Information seminars with Russian Design Institutes
Schneider Electric has developed a seminar program aimed at enabling Russian design institutes to better know and understand the Company's offerings. Design organizations play a crucial role in the field of electrical equipment, and in developing and upgrading contracting projects across Russia.
"These institutes guarantee proper operation and safety of the equipment installed," explained Guy Dufraisse, CIS and Baltic Countries Manager. “It is important to familiarize them with Schneider Electric's offer and to develop partnerships”.
The program was launched in Moscow on May 24-25 with a pilot seminar for local design organizations. This Schneider Electric's initiative raised considerable interest, since such events have not been very common for Russia. Over 60 organizations represented by 200 people participated in the first seminar. The seminar enabled Schneider Electric to present its comprehensive product range and make new business contacts.
