Virtual and Hybrid Events: Trends for 2022

In the past two years, events have been evolving to match the current situation. All businesses are forced to adapt and implement what is still possible to reach the target audience. According to new research from LinkedIn (interview with more than 1,800 marketers from 13 countries) 85% of these had held virtual events from the last year alone. The virtual event will most likely continue to grow its trends, but 78% of these said that in-person events will return once the situation changes.

Other study from markletic shows that around a third of event organizers say they are expecting to invest in hybrid events for the near future. Most of the larger companies will more likely host hybrid events where in-person content with virtual content are combined. The software for such events will be also in demand and will grow within the next few years. Some of the benefits of hybrid events are: it allows your company to maximize revenue through cutting back on travel budget and also boost attendance numbers.

As a network of professionals for factory relocation, GIRN has done some virtual events to connect members and partners throughout the world and also introduce our networks to potential members and partners. We strongly believe that an in-person event is the best way for networking, therefore an Annual Meeting is already on our agenda, should the situation allow it. By combining virtual and in-person events, we will continue to facilitate our members and partners to be connected and grow business together.

The Benefits and Important Factors of Factory Relocation for your Business

In the time when your business is growing, it can also have a great problem, and one of it is an increased demand from customers in your current production facility. In this time, you will most likely need to consider finding a new place.

This could be done by relocating your production plant. Some benefits of plant relocation are more space for the production plant, increased capacity, closer to customers, better infrastructure or tax benefits. The process is not an easy task and it takes a lot of effort and experiences from professionals in the relocation industry. To move such complex machinery at the center of any manufacturing requires great planning and know-how.

It is very important to coordinate such a process, to prevent a delay or miscalculation that can disturb your production time. Therefore we are GIRN, a network where all professionals in the dismantling, installation and machinery moving are connected. Quality and trust are our priorities to provide the best service possible to clients.

Through our network, we are passionate to deliver the benefits for your plant relocation project globally. We are also partnered with other services that complement all relocation projects, such as Logistics companies that are specialized in project cargo, Manpower provider and 3D Scanning. Our goal is to give our members a one-stop-solution for the clients that can boost your job chances and be present in the international market.

Transport of a Complete Refinery from Switzerland to Antwerp Port by 7WL

Since 5 weeks already now 7WL has started the operation to move a complete refinery from Switzerland to Antwerp Port which does involve around 30-40 FCL loadings as well as around 10-20 OOG loadings per week.  In order to establish a competitive set up – pricewise and operational  – 7 WL is using the complete range of freight forwarding.

The positioning as well as full pick up of the FCL part is being done by a mix of barge, rail as well as truck involvements – depending on actual needs and options. And same goes for the OOG part of this project – depending on the loads per week we check for the best suitable way to move the cargo to Antwerp port area – by direct trucks or alternatively of course by barge combinations.

7WL is on site during the complete project duration – supervising the logistic operations, discussing on different scenarios and options and last but not least of course as troubleshooter if needed.

Together with our partners and subcontractors we look forward to an exciting time. And of course: We will send regular updates.
