Technology & innovation meets culture: 4th International Fronius Sales Partner Meeting in Linz
Linz (A), 2009 European Capital of Culture, was the backdrop for this year's international sales partner conference for the Solar Electronics division: approx. 80 participants from 47 partner companies from 15 countries enjoyed a two-day program filled with information as well as entertainment.
In accordance with the slogan "technology & innovation meets culture," Fronius presented its guest's with all that's new from the Solar Electronics division and the company. After the "official" informative part of the conference, a diversified program of leisure activities provided fun and excitement for participants.
Early-arriving guests had the opportunity to take a factory tour of the Fronius Sattledt location the day before the event. The meeting officially started in the Linz Bergschlössl with exclusive presentations of new products. Fronius project managers answered questions from the interested audience and also made themselves available for expert discussions.
After a big lunch, the group spent the afternoon in the impressive virtual world of the new Ars Electronica Center.
The group dinner in the pleasant ambiance of the Pöstlingberg Schlössl offered a magnificent view of Linz at night along with many culinary delicacies.
The appealing leisure activities available on the second day of the conference included a brewery tour as well as sleigh rides and sledding in the wonderful winter landscape, and ended with a cozy finale in an informal setting.
The positive feedback from participants made the event a great success and once again underscores even more the importance of personal contacts and networking.
