Governor Veniamin Kondratiev visited one of the biggest business events of the industry.
«Wood processing and furniture production are among top priority sectors of the industry in Kuban. Today, more than 400 enterprises operate in this field and employ about 6,500 residents of the Krasnodar Krai. After the suspension of foreign competitors’ activities, our main task now is to help our entrepreneurs to fill the vacated niches and find alternative supply routes and new partners. Such events as the UMIDS exhibition are a great opportunity to solve these issues,» said Veniamin Kondratiev.
The international UMIDS exhibition of furniture, materials, accessories, and equipment for wood processing and furniture production is one of the biggest events of the industry in Russia. The event has been held in Krasnodar since 1997. In 2022, 320 companies are participating in the exhibition, including 11 international ones – from Belarus, China, Turkey, Germany, and Italy. The Krasnodar Krai is represented at the exhibition by 61 companies.
