GWC launches first industry hybrid forum
The recent regional transformation into a world hub for Mega-events has driven vast growth in the logistics sector as key logistics providers work around the clock to make these gigantic events possible.
GWC is hosting a first industry hybrid event, ‘Getting you in the Game’, to launch the discussion on mega-events logistics on 16 November 2021, where it will showcase the behind-the-scenes activities that make enormous and exceptional mega-events a success, with legacies that echo across the globe.
Industry experts will examine trends and transformation in logistics through a keynote speech, two panels, and two workshop sessions.
The first panel will discussion and explore the logistics behind mega sporting events, with speakers from industries ranging from sports and events logistics, aviation and beyond. While the second panel will focus on the region’s transformation into a world-class events hub, how it continues to grow, and the role of logistics providers as it accelerates; speakers in this panel will represent a range of industries covering Education, technology, courier, and FMCG.
“Logistics play a significant role during sporting events to ensure smooth and efficient delivery of complex and large-scale events, which involves executing a broad spectrum of logistics services in the lead up, during and after the final whistle.” GWC Group CEO, Ranjeev Menon commented.
“Moreover, the forum will bring attention to the hard work that is going into the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, turning it into a showcase for Qatar and the region,” he added.
GWC will be involved extensively in the tournament operations, from venue logistics, broadcasting and cold-chain logistics to shipping, customs clearance, transport and warehousing. It will offer end-to-end tracking and execution, from point of entry to point of use, and highly coordinated reverse logistics.
