This year marks QNETs 20th anniversary in the US$183 billion global direct selling industry. In the Russia and CIS region this industry has generated more than US $2 billion in 2016 according to a report by the World Federation of Direct Sales Association (WFDSA).
The direct selling industry is over 100 years old in many developed, advanced economies and is seen as a lucrative form of self-employment and entrepreneurship due to the low startup costs and the strong support system provided by genuine direct selling companies. More than 100 million people are involved in this industry in both part-time and full-time capacity.
QNET is headquartered in Hong Kong and has a presence in more than 25 countries through branch offices and agency partnerships. QNET has been present in the CIS region since 2010 and has approximately 130,000 people pursuing their entrepreneurial dreams through its business opportunity in various CIS countries.

This year, QNET expects to add another resort in Batumi further strengthening our commitment to promoting Georgia as a desirable tourism destination in the region.
QNETs management team has arrived in Georgia to address recent concerns raised by certain sections of the media about its business and to present a clear picture of the company and its activities.
QNET firmly believes that there is nothing more empowering to individuals than the financial freedom that a career in the direct selling industry provides, and we believe Georgian people, with their ambition and strong sense of entrepreneurship will appreciate the products we sell and the business opportunity we offer.’ ‘”said Trevor Kuna, CEO of QNET.
We are aware that this is still a very young business in Georgia and hence not very well understood.
That is why some unscrupulous operators take advantage of this lack of awareness and promote financial pyramid schemes under the guise of direct selling.’
QNet has also been a victim of these unethical practices and this has created some misperceptions about the company. I take this opportunity to clarify that QNET is not a get-rich-quick scheme.
In addition to great products, we offer a business opportunity to those who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs and sell our products to others and earn a commission on those sales,’ Kuna further explained.
We are proud to have helped many young Georgians achieve their dream of building a successful business and transform their lives. As our business is growing, our focus is now on improving our training programs and advocating for professional and ethical practices in conducting the business.
We do not encourage anyone misrepresenting our business and will take strict action against them upon receiving such complaints. – added Cem Geyik ‘“ Regional General Manager of RCIS and Turkey.
