The conference which took place from 15th to 17th March brought together freight forwarders from over 50 countries under one roof for three days of uninterrupted networking
Globalia Logistics Network’s 4th Annual Meeting which took place in Phuket, Thailand, from 15th to 17th March 2023 has had a very successful outcome. After organizing virtual conferences for two years because of the pandemic, the Globalia team finally got the chance to organize an in-person meeting bringing together freight forwarders from over 100 cities from 50 countries in one place for productive business networking and for building lasting partnerships.

Additionally, on the occasion of this meeting, Globalia created a new web app that allowed the delegates to constantly stay updated with the meeting agenda. On logging, into this application, the delegates could access every meeting information and check all the required information about the schedule of the conference which greatly helped the agents.
To quote Antonio Torres, the President and Founder of Globalia Logistics Network, “The meeting allowed our delegates to get acquainted with the new agents while consolidating the partnerships with the existing members. By bringing together hundreds of independent freight forwarders from all corners of the globe, we have been able to promote a sense of trust and bonding within our network, which will have a positive impact on the number of concerted projects.”
In course of the two days of the Meeting, the delegates conducted numerous one-to-one meetings with their chosen partners. The one-to-one business talks which constituted the most important aspect of the conference allowed the delegates to sit face-to-face with their partners and discuss the possibilities of collaborative projects. Lastly, these meetings helped the members to showcase their business, and explain their areas of expertise to their fellow partners thereby laying the foundation for trust and a better working relationship.
The Group Tour, the Welcome Cocktail Reception, and the Gala Dinner Party were some of the highlights of the event that allowed the delegates to wind down and have a relaxing time in a friendly and informal ambiance. In other words, these socializing activities coupled with the formal in-person meetings formed the perfect balance between business and leisure.
In the words of one of the attending members "I want to thank the entire Globalia team for all the hard work to provide such a well-organized and successful conference. We have some future projects on hand and we are looking forward to the upcoming event.”
Globalia’s 4th Annual Meeting at Phuket was a successful endeavour that has allowed the agents to return home with plenty of business prospects in hand. Attending the event has enabled the members to grow their operations by serving new territories and forging lasting partnerships.
