DISTREE Brazil 2016 confirmed for September 20-21 in Sao Paulo
October 30, 2015
Sixth annual channel event to provide access to region’s leading consumer technology distributors, retailers and e-tailers. Powerful regional business development platform for technology brands.
Taking place for the sixth successive year in 2016, DISTREE Brazil will once again give consumer technology brands unprecedented access to senior executives and product buyers from the region's most influential channel partners through pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings.
Farouk Hemraj, Director and Co-Founder at DISTREE Events, said: “Next year’s DISTREE Brazil will build on the success of the 2015 event, which received positive feedback from participating delegates.”
Based on this year’s delegate survey, the majority of retailers and distributors who attended DISTREE Brazil & Latin America 2015 also plan to attend the 2016 event. Channel delegates that attended DISTREE Brazil & Latin America also expected to increase their portfolio and start new partnerships as a result of their participation. Many exhibitors surveyed rated the event as superior to a traditional tradeshow, and plan to participate in DISTREE Brazil 2016.
“These positive survey results highlight the unique benefits of the DISTREE event format,” added Hemraj. “We look forward to building on this success in 2016 and helping more brands achieve channel success in high potential Latin American markets.”
Recent research from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) indicates that Latin American economic growth is recovering during the second half of 2015 and gain further speed in 2016.
With a population base of just under 600 million, the wider Latin American market represents a significant growth opportunity for both local and international brands of consumer technology products. Identifying, recruiting and maintaining relationships with the most effective channel partners can make or break a brand’s success in the region.
Hemraj added: “DISTREE Events has a wealth of knowledge in Latin America and an extensive channel database. We also believe in supporting exhibitors before, during and after each event to make sure they meet the right people, hold constructive meetings and achieve business success as a result of their participation.”
DISTREE Events will continue to refine and improve the format of DISTREE Brazil, opening up new professional networking and business development opportunities for all attendees.
