In May representatives from Fegime Ukraine visited the Congress of Fegime International.

The Congress took place at the end of May in Nice, France. This event takes place once every two years and collects all the members of the group, which is about 230 companies and their suppliers – both world-renowned and national manufacturers of electrical and lighting products. This year, the congress was attended by 350 people – 250 members of the group and their partners and 75 representatives of suppliers.

Congress passed under the slogan “Driving Global Connectivity”. During the meeting the participants got acquainted with the Fegime strategy 2020+, listened to interesting presentations of invited speakers – Professor Carlo Alberto Carnivale, who collaborates with the Bocconi Business School in Milan, and Professor Jean Vanhogharden from the Business School in Ashridge, UK. The main topics of the speakers were the digitalization of the economy and its impact on the business of wholesale light-electrotechnical companies, their organizational structure and their further cooperation with their clients. In the opinion of the professors who, in addition to science, are engaged in practical activities, in the era of digitalization  business relations between the companies-distributors / wholesalers and their buyers will be built as part of the process of servitization (“servitization”). The term “servitization” should be understood as a combination of product and service sales. As the digitalization progresses, there will be a transition from the purchase and sale of products (finished goods and components) to the sale and purchase of services and big data, which in future will form the basis of business.
