Packed programme at DISTREE Russia & CIS

by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 25 June 2013

The main conference programme at DISTREE Russia & CIS begins this evening with a keynote speech from event partner GfK starting at 18:30 in the main auditorium. This is followed by the Live@DISTREE session where Dell and Ulmart will update delegates on their strategy in the region. The evening’s conference programme finishes with the popular ’60 Seconds to Convince’ awards programme.

GfK will deliver a speech entitled ‘The Dawn of a New Demand Cycle’. GfK is characterising 2013 as a year of transition into a new demand cycle. The technology industry - including distributors, retailers and vendors - will face a set of new opportunities, especially in the Russia & CIS region. This keynote will look at the impact of new and emerging technologies such as touch-enabled devices, Windows 8, thin form factors, tablets and smartphones.

Dell’s Live@DISTREE speech, ‘Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) - Capitalising on the New Trend’, is presented by Denis Minov and Alex Beloglintsev. This will be followed by Sergey Fedorinov, CEO at Ulmart, with a speech entitled ‘Ulmart Cybermarket - A Unique Retail Format’.

The ‘60 Seconds to Convince’ awards programme offers vendors the ultimate opportunity to promote their latest products for 2013. Each vendor entering this year’s awards will have a one-minute presentation on stage ensuring maximum exposure. The audience will select the winner using live electronic voting in two separate categories: Product Design & Product Innovation. There will also be a separate award for the Best Presentation.
