About 30 journalists will participate in this first meeting of “Informing in times of COVID-19” and it will be coordinated from the Clock Building of the Port of Valencia. Given the interest shown by communication professionals in participating in this digital meeting, which has exceeded all expectations, Valenciaport is going to organise a second edition of the event in the coming months.

This digital meeting of communication professionals is part of Valenciaport’s commitment to promoting the city-port relationship, and specifically to highlight society’s ability to meet the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus, during this pandemic, the PAV has organised the campaign #APieDelCañon to recognise the work of the professionals of the logistics and port community who have made it possible for the logistics chain not to stop and for the population not to be left without supplies.

Valenciaport has also promoted the homage exhibition Imágenes Imborrables (Unforgettable Images), which can be visited until the 12th October in the Clock Building of the Port of Valencia, and which shows 200 physical photographs, more than 1,900 of which will be projected on screens and an audiovisual space of videos with testimonies recorded by the teams of À Punt Mèdia.
