On May 12 EFESME participated in the global webinar organized by ELEVATOR WORLD India to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the elevator industry. The Federation, represented by its President, Massimo Bezzi, one of the speakers, had the opportunity to speak and discuss with other important players in the sector, to analyse together the current situation, and exchange ideas and opinions on how to face, overcome and, why not, learn from the crisis generated by COVID-19.
As clearly stated by the moderators of the webinar, T. Bruce MacKinnon (ELEVATOR WORLD Inc.) and Anitha Raghunath (ELEVATOR WORLD India / Virgo Communications and Exhibitions), the sector, like the whole economy, is living a unique historical moment in its drama, but also in its opportunities. Faced with these changes, which one should not be afraid to define as epochal, the webinar is a first step towards sharing ideas, opinions and practices on how to react to this global crisis in order to find, together, ways to come out stronger.
The arguments discussed together were:
The success of the webinar, which was attended by more than 900 participants, has also shown, as repeatedly suggested during the course of the event itself, that remote training and education activities can be a very viable alternative to continue with the planned activities and events until the situation returns to relative normality, and that, by working and collaborating together, the lift industry can emerge stronger, more resilient, and more modern than before from this global crisis.
