Meet Our Management Team
BAOlink emerged from our experiences as wholesale vendors and buyers. We saw the need for a more efficient way to access important information about future trade shows, exhibiting manufacturers and product lines. As vendors, we found it difficult to inform buyers of our newest product lines prior to the show. As buyers, we had trouble finding the information we needed to plan our trade show attendance and appointments. Between shows, it was difficult and time-consuming to find interesting new products and vendors. Today, BAOlink.com provides buyers with the ability to preview and gather vital trade show information, including direct contact information for exhibiting manufacturers and their latest product lines, well before the event – and BAOlink has developed an unsurpassed means for trade show organizers and manufacturers to distribute online press releases and target specific viewers through comprehensive Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies that facilitate visibility indexing by major search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN and Dogpile.
