Getting Ready for Hannover Messe 2018
What are the business do-s and don’t-s in Germany, the business etiquette and ways to interact with and attract potential partners and investors? These and similar topics revealing the German business culture were under discussion led by Martin Reinfeldt, international expert specialised in organisational development, at an “enlightening” training organised by SMEDA for the Armenian Delegation prior to heading to Hannover Messe 2018. The training and a tailored marketing package (a film, booklet, pitch deck, posters and flyers, etc.) will ensure that the Armenian delegations consisting of precision Engineering and IoT companies, namely the RAFA Solutions (http://rafasolutions.com/), Bitlis-MEN (www.bitlismen.com), Volterman Inc. (www.volterman.com) and Grovf (www.grovf.com), and several representatives of Free Economic Zones and the Ministry of Economic Development and Investments of Armenia, are efficiently presented at the trade, ready to pitch, establish business connections and cooperation, getting the utmost benefits offered through this opportunity.
