The distinguished panel members and the moderator discussed and covered all the SEA-ME-WE 5 subsea cable related up-dates, special technical and commercial characteristics and the advantages of the multiple-award winning subsea cable system. A huge interest was shown by the people being present at the occasion. This session was used to effectively position our consortium as a prominent leader whilst also demonstrating market expertise.
Organizing this important event by combining several significant marketing communication platforms resulted a very efficient way of promoting the SEA-ME-WE 5 project at ITW 2018. Several new leads and interests were generated for future possible commercial application for all SEA-ME-WE 5 member companies.
