"LIM" / MY TRADE GROUP (UKRAINE):

The private company "MY TRADE GROUP" is on the market since December 2014. From the beginning of 2018, we are implementing projects on behalf of "99'TOPS" and Forum “LIM”. For today we successfully conducted 26 forums for our priority target audience (retail, distribution, production, innovative teams and related B2B). Our forums: "LIM" ("LIM-LVIV", "LIM-KYIV"), "VLASNA MARKA & EXPORT", "BIG DATA FORUM", "MY SUPPLY CHAIN FORUM", "S&OP Lab", "My STORE", "1 + 1 = 3", "LOVE. MY RESTO" and others. Since 2018, together with our partners we are doing business missions of Ukrainian companies to the USA. In 2018, we successfully completed our B2B mission to the Sultanate of Oman.

As of 2018, we work with businessmen from 33 countries of the World and in 2019 we plan to continue invite foreign businessmen to Ukraine, as well as to carry out more B2B-events sharing our expertise abroad and establishing new long-term relations between our participants.

With extensive experience in the field of information analysis in 2019, we will also continue to develop the "Information Guru | В2В" project aimed at improving the efficiency of working with large fast-growing data volumes for B2B.
