We are glad to invite you to take part in our new West Road Show 2013.
Please note that the fair will include 2 countries of Ex-USSR – Russia and Ukraine.
Before making the decision about participation we would like briefly describe the cities to be visited:
1) Dnepropetrovsk is Ukraine's fourth largest city, with about one million inhabitants.It is located southeast of Ukraine's capital Kiev. Dnepropetrovsk is a major industrial centre of Ukraine. It has several facilities devoted to heavy industry that produce a wide range of products, including cast-iron, rolled metal, pipes, machinery, different mining combines, agricultural equipment, tractors, trolleybuses, refrigerators, different chemicals and many others
2) Kiev is the capital of the Ukraine with the population of more than 3 million people and is the biggest city of the country. For the first time in the history of Road Shows we’ll conduct the SI Educational Fair for two days in a row in the city. In Kiev we have the head office for Ukraine with a well-trained and experienced staff providing all other Ukrainian representatives with the support and assistance in students’ recruitment.

The city is also famous in Ukraine as a big centre of mechanical engineering industry and light industry.
