Furthermore, for the first time, the show hosted a 2-day summit dedicated to retail in Russia and in the cosmetics industry in general. The Retail Connect Summit gathered brands and retailers onsite the show for a series of conferences and pre-arranged one-to-one meetings between retailers and their suppliers. A total of 422 meetings where organised between 34 perfumery and cosmetics suppliers and 25 leading Russian retailers.
