The all-free event will bring together more than 2,500 participants, including industry leaders
LONGUEUIL, June 11, 2020 – GLM Conseil, a leader in operational and digital efficiency in Quebec, and Axya, a digital manufacturing platform, are proud to host the country’s first virtual manufacturing trade show. LeSalonBleu.ca will allow the industry to meet in a completely virtual environment with the aim of fostering business development and stimulating the sharing of innovative practices. The free event will be held on Wednesday, June 17 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on www.leSalonBleu.ca.
In the context of the global health crisis in Covid-19, several manufacturers have seen their value chains greatly affected or evenparalyzed. Notable events in the community have also been postponed, affecting business relations. Working with the various players in the industry, the organizers of the event understood the importance of taking action.
“This gathering is more than necessary,” says Benoit Cormier, co-founder of GLM Conseil. “Manufacturers need to reconnect, discuss and redefine business practices to ensure their sustainability. We have the expertise, the contacts and the technology. We decided to put everything at the service of the industry through the SalonBleu.ca,” concludes Mr. Cormier.
“The current situation is forcing a rethinking of supplier location strategies. It is more essential than ever to offer meeting places to foster partnerships, and to be able to do so effectively,” says Nicolas Gauthier, co-founder of Axya.
LeSalonBleu.ca offers an intuitive virtual environment consisting of a main stage with speakers and five specialized pavilions: Manufacturer, Technology, Services, Financing, Association. Visitors can easily meet more than 50 exhibitors on video conference and continue discussions in private rooms if needed. For 5 hours, the event will bring together nearly 2500 people from the manufacturing industry who will be able to innovate, connect and share from the comfort of their office.
