Online Marketplace ‘ExpoTor’ Reimagines Trade Show Connectivity
Outstanding quality is made internationally transparent as a revolutionary ‘freemium’ marketplace for event and exhibition services goes live. Designed to offer parties a platform to engage, assign and review insider information, ExpoTor represents a new era of organisational functionality for the tradeshow and MICE sector.
The platform offers a myriad of benefits for three key participant categories - exhibitors/trade show visitors, individual service providers/freelancers and corporate service providers. By connecting all three groups in one digital space, ExpoTor gives participants a faster, smarter and more reliable events experience. Suppliers are able to actively attract new clients while exhibitors and event organisers can optimise investment.
Alex Potor, one of the founders of ExpoTor, says, “Rather than solve problems we create opportunities in the event industry and offer win-win-win situations for exhibitors, event suppliers and visitors across the globe.”
Today, gamification has emerged as one of the biggest buzz words in contemporary business. Applying the concept to exhibition strategies is a wildly effective way for businesses to engage attendees, encourage contribution and make an impact. By offering trade show and MICE organisers the chance to tap into both freelance and corporate talent, ExpoTor is ensuring all event organisers can reap the benefits of gamification in an exhibition context.
ExpoTor was borne from years of first-hand experience attending and organising international trade shows. The platform is based on a simple ‘freemium’ marketplace model that connects buyers with suppliers. Exhibitors and visitors can use the platform to post projects, receive bids and search for freelance or corporate service providers. Individual service providers can leverage the marketplace to bid directly for projects posted by exhibitors or corporate suppliers across the globe. As well as exploring the marketplace members can also leave personal reviews and feedback which ensures the experience is 100% neutral and independent.
Alex Potor adds, “The economy is still emerging from the midst of the financial crisis and trade shows are set to play an invaluable role in getting sectors back on their feet. We’re passionate about helping exhibitors, visitors and service providers enjoy the best possible experience by providing an interactive online community designed to create sustainable results.”
For independent and freelance providers ExpoTor is a fantastic place to advertise services and drum up new business. The platform currently lists a multitude of suppliers including assembly/dismantling staff, cameramen, catering and service staff, city guides, moderators, personal assistants, photographers, designers, promoters, entertainers, hostesses, sales agents, technical staff, interpreters, logistics coordinators, models and more. Rather than stick with well-known names the option of commissioning up and coming freelancers gives exhibitors a chance to tap into fresh new talent that can seriously amplify their exhibition strategy.
Corporate service providers and companies can also use the platform to showcase services, with specialist agencies, security companies, multimedia businesses, booth builders, florists, decorators, event cleaners, furniture rental groups, courier services and more all featuring on the ExpoTor site.
ExpoTor is free of commission and fees which liberates use of the platform to all participants, no matter how large or small their budgets. There is zero obligation for bid acceptance on posted projects and no hidden costs which keeps business utterly transparent and non-binding. Users wanting to enjoy the superlative ExpoTor experience can upgrade to the Premium Pack for a fee, or gain FREE membership by inviting three new users.
From furniture/interior design and IT/technology to food/drinks and plants/gardening, the benefits of ExpoTor are applicable to every industry.
