From 22 – 27 of August our client from Greece came to St. Petersburg, Russia for the business meetings with prospect partners. GloBAS Group helped our customer with all the steps for the business visit, starting from meetings preparations up to the logistics and organizational issues.
Our client is a Greek company with 30 years history, producing high quality marine and industrial sensors (pressure transmitters, temperature transmitters and reed switches for flow level). We have started the partnership back in March 2020, right in the middle of pandemic time. Our task was to research the Russian market opportunities for our customer, to identify and to make the initial discussions with the prospect partners – resellers, dealers, distributors, service companies.
The initial meetings took place online, because of pandemic and only in August, we were excited to host our customer in Saint Petersburg and Moscow. This visit became the first one face-to-face trip after stat of COVID-19.
Our customer stayed half of the time in St. Petersburg and the other in Moscow. Those two are the main business centralized cities. Gladly the weather was good, besides the work, main tourist attractions were visited in free time, like Alexander Theater in St. Petersburg and Red Square in Moscow. A number of pre-scheduled business meetings took places in both cities and most were positive, half of which ended up with future partnership perspectives.
The safety is an important priority, especially during the times like COVID. Our client from Greece been vaccinated, as well as our Project Manager Leyla Abbasova who accompanied him during the trip, and our CEO Irina Voronkina. During the boarder at the airport, were no problems what so ever, since all the legal papers were done earlier with COVID tests.
