Analysis of practical methods for assessing the quality of trade services shows the lack of a strategic approach. In the opinion of the authors, it is necessary to distinguish such concepts as «quality of commercial services» and «quality of services provided». To assess the quality of services of trade enterprises, the authors consider it appropriate to use such indicators as compliance with customer requirements, reliability, accessibility, security. For develop a system of integrated assessment of the quality of trade services, key determinants that determine the successful achievement of targets are identified. The adaptation of the «Balanced scorecard» to the evaluation of the quality of servicing of a retail trade enterprise is proposed. The main advantage of this approach is the ability to assess the quality of service based on an understanding of the key factors of the company’s success, and also to assess the impact of these factors on the financial performance of a retail business. The approaches to the evaluation of the quality of the work of sales personnel are systematized, which will allow to identify the strengths and weaknesses in its work, which is important for building long-term relationships with target buyers. The results of the research can be used to develop a sales strategy, a company development strategy.

The purpose of the research: the development of the procedure for establishing the prices of the exhibition area by the organizers of exhibition and fair events, taking into account the differences in the quality of the exhibitions. Authors give a justification for the fact that the size of the exhibition space leased by the exhibitors represents an integral measure of the quality of the events. This conclusion was obtained through a correlation analysis of a vast amount of official statistical information on the 67 international specialized trade exhibitions held in 2015 in the B2B format in four countries: Russia, Germany, Italy and France. As a result of the study, it was found that the relative value of «price / quality» in the conduct of a specific exhibition event is mathematically displayed as the ratio of the price of the alternative, to the size leased by exhibitors of the exhibition space. The price of the alternative is the maximum price of the exhibition space at which the demand of exhibitors for participation in this exhibition event disappears completely. To detect differences in the quality of the exposure measures, there must be a definite reference point. Guided by the principles of benchmarking, this «point» (the basis for comparison) should be the best in quality in the corresponding segment of the market exhibition-benchmark, which is the largest exhibition of a particular thematic focus in the corresponding segment of the exhibition services market. The price / quality ratio formed at these exhibitions is the limiting for all other exhibition events of the corresponding thematic focus. To determine the price of the exhibition space, depending on the quality of exhibitions on the proposed in the article formula, the organizers need to find in their competitive environment the best exhibition and relevant information about it.
