16 of ITE Group’s Russian exhibitions named winners in the debut All-Russian Expo Rating 2011-2012

A number of exhibitions organised by ITE Group were prizewinners in the All-Russian Expo Rating 2011-2012, carried out for the first time by Russia’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Russian Union of Exhibitions and Fairs, together with the auditing company Russcom IT Systems.

Exhibitions held on Russian territory by domestic or international companies that have undergone an independent audit were eligible to take part in the rating, which assessed 311 major Russian exhibitions in 48 sections. Each section of exhibitions contained four categories: exhibition space, professional interest, international recognition, and market coverage.

96 Moscow-based and 48 regional exhibitions, 144 in total, entered the ‘higher’, competition stage of the rating, which was divided by location. All had undergone an exhibition audit procedure in line with international rules in the past two years.

Five of ITE’s exhibitions were recognised as the best in Russia across all categories: MosBuild 2012 in Construction, Finishing Materials and Equipment; TransRussia 2012 in Transport, Freight Delivering, Warehousing and Logistics; MITT in Tourism and Recreation; RosUpack 2012 in Packaging and Labelling; and Polygraphinter 2011 in Printing.

Pharmtech 2012 and MIPS 2012 were named the best in several categories: Exhibition Space, International Recognition, and Market Coverage. In all, 16 of ITE’s events were named in the ratings as the best or biggest in Russia.

The All-Russian Expo Rating is compiled based on reliable statistical data that is checked and approved by exhibition audit. These audits are carried out according to international rules controlled by UFI (the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry) and the Russian Union of Exhibitions and Fairs (RUEF). The technical operator of the ratings is Russcom IT Systems, an independent exhibition auditor accredited by UFI and RUEF.

The adoption of this ratings system means potential exhibitors can access impartial and reliable statistical information on exhibitions. This in turn helps create a transparent, competitive and responsible exhibition market in Russia.
