Work has already started on finalising plans for the new Novosibirsk business centre, which will have internal partitions made from Pilkington Pyrostop™ classified EI-60 following an agreement made at the exhibition.
"World of Glass went very well for us," said Viktor Frank, technical advisory manager for Pilkington Fire Products. "We held several live demonstrations of fire-resistant glass each day, which attracted a great deal of attention." Pilkington also held seminars on Pilkington Eclipse Advantage™ solar-e glass and Pilkington Activ™ self-cleaning glass, as well as on the fire-resistant products. Special areas of the Pilkington stand were dedicated to these products and to the start-up of RM1.
The four-day exhibition was held at the Moscow Exhibition Centre and attracted visitors from right across the Russian regions and the CIS countries. The Pilkington stand earned two diplomas from the Russian Union of Architects - one for Architectural Benefits and Value of the featured products and a second for High Artistic Level of the stand.
Nearly 100 existing customers called in and a similar number of new, potential customers also introduced themselves to the Pilkington team. "Many customers commented that our stand this year was more attractive and offered more information than our previous stands," said commercial director Vlad Mischenko. "We gained a lot of prospective contacts and learned a lot about the market as well as delivering necessary messages to the customers."
