VAR Partner Day 2021

Partnering Up in Vienna

Our Siemens Value Added Reseller (VAR) Partner Day for Central Eastern Europe moves to another location every year. This year's conference took place at the Tech Gate office tower in Vienna, Austria. Managers, planners and engineers from Siemens partners throughout the region attended our event, visited the portfolio exhibition and participated in the lively discussions about Siemens products and solutions for protection, monitoring, control and automation.

Since we cancelled our 2020 event due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we did our very best to ensure a safe and successful event this year. Our COVID-19 prevention concept can be found here.

During the 8th annual partner day various Siemens experts and partners provided our guests with insightful presentations and an expert forum about the challenges of distribution automation.

Next to the presentations, an accompanying exhibition of the Siemens portfolio as well as the opportunity to engage with experts were part of the agenda. The participants also had the opportunity to visit the Siemens Campus Microgrid, an intelligent system for the optimization of the electricity and heating demand on the company’s premises in the Viennese district of Floridsdorf.
