REVIEWS OF SUPPLIERS AND PARTNERS

Such kind of events are opened up new horizons for cooperation and communication at the bilateral level. The format of the convention, in my opinion, is practical, since it is not only theoretical knowledge. This practice and communication is not with intermediaries and representative offices, but directly with manufacturing plants, which provides a unique opportunity to find a convenient variation in price and quality. This format is very effective. The effect is displayed directly in the conclusion of contacts. A lot of companies came up and held short negotiations. Some of the food destination offers were very interesting. If there are any problems of a bilateral nature, they can be immediately resolved with current partners. A very comfortable platform.

In times of crisis, due to the fact that many pseudo-experts begin to fill the information vacuum, expert platforms for business are very important.

This is our second time of participation at this convention. Unfortunatly, due to pandemic situation It was not possible to come, but we were online. During our last meeting, we talked with more than 10 suppliers from the CIS countries. We had contracts and results.

Our company considers Kazakhstan as a strategic direction for the development of our own import assortment. We would like to get to know the companies personally, gain experience from other interaction partners, share our experience. It was interesting for us to consider logistical ways, to work them out with partners who will provide us with the opportunity to deliver the goods. At the convention there is an opportunity to get to know them personally, to discuss detailed issues for the development of cooperation. The event began with a market overview. For us, as retailers, this is very important information, because it is an inside view of the country with which we want to cooperate.

MAKRO is always looking for reliable and good big manufacturers. There is a good chance at the convention. There are many manufacturers from the CIS regions. We have already negotiated, and I hope that in the future we will definitely conclude contracts. There is one big advantage of the convention - before lunch there were interesting presentations and a discussion panel of professionals in their field.

We are interested in entering other suppliers, little bit changing the supply structure. Moreover, we are interested in developing the CIS markets, including Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. The trip is interesting because it is an exchange of experience and contacts.

The purpose of the visit was to meet with companies that will become real partners for in future. In 2018, we were already visited the convention. Here you can find new partners and gain new knowledge, because there is one platform where you can meet people who share them not from books, but by feeling from their own experience. The format of the convention is very lively, because in business, live communication where there are emotions is very important. Elena is perfect! She knows how to get the right people together every time and be sure to bring them closer. And after, when you return to your work, there is information on the shelves that you will need later.

A very interesting and useful event, first of all, to meet new partners. There are a lot of contracts that I think we will be able to work out in the future. If there are good conditions, normal purchase prices, we will be able to start and test online, because we are aimed at enriching the buyer with a variety of assortment. It is also an interesting platform for the exchange of experience, because it is informative to get information about other retail chains and from colleagues from other countries. Useful convention for small producers. Here they understand the requirements, how best to enter the retail network and on what to pay attention to, etc.

I've been on the convention 7 or 8 times. Always the organization is on the top. Big thanks to Elena! Thank you so much for the shopping table. Always after the World of trade convention we leave with concluded contracts. This time the geography has expanded, these are Azerbaijan, Armenia and Belarus. We are always happy to participate in such kind of events.

We always participate in this event. Because here at the same time a large number of our potential and existing partners can convey our view on the development of retail

Every forum we conclude new contracts with suppliers. In this Convention, 3 immediately concluded on the site.

Yesterday during the negotiations, in 2.5 hours I managed to hold 32 meetings. At one site a large number of suppliers are concentrated that may be of interest to us.

The convention was very productive. We held negotiations with 17 companies, 8 of them are interesting, we will continue the coordination.

The organization is at the highest level. There were a lot of negotiations and a lot of results. There will be contracts with retailers and equipment supplier NHL Retail. It's great! The result is there.

At the site held 15 negotiations with 3 suppliers are now at the conclusion stage. Generally very much. There was a lot of information. It was interesting to share experience with other networks. Thank you for the good organizational work.

I feel like there is a lot we can do here. We are interested in buying Kazakhstan goods to sell them in Afghanistan. We can work in two ways.

Here you can meet with representatives of local business in one place for 2 days, agree on supplies. We met with 2 companies, with whom we will definitely meet further.

We negotiated with 21 suppliers. Of these, we plan to cooperate with 9-11 suppliers. The venue is excellent for negotiating Retailers and Manufacturers / Suppliers. It is convenient to come and learn about the latest trends of Retail, and see all your future Partners.

