Automa, Alps & Amazing cheese! BGS in Switzerland! In October, we hosted our first-rate digital AUTOMA Congress in beautiful Zurich. We walked around the city, chatted, laughed, enjoyed the views of the snowy Alps and, of course, tasted delicious national cuisine. The favorite of the whole team was Raclette cheese: a classic Swiss cheese that is first melted and then scraped directly to your plate served with potatoes, greens and vegetables! Switzerland obtained our hearts by its beauty and tranquility. The Congress was a great success - the guests' feedbacks were the best! Thanks
We are always for initiative and innovation, therefore every year we select the TOP-20 of the best-implemented projects that have brought something new and useful to the company.
This year, a holiday for the winners of the TOP-20 was held in the middle of the summer on the most beautiful lake in the world - Turgoyak. We gathered the guys through the cities and distances to arrange for them 3 positive days of rest. We were lucky with the weather: we were able to swim, sunbathe and fill the Instagram with sunny photos. And also, we took part in time-management and planning trainings, practiced yoga outdoors, “escaped” from an uninhabited island, and met a sunset by the fire with a guitar and fried marshmallows.
MOGC in Copenhagen
Hygge - found! BGS in Copenhagen! As the happy Danes say, "There is no bad weather, there are bad clothes," so we dressed warmly and, despite all the winds, walked along the streets and the old channels. We realized what the Danish Hygge is - we were so cold that we enjoyed such simple things as a couple of minutes of the sunshine and hot coffee;) Copenhagen was remembered by the millions of cyclists, the charming houses and a magical atmosphere, where Andersen's fairy tales come to life. The first MOGC Congress ended with a cozy gala dinner with a fire show, the happy guests and the beautiful jazz band songs. The excellent Congress once again showed what a strong team we are, and the desire of the delegates to come to us again inspired us for the new plans!
They inspire the team to set new goals, learn more, become better, they are our talented and beloved - BGS Leaders. Every year, all managers from all our offices gather in one place to share experiences and learn new things. This year we spent three warmest, most productive summer days outside the city in a lake house! Trainings made our leaders even wiser, extreme activities made them even stronger, and teambuilding made them even more united. We laughed a lot, discussed dreams and our plans, which will certainly be a reality.
EPOCH IN ROME
“All roads lead to Rome,” we thought, and chose this city for the first EPOCH. Rome met us with rain, but for the breathtaking views of the Colosseum, we were ready to get wet. We even managed to visit another capital ... the Vatican! We were inspired by Roman history and kept the Сongress with gladiatorial calm and fortitude. Italian pizza and the first EPOCH will stay forever in our hearts!
LNG in Barcelona
We love BGS. We love Barcelona! Our 3-rd LNG Congress passed in sunny Barcelona. Food, architecture, people and culture - all this made us fall in love with Barcelona forever. In the first days, we explored the wind-streets of this magic city, remembering to take photos on the way and refresh ourselves with paella. ;) This gave us the forth to spend one more successful Congress where gala dinner in the real Spanish castle became the "icing on the cake"! The final day of the travel we spent on the seaside, enjoying the sunset above the Spanish horizon. We took with ourselves in the suitcases the fridge magnets with the masterpieces of Gaudi, rebooking and pride for the executed work! Thanks to Barcelona!
Teambuilding, nature, extreme and battle. Just words, you may say, but for BGS team these are the components of one of the best summer weekends.
All three offices of our company from different cities gathered in one of the picturesque places of our region - the ski resort "Sunny Valley". Yes, yes, and in the summer people also can rest there, especially in such a cool company! Two days flew by in one breath: we had time to inspire by nature, tempered willpower in a rope park and of course did not forget who we are by vocation – professional negotiators! Easily our usual negotiations with high-ranking officials turned into a verbal battle between the employees. You must see it to believe, cause all words can not convey all the soulfulness, unity and strength of our great team, which everyone felt on the #BGSpicnic.
PRC Europe in Hamburg
"If summer does not go to us, we are going to summer" - our guys said and flew to our second home, Germany. Once again, they enjoyed the good weather of Hamburg, strolled along the crowded streets, enjoyed the local nature and held the PRC Europe. We are full of emotions after that trip, cause every event is one more tick in our history. Guys, it was really cool! Keep it up!
Business trip to Tokyo
Best for the best! Masha and Nastya were the best through the year and went to the most grandiose event in the oil and gas sector - Gastech! A pleasant bonus was that it took place in picturesque Tokyo. Our girls talked to the heads of the largest companies, exchanged contacts, closed some sponsors for our upcoming events and enjoyed the local culture.
Business trip to Hamburg
BGS team went to Hamburg in November 2016 to lead the 2nd International LNG Congress. The turn-on before the event smoothly transformed into satisfaction. Delegates and speakers said many thanks to our team and left a positive feedback. Arguably, this is the best quality indicator of our work, because if the event provided benefits to its participants, it means that we met a target. And afterwards we let ourselves to relax and feel the Christmas spirit on holiday fair, tasting hot mulled wine and buying a lot of souvenirs.
Business trip to Nice
The recipe of an outstanding event is happy and rested team. That is why our french tour had started from the journey to Monaco and smoothly shifted to sunny Nice. The BGS Solar Summit took place right in this super beautiful city in the south coast of France. The leaders of solar industry were invited to attend this event: people from Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East and the USA. The main focus for us in working with participants is an organization of business face-to-face meetings between companies’ representatives. We build the right atmosphere and as a result we support closing deals on multinational level.
Business trip to London
London is an international business centre. We chose the capital of England as an the most appropriate city for the 1st LNG Congress. We felt serious responsibility: our goal was to lead the first event of a new project for companies working with liquid natural gas. Many organizations invite the same speakers and their reports travel throughout the events during the whole season. We decided to make a unique event and created such a programme where the industry representatives could hear interesting speakers with up-to-the-minute themes, that had never announced anywhere before. And we also lived out Nick’s dream of drinking a pint of beer with Manchester United fans.
Business trip to Dubai
One day Maria outstripped the summer target. We were so happy for her results and sent her to Dubai on vacation with a kind request to attend the event of our competitor - the popular exhibition in solar energy - Intersolar. There are a lot of events in the world: some of the are too general, some of them are too specific. Participating in our competitors’ events gives us an understanding where we want to go in the future and make our events balanced and focused on the key points. Intersolar gave us a lot of interesting acquaintances, meaningful contacts and positive communication with industry key players. Maria also didn’t waste her time and came back with 3 registrations.
Business trip to Singapore
Travelling to South East Asia gives an opportunity not only to change time zone and hemisphere, but also to have a look at the very different from ours lifestyle. Singapore gave us a chance to visit the biggest and the most wide known industrial event - Gastech. The exhibition impressed with its level and sophisticated organization. And Singapore captivated us with its tropical climate, contemporary architecture of legendary Marina Bay and crazy local cuisine. This city is beautiful at night and day, plenty of flowers and parks. It inspired us a lot, so that we came back with a long list of ideas and plans for the future events.
Every goal is a challenge. Big or small, easy or hard. No matter how much work has been done, how many people were involved. If your goal is not achieved, everything is in vain. In BGS we care of every goal of every our guest.
