In tour with Liverpool FC or summit for partners 2015

Friday, August 14th, 2015

For several years, we have been gathering key partners from Malaysia (in Singapore, by the way) and holding a summit. You ask, why? Let’s say, it is quite important to have good relations with partners on Forex. Of course, there is e-mail, skype, and video conferences, but live communication is still significant in the 21st century.

Every time, summits were carried out in a friendly but business atmosphere. However, they lacked something – until we became partners of Liverpool FC. We are not just partners but sponsors of the tour that was finished in Malaysia thanks to its wide popularity in the country. At first, there was a summit and a football game, and then we decided to combine! What is more, strangely enough, the summit for Malaysian partners took place in Malaysia for the first time.

We spent three days in Malaysia and two days, for the way there and back again. At 08:00 a.m. July 22, we arrived in Kuala Lumpur and immediately started working according to our extremely tight schedule and fighting with jet lag. Almost in an hour, we were already completing final arrangements. Then we headed towards hospitable hotel Saujana where our summit was held and the Liverpool team stayed. But the summit was to begin only the next day and we went making a commercial clip at first. Our clip’s stars Simon Mignolet, one of the world’s famous goalkeepers, and talented Portuguese Joao Teixeira dealt with their parts very well. The videos are still in progress but we can unveil that one of them is devoted to another grand occasion in Malaysia featuring Liverpool FC as well.

Next day, the main event – the summit – began. After a short speech, InstaForex Development Director Pavel Shkapenko didn’t hurry to leave the stage as he had to play an unusual for him role of a moderator for the speech of Liverpool FC legend Robbie Fowler!

You wonder how did he get into the financial summit? We have been working in sports marketing for 5 years and we understand how much we can learn from famous sportsmen. Robbie preferred an interactive lecture to a boring speech and for 50 minutes was answering various questions of the guests who wanted to know his secret of success. He coped with this ‘interrogation’ greatly and then took part in a massive photo shoot.

After it, Robbie left the conference and we got back to work…

And work…

And even more work!

In the last photo you can see that it was not easy to keep up such a pace, but we were ready for it. Thus, combining business and pleasure, we went to an open training of Liverpool FC. Moreover, we organized a competition and four winners took part in the photo session with the first-string squad.

The great four also went to a football match in a company of the team and police escort. Other participants, including the Russian staff, got stuck in a severe traffic jam.

The training was a real performance. In fact, it was a mini-match (with a 30-minute times) between the Liverpool and Malaysian Super League teams. It is said that games between strong and weak teams are the best for young footballers to learn from.  It was a match of this kind: the Liverpool team scored as many goals as they liked and the final score was 7:00.

The first part of the second and last day was devoted to business while the afternoon consisted of a festive cocktail party and a game between Liverpool FC and Malaysia’s team. It was difficult to decide which team to support: all summit participants supported both their compatriots and the Reds.

That is why they tied: the fast goal scored by the Malays was returned by a brilliant Adam Lallana’s goal. In fact, we did not have enough time to watch the game up to the end as we had to go the airport. This was the only disadvantage of our trip.

The business part of the summit gave us a whole myriad of business ideas which we have already started to put into action with our Malaysian colleagues. At the same time, all evening events were also very impressive. Any business is based on both products and shared emotions.  At the summit, each of us experienced overwhelming feelings.

InstaForex – official partner of Dragon Raсing
In summer 2015, InstaForex became the official partner of the Dragon Racing Team – one of the leaders in the FIA Formula E Championship, a global auto racing series for electric vehicles.
Formula E is the latest development in motor sports which embodies progress, cutting-edge technologies and eco-friendly approach. Futuristic design and electric motors reflect the contemporary vision of car racing and make the future possible today.
These qualities of Formula-E have attracted the attention of InstaForex which has been a technological pioneer from the moment of its establishment, introducing innovations and new developments in the brokerage market.
That is the main reason why InstaForex has chosen to cooperate with the young and ambitious Dragon Racing Team. In May 2007, the team made its debut in the IndyCar series, the most prestigious auto racing championship in the US. In 2014, Jay Penske, a media entrepreneur and the founder of Dragon Racing, decided to focus on Formula E. The team’s first big success came with the first racing season and Jerome D’Ambrosio’s victory in Berlin. Only two weeks later, the car running InstaForex branding took part in the Formula E Moscow debut.
The partnership with Dragon Racing continues the tradition that started in 2011 when the company became the title sponsor of InstaForex Loprais Team, the participant of the international Dakar Rally and winner of the Silk Way Rally 2011. In 2013, InstaForex became the official partner of Marussia F1 Team, the participant of the elite Formula 1 racing series. Cooperation with Dragon Racing is the logical continuation of the previous course.

Roman Cepelev, the Strategic Development Director at InstaForex:
“The whole concept of electric car racing gives a vision of the future of this industry. InstaForex has always used the latest technologies and has always been among the pioneers, just like Dragon Racing. Therefore we believe this partnership will provide the right synergy for both parties”

About Dragon Racing Team:

Dragon Racing was founded by top managers of Seagate Technologies in 2006. The team began its racing career as Luczo Dragon Racing. In 2009, the team completed its first season in the IndyCar series winning the Rookie of the year award.
Among other strategic partners of the Dragon Racing Team there were at different times McAfee, Microsoft, TrueCar and Chevrolet. The team is headquartered in Los Angeles while its facilities are based in the Donington Park Racing Circuit, UK.

Dakar 2015: going after new victory on new truck

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014
The 2015 Dakar rally is a real strength test both for drivers and vehicles. It will run across Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia. The rally kicks off January 4, 2015 in Buenos Aires with its first stage being a warm-up for all participants, including InstaForex Loprais Team.
The crews will face first serious tests during the 2nd stage, where they will have to go through the heart of Argentina – breathtaking special stages through Villa Carlos Paz, San Juan, and Chilecito. The team of Ales Loprais will fight for the title of the best racing team on a new Dutch MAN truck that was prepared specifically for this rally.
The teams will move through clay soils, mountain peaks, and deep canyons on their way to the first bivouac. That will be the point where the crews to cross the border with Chile will be decided. The MAN truck of Loprais’ team is equipped with a powerful Gyrtech engine by Buggyra Dakar Forces, which is strong enough to cope with both a mountain pass of Paso San Francisco and sands of the Atacama.
The first half of the Dakar will end in Iquique, where hundreds of fans will wait for the racers. However, it is clear that not all crews will reach the Dakar’s golden middle. The trucks will have to overcome a twice longer sandy area and somebody is sure to get stuck in dunes. The team’s leader Ales Loprais has all chances to show his skills and reach the finish line in Buenos Aires. The final special stage is known for its fast tracks so Ales will need to be extremely careful.
There’s little time left before the world’s main rallying event and the caravan of InstaForex Loprais Team led by the brand-new MAN is halfway to Argentina. There’s a 9,295-kilometer two-week marathon along the South America’s harshest terrain. Stay with us and keep abreast of the latest news from the 2015 Dakar.
