The virtual fair does not replace the "physical" one, but in case it expands its scope

It is more than 1,100 active users, including exhibitors and visitors, the balance sheet of the Green Logistics Intermodal Forum, the digital event focused on sustainable logistics and post Covid-19 that took place on Thursday and Friday on the digital platform of Fiera di Padova. If you do conferences and webinars online is now an activity consolidated, the creation of real fairs totally online is in a phase that is still evolving and is the outcome of Green Logistics was therefore largely positive Intermodal Forum is the result of its more than 67 online events included in the virtual two-day program alongside the two conferences and thanks to the platform to carry out events digital trade fairs developed by Fiera di Padova. The latter, in particular, has allowed companies to have a real and virtual stand that can be customized with images, movies and their own webinar program, but above all it allowed them to meet visitors via videocall.

"It is thanks to this platform - underlined the general manager of Fiera di Padova, Luca Veronesi - who in these two days visitors and exhibitors were able to meet to evaluate new business opportunities in absolute safety and without any barrier represented by the distance Geographical. The enthusiasm with which this virtual event underlines the needs of operators moments of confrontation, dialogue and business that only trade fairs are able to give. However, it must be emphasized - he Veronesi pointed out - that this type of experience is not designed to completely replace "physical" fairs, because in every human relationship, even in commercial relations, there is a need for real contact. Rather, it is a very interesting opportunity for the future, even when this pandemic will cease, in order to broaden the scope of trade fairs in both spatial and temporal terms.
