ORDERFOX.com, the Internet for the CNC Industry, has just added a new feature that is sure to add value to its community members, a free Global Event Calendar.
After listening to requests for additional features, and in an effort to provide free added value to its community members, ORDERRFOX.com’s latest feature is a Trade Show and Event Calendar. This feature provides information on trade shows and events, both locally and globally.
In the initial launch, stand out trade shows and events have been added that are key to various global markets. This is not a complete list of all shows and events available, but with the help of the community, ORDERFOX.com will add any and all events suggested, provided they are a benefit to the industry and the ORDERFOX.com community.
Currently with more than 270,000 community members, and more than 320,000 advertised and produced parts, the platform is already providing more added value than expected, as well as creating more transparency and increased predictability within the industrial market. With the addition of the new “Trade Show and Event Calendar” members can now centrally integrate both National and International events not just within their profile, but viewable to the community as well. This added value will easily benefit community members, especially in regard to visitor attendance, brand awareness, as well as lead to increased opportunities.
With community members providing specific information not just on well-known trade shows they plan to attend, but local events like regional trade shows, in-house events, open houses, product launches, dealer days, road shows and anniversaries, free access to publicize this information to the community can be a huge benefit.
The compilation and upload of an event can be done in just a few steps. In addition, community members can export the dates directly into their own calendar, regardless if it is Google, iCal or Outlook. The new extensive ORDERFOX.com calendar is centrally accessible on the platform and unique to the industry. It provides planning, security, and the opportunity for increasing business contacts.
To adapt and build upon this new section of the platform, the team at ORDERFOX.com is looking to make this section more useful to the community, with the addition of travel management functionality. In the future, members will be able to search for and book flights, find hotel accommodations, and even book rental cars for any event location directly on the platform.
