14/09/2020 /  Virtual Dubai WoodShow 2020

We all had to get accustomed to the current changes in the world. Dubai WoodShow 2020, which was due to be held in March this year, is not an exception. Since the show was postponed a number of times due to COVID-19, the organisers decided to employ technology and organise the show virtually. This was the first virtual show in the world.

Similarly to a physical one, in a virtual environment the participants each had their own stand and the visitors were able to interact with their current and potential suppliers and attend conferences. Although this is an entirely new concept and its efficiency is yet to be revealed, the stand of the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai was seen by over 400 visitors.

A virtual format of the show allowed safe interaction with customers and also helped boosting business and meet potential clients around the world. This year’s Dubai WoodShow incorporated a large-scale marketing campaign for industry leaders and professionals involving over 70 prospective countries.

Dubai WoodShow 2021 is scheduled to be held on March 8–10th. It will be a combination of virtual and physical experience. The participants will be able to attend the show both physically and virtually (from higher-risk countries). The organisers of the show are attempting to create platforms where business can be conducted in a safe manner and the partners, and participants are able to enjoy the added value.

As every year, on the 1st of September, the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai steps in to congratulate the children of the company’s employees on the beginning of a new school year.

The charity and support fund of Juodeliai & Co annually awards the children of the company’s employees (students in grades 5 to 12) with the highest academic performance in the previous school year. This year we indeed have something to be proud of and enjoy together: four children graduated the school with an average of 9–9.49 and as many as five children graduated with an average of 9.5–10.

More than 170 children of the company’s employees will be congratulated this year. We wish everyone a successful school year and we hope that next year the number of children with the highest academic results will double.

14/08/2020 /  UAB Juodeliai annual event

This year, a bit later than usual, the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai held its annual event for the company’s administration staff. After the Director General presented the company’s annual report, the company employees participated in team-building exercises and were given a chance to test their stamina, patience, and ability to take an accurate shot on a golf course, to reveal their creativity during a photography class and practice exercise and enjoy excellent pictures as a result. The photographs they took are now displayed on the walls of the administration office in Marijampolė. UAB Juodeliai employees have once again proved that a team is a powerful force able to target any goals.
