Over the past several years in Columbus, Ohio, Clean Fuels Ohio has hosted the Midwest Green Transportation Forum & Expo. As the COVID-19 pandemic has raised many questions about the safety of travel and large group gatherings, the Clean Fuels Ohio staff and Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel the in-person conference and move the event to a digital platform.
Clean Fuels Ohio has partnered with the app development team, Whova, to ease the transition of the event to the digital space. While details are still being finalized, attendees can expect the same level of high-value content. The Whova app allows organizations to host a virtual conference, provide presentations and create networking opportunities for a large number of people over a wide, geographical area. Plenary and breakout sessions can be hosted on a variety of integrated video platforms, virtual networking time can be built in and exhibitors can utilize the e-business card exchange and lead retrieval functions to supplement their interactions with attendees.
“We believe that the Midwest Green Transportation Forum & Expo is an extremely valuable event to our members, stakeholders and the mission of Clean Fuels Ohio,” Rachel Ellenberger, Clean Fuels Ohio business development and communications manager, said. “Transitioning to a digital conference is the best way ensure that attendees will still receive valuable content and networking capabilities without having to jeopardize the health and safety of their employees and families.”
The Coalition staff is working diligently to restructure the MWGT agenda and fees for both exhibitors and attendees. More information will be available in the coming weeks. Please reach out to Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 614-884-7336 ext. 310 if you have any questions.
