Making Russia Easy

in association with Albion (Overseas) Ltd

Everybody has a view on Russia; but the reality is often quite different. Despite what you may read in the press, Russia and the UK enjoy excellent business relations. Very recently, Russia was the UK’s fastest growing export market and with Sterling weaker, we anticipate strong growth again.

This event will take a look at opportunities in Russia, practical issues such as finding and working with distributors, product certification, keeping costs down, getting there and sending goods to Russia. Also, in addition to the opportunities in Russia, there will be an introduction to the brand new and already popular “TRAK” service, which gives companies immediate additional access to the massive markets of Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.

The Institute of Export has teamed up with Albion (Overseas) Ltd to offer this workshop. Over the past two decades Albion have helped hundreds of exporters to do business in Russia. They can do this because they have their own distribution experience; their Moscow office is situated beside their warehouse.

Ideal for companies and individuals interested in Russia, discover the tools and information needed to successfully trade with such a large market. What are the solutions to the issues presented by a devalued Ruble, and of course, where are we heading?
