Global event logistics specialists DB Schenker have pledged their support for the Exhibition Think Tank (ETT) Club’s ‘Journey to reopen the exhibition industry’ project.
As some regions begin to host live events again, and others wait for restrictions to lift, the ETT Club is supporting the exhibition industry through the process of reopening through an initiative involving a series of online sessions in which friends of the exhibition industry share their knowledge and experiences of how to reopen events, to support others along the journey of reopening.
Since the Journey to reopen project started in March, it has gained significant support across the industry. More than 120 exhibition executives have agreed to act as ambassadors for the reopening journey, and more than 12 online session ideas have been submitted to the ETT Club.
DB Schenker joins Ungerboeck as a sponsoring partner of the project.
The online sessions began on 31 March, with ETT Club members from the Middle East sharing their insights and experiences of reopening live shows. The journey continued with sessions on the changes in our industry brought about by Covid-19.
Upcoming online sessions will offer the chance to discuss if the time is right for show launch opportunities and whether technology can support the restart of events. The online sessions will run until June at least, the organisers say.
“DB Schenker is proud to play an active role in the Journey to reopen the exhibition industry and is ready to support the global exhibition industry as a reliable and trusted partner in the challenging times ahead,” says Matthias Dornscheidt, vice-president global fairs and exhibitions, DB Schenker.
The ETT Club is a global online platform for exhibition industry professionals to network, debate and to help the industry move forward.
