Exhibition and fairs activities. Exhibition Schedule
The main task of the Exhibition and Fair Work Department of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Tajikistan is the organization and hosting of exhibitions and fairs.
Today, the exhibition activity is one of the levers of market development which serves to expand the foreign economic relations of Tajikistan and contributes to improving the export efficiency of domestic products. It also serves the development of the domestic market of our republic, fills it with high-quality competitive goods.
Exhibitions and fairs are market events where exhibitors present produced goods and services on the basis of exhibition samples.
At exhibitions and fairs, organizations (exhibitors) use samples (exhibits) to demonstrate the goods and services they produce in order to study market conditions and promote their sales.
A distinctive feature of fairs is that they, as a rule, involve the direct sales of the products being shown by exhibitors, although at present, the boundaries between the concepts of “exhibition” and “fair” are reduced to a minimum.
Exhibitions and fairs are usually multi-component events which include, in addition to demonstration of exhibits, conferences, seminars, “round tables” and other events that perform an information function.
The exhibition organizer – the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Tatarstan is an organization, registered in accordance with the legislation of the Republic of Tajikistan, that prepares and holds exhibitions and fairs in Tajikistan and abroad.
The organization and holding of exhibitions is one of the priorities in the activities of our Chamber. From 2003 to the present day, more than 200 exhibitions have been held at the CCI RT. There has been not only quantitative growth, but also a qualitative increase in the activities carried out. The events held are divided into thematic and universal exhibitions. If the company cannot visit and participate in the work of the exhibition, then another form of participation is provided – in absentia. For example, at the exhibition Interlegprom 2009, a Russian company from the city of Saratov took part in absentia. Employees of our Department have designed a stand for the company “Voskhod” producing bakery and confectionery equipment.
There is also an example of a catalogue exhibition. In 2007, mobile catalogue exhibitions of the Czech Republic were held in the cities of Dushanbe, Khujand and Kurgan-Tyube. Czech companies presented information materials: catalogues, booklets, magazines about their companies.
The practical use of exhibitions for our entrepreneurs is that they have the opportunity to find business partners for cooperation without leaving the republic.
Among the events held the National Exhibitions should be noted. The Russian National Exhibition was organized jointly with the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation. The exhibition was held from November 29 to December 2, 2005, at the Exhibition Complex Kokhi Borbad with the participation of exhibitors from 23 regions of Russia. The China National Exhibition was organized jointly with the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China and was held from July 29 to August 1, 2008, at the Exhibition Complex Kokhi Borbad with the participation of 73 companies from 6 provinces of China. According to the Chancellery of the Chinese Embassy in the Republic of Tajikistan, contracts valued at 200 million USD was signed as the result of the exhibition. The National Exhibition of the Islamic Republic of Iran was organized by the Chamber of Tajikistan in cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce and Trade of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the exhibition company Surushi Khuroson. The exhibition was held from 23 to 27 November, 2009, at the Exhibition Complex Kokhi Borbad, the number of participants – 60 companies from different regions of Iran.
Companies from various fields of industries, agriculture, medicine, etc. take part in National Exhibitions. In the context of the National Exhibitions, round-table discussions, business forums, and cultural events of the countries are organized. All these activities are aimed at closer familiarization with the economies of the represented countries, creating prospects for further cooperation, as well as attracting investments into our country’s economy.
For several years, the Chamber has organized missions of the Chamber members and entrepreneurs to visit the Annual Trade and Economic Fairs in the city of Kashgar and Urumqi, China. In 2013, 200 people from Tajikistan visited the fair in Kashgar. The participation of our entrepreneurs in such events provides an opportunity to expand the scope of activities, increase trade turnover between our countries, and also contributes to the development of small and medium businesses.
We would like to give an example of the organization of the annual exhibition InterLegProm. The first exhibition was held in 2006 to celebrate the Light Industry Workers Day in Tajikistan, which is in June. The exhibition grew from the “Republican” into the “International” exhibition. It has become annual. In 2014, the 8th Annual International Exhibition InterLegProm-2010 was held. This exhibition is held with the aim of developing the light industry and agriculture of Tajikistan, to improve the competitiveness of domestic goods.
Since 2003, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Tajikistan has been working on the participation of the Republic of Tajikistan in the world exhibition EXPO-2010 in Shanghai, China, and EXPO-2012 in Yeosu, South Korea.
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Tajikistan has exhibition equipment for building exhibition stands, including modern additional exhibition equipment that is used in the organization of exhibitions and fairs.
