BGS 2012 had a turnover of approximately R$50 million in business and promoted over a thousand business meetings through its Matchmaking System. This was one of the main innovations of the 2012 edition, which will be maintained next year.

Social

Over its four days, BGS collected more than 40 tonnes of non-perishable food, which were donated to Casa Hope, an institution that assists in care for children and adolescents with cancer. The Event's organizers appreciate the collaboration of all visitors, which was critical to the success of this initiative.
