Top consumer tech distributor and retailer executives confirmed for DISTREE APAC 2017

by Stuart Wilson, Wednesday 11 October 2017

DISTREE Asia Pacific (APAC) has announced that more than 100 senior executives and buyers from top consumer tech distributors and retailers are now confirmed to attend this year’s event. As a premium hosted buyer event, DISTREE APAC gives consumer tech brands the opportunity to pre-schedule one-on-one meetings with the region’s most influential channel partners in one place at one time. This year’s DISTREE APAC takes place in Singapore from November 8th to 10th at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel.

Christophe Painvin, Event Director for DISTREE APAC, commented: “We’re delighted with the sign-up rates for DISTREE APAC from distributors that have been invited, which has been even faster than in previous years. From Rashi Peripherals and Redington in India, through to Digiworld from Indonesia, Flora from Bangladesh, and many others, we’re focusing on high quality consumer tech distributors from across Asia.”

“The opportunity for distributors to meet potential new suppliers – as well as existing vendors they already work with - holds tremendous value. It is also a chance for partners to secure distribution and retail rights for brands that are expanding across the fast-growing Asian markets,” he added.

20-plus countries

DISTREE APAC’s channel audience will include delegates from the following markets in South East Asia: Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. SAARC countries of Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will also form part of the delegate base. Oceania-based channel partners from Australia and New Zealand will also receive invites, as will distributors and key retailers from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and China in North-Asia.

Painvin added: “The quantity and quality of channel delegates attending DISTREE APAC continues to improve. This year marks our fifth annual consumer tech channel hosted buyer event in Asia. We have carried out extensive channel research and built a high-quality database of the region’s most influential distributors and retailers to invite.”

“This history and depth of channel knowledge is an asset, but we also understand the importance of updating and enriching the audience database,” he added. “The channel evolves constantly and we work hard to identify new and emerging consumer tech distributors, retailers and e-tailers that offer new approaches and new routes to-market consumer tech brands.”

VIP retailers

A selection of VIP retailers form part of the channel audience that attends DISTREE APAC. This year’s confirmed audience already includes representatives from high quality retailers such as Singapore’s Sprint-Cass, Malaysia’s Thunder Match Technology and Power Mac Center from the Philippines. The presence of retailers as well as distributors also gives exhibitors a better understanding of the channel structures that exist in major Asian markets.

“The event is a highly efficient opportunity for vendors and brand owners to meet key channel executives from 20-plus countries. By bringing together great brands with the region’s top channel partners, we aim to create a win-win business environment for all attendees,” Painvin concluded.

The DISTREE APAC audience and recruitment team will follow up with all invited distributors and retailers that have not yet confirmed their participation at this year’s event.
