Positive expectations of businessmen despite the pandemic


The research Business Climate Survey in AP Vojvodina from September shows positive expectations of businessmen in all surveyed segments: overall business, cooperation with foreign clients, sales prices, and the number of employees. In the 41st round of research 201 companies from different sectors of activity participated.

Taking into account the unfavorable epidemiological situation, the focus of this research is placed on connecting business partners, on the forms and importance of business connections of entrepreneurs. According to the respondents, events aimed at finding business partners are needed and provide good networking opportunities.

When it comes to the form of business connections, businessmen believe that B2B meetings and fairs are of the greatest importance. B2B meetings serve business people to discover new suppliers or customers, while fairs are recognized as a place to get the latest information about new products, services, and trends.

Nearly half of the respondents believe that online events cannot replace traditional forms of business connections, but most of them are still interested in participating in such an organized event.
