East Meets West Congress was originally created in order to construct the platform for trade meetings and negotiations for the FMCG Community of the East and West. Initially, it just aimed at the countries ranging from Ukraine to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
Over time, the Event expanded & became the paneuropean platform for meetings of manufacturers and buyers of the largest retail networks, distribution and logistics.
EMW Congress is a platform which enables to do fast and efficient business.
Almost every month, the EMW events gather on its platform all the above business entities, who participate in the trade of FMCG fast-moving consumer goods. For manufacturers it is an extraordinary opportunity to do extremely effective business. In fact, in one place they have simultaneous access to the sales and import directors of 15-20 and more retail chains/distributions as well as to large European and Eastern sourcing companies. Taking into consideration the money and time that a producer needs to spend in order to gain access to a a wide range of business contacts and then to meet with these partners individually - EMW Congress creates extremely effective and simple opportunities for making new commercial contacts and selling products.
Commercial networks also benefit from our formula of meetings. Buyers, who are often pressed for time, need the maximum efficiency of action and business. At EMW Congress they can comfortably and quickly source many potential suppliers. Networks from distant countries get familiar with the structure of the suppliers of the west European market. Networks from west and central Europe get familiar with the potential of suppliers from the East and can exchange managerial experiences with colleagues from other countries, often acquainting with different patterns of trade and management. Distributors and commercial networks also often exchange trade marks with each other as well as set the rules of licence cooperation and so on.
EMW Congress is also of multi-format nature. It starts with short, handling & working EMW DIRECT events, which create the simple platform for B2B meetings lasting for 1 day and ends with the GRAND GALA - lasting for 3 days, which not just offers the opportunity for the multi-day marathon of business meetings but also enables to participate in less official business talks during informal tastings, as well as trade lectures and workshops. Several times a year, we also organize FMCG trade meetings, e.g.: COSMO – dealing mainly with cosmetic and chemical industries; Masters of Retail-where the Polish traditional trade, and the one which originated from it, meets; Distribution & Logistik- the platform for handling the traffic in trade.
Our EMW events give you the opportunity to take part in the most effective retail-manufacturer meetings.
During one day, you will meet more than 20 retailers and dozens of manufacturers. Both trade and manufacturers come from wide-ranging Europe and Eurasia.
EMW Congress is a place of development of the trade of fast-moving goods CONNECTING business of the East and West.
