âLast year we made 100 pieces of our organic rice soap, including a large batch of our shower gel, lotions, etc., and they all sold out. We have found that our organic, healthy and natural products (with a sense of Thainess) are very well received. As a marketing consultant, I see the Middle East as a remarkable market, âsaid Nutchomthorn Sabaibang, marketing consultant for iConnect International.
âWe are confident that we can be successful after attending the Thai Trade Exhibition Oman 2016, which was our first event in the Middle East, where we received great feedback from customers. It was way beyond our expectations. Customers from the Middle East were interested in our products as many of them have already been to Thailand. They are familiar with Thai herbs and products, âsaid Akkharaphat Tangtrongchitr, Managing Director of Jisprapat Limited Partnership, a company specializing in the production of health products such as inhalers, balms, massage oils and oil. yellow.
âWe are currently in discussions with local distributors there. I think Thai trade shows are great because customers in the Middle East who are fond of Thai products will know that Thai brands are happy to knock on their doors, âadded Tangtrongchitr.
âIt was very impressive to exhibit our products at the Thai Oman Trade Show last year. We received good feedback from day one. We bought 80 kilograms of our products and they all sold out in the first three days. We have agreed to ship our products to Iran and to a large mall in Oman. Joining this event not only helped to increase our distribution channels, but also broadened our vision and experience, ânoted Supaporn Klinhom of SPC Group, a company specializing in the export of dried fruits.
