Even though Moscow Ski&Board Salon was divided into industry segments (Sports, Tourism, Ski Build Expo) in the previous years, the year of 2011 saw the complete realization of this industry-specific division. Technically, the entrance to Ski Build Expo area was organized through the turnstiles “SKIDATA Freemotion" and "Vario.Gate.” provided by Gorimpex Company, automatically registering the professional visitors; Ski Build Expo area had two such entrance/exit points.

A few months before the start of the exhibition, exhibitors of Ski Build Expo began to send out invitations to their customers to pass into the Ski Build Expo area, providing thus a good turnout of the professionals and representatives of the market in particular. This move allowed, on the one hand, to cut off the casual visitors, and on the other hand, significantly raised the 'quality' visitors' audience that almost 100% consisted of the potential buyers of the product offered by the Ski Build Expo exhibitors.
Ultimately, organizers received a fully-fledged B2B expo event, which provided an opportunity for decision makers to do business dialogue in the business-like and at the same time relaxed atmosphere.
