In Moscow, on 15-16 April 2015, the Third Convention of Russian car dealers was held. The main industry forum of dealers attracted a record number of participants - more than 650 people, including car dealers, car makers, government representatives, suppliers of equipment and materials, banks, insurance companies, and journalists. The Convention included more than 20 events.

The main focus of the General Session was given by speakers to the current moment of the market and its prospects. In particular, a representative of Ministry of Industry and Trade announced forecast for 2015. Under the pessimistic scenario, by the end of the year in Russia it will be sold 1.3 million cars, according to the optimistic, which is based on measures of state support - 1,980 million cars.

Specific sales at the rate per one dealership declined by 23% - from 735 vehicles in 2012 to 564 - in 2014. About 400 dealerships are at risk and may be closed or redeveloped for other brands.
