I think that we will participate in the exhibition next year.

Maksim Kalinin, chief development officer of CSC BAV-Dvizheniye (Saint-Petersburg):

This is what we need today. In addition, we found the necessary contacts here. Our company occupies a leading place in the region, and for me as a head of the company, the presence here is very important. In the future, we will definitely come to this exhibition.

– I'm the first time in Krasnoyarsk, but not the first time at a forest exhibition this year. Compared with other exhibitions, the organization is much better here. A great advantage is that there are indoor exhibition halls, a large outdoor area. The main purpose of coming to the exhibition for us is to purchase automated processing lines. I compared the equipment of different manufacturers there. I saw a lot of interesting things. Krasnoyarsk exhibition was very useful, so I plan to visit this venue in the future. In addition, useful seminars are held there.


The results of
20th international specialized exhibition EXPODREV

From 4 to 7 September, 2018 in Krasnoyarsk one of the leading Forestry exhibitions in Russia was held – XX International Exhibition EXPODREV. Anniversary project has consolidate over 120 participants from 16 countries all over the world and more than two thousands of Russian and foreign specialists.

Opening

The exhibition was opened by the A.i. governor of Krasnoyarsk Region, Alexander Uhss: 

“With great pleasure I’m opening the 20th anniversary exhibition EXPODREV and greet all participants. Today’s exhibition gathered representatives from 16 countries and big companies working at that industry. It’s naturally that such a full-scale event has held on the territory of our Krasnoyarsk Region. The Region has a big stock of lumber and working actively at that industry, enlarging the timber harvesting volume, realizing big investment projects and actively practicing re-forestation. We are aware that the economic opportunities of this industry we don’t use to the full extent, including in the sphere of work in the forest, have many problems that the Krasnoyarsk Region must overcome. We need to move on to the implementation of wood chemical industry here, the absence of which is a thrombus for the development of the forestry industry, provide more profound processing of cut timber, the active development of wood house building and many other opportunities that the forest industry opens up. That's why we have something to show our guests and something to learn from them. I wish all participants successful work and good impressions of their stay in Krasnoyarsk", said the A.i. governor to the participants and guests of the exhibition.

The first day of the exhibition was marked by another significant event for the Krasnoyarsk Region. After the opening ceremony, the agreement was signed on cooperation between the JSC Saint-Petersburg International Mercantile Exchange and the Krasnoyarsk Region. Alexander Uhss, A.i. governor of the region, and Aleksey Rybnikov, chief executive, chairman of the board JSC Saint-Petersburg International Mercantile Exchange come to the negotiating table.

“The participation in this project is relevant for our region in the forestry branch. We have seen the best practices of other regions. And we were able to see our first result when the starting price and the real price paid by our customers differed from 5 to 10 times. I hope that this form of product realization will become more and more widespread and over time will become the predominant one for the Krasnoyarsk Region, which will ensure more income and revenue to the Krasnoyarsk Region budget", - Alexander Uhss commented after the ceremony.

Aleksey Rybnikov made a return speech, thanking the government of the region for supporting the exchange trade project. "I hope that our cooperation is the long road for many years, and agreement is only the first step. The region is an ideal client for us in terms of development of exchange trade, because there are all traditional goods here that are the subject of exchange trade in the world. Cooperating, we will do a lot for the region and for the country", concluded Aleksey Rybnikov.

"The theme of re-forestation was made concretely and meaningfully in the decree of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, which outlines the main priorities for the development of our country. Special attention to the reproduction of forests is given by the regional authorities. That is why we want to discuss it with the authorities, the scientific community, experts - the achievements and problems of this industry, the legislation amendments, the prospects and opportunities for interaction between the subjects of the SFO, the implementation of new technologies at the site of the Krasnoyarsk Timber Industrial Forum, "said Dimitri Maslodudov.
