ADVEO World Benelux presents its new online ordering tool
The 10th edition of ADVEO World Benelux took place at the Hilton Hotel in Antwerp, with a record number of visitors. 70 ADVEO vendors met with more than 800 visitors to find out about the novelties included in the 2016 catalogue that was launched shortly after the fair. ADVEO Benelux presented a revolutionary e-commerce tool. This application allows visitors and vendors to achieve a more active interaction both in negotiation and in sales, registering orders in real time. This application stores all of the promotions of the exhibitors, adds specific data of clients and is connected to ADVEOnet, ADVEO’s portal for dealers, where orders are picked up. A very useful application for everyone.
