As this was the first time to hold a offline and online business meeting, there were worry about the internet environment, howling and noise in the room, but it was able to hold this business meetings without any major problems. At the beginning of the event, there are some problems, such as the other party not logging in or accessing the wrong link, but the two-day event ended without incident. Some of the exhibitors expressed a desire to hold the event concurrently with other countries other than Vietnam and to hold it more than once a year.
As an option for this year’s Web-Business Meeting, we will have an FNA pavilion with 20 booths at METALEX, which will be held at BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand from 18 – 21 November.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to all the co-organizers and sponsors, as well as to all the exhibitors and visitors for bringing this event to a successful conclusion.
