About
Russia House is Russia’s official residence in Davos; a meeting place for business leaders, prominent politicians, economists, academics, and representatives of the creative professions. The key aim of Russia House is to demonstrate Russia’s openness to dialogue and cooperation in order to achieve shared success in business.

Over five days from 22 to 26 January the official Russian residence in Davos welcomed more than 1,000 guests from 60 foreign countries in addition to more than 120 media representatives. Over 50 business events and panel sessions took place within the walls of the Russia House and were attended by prominent entrepreneurs, experts, and media representatives.

The project was organized by the Roscongress Foundation in cooperation with its partners: Agency for Housing Mortgage Lending, ER-Telecom Holding, V-Tell, the Moscow Government, the Moscow Department for External Economic and International Relations, EY, and Universa. The operator of the site and evening events was Congress-International and the company Simple.

This year marked the first time that the Russia House acquired the status of an official Russian residence. In addition to the head of the government delegation Arkady Dvorkovich, the business programme also included Russian Minister of Energy Alexander Novak, Russian Minister of Economic Development Maxim Oreshkin, Russian Minister of Communications and Mass Media Nikolay Nikiforov, Minister of the Moscow City Government and Head of the Moscow City Foreign Economic and International Relations Department Sergey Cheremin, and representatives of other departments.
