The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 126 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Key Principles for Establishing Tourist and Recreational Zones
6 June 2019
11:00—12:15

Last year saw continued growth of the tourism industry in Russia and worldwide. According to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), international tourist flows exceeded 1.4 billion in 2018. This record figure was reached two years earlier than initially forecast by the UNWTO, with unprecedented tourist numbers recorded in each successive year since 2010. International tourism accounts for annual revenue in excess of USD 1.3 trillion. Russia has achieved remarkable growth in this area, as noted in the UNWTO World Tourism Barometer. This trend is supported by a number of factors; first of all, the government’s determination to accelerate growth by increasing non-commodity exports to USD 100 billion. There is also a great potential to further develop Russia’s inbound, domestic, and business tourism sectors. Establishment of modern tourism and recreational clusters meeting international standards relating to infrastructure, resources, and customer service can result in numerous benefits — increase and stabilization of international tourist numbers, improvement of the overall investment climate, fuelling growth in related industries, and instilling a culture of tourism services. What forms of government support will be put in place to help promote and develop tourist zones? What are some of the new technologies and infrastructure management models? What needs to be done to attract foreign investment?
