Project Cargo Summit 2020 becomes digital conference
In light of the most recent Covid-19 developments, the Project Cargo Summit 2020 will be hosted as a digital conference, while the physical exhibition and conference are being postponed to a safer date in February 2021, announces organizer Promedia.
“The project cargo and breakbulk industry have been severely impacted by the coronavirus and with the most recent announcements of the Dutch and German governments in mind, this situation is not likely to end soon”, says Promedia’s commercial director Arie van Dijk.
The Project Cargo Summit 2020, which is organized in close collaboration with Dutch Ship Brokers, was scheduled to take place in Rotterdam on 23-24 September, with the famous biannual Dutch Ship Brokers Dinner subsequently taking place on Friday the 25th.
“However, the chance that it will be business as usual in September is very slim. Even if large gatherings will be allowed again, many companies will first want to focus on getting their operations back on track. We have, therefore, decided to postpone the physical exhibition and conference to 10-11 February 2021”, says Van Dijk.
While safety is the top priority, Promedia is aware that in a crisis like this, the need for clear and reliable information is more urgent than ever. Van Dijk: “To ensure businesses maintain access to critical and useful information, we will host the Project Cargo Summit 2020 as a live-streamed, online event. This event will provide a platform where industry leaders will share their knowledge and experience to help companies around the globe navigate these challenging times.”
