The coordinator of Abicalçados' Trade Promotion Unit, Letícia Masselli, highlights the positive expectations about trade promotion, especially in the U.S. market, which accounted for 20% of all Brazilian footwear exports last year. "The platform also features over 200 thousand registered buyers from 144 countries, 40% of them from the United States," says the coordinator, adding that some of the main U.S. players require the supplier to be present in the platform to conduct negotiations. "It is seen as a matter of security and credibility," she stresses. 

As a main distinguishing feature, in addition to being able to use all the sales tools that the platform provides, the brands participating in the action are able to sell directly to the customer, in an entirely digital way.
