Optical Media storage specialist Falcon Technologies International (FTI) recently hosted its international customer seminar in the Ritz Carlton Al Wadi Hotel, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, from April 4th – 6th 2017. The seminar, which was attended by approximately 50 delegates who travelled from diverse locations such as France, Germany, Japan, USA and the UK, was the third such annual event which gathered together the key global players from the optical media sector together in Ras Al Khaimah to discuss the latest developments, opportunities and challenges present in the industry today.
Speaking at the event Mr. Michael Gutowski, CEO of FTI, said “Our customer seminar is a healthy indicator of the success both FTI and the wider Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah has been enjoying as a result of the vision and business acumen of His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah. Today we have dozens of representatives from some of the leading optical media technology companies worldwide, sharing their ideas, innovations and future plans for the shaping of the industry - all happening here in Ras Al Khaimah. Our seminar represents just one of many points in the impressive economic growth trajectory of our Emirate, and we are extremely positive about what the future holds both for FTI and Ras Al Khaimah as a global business hub”.
The event was supported by RAK Free Trade Zone, who are one of the key Ras Al Khaimah government entities spearheading the economic growth the Emirate has been experiencing in recent years. Mr. Shahram Hashemi, Group Director of Strategy and Investments at RAK Free Trade Zone, presented to the delegates on the flexibility and ease of setting up a business within the Emirate, and the commercial advantages enjoyed by the many thousands of companies who have based their operations in Ras Al Khaimah.
FTI also took the opportunity to give a first screening their brand-new video “The Journey”, which is unique film following the entire start-to-finish production of an optical media disc from the perspective of the disc itself.
Mr. Erwin Heinze, CEO of German digital media distributor Software Partner GmbH with whom FTI have been a key partner for several years via the supply of Premium, Dupli and Medigrade products, commented “Our visit to see FTI’s facilities and enjoy their hospitality in Ras Al Khaimah was a great experience, perfectly organised and executed by FTI’s committed team, and proved to be an excellent forum to both network with and discuss ideas with other key players in the optical media industry, and strengthen our relationship with FTI.”
