DISTREE confirms dates and venues for 2014 events
Six events scheduled for next year including debut of DISTREE Africa
DISTREE Events has officially announced its 2014 calendar, with six channel events planned around the world, including the debut of DISTREE Africa in June.
DISTREE Events, a division of Infopro Digital, provides ICT and consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers with the most efficient and cost-effective platform for managing, developing or launching volume routes-to-market through e-tailers, retailers and distributors.
Farouk Hemraj, director and co-founder at DISTREE Events, said: "We are pleased to offer such a comprehensive programme of events for 2014, including the launch of DISTREE Africa. We can engage with manufacturers on a truly global basis and offer additional benefits to companies that participate in multiple events in 2014."
The inaugural DISTREE Africa is scheduled to take place in June. Hemraj explained: "The decision to launch a dedicated DISTREE Africa is in response to high demand from vendors, looking to reach Africa's fast-growing consumer markets for technology products. DISTREE Africa will bring together senior retail executives from across the continent, giving exhibitors an opportunity to map the channel landscape, meet key contacts and expand their African routes-to-market in a structured and cost-effective manner."
"DISTREE Events offer a vastly superior experience to a traditional trade show or exhibition. Using a unique format - developed by DISTREE Events and deployed in fast-growing markets around the world - the events allow each delegate to pre-schedule a personal agenda of one-on-one meetings with channel partners based on their precise business needs," he added.
Delegates attending DISTREE events have the opportunity to attend keynote speeches and panel discussions, participate in interactive workshop sessions, network with their peers and access the latest research on channel trends. Evening functions, new product showcases and channel awards offer participants the widest possible range of business benefits.
