The COVID-19 pandemic has forced B2B buyers and sellers to go digital in a massive way. What started out as a crisis response has now become the next normal, with great opportunities and big implications for how buyers and sellers do business in the near future.

More buyers and sellers believe this new digital model is more effective and say they now prefer digital and remote human engagement over face-to-face interactions—and that sentiment has steadily intensified. Remote interactions have made it easier for buyers to get information, place orders, get support, and arrange service, and customers have enjoyed that speed and convenience. This shift is present across all countries and it’s time we bring it to the MENA region

Based on the above and the reach of our MENA German network, the Women in Business Network is launching its first Digital B2B Event.

The WiB Digital B2B Event is a one-day event on Friday June 11th 2021, that will allow service providers from the WiB network to have online B2B meetings with other members seeking to purchase such services.

This event will start with an intro session on Digital B2B followed by individually allocated breakout rooms for service providers who can meet with each potential client privately.

Registration Criteria:

-       Both service providers and potential clients should be members of any of our partner associations (SEVE – BWE21 – VdU – LLWB – CNFCE)

-       Service providers should have a profile on the WiB Portal

-       Service providers should have at least 3 years of experience

Providers of these following services are called to the first WiB B2B event:

  1. Branding
  2. Advertising
  3. Digital Marketing
  4. Graphic Design
  5. Social media
  6. 3D design
  7. Web development

Each of the businesswomen association will nominate 4 companies as service providers from the list above and will share with them the application form for registration. This first event is a pilot phase and the final number of service providers shall not exceed 20 companies.

Once all companies are registered, a catalogue of companies will be shared with all the associations members to book their sessions with the different services providers they wish to connect with. The matching process will also be conducted online via a google form.

The WiB will take place on the 11th of June 2021.

 

The Call of Participation will be opened soon. Stay tuned.
