About NBN

What we do

Market Intelligence

Information is not power. The use of information creates a powerful dynamic for our members. Our editorial and marketing team has only one objective: to bring value to the market. We are only digging for opportunities that we share with our members and the business community.

We asked our members and hundreds of prospects, face to face, what do they want. Based on our survey, conducted in four continents, we focused on five main areas:

  • Business Activities & Projects;
  • Marketing & Strategy;
  • Procurement & Supply Chain;
  • Safety & Regulation;
  • Technology

We carefully edit our information. Our editorial team keeps the information short, straight to the point, and focused into a call for action.

What we do

Branding & Promotion

The Fairs

We cooperate with the Fairs. Our definition of “Fair” includes Exhibition, Forum, Workshop, Conference, Seminars, and Webinars. We act either as a bridge of communication or perform as a subcontractor.

We assess the value of the Fair for our members, and we suggest three options:

  • We encourage them to come as a participant when the field is their business.
  • We suggest promoting their business either in a corporate booth or in a pavilion if their clients and new customers plan to visit the Fair.
  • We support some of our members to become a sponsor of the Fair if the outcome has tangible strategic value for their sales and marketing activities.

The Internet

We use comprehensive internet tools, including our website and social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube), to brand and promote our members. We publish their success and share their leadership skills in the community.

We believe that proximity is power: NBN is a multilingual business platform, in English, Arabic, and Chinese. For each piece of information, we receive from our members, we give it back to the business and scientific community, in the languages the most spoken in the emerging markets world.

NBN Membership

We promote our members in emerging markets because we believe that Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, the Indian Peninsula, and China offer growing business opportunities. We know how this challenging market is shifting daily and got the means to aid newcomers.
