More than 120 exhibitors from 15 countries are to take part in Russia’s first ZOW show on April 26-29.

The furniture and interior design showcase, billed as an opportunity for companies seeking to gain entry into the Russian market, is expected to attract about 3,000 specialist trade visitors.

Exhibitors include companies from Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, UK, Japan, Syria, Turkey and Spain. Italy has the single largest share of space with around 50% of the total, followed by Germany and Russia.

A conference, “Competition Development in the Russian Supplier Market”, will take place on the first day of the show and is supported by the Ministry for Industry and Technology, the Moscow city government and Russian furniture associations.
