Event Passport of the Region: Kamchatka

Kamchatka is the most remote region from the central part of the country, an area with pristine nature. In this publication, the Russian Convention Bureau provides an all-round description of the region covering its geography, economy, event industry, tourism, culture, and traditional cuisine. The authors of the report speak about the diverse flora and fauna of the region and note the fact that the natural volcano landscape in Kamchatka was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. At the same time, Кamchatka Krai is one of the least inhabited constituent territories of the Russian Federation.

The fishing industry is the main link in the economic structure of Kamchatka Krai. In addition to fishing, processing fish, studying fish and fish farming sectors, the local economy includes a number of auxiliary and service sectors, as well as institutions of manufacturing and social infrastructure. The most important of those are ship repair, construction, transport, storage and transshipment of fish products. The main types of economic activities that provide for most of the GRP volume, besides fishing and fish farming, are processing industries, wholesale and retail trade, healthcare and social services, natural resources, and tourism.

The number of tourists coming to the region has been growing over the past several years. In 2018, Kamchatka Krai was visited by almost 26,000 foreign tourists, which is almost twice as many as in 2017. The total number of tourists who came to Kamchatka last year exceeded 215,000 people.

The Kamchatka Exhibition and Investment Center is the only venue on the peninsula which holds more than 10 exhibitions each year, along with other various large-scale events and activities. The largest events recently held at the venue are the Kamchatka Forum of Entrepreneurs (November 26-28, 2018), the Architectural Exposition, the «Your Home 2018» exhibition, and the Kamchatka Business Strategy and Management Cup.
