DLG International establishes subsidiary in Russia

Frankfurt/Main, Germany, 20th January, 2016 – DLG International, organizer of international trade exhibitions in the agricultural and food sector, today announced it has established an independent subsidiary in Moscow, Russia, incorporated as DLG RUS OOO.

DLG International, together with its subsidiary IFWexpo Heidelberg, one of the leading trade fair organizers worldwide in the field of agribusiness, has already proved a specialist in organizing exhibitions in the CIS region. By opening the new office, the companies will further strengthen their activities in Russia through this independent subsidiary.

"In order to support the further development of our existing and established exhibitions, such as AgroFarm, and the future expansion of activities in Russia, it is necessary to be physically present in Russia through a subsidiary on the spot," said DLG International Managing Director Bernd Koch.

Dr. Olga Hunger, Head of CIS cooperation at the DLG - German Agricultural Society, added: "With the local presence in Moscow, we are now even closer to the action and are able to support both our members and exhibiting companies better in developing their business in Russia."

The opening of the new office in Russia means that DLG International now has eight international subsidiaries: DLG RUS OOO in Russia; DLG Italia; DLG BENELUX in the Netherlands; DLG AgroFood in Poland; DLG Inter Marketing in Romania; DLG Fuarcilik in Turkey; and DLG AgroTechService in China, as well as IFWexpo in Heidelberg, Germany.
