DISTREE Russia & CIS 2013 announces major sponsors

by Stuart Wilson, Thursday 13 June 2013

DISTREE Russia & CIS will take place for the tenth year in a row in 2013. This year’s event is supported by Platinum Sponsor Sony, Gold Sponsors AMD, Dell, S3 and Toshiba, plus Silver Sponsors Blackberry, Formoza, TP-Link and Ulmart. GfK is an official Event Partner and Content Partner at DISTREE Russia & CIS 2013. Additional Content Partners include CONTEXT, ‘Kiki Lab – Ebeltoft Group’, Ocean Solutions and VIA International.

DISTREE Russia & CIS 2013, 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.

Frederic Simard, President and co-founder at DISTREE Events, commented: “We look forward to welcoming all of the event sponsors and expert speakers to this year’s DISTREE Russia & CIS and thank them for their support. Our unique format offers powerful business benefits for all attendees and thousands of pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings will take place at DISTREE Russia & CIS.”

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.

In total, 600-plus ICT and consumer electronics (CE) channel executives are set to attend this year’s DISTREE Russia & CIS. This includes more than 130 senior retail buyers representing 100-plus retail chains operating in the region; senior executives from 70 top resellers, plus close to 300 representatives from vendors and distributors. More than 2,500 pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings are expected to take place between delegates during the next three days.

Simard continued: “Through a compelling combination of one−on−one meetings, keynote speeches, awards, workshops, boardroom sessions and a programme of evening functions, DISTREE Russia & CIS offers delegates unique and powerful insight into the past, present and future challenges and opportunities in the Russia & CIS channel.”

Dr. Rudi Aunkofer, Global Research Director IT, GfK Retail and Technology, will deliver the opening keynote address at this year’s event. Workshop sessions available to delegates at DISTREE Russia & CIS 2013 include:

1. Price & Promotion – hosted by Andrey Seregin, GfK

2. Defining Relevant Channel Strategies – hosted by Igor Snytko, Ocean Solutions

3. Back to Basics: Remembering Channel Economics – hosted by Michael White, VIA International

4. Cross Channel Strategies – hosted by Fabrizio Valente, ‘Kiki Lab - Ebeltoft Group’

5. Predicting Future Winners – hosted by Howard Davies, CONTEXT

This year’s DISTREE Russia & CIS event also includes a special 10th anniversary Gala Dinner on the evening of Wednesday 26th June, hosted by Platinum Sponsor Sony. This special evening function will feature a wide array of entertainment as DISTREE Events celebrates a decade of operations in the Russia & CIS region.

“DISTREE Russia & CIS offers the most efficient and effective event platform for ICT and CE brands looking to launch, build or manage routes-to-market in this fast-growing region,” concluded Simard. “For all delegates, our aim is to ensure a superb return on the time they invest in participating.”
