First held in 2007, SLOVLOG is not only the oldest but also the largest congress for the logistics and transportation markets in Slovakia. The aim of the congress is to inform and inspire logistics professionals and to allow them the opportunity to learn about new trends and best practices in their industries. At the same time, the congress provides ample opportunities for the participants to make new business contacts while strengthening existing ones.
The 14th edition of SLOVLOG will include a full-day conference program including three specialized afternoon workshops: Autolog, Retailog and LOG-IN, focused on logistics for the automotive industry, the retail and FMCG sectors and support for innovation in logistics. The accompanying program of the congress will include BizLOG (organized speed-dating meetings); the Gala Evening of Logistics Innovation at which the LOG-IN Awards (awards for the best innovations from the Slovak logistics market in 2020) will be handed out; SEELOG (visits to leading logistics platforms for a chance to see logistics in practice); and the Logistics Business Mixer, the ever-popular informal evening networking party.
In the morning, all participants gather together to hear inspirational talks, presentations from top logistics experts from Slovakia and the world, and panel discussions with key figures from the industry discussing and debating topics that influence the Slovak logistics and transportation industries.
After the lunch break, the program is broken up into three specialized workshops that focus more specifically on logistics for a key industry of the Slovak economy. This allows logistics professionals from that sector to get a deeper understanding of the challenges facing his or her company.
BizLOG is a series of organized speed-dating meetings between participants and partners of the event that takes place during the lunch break. The 10-minute meetings are fully arranged by the organizers and allow the two sides to quickly judge whether it makes sense to plan a more detailed meeting at a later point.
The ever-popular evening networking program of the congress is the ideal place to make new business contacts while strengthening existing ones. The event features a buffet dinner, live music, a cocktail bar, wine and beer tastings, and games and competitions to entertain the guests and facilitate networking.
On the second day of the congress, participants have the opportunity to SEE LOGistics in practice. We arrange guided tours of the top warehouses and production facilities in the area surrounding the congress venue, giving the participants a chance to see logistics in action.
