Kuala Lumpur, 16th May 2018: Globalia’s 2nd Annual Meeting brought together more than 90 independent freight forwarders from over 50 countries of the globe, with a 60% increase in the attendance of new members. Globalia members came together from 9th May to 11th May at Kuala Lumpur to promote their individual businesses and to touch base with their partners for enhanced possibilities of cooperation in the days to come.
Globalia’s 2nd Annual Meeting offered the members the perfect opportunity to partner with other members from all around the world and showcase their business on a truly international platform. Every attending agent got to schedule 22 one-to-one meetings with other members which were pre-booked through the one-to-one meeting scheduler. Some of the highlights of the conference included a welcome cocktail reception and a gala dinner party which provided a welcome break from all the business talks. It goes without saying that the one-to-one meetings which formed the core networking activity of the conference gave the members plenty of opportunities to strengthen the bonds within the network and paved the path for a mutually beneficial business relationship.
It needs to be mentioned that one of the major events at this year’s Annual Meeting was the introduction of the FreightViewer software which enables the members to generate instant online door to door quotations for their clients and partners from more than 120 countries. This freight rate management software is expected to immensely facilitate the business activities of the members by reducing their quote processing time from days to just a few hours.
As stated by Antonio Torres, the Founder and President of Globalia Logistics Network, “Apart from the creation and development of reciprocal business relationships, the attendees also got a chance to appreciate the quality of fellow Globalia members.” Mr. Torres has further added that “The turnout rate for this year’s meeting has been fantastic, considering the fact that this is just our second year.”
Additionally, during the whole year, Globalia has been joined by a 25% more members and the network is presently covering 21% more countries than the previous year, with 163 agents and almost 120 countries. All this wouldn’t have been possible without the active participation of Globalia members and the diligence and commitment of their team.
Virginia Molpeceres, Co-founder of Globalia Logistics Network, also stated “Our team is absolutely enthralled with the success of our 2nd Annual Meeting. We couldn’t have been happier about the fact that our team has been joined by 25% more members than the previous year and our Annual meeting witnessed a 60% increase in attendance of new members.”
Globalia agents are getting ready to fly to Kuala Lumpur to attend the 2’nd Globalia Logistics Annual Meeting at the Intercontinental Hotel from the 9th to the 11th May
After the success of Globalia’s 1st Annual Meeting, this year Globalia agents from more than 60 countries who would arrive at the Intercontinental Hotel to meet face to face with their fellow agents and potential partners. After completing the formality of onsite registration, the agents along with their spouses will be attending the welcome cocktail reception. On the 10th of May, the participants will be attending the official opening and presentation ceremony which would be presided over by Globalia President and Founder Antonio Torres.
Fostering the development of a spirit of mutual cooperation between members is the core agenda of the meeting which is why Globalia allows each agent to book up to 22 one-to-one meetings with their current and potential partners in course of the 2 days of the meeting. Over 2000 meetings have been already scheduled by agents with other members within the network. The 3 days of the conference would give the members a platform to effectively promote their individual businesses, appreciate the quality of other Globalia agents and create lasting ties with fellow members which would eventually lead to a greater business volume.
The Gala Dinner on the 2nd evening of the conference would give the attendees a chance to indulge in merrymaking and allow them to foster the networking ties in a more informal setting. All the agents and their spouses will be treated at one of the finest restaurants in the city where they will experience a scrumptious dining experience followed by a little fun time with other members. On the 3rd day, there will be another tight session of one-to-one meetings after which the conference will be officially closed.
After attending Globalia’s 1st Annual Meeting, the representative of Columbia Transport SRL, Globalia Milan commented that: “We highly appreciate the professionalism shown by the Globalia team in the organization of the Annual Meeting. We are delighted with the coverage that the network has reached within a year, the quality of its members, the payment protection plan and of course the port exclusivity of the members. We hope to know our partners better at the next Annual Globalia Meeting.” It goes without saying that Globalia’s 2nd Annual Meeting is going to be even more successful than last year and we sincerely hope that the networking opportunities turn out to be highly productive for all our agents.