Impressions are as positive as possible! It is a very rich program. I cannot give an exact figure, but in the format of negotiations, I think 95% of the declared companies came to me. We still receive offers, from manufacturers with whom I communicated at the convention, send to responsible colleagues, and calculate the cost. We plan to work with Uzbekistan, in connection with the Association of Exporters

Kazakhstan is far from Georgia, but it is still interesting how the retail market is developing. We exchanged experiences, contacts, scheduled meetings for further work

Each time the level gets higher. It can be seen that you are progressing. Not all speakers are interested in listening, but I understand that this is a state one. officials and they, in principle, always act like that. J But mostly interesting speakers. Since we have our own specifics, which is different from most networks. Some of the issues (“pain” of most networks) that were discussed are not entirely relevant for us. But in general, you are doing a great job and move the industry forward!

I would like to express my gratitude to you for the invitation and the perfectly organized event.
We conducted about 20 negotiations, during which the exchange of contact information took place. We are currently negotiating terms and requesting additional information from 4 vendors, including software vendors.

Thank you for organizing a large-scale event. For two days we had a lot of interesting talks and acquaintances. At the moment, 2 companies have already contacted us and negotiations are underway. Organization at a high level, very interesting trainings, a trainer, debates. The only minus of this trip is a little free time, more attention is paid to practical meetings, for example, visits to markets. We will be glad to take part in the following meetings.

We held 9 negotiations with suppliers, with 2 100% we will start cooperation. Everything was great !!!

As a distribution company, we participated in a similar event for the first time. The format of direct negotiations was pleasantly surprised. I would like to note the preparedness of the manufacturers of the parties to the Convention, in a short time you get the most complete picture of the products. Manufacturers of household chemicals would like to see more, because The market of Kazakhstan requires new brands, and we are ready to consider new offers in this product category.

Many suppliers, retailers. The experts in the sessions are well chosen. Many held talks with Kazakhstany manufacturers. I am sure that contracts with Ukrainian networks will be in continuation of these meetings.

Thank you for inviting us, we are happy to be part of this event. We held about 10 negotiations, cooperation will depend on the prices of products. We agreed with the manufacturers to continue communication. A very good opportunity to explore the market not only in Kazakhstan but a range from other countries participating in the Convention.

We arrived in Kazakhstan. For exchange of experience, meetings and acquaintances with suppliers. We saw new brands, found a lot of interesting things.

For the first time, they were able not only to familiarize themselves with the products, but also to conduct direct negotiations. We are ready to continue negotiations with two manufacturers from Russia. We have begun to consider contracts, and we hope to very soon we will be able to present new interesting trademarks on the Kazakhstan market.

We are the first time in Kazakhstan. We are interested in different products competitive, we study the market. Interested in flour products, canned food and alcohol. Everything may be interesting to our customers.

It is not the first time of our participation, every year more and more interesting. It is important that this platform is also for retailers, where we can exchange ideas and emotions. We get experience. Invite more suppliers.

We held quite a lot of negotiations, negotiations are underway with new companies, I think with several of them we will establish relations. According to the Convention as a whole, I can give a high estimate, according to the organization and essence. For my part, thank you for the invitation and I will be glad to participate in the future.

Tatyana Rudenko, Head of Foreign Economic Activity Directorate, Commander, Russia.

During the event, negotiations were held with more than 50 suppliers from different countries. I would like to mention the excellent organization of the event. The format of the event, which combines both the business part and negotiations with suppliers, is very interesting. During the event, problems and issues of relations between suppliers, in particular fruit and vegetable products, and retail chains were raised, namely: the organization of storage of products, cooling of goods before loading. It was also interesting to attend trainings for suppliers and purchasers. On my own behalf, I would like to express my deep gratitude to you for the cordial welcome, coordination during the event and escort during the excursions.

For me, as a distributor, it is very important to find a good supplier and that such direct suppliers come from foreign countries and I have the opportunity to go directly. We had a good negotiation. We will definitely continue to work

Dear Sargaldakovs Kanatbek Saduakasovich and Elena Rafikovna! The Export Support Center Foundation of the Krasnodar Territory expresses gratitude for the active and effective assistance in organizing and conducting a business mission of companies from the Krasnodar Territory to the Republic of Kazakhstan. We thank you for your assistance and look forward to further fruitful cooperation in realizing our goals and achieving the expected results.

I have visited the World of Trade Convention in Almaty in June. I was surprised by the format of the event, a real working platform for the business. Big amount foreign retailers. It was nice to see the activity of our suppliers from the CPE in different regions in the purchasing session and at the stands. An excellent opportunity to present your products and learn about the requirements of foreign buyers, large networks and distributors to organize cooperation. I hope that Russian companies will have new contracts after the Convention. I recommend paying attention to this format of B2B meetings to all Export Support Centers.

