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 City of the Future
25 May 2018
10:15—11:30

The city of the future is being defined by the technology of the future — from fully integrated infrastructure and automated mass transit platforms to driverless cars, sensory-powered street lighting, parking and traffic monitoring networks, and advanced waste-disposal systems. The smart city of the future is increasingly being driven by big data and AI computing capabilities. To make such a hyper-connected environment fully effective, the DNA of urban environments, i.e. their people, must also be educated and reprogrammed. What cities have been effective in not only introducing new urban management systems, but also ensuring broad take-up by citizens? What new technologies are coming on stream that will reshape futuristic urban landscapes? What measures should urban officials put in place to mitigate new risks arising from the deployment of tech-driven urban management systems?
