The First Iranian Consumer Summit 2016 will provide a unique opportunity to examine the consumer market in Iran and learn valuable lessons from those already operating and investing there. It will discuss the best ways and models to enter the market, learn how to optimize international financial transactions, evaluate legal and business risks as well as to assess consumer culture.

The summit will provide practical knowhow on more detailed issues surrounding operations, distribution, human resources, legal and marketing.

The summit will provide a networking platform for foreign investors and corporations, both those who only now are looking to enter Iran but also those who already are operating there, as well as local Iranian manufacturing companies, distributers, legal and advisory firms.
