e-shape shakes the EuroGEO Workshop 2022 by blazing new trails for the EO market

e-shape, as a flagship European project, is in the frontline at this year’s edition of EuroGEO Workshop 2022 held in Athens, Greece, from 7th-9th December 2022.

With a united message and motto “Blazing new trails for the EO market” that encapsulates and conveys the project’s entire mission for the way forward, the e-shape consortium’s prevailing presence will give prominence in the e-shape legacy by showcasing successful results, new services, how the project contributes to the SDGs targets etc.

The communications team of e-shape, in order to propel this endeavor, organized a dedicated communication social media pre and main campaign, created targeted e-banners and designed impactful, fit for purpose, compelling give-away gifts for the conference. Furthermore, a roll-up banner along with the new and premium brochures and the rececently developed video showcasing the project in the registration desk of the event, will elevate the e-shape impact.

It is worth mentioning that during this 3-day workshop, the majority of the topics to be discussed deal directly or indirectly with sustainability and e-shape project, with its 37 pilots in 7 showcases, contributes to the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals by proposing solutions to combat poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation and to support prosperity, peace and justice.
