Important questions and answers (FAQ) about EUROGUSS MEXICO
EUROGUSS MEXICO, was originally scheduled to take place from 4 to 6 May 2021, and now is moving online. The onsite event at the Expo Guadalajara exhibition centre will be replaced by the EUROGUSS MEXICO Virtual Weeks, an online event just under three weeks long. With this decision we react to the changed conditions caused by the dynamic pandemic development and its effects on the entire value chain of the non-ferrous casting sector. At the same time, it provides planning security in good time for the entire internationally linked sector. This is in response to the express wish of the industry for its meeting place for exchanging ideas, networking and knowledge transfer with experts and discovering trends and innovations. During the event experts and end users from the entire spectrum of the non-ferrous casting segment will be able to share information and network with each other in the virtual space. On each Tuesday, i.e. 4, 11 and 18 May, the virtual platform will also offer a comprehensive program of presentations, lectures and seminars that will then be available on demand for the entire duration of the event.
The EUROGUSS MEXICO Virtual Weeks is not a virtual exhibition in the strict sense. It is a digital platform for presenting your company and products, for communicating with potential customers and partners, and for knowledge transfers. As an exhibitor, you’ll be presenting your company not in a virtual (graphical) booth, but on an individualised company profile page.
The platform will be accessible and available to all users from April 27 until May 31, 2021. During this time, you will still be able to view exhibitor and participant profiles and contact users via the chat tool.
The platform will be open 24 hours to provide worldwide access. Chat messages can be sent around the clock and the recorded content of the congress program can be accessed. Since a delayed reply to chat messages is also possible, similar to e-mails.
