1/ Viet Nam economy Overview
Viet Nam is the 47th largest economy in the world according to GDP and 35th largest economy according to purchasing power parity (PPP). This beautiful country is also a member of APEC, ASEAN, WTO, etc.
The mentioned above reasons with the attractive policy for foreign investment make Viet Nam one of the top choice market for doing business recently. In order to facilitate the trading between Viet Nam and Foreign business, hundred of exhibitions have been held every year to help connect Viet Nam and international market better.
Most of the international exhibitions would be held in Ho Chi Minh and Ha Noi, the two biggest cities in Viet Nam. It seems that Ho Chi Minh would hold more exhibition than Ha Noi due to its economic strength.

5/ Transportation – How to choose the best transportation
Airport – Hotel – SECC – So far Grab would be the best choice if you only have 3-5 destinations in Ho Chi Minh city each day. But in case you would go further outside of Ho Chi Minh city area or you have more than 6 destinations, rent a car would be a better choice. It’s ½ cheaper than Grab.
For roaming around the city in the evening, Grab bike would be cheaper and because the evening temperature is ok, the traffic after 7 p.m is not so heavy.
There are plenty of choices if you stay close to the center. They have street foods and famous restaurant with a wide range of cuisine styles (Asia, Europe, Latin, Halal, etc).
You should definitely try Pho, one of the most famous foods of Viet Nam. It’s better to have Pho in the evening or morning hence this is a hot soup style food, which is not so suitable for the lunch (except the Pho restaurant that has AC, which is not for most of the Pho restaurant).
You can access foody for more information.
7/ Things to do
After the stressful hours of work, what should you do? Check out these destinations to find out more about Viet Nam in general and Vietnamese people in particular. The trip advisor is a good resource to find out information about popular destinations. But Cu Chi tunnel is a must that we suggest you should go there for once in your life.
The nightlife of Ho Chi Minh city is also busy, most of the bars in the center are full of the customer. You can come to Bui Vien walking street. This is a favorite place for most of the foreigner tourist with lots of bars, beer clubs, pubs, street foods and funny activities that you should explore by yourself.
8/ The idea clothes for joining the exhibition in Ho Chi Minh city.
It’s HOT, that’s all we want to say, so except for formal event, t-shirt, short or any casual clothes that make you feel comfortable are recommended. Remember to bring a pair of good sport shoes hence it’s worth roaming around the city to feel the life of Vietnamese people.
9/ How to maximize your time and budget for the exhibition.
The exhibition is a valuable chance to meet up with your potential customers as well as suppliers. But of course, you do not spend lots of money and time traveling to HCM city just to meet some of them at the exhibition.
Because not all of your potential customer would be there. You, of course, would want to go around for market research (that’s the most popular opinion of most of the foreigner exhibition visitors, exhibitors).
We’re providing the market research service, which can help you determine the potential customer/supplier in Viet Nam and meet them directly. After or before the exhibition, you can come to meet them and establish a new business relationship for the future.
9.1/ How will the process look like?
1 – You provide the information regarding your targeted customer/supplier
2 – We help you to find and contact the customer/supplier as required and set appointments with them.
3 – Our interpreter will follow you to the meeting in order to support you in communication as well as a smooth negotiation process.
4 – You will pay the research fee after everything is finished.
9.2/ How much do we charge for the service
It will base on fix fee per day (including transportation and interpreter fee) + research fee (research fee will depend on the size, number of the customer/supplier you met – which would be agreed by our company and you before the research).
For example: We found 4 customers and set appointments for all of them in 2 days. We also agreed that about the potential customer's demand as follow:
If they want to buy 5 tons/month (rice, rubber, etc) you would pay me 10$/customer
If they want to buy 20 tons/month (rice, rubber, etc) you would pay me 20$/customer
If they want to buy 30 tons/month (rice, rubber, etc) you would pay me 40$/customer
If they want to buy 50 tons/month (rice, rubber, etc) you would pay me 60$/customer
So I found 2 customers with the demand of 5 tons and 2 customers with the demand of 30 tons.
The total would be: 80 (flat fee per day) + 10*2 + 30*2 = 160$
It's just that simple!
9.3/ How and when will you pay?
You would pay in advance for the flat fee via Paypal, Wire transfer or cash, just pick the most convenient one for you. The research fee will be paid after everything is finished.
Because research would take time especially it's harder to contact the customer on weekends, so try to call us to set up everything as soon as possible for the best result.
