When Ari Feferkorn launched Jewish construction and property trade show JTrade back in 2018, he was less interested in building materials as he was building bonds between communities.
“I saw all this untapped potential,” explains Ari. “Entrepreneurs doing amazing things in different sectors, yet unaware of each other. So I brought them together under one roof, and the rest is history.”
And what a history it’s been. In the few years since launch, JTrade has become revered as a hub of innovation, a launchpad where game-changing collaborations take flight, and a place where businesses can generate incredible volumes of new customers.
From strength to strength
That first event created an impact that was felt well beyond the confines of London’s Business Designs Centre, where hundreds of exhibitors, and thousands of guests attended. And that sowed the seeds for even bigger success of JTrade2019.
“We saw new businesses springing up, and relationships cemented across all kinds of affiliations, locations and backgrounds. We’ve improved lives, business, and the wider economy. I heard from many previous attendees in 2020 how it was those new business opportunities and industry contacts they made at JTrade which kept them afloat during the lockdowns. And that means a lot to me.”
It’s a situation Ari knows well, as JTrade had to sit out 2020 due to the restrictions. Instead, he turned his attention to his charity, Bedside Kosher, but it didn’t stop him planning for JTrade’s grand return.
A year’s business in two days
The event will return to ExCeL London, this time over two days, on the 8th-9th November.
“This is the biggest JTrade yet. This is the event our community needs to finally put restrictions behind us, and show the world our businesses are here, and ready to embrace the future.”
For real estate law specialist Avi Barr at BBS Law, JTrade has become the focal point of the year. “It’s an event like no other. From the last two shows alone, I’ve met so many new contacts in the industry that have now become clients. It’s such a powerful marketing and networking opportunity, and I can’t wait for JTrade2021.”
With the buzz already building on social media, and rumours that many old and new exhibitors are planning to unveil new products, exciting giveaways, and major recruitment drives, it really is an event not to be missed.
As Ari says, “There’s room for everyone here at JTrade. Whether you’re looking to grow your business, launch your brand-new enterprise, or simply looking to secure yourself a new career in the industry, this is the place to come. I see a lot of hope for the future. And that future starts with JTrade.”
