Conference programme 

Manufacturer Day opened the Elektro 2023 conference programme. The Switch to Ours trend zone was dedicated to import substitution and localisation of production in the electrical industry, where samples of domestic equipment, which are analogues of sub-sanctioned electrical equipment, and import substitution solutions were demonstrated.

The discussion on Risks and Opportunities for Domestic Production in the Current Environment was organised by the SME Corporation. The participants told about the main activities of the federal SME support institution, the programmes implemented by the Corporation, and about work with customers.

At the conference on Promising Projects and Directions for the Development of Electrical Machinery and Insulating Materials in the Context of Todays Challenges the attendees discussed various aspects of import substitution as well as innovation activities of Russian participants in the market for electrical machinery and insulating materials.

The industry experts took part in the networking event devoted to Out-of-the-Box Certification Solutions: New Opportunities for the Electrical Business.

The conference programme of the first day ended with an award ceremony for the winners in the 10th edition of the ElektroReklama 2023 competition.

The test session on Effective Purchases aroused keen interest. According to the speakers, the role of procurement as an overall supply chain is very important. The trends in top managers expectations from procurement remain unchanged. These are cost reduction, process simplification, time saving, flexibility, innovation, responsiveness, helping the company grow revenue, risk reduction and social responsibility. The trends that have emerged in the market are aimed at replacing specific items that limits sourcing opportunities.
