Trade fairs were postponed, then cancelled. The same thing happened to the many conferences scheduled around the world, making face-to-face contact that more difficult.
Exactly: being able to see each other and form new networks is essential in the container shipping industry. This is how you meet new partners and grow your business. And, despite the worldwide pandemic, you still need to work – and network.
Maybe you’re looking for a new agent in Indonesia or Hamburg. Or you want to buy or sell containers in Mumbai and Turkey. But for you to do any of this, you need to find companies and new partners that you can work with. Something you would normally go to the now cancelled fairs and conferences to look for.
STILL FACE TO FACE
But that doesn’t mean that all hope is lost, and that you won’t be able to meet new partners face-to-face this year.
At the virtual conference ‘Digital Container Summit’, hosted by Container xChange, you will get a full day of personal video meetings with other shipping companies. Organised for you to increase your partner network and discuss business with thousands of freight forwarders, shipping lines, NVOs, and container traders.
The personal meetings are carried out via video conferencing on event day. You can schedule personal meetings with thousands of owners, directors and operations people from the container shipping industry. That way, it doesn’t have to keep you from networking face-to-face if you can’t travel. You can do all that in the comfort of your home at the DCS2020 - online.
LEADERS OF INDUSTRY
As with any physical conference, there will also be keynotes speeches by industry leaders at the Digital Container Summit 2020. But. unlike a physical conference, there will, at the online DCS2020, be keynotes for 24 hours - regardless of whether you’re in Mumbai, Los Angeles, Shanghai, or Rotterdam. Every time zone has been planned to ensure everyone can see the keynotes from the many thought leaders at the summit.
Speakers include industry leaders such as Ralf Belusa, CDO at Hapag Lloyd, Supply Chain, Thomas Bagge, CEO at Digital Container Shipping Association, and Lars Jensen, CEO at SeaIntelligence Consulting - and many more.
All the keynotes will be streamed live and feature an interactive chat. That gives you the opportunity to be kept up to date on the latest trends in the container logistics industry, as well as ask questions and comment on the topics discussed.
Apart from keynotes and networking there will also be workshops. One of them will be on how businesses can adjust to remote work - something many firms are still working on.
