Russian Security Challenges Meet European Security Solutions at Russec 2008

Exclusive end-user forum served as an excellent business matching platform for large security product buyers from Russia and pre-qualified, leading suppliers of security & surveillance products and solutions.

London, United Kingdom, June 06, 2008 --( Oakley Court in Windsor, UK, 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,, 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, this international business matching 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.”

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

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