UK-based independent maritime publication, Petrospot, on Thursday (13 August) shared three key benefits to signing up for Global Bunkering Summit 2020 (GBS2020), the first virtual conference of its kind for the bunkering sector.
With some global Coronavirus restrictions beginning to ease, the temptation to get out and recommence the face-to-face engagement we’ve all missed is overwhelming – yet the ability to host large, interactive gatherings safely and responsibly is still some way off, said Petrospot.
However, a lack of the personal interaction shouldn’t make online conferencing any less palatable as an opportunity, it added.
Firstly, the Global Bunkering Summit 2020 is free.
Experience the next generation of virtual conferencing
Flexible face-time with leading experts
“GBS2020 is designed to be an agile experience which you can customise to suit your business needs,” said Petrospot.
“Between a packed agenda of key insights and the ability to connect directly with others, you have the freedom to seek out the relevant intelligence and expertise for your specific challenges, and take control of the value you get from your experience.
“What’s more, with playback enabled for all conference sessions, any session you de-prioritise in favour of a one-to-one will still be available to you once the event is over.”
For full details about the conference and its programme, and to register attendance, please visit the Global Bunkering Summit 2020 homepage.
