It has become an annual tradition that September at FIBARO brings us the biggest event of our smart home family — this is the time when our Partners from all over the world visit Poland. This year’s edition of FIBARO Adventure 2019 took place in Poznań — the birthplace of FIBARO. It is the place where it all began. 9 years ago, starting as a company established in a garage, which today is listed as one of smart home leaders and without doubts has its solutions spread worldwide, gaining recognition of more and more new customers. This is all thanks to our guests.
Welcome to FIBARO’s home, here’s a surprise for you
The meeting with the business partners had begun with a speech by Krzysztof Banasiak, Member of the Management Board at FIBARO, who introduced the crucial company trends related to the upcoming changes in the company’s life. Immediately after that, Massimo Riggio, CMO of Nice Group emphasised the importance of the good cooperation of all Partners in the development of the Nice Group.
The first evening was honored by an inspirational lecture by Agnieszka Szóstek, a CX expert who has worked with the biggest brands. An hour meeting with Agnieszka had a huge impact on all listeners.
Come with us, let’s do something amazing
Saturday morning brought us another groundbreaking experience — Customer Experience workshops led by Agnieszka Szóstek were full of surprises. FIBARO partners from all over the world worked in spirits over design thinking methodology to create the best solution that would suit the needs of an individual. Three hours passed very quickly, the buzz, laughter and ideas were a confirmation that thinking from the user’s perspective has enormous potential for developing new possibilities of FIBARO.
Make yourself at home
After intensive workshops, it was time for a trip to FIBARO Technology Park. Visitors were able to see the new FIBARO headquarters for the first time — this is where the most important decisions are made. FIBARO Technology Park is also the place where products are developed, which are delivered across the world. A tour through the manufacturing plant and confrontation with some of experts was the biggest surprise for the guests.
Factory Tour had ended with a very special treat — participants could take a closer look and participate in Flood Sensor manufacturing process. During this mini task, guests soldered individual components themselves, and at the very end the device they’d manufactured was tested. It was quite a stressful moment to find out if the Flood Sensor will work or not… Smile on your face says one thing — it worked! 🙂
A visit to FIBARO Technology Park was also an opportunity to meet with representatives of the R&D department. Our guests were one of the first to see the brand new TRAINING CENTER spot. A place where trainings for trainers and installers are performed. It was also a great time to present a completely new approach to FIBARO training programs.
The best is yet to come…
The last day was marked by the long awaited smart home product premieres. This a perfect time to have a chat with FIBARO experts involved in product and software development. It was a time of understanding and planning activities for the upcoming months and the best time of getting to know each other. Some of the presentations were classified — this is why we can’t show any photos, but we can promise one thing — 2020 will start with a very strong accent towards the entire smart home industry. 🙂
Evening dinner meetings were an opportunity to talk about cooperation and ideas for the future in a less official atmosphere. The dinner closing this year’s edition of FIBARO Adventure took place at the beautiful Młyńska 12 which everyone enjoyed a lot. We are convinced that our guests have returned to their homes with their heads full of new ideas and ready to face next challenges hand in hand with FIBARO.
Thank you again and see you next year!
FIBARO Team 🙂