This is the largest platform in Kazakhstan in this segment. It is simply necessary to support the organizers and participants of the convention. This convention had a success. Topics that were discussed in two days are the most relevant for today. Many thanks to the organizers. So good understand and make sessions with these topics - I take off my hat.

This event is interesting because it brings together a large number of representatives of chains, various logistics and distribution companies that can help in marketing products. The convention is good organized. I liked the fact that, in addition to offline meetings with retailers, they organized online meetings, which can be very effective, because sometimes it is not possible to connect with those companies that are necessary for cooperation. The convention reveals pressing topics for both retailers and manufacturers. I think that this is an integral part, because it is necessary to involve various experts in order to maintain knowledge, gain new knowledge, understand what is happening on the market, and catch new trends. We already have about 10 potential partners in Kazakhstan. Now our next challenge is to find the right distributors to help us deliver. Our products turned out to be interesting and in demand, which is the most important thing.

We have been interested in entering to the countries of the near abroad for a long time, and Kazakhstan is the first country we came to. At the convention, I was interested in the list of participating networks. From Kazakhstan, all major chains were present, as well as Russian ones, which are also interesting for us. We managed to talk with Khabarovsk, most likely we will conclude an agreement with Krasnoyarsk, and with local networks. It turned out that we have a mutual interest. Here, in a short time, it is possible to talk with a large number of potential counterparties, and it is possible to establish contact. When you saw a person, it is already easier, you understand each other better. Nobody canceled personal contacts, even in our electronic age.

Holding such events is very important for us. At such events we meet with business representatives, learn the problems within the industry that we need to solve together, analyze the sphere of trade to build a direction to solve them.

On behalf of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Ukraine sincerely thank for the high level of holding the 13th congress of retailers and suppliers of the Convent "World of Trade" and its impeccable organization. Holding this convention is a great interest of Ukrainian and Kazakhstani business to cooperate, search for new markets and business contacts, establish mutually beneficial cooperation.

On behalf of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Kyrgyz Republic and from the Kyrgyz companies that participated in the "World of Trade" Convent, thank you for the opportunity for Kyrgyz companies to participate in such a significant event and to provide all possible support with your hand.
Thanks to the professional support of the event organizers, Kyrgyz companies were able to present their products with dignity and establish the first contacts, which we hope will become a successful and fruitful cooperation in the future.

On behalf of the leadership of the Tajik Chamber of Commerce and Industry, we express our special gratitude to you for the warm welcome of our representative and members of the RT CCI. We hope for long-term cooperation!

With many retailers have talked, everyone is interested in Uzbek food and non-food products, because our suppliers are well aware of the world markets, very competitive. We have good and high-quality products. We are starting to sign a contract with a retailer from Kyrgyzstan. Thank you so much!

We would like to thank the organizers of the World Trade For the opportunity to best demonstrate the capabilities of four companies in the Sverdlovsk region: to present a kind of mini-shop within one stand, which housed a shopping mall equipment from The Staratel LLC, DK-SP LLC, DataKratE LLC, as well as products of the Standard Trading House. Thanks to the eventful program of the Convent, the companies held several dozen b2b negotiations. Concluded one export contract and one contract are under discussion for the details of the transaction. We very much hope for the further development of the meetings held in the new contracts. We wish the organizers of WORLD TRADE good luck and further growth!

We have no regrets that we came here. I myself witnessed the arrangements at the table about contracts. Everything has gone well, and we have a chance for further cooperation.

We see the consolidation of players in the Kazakhstan market. Here the task is to keep retail chains in their diversity. We annually accompany delegations of Russian manufacturers of 15 to 30 companies. So far, more positive results from meetings with Kazakhstani retailers.

The event is well organized. Direct negotiations with potential partners have been very successful. The presence of company executives at the site of the Convention made it possible to begin systematic work on cooperation with 5 partners already during the event

The event was useful for us, both in terms of opportunities to tell the audience of retailers about SAP technologies for modern retail and our projects, and in terms of new contacts and acquaintances. Two days passed in fruitful communication, which was greatly facilitated by the format of activities. The meetings you have organized have been very helpful. It turned out to be a really heartfelt event!

How organized here is interesting and pleasant, because we learn about the world markets, about trends in Kazakhstan and the CIS, both productively and instructively at the same time. We will participate next time.

I liked the whole atmosphere and the quality of the people we could talk to. There were interesting networks and all the ones we wanted to meet.

