2019 Worldwide Meeting

We are thrilled, once again, to announce our ANNUAL WORLDWIDE MEETING for 2019, to be held in Paphos (Pafos), Cyprus, at the five-star ELYSIUM HOTEL, April 7 -10, 2019. We are very much looking forward to another great meeting and sharing this amazing and beautiful location with you.

One of the very best benefits of your membership is our ANNUAL MEETINGS, where we can all come together in one place, at one time, and meet with our partners from all over the World.

Our meeting Co-Sponsor, this year is ACK LOGISTICS of Cyprus.

You may know Mr. Dinos Charalambous, our Globalink Contact. As our Gold Sponsor, they not only have provided valuable assistance, but their support helps lower the price you end up paying for the meeting. This also applies to all our Sponsors, including EXPRESS AIR, USA, MOROCCAN CARGO PARTNERS, Morocco, AVERITT EXPRESS, USA, SEABRIDGE GLOBAL LOGISTICS, Australia. Their support lowers your costs, so be sure to acknowledge them.

The legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, CYPRUS enjoys a warm, sunny, Mediterranean climate moderated by sea breezes. Visitors enjoy the many beaches, but within an hour’s drive can find themselves in the mountains, enjoying the shade of cool herb-and resin-scented cedar woods, villages set amid orchards and peaceful vineyards, as though time stands still here.

We are visiting at one of the very best times, as Cyprus in the springtime is known for its beautiful wildflowers and festivals are held throughout the island.

We will be staying in Paphos (Pafos), which in ancient times was the capital of Cyprus. There are several ancient and historical spots nearby, and Kato Pafos, is designated a UNESCO World Heritage site with remains found there dating back 2000 years.

I highly recommend reading up on Cyprus as its loaded with history, culture and points of interest. I can recommend the DK Eyewitness Travel book on Cyrpus, and there are many other to choose from.

Our formal meetings begin at 9am for the next three days, with presentations and free flowing coffee and tea throughout the day. 

ONE on ONE sessions will start at 10:30am, and will continue until 12:00pm, at which time we will break for lunch. ONE on ONE sessions will resume at 1pm and continue until 5pm each day. Lunch is included each day as part of your meeting package. As with last year, we will continue our policy of members issuing Penalty Cards for members who do not attend their scheduled ONE on ONE meetings. We will share these names with the entire group.

ONE on ONE meetings will be scheduled using our in house scheduling software. In scheduling ONE on ONE meetings, keep in mind the sooner you register for the meeting, the more options you will have to schedule meetings and for others to schedule with you.

ONE on ONE meetings are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Once again, and we hear this every year, for those who wait to the last minute to register, the ONE on ONE  Meeting slots of those you might want to meet with can be filled up, with no openings. Register for the meeting as soon and as early as possible.

We highly recommend you consider bringing at least two representatives from your company to cover that many more ONE on ONE  meetings. We offer a discounted registration rate for additional company members to attend.

SUGGESTED DRESS CODE: For meetings it is suggested you dress business casual. Please no T-shirts in the meeting rooms, but do dress comfortably. 

New Member Orientation

This is for new members only. If you have never been to a Globalink Worldwide Meeting, or if you are a new member, having joined our group since the last meeting, we highly encourage you to attend our NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION.  This meeting is scheduled for April 7, at 4pm, ahead of our opening Cocktail Party.

These are well attended. In the orientation we get a chance to meet each other, and get to know one another before the opening cocktail party.  We also go over a few of the basics as to how Globalink works and how to maximize the return on your Globalink investment.

Please check THE AGENDA for the location.

The Gala Dinner

Our GALA DINNER is scheduled to open with a cocktail party at 7:30pm, on Tuesday, April 9. This includes the cocktail party, a full dinner and professional entertainment, and is another great opportunity to get to know your partners in a fun setting.
