Milestone event

“The 15th anniversary of DISTREE Russia is an important milestone for us,” Simard added. “It demonstrates our long-term commitment to the Russian market and the strength of our in-country relationships with vendors, distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers. DISTREE Russia provides the most cost-effective event platform for brands looking to launch, build or manage their routes-to-market across the country.”

In addition to one-on-one meetings, DISTREE Russia delegates can access a conference programme focused on Russian market trends.
