Coming together – Getting stronger – Moving forward

From 5th of Feb. - 7th of Feb., we held our annual EUROVAN-Meeting in Garmisch, Germany. With 52 participants from 19 different countries it was by far the largest meeting of its kind in our history. For us, this is a very good reason to be proud of ourselves since it shows that growth, popularity as well as positive perception is strongly increasing.

Having started as a network of 27 partners in 15 countries, we almost doubled these figures: With our now 42 partners in 28 countries, we are no longer an European but an International Movers’ Network. 

The meeting itself focused primarily on the exchange of essential information for the network and each of our partners respectively, e.g. key note speech by Mr. Frank Lierz who informed the participants about the on-going changes (and those to come in the far and not so far future) in the international moving industry.

A topic that was later greatly and deeply discussed by our experts which let each of us get a better insight in special markets and the challenges therein particularly.

But next to all the factual information, the meeting also focused on the social side of our network since we all know that everybody prefers making business with people you know and on whom you can rely – just like our members.

So it was a very successful meeting in every professional aspect. Surely, every participant will agree on that and would even share our opinion that everyone who could not make it to join us in City, should try hard to make it next time and take part in our upcoming annual EUROVAN meeting on February next year.

We are already looking forward to seeing you there.

Keep on moving!
