SBA Hosts Virtual Shopping Day

In a continued effort to promote the 2020 Christmas catalogue and help to create awareness and boost sales for the businesses showcased in the publication, the Small Business Association of Barbados hosted its first Virtual Shopping Day and Networking Expo using Zoom breakout rooms.

The Christmas catalogue which is now available on all of the SBA’s social media platforms, features flyers from over 100 small businesses and special offers from strategic partners in eight shopping categories including Beauty & Skincare, Building & Construction, Business Services, Fashion, Food & Beverages, General Services, Health & Wellness and Home & Garden.

Nineteen of the firms present in the catalogue were given the opportunity to make a presentation on their product offerings to members of the consuming public based on attendees’ pre-determined categories of interest.

Members’ creativity was seen in their PowerPoint presentations with some showing videos and images of their goods and services. The presentations were well received from attendees and the event was a general success with businesses receiving orders as a result of the call.
