In a business like Cordlife Group's, customer acquisition is made easier through face-to-face interaction than through virtual webinars.

For some two and a half years Covid-19 restrictions shut down trade fairs, and impacted Cordlife's client sign-ups. 

With many countries transitioning to living with Covid as an endemic disease, business operations have returned to normal and Cordlife happily jumped back into the No.1 expo event that attracts parents-to-be in Singapore.

Held from 30 Jun to 3 Jul 2022 at the Singapore Expo, the event named Mummys Market reportedly attracted over 100,000 visitors. 

The event featured a wide range of products and services for parents-to-be and their newborns.

Cordlife said it was unable to share information on the number of client sign-ups from Mummys Market event, as this is information that it does not disclose publicly.

"However, these events are usually important sources of leads and sign-ups, and Cordlife will be participating in more events in the next half year."

When Covid restrictions eliminated trade fairs and antenatal seminars, that impacted client sign-ups.

This was mitigated by digital initiatives of Cordlife, which owns the largest network of cord blood banks in Asia, as well as savings in selling and marketing expenses, and corporate travel expenses.

This has impacted new client signups for our banking services over the year. Nevertheless, the Group remained agile and has adapted accordingly by venturing into new business avenues and increasing cost efficiency in our service delivery."
