COFES has historically focused on creating an environment where the strength of our community takes precedence over our individual needs to sell, and where c-level executives can openly discuss the important issues facing business today. COFES Russia Seminar will bring together senior executives from firms in manufacturing, construction, and design to discuss innovation in the face of the current economic situation both globally and within Russia and the CIS.

Isicad, the biennial forum organized by LEDAS Ltd., is a recognizable brand for the Russian IT-community. Isicad-2010 is the fourth event in the line and will take place in Moscow in September 14, 2010 under the theme "CAD and PLM as tools of innovative economics".

Alexander Tasev, Regional Sales Director, Autodesk Russia and CIS, said: "Autodesk is known as an active participant and sponsor of COFES conferences in Arizona, USA. The COFES events remarkably contribute to the determining and refinement of the priorities and direction of CAD technology, industry, and business. I believe that closer contacts of COFES - Cyon Research and the Russian market with its huge potential will be very useful for all involved participants."
