Beviale Mexico 2021 eSpecial: Exhibitors' frequently asked questions
As of 12.02.2021
Beviale Mexico, which was originally scheduled to take place from 2 to 4 March 2021, is moving online. The onsite event at the Expo Guadalajara exhibition centre will be replaced by the Beviale Mexico eSpecial, an online event just under three weeks long. With this decision we react to the changed conditions caused by the dynamic pandemic development and its effects on the entire beverage industry along the product chain. At the same time, it provides planning security in good time for the entire internationally linked sector. This is in response to the express wish of the industry for its meeting place for exchanging ideas, networking and knowledge transfer with experts and discovering trends and innovations.

During the event experts and end users from the entire beverage industry will be able to share information and network with each other in the virtual space. On each Tuesday, March 16th , 23rd and 30th 2021, the virtual platform will also offer a comprehensive program of presentations, lectures and seminars that will then be available on demand for the entire duration of the event.
The Beviale Mexico eSpecial offers a meeting place for the entire international beverage industry along the product chain. Benefit from the reach of the virtual Beviale Mexico eSpecial: Present your company and your product innovations, share your know-how, let your employees participate in top-class lectures and enable your sales team to make new contacts and acquire orders.
The Beviale Mexico eSpecial is based on two main components: product and company presentations in addition to regional beverage associations and trade organizations lectures. As an exhibitor, you can present your company your services via an individual company profile page. This serves as the first point of contact for every potential customer - in a way, it is your business card and a substitute for your exhibition stand at the same time. You can assign an unlimited number of employees to your profile free of charge.
As participants of the event, they can visit exhibitor presentations on the virtual platform, view participant and company profiles and get in touch with potential customers or partners via various communication tools. In a first step, they are supported by an integrated matchmaking tool that suggests contacts that are specifically interesting for them.
You can set up the language that suits you under "Settings". Here you can choose from various languages for navigation on the platform. However, please note that the company profiles themselves are only displayed in English and Spanish.
The platform will be open 24 hours to provide worldwide access. Chat messages can be sent around the clock and the recorded content of the congress program can be accessed. Since a delayed reply to chat messages is also possible, similar to e-mails, a "night service" is not necessary.
We also know how important personal contact at trade fairs is for companies and of course a virtual event cannot completely replace personal contact. This year, due to Covid-19, many major industry events, trade shows and conferences had to be cancelled. Personal customer contact was also noticeably limited in many areas. Beviale Mexico eSpecial offers a meeting place for the beverage industry along the production chain with the opportunity of personal exchange.
That's why we've incorporated a wide range of available communication tools as core components of the event platform, along with a comprehensive matchmaking tool that includes all participants. Define your offer and your search criteria precisely, find the right contacts for you and contact them directly - via chat, video call or 1:1 meeting.
Benefit from the reach of the digital event: present your company, your product innovations, share your expertise, let your employees participate in top-class lectures, and enable your sales team to make new contacts based on a comprehensive matchmaking tool and acquire orders to strengthen your position in the mexican market.
The basis for matchmaking is an algorithm embedded in the platform that takes into account all the content and information requested from the participants during onboarding and generates personalised results on this basis. The highest matches are displayed in the "Best Matches". In addition, the matches with other participants can be viewed directly in the respective participant profiles ("Participants" section).
