Case Study: Full online presentation of Agra, Vinaria and FoodTech exhibitions at International Fair Plovdiv

Each year, these three exhibitions are attended by over 40,000 visitors within a span of 4 days, including industry professionals, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts.

Marketing part

In 2019, the marketing of International Fair Plovdiv started focusing on its online presence with the aim of increasing the number of visitors and drawing attractive and innovative exhibitors.

To achieve this goal, we took on the task of presenting the exhibition in the best possible way to a wide range of target users.

  • We created two videos featuring our representative, who provided more information about the exhibitions and reasons for users to attend.
  • We maintained constant communication with the International Fair Plovdiv team to stay in sync.
  • As the exhibition approached, we started featuring over 40 exhibitors on social media.
