吴经理,好久不见啊,你们今年也来参展啊!

Mr Wu, long time no see, you came to take part in the expo this year too!
是啊,陈总!这个展是我们业务部每年的固定行程。

Yes, Ms. Chen! This is a fixed part of our sales department's itinerary.
你去年不是说,成效不佳,今年可能就不打算来了?
nǐ qùnián búshì shuō ,chéngxiào bù jiā ,jīnnián kěnéng jiù bù dǎsuàn lái le ?
Didn't you say last year that results weren't good and that this year you weren't planning on coming?
欸,其实现在网路发达,我们很多客户都是直接在网上联络。我并不觉得参展很有效率,但是我们老板还是觉得参展有它的好处。

Oh! Actually, nowadays the internet is so developed, lots of our clients contact us directly online. I don't think that attending the expo is very effective, but the boss thinks that attending still has some benefits.
