TradeScope helps to manage a speed dating event in Sacramento each year with US producers and European buyers of dried fruit and nuts.
In conjunction with the Almond Conference, 30 dried fruit and nut buyers turned up for speed dating with 5 European and 4 Korean companies. Each meeting lasts for roughly 20 minutes, which is usually enough to exchange information and gauge interest. The event has proved remarkably successful in connecting buyers and sellers.
Speed dating is not for the faint-hearted! It requires telling your story 30 times in a day. For many of the buyers, it is also in a foreign language, which is no mean feat.
Blooming relationships is what TradeScope is all about.
