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 160 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 Role of Creative Projects in Developing Creative Cities
2 June 2021

Creative industries are closely linked to the concept of the ‘creative city’ proposed by Charles Landry. A creative city is not necessarily a metropolis; a small town or even a rural settlement can become creative. To develop a territory, it is crucial to use the key resource — the creative energy of residents and their innovative, entrepreneurial, and socio-cultural initiatives. The creative engagement of citizens is what generates new jobs and creates an atmosphere that makes a city an attractive place to live and an alluring tourist destination. How can creative industries and creative businesses benefit small towns? What local problems (which can become new markets for creative industries) should creative entrepreneurs pay attention to today? What effects do creative projects and creative businesses have on the development of territories? Can small towns and rural areas become full-fledged participants in the ecosystem of a creative economy?
