JAS Worldwide recently hosted its JAS "After Hours" networking event following the Transport Logistic Munich on 10 May 2023, providing a unique opportunity for their customers to build relationships and network in a more personal setting.

Over 200 attendees were able to relax, socialize, and enjoy an evening of cocktails and conversations. The event provided a more informal setting for customers to connect with JAS representatives, vendors, and other customers in attendance.

"Our goal was to offer our customers a unique networking experience," explained Jennifer Jinadu-Wright, Vice President, Global Marketing. "Everyone is used to coming to a trade show and having meetings at the booth. One thing we have learned over the last few years is the importance of human connections. So we thought, why don't we do something different and allow our customers to connect with us in a more intimate setting and meet other people at JAS."

JAS believes that building strong relationships with its customers is key to its success. The JAS After Hours event was designed to provide an opportunity to take customer relationships to the next level. "At JAS, we firmly believe that being customer-centric goes beyond mere transactions and involves building personal connections with our customers, and JAS After Hours is a clear testament to our commitment to doing so," said Manuele Mazzacurati, EVP Global Sales & Marketing. "We understand that our customers are more than just clients, and are committed to developing meaningful relationships, which drives our mutual success."
