The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, and 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 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 159 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

The Russian Far East – At the Centre of Events
13 September 2018
12:30—14:00

The social and economic development of the Russian Far East is one of the factors that will determine Russia’s success in the international arena. Investment in establishing favourable conditions for business communications and incentives for business activity could prove to be a key element of this development, including by cultivating the region’s potential to host events and creating a comfortable sociocultural environment for guests. Today, many new convention and exhibition centres are being built throughout the world, and money is being invested in renovating existing venues both in developing areas, and in well-known locations which enjoy high demand from organizers of international events. Hosting international events boosts the profile of both the host city and the country as a whole, increasing their attractiveness to tourists and investors, facilitating socioeconomic development, providing an additional impulse for the growth of various economic sectors, and helping to improve the region’s position in the global arena. Russia has every chance of becoming a leader in the international events market through harnessing the potential of new areas like the Far East of the country. Could a cluster approach be employed to develop regional events potential? How can the Russian Far East effectively apply the similar experience and development model of the Asia-Pacific countries? What criteria should modern convention and exhibition venues meet? Could public—private partnership become a tool for the effective development and improvement of regional events infrastructure? What is the best way to choose international events and attract them to the region? What is the role of the social and cultural environment in boosting the attractiveness of the region from the point of view of event organizers and participants?
