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.

Cybersport: Global Trends in Sport and Business
24 May 2018
09:00—10:15

E-sports have become big business and are continuing to gain momentum. The audience for e-sports is growing by 25% a year and, despite its novelty, it is a promising sector for lucrative investment. In Russia, the e-sports market is outperforming even the most optimistic growth forecasts, with audience numbers approaching those enjoyed by sports such as ice hockey and basketball. E-sports were included on the Russian National Register of Sports in 2016, gaining the right to recognition as an ‘official sport’. How was this industry established and what is behind its rapid growth? What makes the e-sports market an attractive investment prospect? Could a commercially successful e-sports league be created on the Russian market?
