Apart from the one-to-one meetings, there was also a live online demonstration of all the new features and functions of Globalia’s member-exclusive TMS FreightViewer
Globalia Logistics Network has successfully concluded its first-ever Virtual Meeting held on the 14th and 15th of October 2020. The Virtual Meeting afforded an opportunity to the delegates to come together on one platform and continue with the networking in the absence of a direct face to face meeting.
The Virtual Meeting was carried on via Globalia’s exclusive user-friendly platform created by the IT Department of Globalia. Furthermore, the whole team of the network was involved in the assistance of possible technical issues the agents may have. All of this resulted in a very positive user experience.
“Given the circumstances, this year we couldn’t manage to assemble in person but the impeccable arrangement of our first Virtual Meeting made sure that agents could meet online, enhancing the mutual trust and bonding among members within the network. Additionally, being an online event, it eliminated all the hindrances to participation and reduced expenditure in terms of time and money,” declares Antonio Torres, the President and Founder of Globalia Logistics Network.
Delegates from around 50 countries attended the Virtual Meeting and congratulated Globalia’s team for their efforts and support: “I can honestly can say the meeting could not have been better, it was near perfect. It was very well organized and really worth it. I thank Globalia’s team for their constant support and assistance“, commented one of the delegates from the United States.”
Like every year the meeting commenced with a speech from Antonio Torres which was followed by a presentation on how the program worked and then members started with the one-to-one video conferences where they consolidated their relationships with existing and future partners and discussed the prospects of exchange of projects in the future. Apart from the one-to-one video conferences, there was also a presentation of all the most recent features of FreightViewer, Globalia’s member-exclusive quote generation, and freight rate management software.
The Virtual Event required months of preparation on part of the Globalia team and organizing an event with delegates from so many different time zones was indeed an exigent job that was executed flawlessly. Mr. Torres further adds, “The Virtual Meeting presented a unique opportunity in 2020 for members to come together and augment their businesses within the network during these difficult times. The cooperation among members is of paramount importance, since together members will be able to get over this crisis period.”
