Russian Corporate Telecom Regatta, RCTR, took place on April 20-27, 2013 in Croatia.
Gars Telecom’s yacht came in sixth in the competition behind a united team of First Service/ECI/Exepto and representatives of Intelcom-Connect, Nauka-Svyaz, Satel and Telecombirzha.
Following the words of Michael Sergeev, Marketing director Gars Telecom, the awards are not the most important factor that ignited the company to participate in the event. “As a result of the competition, we managed to receive a significant marketing support: broad media coverage, radio airings, gigabytes of quality photo and video content that we are going to imply for marketing, advertising, and recruitment ends,” relates Michael.
Pavel Gorenkov, CEO Gars Telecom, notes that both organizers and participants put a major focus on the business part of the event, but not in too formalized and traditional way. Instead of ordinary speeches and presentations, the team opted for free-flow networking and opinion sharing among top managers of Russian IT industry.
Thanks to the regatta, Gars Telcom won new contracts. From now on, the HP distributor Satel and data center specialized Stack Telecom has joined the team of Gars Telecom’s partners and contractors. Consequently, Gars Telecom is looking to form a joint holding that will comprise the carriers – participants of the regatta – and launch cooperation projects, such as network building and, if planning further, network consolidation and conversion to the unified share.
