There is no question about it: the recent developments of the global COVID 19 outbreak have shaped our world and society in a way we have not seen in a long time. In some areas of the business world, the consequences have been more severe, while in others, the impact has been minimal. Either way, one thing is certain: businesses are being forced to adapt to the new and rapidly changing situation - a risk or an opportunity?
In response to canceled and postponed trade shows have Joint Forces for Solar (JF4S) and the International Battery & Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) used the difficult situation to their advantage and are about to launch the world's first e-marketplace "Solar & Storage DigiCon" on July 15, 2020.
Unique virtual marketplace
The Solar & Storage DigiCon is the world's first e-marketplace that takes place in a virtual environment. The platform brings companies and their stakeholders together: around the globe, over several months and around the clock. On the virtual platform, where many opportunities are offered as on regular congresses, companies can present their products, services and latest technologies as well as get in touch with their customers in personal chats or video calls. Some of the participating target groups of the virtual event are installers, developers, EPC companies, investors and policy makers.
To make the e-marketplace more attractive and interesting, Live Days will be held focusing on key regions. The first focus region will be Europe. The first Live Days "The Renaissance of Europe" will take place on July 28 from 09:00 to 16:00 (CET) (part 1) and on another date (part 2) in September. The exact date for the second part will be communicated shortly. Some of the topics to be discussed are for example innovative technologies, digitalization and financing mechanisms of the solar industry.
Virtual exhibition environment
The virtual exhibition takes place in an exciting virtual environment, and the principle is similar to regular trade shows. After logging in, visitors are directed to the entrance area, where they can start their journey and navigate between different exhibition halls, virtual auditoriums, webinars, exhibition booths and networking areas. At the virtual booth, visitors can get to know the companies and interact with their employees through written chats and video calls, as well as access brochures, datasheets and other interesting marketing materials.
Launch and Live Days with regional focus
The electronic marketplace will be launched on July 15. After that, visitors can register to visit the platform free of charge. Access is possible around the clock from anywhere in the world. The first Live Days focusing on Europe will take place on July 28 and on a second day in September, and during this time you will be able to meet our staff in person at the virtual booth between 09:00 and 16:00 (CET) and talk to them about our products and our company. The Live Days event series will continue, focusing on North America in September, Latin America in October, the Middle East in November and Asia Pacific in December. The exact dates for the remaining Live Days will be published as the event progresses.
