Virtual Meeting Place

TEP - Virtual - for good reasons

TEP is a virtual meeting place for Logistics Professionals. Although meeting other people face-to-face has the indisputable advantage of personal interaction, TEP offers several benefits with its virtual concept.

Reverse Scheduling Logic In the physical world, conference rooms have to be booked a long time in advance, and cancellations are expensive. TEP can offer a "reverse scheduling logic" for its workshops, seminars and xchange meetings. TEP schedules the event AFTER enough participants have signed up!

Hot Topics TEP events can cover hot topics. The preparation of an event does not require a long planning period.

Train more People Last but not least: Virtual events and especially workshops are much cheaper. No travel cost expenditures and no travel time. You could train more people on more topics in less time for lower costs!
