TigerTrade B2B Platform Is Revolutionizing Global Off-Price Commerce
Ripe For Disruption, $280 Billion Discount Trade Industry Is Experiencing A Major Shake-Up

NEW YORK, NY – TigerTrade sees opportunities in global demand for bargain hunting getting bigger and faster thanks to its cutting-edge approach to international off-price retail. This technology-focused firm launched a first-of-its-kind, business-to-business (B2B) off-price platform designed to improve the speed and efficiency with which companies can sell their excess inventory to international buyers in new markets such as China, United Arab Emirates and Mexico. As simple as signing up, bidding and completing a transaction, vetted businesses and retail brands can move excess inventory across the world within a few clicks. While globalization has accelerated business-to-consumer methods of purchase, changes in the B2B off-price industry have not seen much innovation or automation – until now.

Tanjila Islam, CEO of TigerTrade, and an International Trade and Global Sourcing adjunct professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology said, “Our mission is to be the trusted end-to-end marketplace for buying and selling wholesale closeout merchandise. We achieve this because we understand the needs of our buyers, we know our suppliers.” Islam continues, “There is a ton of supply and plenty of demand, but it is currently hard for buyers to locate international sellers.” Where she saw a market need, she also saw inefficiencies.

Maximize Your Trade Show Time

Business On Monitors Shows Commercial Trades Or Deals

Reasons to Attend

No matter how small your retail business may be, the benefits of attending a trade show sponsored by vendors or industry associations far outweigh any reason not to attend. These conferences have been developed in order to give retail owners, buyers and managers the opportunity to meet existing suppliers, conduct business meetings, network with others in retail and investigate new products.

If you’re currently struggling to operate your business with few to no employees, chances are you may feel like you don’t have the time to attend a trade show. Consider hiring temporary help, asking family to assist or simply plan to close shop for a day in order to attend the trade show.

Once you’ve decided to attend the trade show, you’ll need to plan ahead. To get the most from attending a trade show, you should have a strategy. Knowing what you would like to accomplish before, during, and after the show will help maximize your time. Here are some trade show planning tips:

Pre-Show Planning

  • Avoid the confusion at the show by pre-registering.
  • Have a goal of what you want to accomplish, such as which vendors to visit, what items you need to purchase, what seminars to attend and which new product lines you’d like to see.
  • Know your inventory needs before the show. More efficient purchasing will save you money by grouping your orders to take advantage of discounts and special offers, as well as keeping you within budget.
  • Set appointments with any vendor you’d like to meet with during the show.
  • Plan to bring any employees who would greatly benefit from attending the trade show. Continue reading Maximize Your Trade Show Time

Let's keep things professional

Don’t lose your cool when it comes to the competition.

When suppliers compete buyers win. Quite simply, discounts increase and greater opportunity to find that special deal exists. In the past losing a client to the competition was taken grimly on the chin.

Today that same loss could potentially be the knock-out punch that puts your business down for the count. Some suppliers may feel the impulse to panic and may decide to take the low road by engaging in “mud slinging”.

Throwing mud at your competitor may get them dirty, but nobody likes a bully. In fact they may actually punish you for it. In many countries, the law recognizes the value of reputation and credibility. Both libel (a false and damaging publication) and slander (a false and damaging oral statement) are often punishable by law and could result in compensation or fines for damages done or even imprisonment.

Important and not so Important factors to consider about Trade Shows

 

What will my competitors say?

 

Just recently I read an article within a trade publication regarding the recent trend of trade show exhibitors and their plight as to whether to exhibit in a noticeably slower economy. The publication which will remain anonymous hinted at the ominous and undesirable outcome that may unravel should a supplier decide not to exhibit. The articles main focus was the conversation that would occur between your buyer or potential buyers and your competition.
