guide and support the participants during the event. This was helpful as it was my first time in Seoul. The Biz Matching program was also very useful. The vendors were all professional and the merchandise selection offered were unique, of good quality and interesting. The Biz Matching program also allowed the vendor and buyer to meet privately and uninterrupted, in the comfortable off-stage meeting areas. This made our meetings very productive. We are very happy to have participated in SIPREMIUM 2016. Well done!”
– Low Chee Wee (Assistant General Manager of John Little Ptd. Ltd., Singapore)
“We truly appreciated the kind invitation to have us visit the Seoul International Sourcing Fair (SIPREMIUM 2016). The facilities provided for the business matching were great and having an interpreter really helped. We felt really taken care of while we were there from the accommodation, escort, lunch and even the tour. Having our first visit so successful, we would definitely consider coming again for the next shows.”
