Our role is to promote the vast opportunities that ICSC's international network presents to our industry in the Russia Federation. Aniko will be sharing her experience and knowledge of retail across Europe."

Aniko Kostyal added: "MANGO has been actively participating at ICSC networking events around the world and we are especially glad that from now on we will have the chance to do the same on the buoyant Russian market. I will be delighted to openly share our 25 years of fashion retail experience within which we have 10 years of business experience in the Russian market and comment on today´s challenges in the sector."
