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 155 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

Football and the Big City
7 June 2019

Major sporting events require both large-scale investments in construction and the modernization of sports and tourism infrastructure as well as a considered approach in preparing cities for an influx of tens or hundreds of thousands of out-of-town and international supporters. In 2020, twelve cities of the Old World will host the European Football Championship timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the continent’s first football championship. One of the tournament’s host cities is St. Petersburg. How can a city make the most of hosting an international sporting event? How can safety be ensured without inconveniencing residents and guests? How can the excitement of the fans be controlled and a festive atmosphere created? How can the life of sporting facilities be extended beyond that of the competition and their operation be made efficient and profitable?
