Russian Fairs & Exhibitions

Specialized fairs and exhibitions are still an important promotion channel to develop your sales in Russia. Except for a few specialized events in selected regions, the largest fairs are usually held in Moscow.

But this comes at a cost: spots are expensive, paperwork can be time-consuming and advertisement before the fair is necessary if you want to increase both the quantity and quality of your visitors.

Promotion & B2B meetings

We propose increasing the number of visitors to your stand and organizing B2B meetings with a promotion campaign, namely involving one of our sales specialist to:

  • Draft a listing of targeted potential customers
  • Email them a personalized invitation to meet at the fair
  • Make follow-up calls and organize meetings at the fair with the confirmed prospects

We also translate and adapt the design of your advertisement materials and publish them in the specialized press before the exhibition.

Paperwork and coordination

Depending on the fairs, you might be surprised by the amount of paperwork necessary just to have a coffee machine on your stand! We unburden you of paperwork and organization and make sure you are in the best possible conditions at the fair:

  • Registration and orders of equipment and services at the stand
  • Finding and hiring a good interpret
  • Filling in the paperwork and making pre-payments
  • Assistance and coordination before/during your trip
  • Obtaining a Russian business visa

Founder & Director

Max Bosset, CEO at SAV-IOL SA

"We tried to enter the Russian market by ourselves, without any success. In less than 3 months, Swiss Center Samara proposed a dozen of potential distributors, organized a stand and a series of B2B meetings at a specialized medical exhibition in Moscow. We came back to Switzerland with a distribution contract and our products are now available everywhere in Russia"

Max Boysset / CEO, SAV-IOL SA

"Finding reliable business partners in Russia requires a local support. Swiss Center Samara helped us understand the country and the Region of Samara with much dynamism and an impressive network among academics and innovative companies".

Christophe Saam / CEO, P&TS
