A new event to be held in Moscow on 11th & 12th November aims to help international agents break into the potentially lucrative Russian buyer market.

Russian Summit brings together some of the biggest agents working in international real estate in Russia such as Intermark Savills, Knight Frank Russia and Gordon Rock; with an audience of international agents and developers from destinations across the globe.

Ashley Rigg, director of co-organizer believes the event is an industry first:
“There are a number of successful international property shows in Moscow and St Petersburg but they are all aimed at the end consumer. There has never been anything focused on helping agents and developers both understand the market and more importantly meet local agents who can refer business”. have partnered with Russian media company aigroup to deliver an audience of local agents. Kim Waddoup, CEO of aigroup believes the event will address a real market need:

“We have worked in this market for over seven years and it is amazing the number of misconceptions people have about the country. Russia is different. If you are serious about this market, you have to build personal relationships and this is incrediably difficult to do without visiting the country and meeting people”.

“The aim of Russian Summit is to create a complete solution where agents can learn about the market but also meet agents at our mini-exhibition. We will be taking care of everything from translation of properties into Russian to personal interpreters and airport transfers”.

Russian Summit will be held at the World Trade Centre in Moscow on 11th & 12th November 2010. The event compromises an English-language conference and a dual-language exhibition aimed at Russian agents. The organizers guarantee a minimum of 100 local agents will be attending the event.
