Globalia's Annual Meeting

Globalia is organizing a Virtual Meeting for its members for the second time on 14th to 15th October 2021! Save the date!

Last year, Globalia members had a successful Virtual Meeting without leaving the safety of their own homes. Even in 2021, holding an in-person meeting is not possible under the present circumstances of the pandemic. For this reason, we have decided to arrange Globalia’s Second Virtual Meeting, where members will be able to participate in up to 32 one-to-one videoconferences of 20 minutes duration with other members they have previously chosen.

Ranked as one of the best freight forwarding network, we have upgraded our meeting platform to make this year’s event an even better experience for connecting, networking and collaborating. All you need to do to participate is to register for the meeting, schedule your meetings, test the program and access the Globalia platform on the 14th and 15th of October.

The convenient meeting platform integrated in our website will ensure an exceptional videoconferencing experience as per your agenda. Additionally, we have taken special care to accommodate delegates from various time-zones to provide the much-needed flexibility for our members.

A detailed and careful planning is the most critical factor for conducting your one-to-one meetings successfully. Listed below is a series of guidelines and suggestions which you need to bear in mind before starting the one-to-one meetings.

  • Carefully think about the objectives of this meeting and all the information you’d like to share and get from your partner.
  • Prepare an elevator speech that should be like a marketing statement about your company. This should help to advertise the services you’re offering, highlight your specialties and make your partner aware of the business you can offer.

Tips to be prepared for the Virtual Meeting

  1. Globalia’s team will schedule a test with each company to test the platform. Make sure to use the same PC/laptop and internet connection during the test that you will be using during the actual Meeting. Antivirus may block the program, so in case it does not work, make sure you have them deactivated. This will help to avoid last minute problems.
  2. The better your IT equipment is (headphones, microphone, webcam and internet connection) the better quality your videoconferences will have.
  3. Check your agenda according to your time zone carefully.
