The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Russian Ministry Discusses Development of Exhibition, Fair, and Congress Activities in Moscow

Russian Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Alexey Gruzdev chaired a meeting at the ministry in Moscow to discuss a plan for the implementation of a road map to develop exhibition and fair activities for the period until 2025. During the meeting, St. Petersburg International Economic Forum Director Alexey Valkov presented a report with proposals from the Roscongress Foundation.

“One of the fundamental stages in the implementation of the roadmap approved by the Russian government in Directive No. 1957-r dated 16 July 2022 is an in-depth and comprehensive analysis of the region’s convention and exhibition infrastructure, which will make it possible to develop an effective plan for the modernization and strategic development of the exhibition, fair, and convention infrastructure of the Russian regions,” Valkov said.

The Roscongress Foundation, the federal executive authorities, and the heads of the Russian regions are already actively working on planning and creating large congress venues for business events in the Far East, not only on Russky Island, but also in Kamchatka. Building and distributing this type of infrastructure throughout the country will help strengthen ties at the regional level and attract new international events.

The restrictions imposed due to COVID-19 necessitated a review of work related to the entry of foreign participants into Russia for convention and exhibition events. Jointly with the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Roscongress Foundation has developed and tested a document at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) that can verify the status of participants in real-time without using special technical equipment. This document has been chosen as the basis for obtaining a visa, boarding an aircraft, as well as crossing the border upon presenting the main package of documents.
