The 15th annual DISTREE Russia (www.distree-russia.com) will take place in Moscow on May 30th to June 1st, 2018. This year’s event includes a new plenary session called ‘Gamechangers’ to update delegates on the major technology trends and new business models that will drive the evolution of channel ecosystems within Russia.

DISTREE Russia, the country’s leading annual tech channel hosted buyer event, offers technology brands and distributors access to executives from more than 250 of Russia’s leading retailers, e-tailers and resellers in one place at one time. The hosted buyer event covers both business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business channels (B2B).

Frederic Simard, Event Director for DISTREE Russia, said: “We want to ensure our channel audience from across Russia gets access to the latest and freshest thinking on the major technology and business trends. Their time is highly valuable and they deserve much more than a standard pitch or product roadmap presentation. We want to inspire them.”

“At this year’s DISTREE Russia, we’re launching ‘Gamechangers’, an exclusive invite-only plenary session at DISTREE Russia. Each speaker is allocated 20 minutes on stage to present on a topic related to major new technology trends and the evolution of channel and go-to-market structures in Russia,” he added.

From a product and solutions perspective, 5G, IoT, AI, blockchain, cloud, VR, AR, voice and analytics continue to drive innovation and customer engagement in both B2B and B2C environments. New channel business models related to omnichannel, e-tail, service provision, strategic collaboration and international trade are also reshaping the resurgent Russian market.

Simard added: “Delegates will hear from four major players and market influencers, each delivering a fast-paced 20-minute presentation. Challenging and inspiring, the new ‘Gamechangers’ session will deliver vital cutting-edge content, plus fresh business ideas for all delegates.”

National organisation AP KIT (Information & Computer Technologies Industry Association) is a Content Partner for DISTREE Russia 2018. AP KIT’s involvement will increase the relevance of the conference programme for Russian participants, identifying the most important topics within the Russian market.

DISTREE Russia has also appointed in-country expert Marina Nikitina as a Special Adviser to evaluate and invite speakers to participate in the inaugural ‘Gamechangers’ plenary session. The full line-up of speakers and topics for the session will be officially unveiled in the coming weeks.

“We are delighted to be working with Marina Nikitina on the inaugural ‘Gamechangers’ session,” said Simard. “Her wealth of channel experience, in-depth market knowledge and links to organisations such as AP KIT will ensure the very best speakers participate in the first ever ‘Gamechangers’ session.”

DISTREE Russia 2018 will take place in the luxurious surroundings of the Areal Congress Hotel. Surrounded by green parklands, this conveniently located hotel is situated just 10 miles from Moscow’s ring road. The DISTREE Russia 2018 ‘Gamechangers’ session will take place on the morning of Thursday 31st May in the main auditorium.

Delegates attending DISTREE Russia create a personal agenda of pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings tailored to their precise business needs. They also participate in a packed conference programme that includes awards, keynotes, workshops, briefing sessions and professional networking opportunities.

Vendors, technology suppliers, distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers that require more details on DISTREE Russia 2018 can find full event details and contacts at www.distree-russia.com or follow @DISTREE_Russia for event updates.
