For the first time, Almaty hosted the EXIM BIG DEALS. Within three days, from November 28 to 30, more than 300 producers and retailers from Kazakhstan and neighboring countries discussed problematic issues and prospects for the development of retail trade. The forum is organized by EXIM EXPO.

The forum participants discussed such pressing topics as retail trends in Kazakhstan and global trends, prospects for partnerships of retail chains and their consolidation, technologies for creating best-selling goods, resources and new approaches in the trading industry, government support tools for participants in the trade and commodity production markets, increasing quality of goods and services in the domestic market, opportunities for foreign importers of consumer goods in the modern market of Kazakhstan retail, prospects for Kazakhstan manufacturers in Russian retail chains, and many others.

Manufacturers, retailers, government representatives and experts also took part in a roundtable discussion on how to identify the first signs of a bankruptcy network and what to do in this case. One of the most important issues on the agenda was the formation of contractual relations between producers and distribution networks in the coming year.
