PALFINGER World Tour 2021 – Marine Edition: The innovative online event sets sails
PALFINGER invites customers and business partners to the World Tour for the second time and premieres with a Marine Edition. The digital event will see interactive presentations and discussions on the challenges and solutions of the marine market.
Following the successful premiere of the PALFINGER World Tour in October 2020, the digital event is now entering its second round. On June 16, 2021, the maritime industry will be the focus of uplifting presentations, world-class expert talks and captivating keynotes. Like last October, guests can participate interactively during the live stream broadcast worldwide. All content will be made available after the event on an on-demand platform.
The PALFINGER World Tour 2021 – Marine Edition will also be held under the tagline “Challenge Accepted” to focus on product innovations, market conditions, challenges, regional requirements and site presentations.
"As we cover such diverse markets ranging from aquaculture to offshore, oil and gas, wind, cruise, merchant, and governmental, PALFINGER’s marine business is required to always think one step ahead“, says Gunther Fleck, VP Sales & Service Region Marine. "We will present innovative product solutions, introduce our main service hubs and discuss market specifics together with specialists and our guests during interactive roundtables" summarizes Fleck. Yet, coming along with expert talks on topics like the art of launch and recovery of watercrafts, autonomous offshore cranes, fire-fighting boats, smart davits, and solutions for the evergrowing aquaculture industry, the motivational keynote by Freediving World Record Holder Herbert Nitsch sets another highlight.
