The coronavirus pandemic is a global challenge for the economy as well as for society and demands a lot of flexibility from businesses and people. For viadonau, health always has priority. Due to the current development, the company has decided to postpone the Danube Business Talks planned for October 2020. After an extended waiting time, business and shipping companies, logistics experts, interested parties and Danube fans can positively look forward to the top event in terms of Danube logistics in autumn 2021.
„Postponed“ does not mean „abandoned“! With the Danube Business Talks, every two years viadonau offers a popular platform for the transport and logistics sector to exchange views and to discuss topics relevant to the danube river. In view of the current developments of the virus pandemic and the requirements adopted by the Austrian Federal Government, but most importantly in consideration of the health of an international audience, the company decided with a heavy heart to postpone the Danube Business Talks, which were planned to take place on 14 and 15 October in Linz, until next year. The year one after the start of the global corona crisis will symbolize the economic restart in the Danube region and in Europe, which will be presented all the more brilliantly at the Danube Business Talks in 2021 – with current trends, innovations and attractive future prospects on the river.
Especially during the most intense phase of the crisis, the Danube waterway has proven its great potential as an environmentally friendly and high-performance transport option, but also as a reliable supplier of essential goods. viadonau looks confidently into the future of the Danube region and hopes to be able to do this again in 2021 together with numerous high-ranking experts at the Danube Business Talks 2021.
Save the date: 13 and 14 October 2021 in the Palais Kaufmännischer Verein in Linz.
