DISTREE Russia & CIS to celebrate tenth year at expanded 2013 St. Petersburg event

by Stuart Wilson, Friday 15 March 2013

DISTREE Russia & CIS will take place for the tenth year in a row in 2013. This year’s DISTREE Russia & CIS, which takes place from June 25-27th at the Pulkovskaya Radisson, St. Petersburg, will once again unite senior executives from ICT and consumer electronics (CE) brands with the region’s most influential channel partners.The event gathers hundreds of senior executives from vendors, distributors, retailers and resellers in one place at one time.

Frederic Simard, President and Co-Founder at DISTREE Events, commented: “Ten years is a real achievement for DISTREE Russia & CIS. Our knowledge of the market has increased year-on-year and we remain committed to helping brands launch, build or manage their channels within the fast-growing Russia & CIS markets.”

“We appreciate the ongoing support from vendors, distributors, retailers and resellers operating in Russia & CIS,” Simard added. “We have seen both the market and our event grow and mature together during the last decade. The Russian market for ICT and CE products was worth more than US$40 billion in 2012, according to the latest data from GfK. More than 100 vendors are set to participate in DISTREE Russia & CIS 2013 to build channel sales in this fast-growing region.”

DISTREE Russia & CIS now attracts more than 600 senior executives each year and is completely focused on business-to-business interaction between vendors, distributors, retailers and resellers. DISTREE Russia & CIS 2013 takes place at Pulkovskaya Radisson in St. Petersburg, Russia. DISTREE Russia & CIS is a business-focused event, offering ICT and CE vendors and distributors the opportunity to interact with buyers from leading retailers and resellers from across the region.

DISTREE Russia & CIS is far removed from a traditional trade show or exhibition. Using a unique format - developed by DISTREE Events and deployed in fast-growing emerging markets around the world - the three-day event allows each delegate to pre-schedule a personal agenda of one-on-one meetings based on their precise business needs.

Simard continued: “DISTREE Russia & CIS lets attendees achieve in three days what would otherwise take three months. It has become a ‘must attend’ event for senior executives involved in the ICT and CE channel in the Russia & CIS region.”

Delegates have the chance to attend keynote speeches and panel discussions, participate in interactive workshop sessions, attend one-on-one meetings, network with their peers and access the latest research on retail trends in the region. Content partners for this year’s event include GfK and Ocean Solutions. Evening functions, new product showcases and industry awards offer participants the widest possible range of business benefits.

More than 2200 pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings took place at the most recent DISTREE Russia & CIS. With hundreds of brands set to participate in DISTREE Russia & CIS 2013, this number is expected to increase further at the 2013 event.

“Russian channel structures are maturing fast and this is a critical time for all vendors in terms of defining a strategy that positions them correctly for growth in the market,” added Simard. “DISTREE Russia & CIS is the perfect platform for all brands to increase their understanding of the regional market.”

“This year’s event will celebrate the development of the Russia & CIS channel during the last decade. We look forward to welcoming all delegates to the tenth anniversary DISTREE Russia & CIS event in stunning St. Petersburg,” Simard concluded.


DISTREE Russia & CIS is the region’s premier annual channel event for vendors looking to manage, build or launch channels in this strategically important market. Leading retailers, resellers and distributors from across Russia & CIS attend the event, allowing vendors to accelerate their channel development and drive business success across Russia & CIS.

DISTREE Russia & CIS operates a unique business model based on an ‘invitation only’ event format, offering a compelling mix of pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings, keynotes, awards and networking opportunities for vendors and channel executives operating in the Russia & CIS region.
