As Dmitry Sorokorensky, Managing Director of Moldexpo LLC, explains: “Russia remains one of the countries that has great potential for economic growth and trade fair business.

Messe Frankfurt is one of the key players on the trade fair market and has expertise in many different business fields. Its experience will be instrumental in the further development of RosMould.”

A great many of our activities are geared towards technology trade fairs. With RosMould, we are strengthening our expertise in the field of moulding technologies. In addition to Asiamold in Guangzhou and Formnext in Frankfurt, RosMould now allows us to offer our customers another trade fair event in a promising market of the future.”

Messe Frankfurt RUS is the Moscow-based subsidiary of the international trade fair group. Its portfolio includes nine international trade fair and forum brands in Moscow, Kazan and Astana. Events like Modern Bakery Moscow, Interlight Moscow powered by Light+Building, Comtrans and Heimtextil Russia are among the leading trade fairs in Russia and the CIS states.

The Russian branch office organises two national Chinese trade fairs that were initiated by the government of the People’s Republic Of China – the China Commodity Fair and the China Machinery Fair.

Eugen Alles, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt RUS: “Thanks to this investment, we can offer an outstanding platform for the Russian and international high technology market. With our expertise and global trading network, we are in a position to transfer innovations from knowledge carriers to local markets. Messe Frankfurt RUS and Mesago see great potential in trade fairs like these.”

The next RosMould is scheduled to take place between 19 and 21 June 2018 as part of the IEC Crocus Expo.
