The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Creative Economy: A New Vector in the Development of the North
15 June 2022
11:00—12:00

The Arctic is an environment that originally denied human presence, a realm of extreme challenges, super-stress and super-achievements. It is this philosophy that underpins the image of a human against the backdrop of vast expanses and perpetual cold. This image is reflected in the design of the Arctic station, in the construction of Northern cities, and in the local brands. Nevertheless, the ’true richness of Russia’, which lies in the cultural diversity and age-old traditions of small peoples, is still not in full demand, while the need to develop creative industries in Northern territories remains unapparent to many. What impact can the creative industries have on the socio-economic development of the North and the achievement of Russia’s national development goals? How do the creative industries change the wellbeing of people living in the North? What conditions and infrastructure are necessary for the development of creative industries in the Northern territories?
