DISTREE Russia 2019 will once again give consumer tech, consumer electronics and IT brands from around the world a unique opportunity to hold pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings with senior channel executives from the country’s top retailers and e-tailers in one place at one time.

More than 80 retail executives, representing 50-plus top Russian retailers and e-tailers have already confirmed their attendance at DISTREE Russia as they seek to identify new brands to work with and meet existing suppliers. Top retailers already confirmed for DISTREE Russia include Auchan, Digital World, Goodcom, Maximus, MTS, M.Video-Eldorado, Nix, On No and Wildberries, with more signing up to attend each week.

Frederic Simard, Event Director at DISTREE Russia, said: “The strong support from Russian retailers and e-tailers underlines the importance of DISTREE Russia as a sourcing platform for the national retail channel. All retail attendees have been pre-qualified by our audience team, giving exhibitors a powerful platform to make valuable new contacts and expand their retail channel reach.”

The 16th annual DISTREE Russia will take place in Moscow on May 29th to May 31st, 2019. The country’s leading hosted buyer channel event offers technology brands and distributors access to Russia leading retailers, e-tailers and resellers in one place at one time. DISTREE Russia 2019 will take place in the luxurious surroundings of the Areal Congress Hotel.

Simard added: “DISTREE Russia offers a focused event format designed to accelerate in-country sales for exhibitors and open up new business opportunities for our retail attendees. The Russian retail channel continues to evolve quickly with the emergence of omnichannel business models and an increased role for online marketplaces and e-tailers.”

Research house GfK’s most recent TEMAX analysis of the ICT, telecoms and consumer electronics market in Russia indicates that the total market value hit US$8.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2018 – up 16.3% year-on-year*. Total sales in Russia for calendar 2018 hit US$25.8 billion – up 16.6% year-on-year. GfK is an Event Partner for DISTREE Russia and will deliver a series of presentations and workshops focused on the latest Russian market trends.

With a population of 144 million, Russia represents a significant market opportunity to consumer tech, consumer electronics and IT brands. Brands exhibiting at DISTREE Russia have the opportunity to research retail attendees in advance of the event and pre-schedule one-on-one meetings in specific time slots with key decision makers from retailers, e-tailers and marketplaces. Now in its 16th year, DISTREE Russia has helped hundreds of brands launch, build or manage their retail channels within Russia.

“For international brands keen to grow their channels in Russia, DISTREE Russia offers a quick and highly efficient networking and business development platform that outperforms a traditional trade show in terms of results,” continued Simard. “Our private event format and our total commitment to audience quality means that exhibitors meet top decision makers and quickly accelerate their sales.”

While online sales continue to grow in Russia, the importance of brand visibility within physical retail stores remains critical to a vendor’s success. Retail giant M.Video-Eldorado Group, which now operates 950-plus stores, recently highlighted the fact that while 70% of its customers used the internet at some stage of choosing products, 95% of all transactions were still completed offline.