This event was very useful for us, because Kazakhstani buyers do not know about Afghan products. Now they saw them, checked the quality of the goods. They said our product is very, very good.

Dried fruits that we offer organic. They were interested in several supermarkets and shopkeepers. We have completed B2B meetings and now the buyers are getting acquainted with our products at the stand, that would personally test our products. We discussed weight, packaging and are very happy to have come here.

Quite a large number of companies attended the event from different countries. We managed to talk to all the companies of interest to us.

Negotiations were held with more than 20 companies. We plan to continue negotiations with 3 dealers and 1 network.

We are representatives of the delegation of agricultural producers from Kyrgyzstan. The format of the event is unusual and interesting. It is very convenient that participants can not only present their goods, hold negotiations, but also take part in business sessions, master classes, and round tables. The compact size of the event site provides

The event is organized at the highest level. Due to this, it was possible to negotiate with more than 20 potential customers. I want to note the great interest of retailers and distributors of Kazakhstan to Non-food products.

We met and talked with 5-6 networks from Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation, Armenia and Azerbaijan. I think that these negotiations will develop into long-term contracts, and we will produce fruits and vegetables, canned goods, and non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages from Uzbekistan, not only in Kazakhstan, but also in other countries.

We first decided to present our products in Kazakhstan. We held many successful negotiations with almost all Kazakhstani networks. I am pleasantly surprised that in the process of negotiations not only acquaintance, but also a discussion of the terms of cooperation takes place.

We presented at the Convention a new mobile application for the delivery of goods. The opportunity not only to place a stand, but also to present your product in a format - presentations is a great opportunity to expand our customer base. The participants of the Convention are very positively cooperative. And the result will show time.

Very interesting event. The great interest of Russian manufacturers in the Kazakhstan market impresses.

In general, I liked it very much, the final goals that we set for ourselves, namely to hold meetings, negotiations with all key players were fulfilled. An extra bonus were very useful seminars, to informative "round tables" that introduced the specifics of the Kazakhstan market, master classes by Galina Panina and Sergey Ilyukha. The participation of representatives of NPP Atameken, and their interest in the overall positive results were pleasant. This is all a very unexpected bonus that exceeded expectations! The number of negotiations held is 25; these are 5 distributors and 20 networks, incl. from the Russian Federation. I would especially like to note the clear organization, the friendliness of the staff, the interest in the participants to establish contacts, readiness to help, competence in resolving issues were at the height. In the future we will take part. A good platform and format for building contacts.

Negotiations conducted with 7 networks for direct purchases. Very good and rich program of the Convention, very interesting participants.

We had 2 goals of participation in the Convention: expanding the representation of our products in the retail networks of Kazakhstan and searching for new manufacturers from the CIS countries to increase distribution contracts. Goals achieved. Unusual event format. We managed to show our products in the Hypermarket format exactly as it will be presented on store shelves, and conduct a tasting right on the site.

I liked the format of the site, it is quite democratic and there is the possibility of direct communication with buyers directly from the rack in the Hypermarket. There is an agreement to continue negotiations with 7 retail chains and 2 distributors. We are very pleased that we took part in this event.

I liked everything very much. There is an opportunity to listen to speakers and there is an opportunity to meet with all the participants. In general, this format looks very convenient, I can not notice the shortcomings.

I rate this event positively, everything was very positive. Perhaps I missed a number of important meetings / sessions, but only because there was one from our company. I managed to communicate with 14 networks of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation. Today we cooperate with many networks, but with a narrow range, we are interested in expanding cooperation. The site is good in terms of communication, participants and meetings.

We first decided to exhibit our product, and chose this convention. Conducted many successful negotiations with almost all networks that are present in the market of Kazakhstan

We came to Kazakhstan to start conquering the market. Present your modern, fashionable packaging in this market. For two days of negotiations, interest was enormous. Both at the wholesale companies, and at retail networks. Everyone is ready to make agreements with us.

Very actively, simultaneously you can hold a round of negotiations and find partners in trading networks

Plus - the establishment of contacts with the Russian, Kyrgyz - with any networks - with which we are not yet working. In our plans to go to Russia, Kyrgyzstan this year. Therefore, we conducted active negotiations productive.

There are a lot of topics that should have been discussed in more detail at the level of top retail. Because there is a misunderstanding due to a long chain of dialogue, the same category managers. Now ahead is a lot of work.

We brought to the meeting a large delegation of manufacturers from Poland. They have a great interest in the Kazakhstan market. And they were able to get all the information on the forum, ranging from product certification to logistics and contacts with retail chains.
