Russec 2008 at Oakley Court Windsor, UKOakley Court in Windsor, UK, recently played host to a hugely successful inaugural Russec, an end-user forum dedicated to addressing the future security needs of Russia's largest companies. 

The carefully qualified Russian delegates, who included representatives from Lukoil, Russian Railways and Nizhnekamskneftekhim, enjoyed one-on-one meetings with representatives from top European security providers with a view to developing mutually beneficial business relationships.  The event was hosted jointly by Notting Hill Media Limited (publishers of SourceSecurity.com, Europe's largest security publication) and Groteck, Russia's leading security media organisation.

"It was great to be involved in the inaugural Russec," said Udo Schneider of Verint.  "The event was very well organised and hosted in a fantastic environment.  It was extremely useful that the delegates' details and their expectations had been sent prior to the event so we could prepare accordingly for each meeting.  It allowed very fruitful discussions with the delegates and created a quality event."

"We were very impressed by the quality of the format and of the delegates," said Boris Gordon of Russian Railways.   "Russec provided a unique and innovative forum for discussing real and present security challenges with companies who are obviously very experienced in providing complex security solutions."

By general consensus, the event was immensely useful to both suppliers and end-users alike, and all parties left eager to engage further.

Mikhail Kalinin of Lukoil noted: "The high quality arrangement and organization of the event met all expectations and perfectly matched our requirements.  Presentations were highly constructive and we got important value propositions on modern innovative developments.  We have made excellent introductory contacts from meetings and have already had further discussions with some of them."

"Russec is an excellent venue for HID Global to further strengthen our relationship with Russian end-users," observed Jaroslav Barton, sales manager for HID Global.  "This event not only allows HID to demonstrate new technology, but also provides us with an opportunity to meet with the end-users driving innovations for physical and logical access control and secure identity within the region."

Says Tony Saville of Notting Hill Media: "We're delighted with the success which Russec has enjoyed from all sides."

The event is scheduled to recur in early 2009, and delegate invitations are already highly sought.
