“This project is one of the most innovative and unique in our field for us, because it is in this format, as we have seen for ourselves, that manufacturers and customers are brands and
Networks - have an excellent opportunity to conduct targeted negotiations and to outline further plans for joint concrete actions in a shorter time frame, commented Bahrom Ashrafkhanov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Uzbekistan to the Russian Federation. -
For two years Bee-together.ru made a big leap before our eyes - the number of factories and countries, and, most importantly, negotiations, increased by an order of magnitude, which was largely facilitated by the innovation of the last issue - the small-scale production zone. ”
Sardor Umurzakov, chairman of the Uzcharmsanoat Association, said: “We entered the Russian market in 2016 and tried many different formats of interaction with Russian companies. The Bee-together.ru format offered by RAFI turned out to be the most successful and effective for us, because before conducting the event, RAFI carries out serious preparations so that the participants find their customers. ”
It is this aspect of ensuring and organizing the most effective meetings that the organizers paid attention to this season, which is also confirmed by statistics. So, in the fifth edition, the composition of both participants and visitors improved qualitatively. More than 1 of more than 500 registered visitors came to business meetings. The high-quality composition of the participants creates a unique synergy and allows companies to recommend each other to customers.
The head of the Concept Club brand, Daria Dorozhkina, noted that today the brands have a strategic task to withdraw production capacities from China, because the standard of living is getting more expensive and prices are rising, and the quality of products is not getting better. “We are interested in the development of new areas of our production. Be-together.ru helps manufacturers and large retailers like us to find common ground, meet one to one, and discuss the possibility of working together — it's more convenient than at traditional exhibitions, ”she commented.
