This event brings together experts in logistics, trade and technology to analyse the main trends and challenges facing the maritime transport sector. It also allows interaction with operators, ports, terminals, technology providers and other representatives of the port community in an interactive environment to improve the competitiveness and productivity of the sector and to address the new needs arising from an exceptional situation such as the present one, where the focus has been placed on the importance of logistics and trade activity on a global level. In this sense, Valenciaport has played a strategic role in the supply of products during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Covid-19 does not stop promotional activity

In recent years, Valenciaport has increased the use and implementation of technology for holding forums and congresses, and maintaining direct contact with other institutions, ports and interest groups. The Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) continues, in spite of the situation generated by the pandemic, with its promotional activity in the main world events of the logistics, port and tourism sector to present the new products and services of the ports of Valencia, Sagunto and Gandía. The PAV has adapted its promotion and marketing tools to the virtual events that have emerged to adapt to the Covid-19, establishing the platforms to continue with direct attention through online media with clients and specifiers, which is combined with the physical presence at the events that are being held such as the CILF in Shenzen.
