The Selangor International Expo 2016 (SIE) was held on the 20th to the 22nd of October 2016 at the Mines International Exhibition & Convention Centre (MIECC). SIE was a platform for local and foreign companies, regardless of size to showcase their product & services to the trade community. It was all part of the Selangor state wishes to establish Selangor as the main business and trading hub in the region and a gateway to ASEAN.
Flexiroam was also present at the event, as one of the 600 exhibitors. It was a big event, with promises of variety of participants from different industries. And so it was, from startups to international traders, and it was interesting to see all the new products and services in the market out there.
Our Flexiroamers were there mainly to promote our flagship product Flexiroam X, and to showcase Flexiroam to the trade community that we are an aspiring data roaming solution provider. We even went a day earlier just to setup our booth!
The 3 day expo was such a fruitful event for us. We were able to converse and explain to the visitors about Flexiroam and our flagship product, Flexiroam X. We even got feedback about our product and how people perceive the technology of the sim microchip we used. We were also graced by the presence of the few VIPs, most notably Madam Elizabeth Wong, a state legislator for the state of Selangor. (Psst, our Flexiroam HQ is under her constituency)
Our booth was also swarmed by photographers as the Raja Muda of Selangor, which by translation ; the Crown Prince of Selangor popped into our booth. Our team of Flexiroamers were very honoured and privileged to be able to explain about Flexiroam X and how it works. We were even lucky enough to snap a few photos before he left. He is such a friendly and down to earth person, and you guys should definitely follow him on Instagram @rmselangor.
Throughout this event, Flexiroam found that it is indeed a great platform for us to connect with local and foreign businesses.The Selangor International Expo 2016 has given a great opportunity for Flexiroam to learn more about many amazing budding businesses, and inspired Flexiroam to collaborate with them in different angles. To Flexiroam, it is not just an expo where people purchase our product, but more about educating consumers and potential consumers to know more about Flexiroam. Hence,our Flexiroamers stationed their focus in promoting our business model, how X works and how convenient it will be for travelers to have data access when they are overseas using Flexiroam X.
In future, Flexiroam is looking forward for similar expo’s that will provide such exposure for the business and getting to know more of the businesses happening around us.
