A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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.

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.

World Cafe. Creative Industries – Breakthrough Vector
3 June 2021
One hundred years ago, members of what we now call creative industries looked at Russia as the source of everything that was contemporary, advanced, and influential. Something that should be appreciated, copied, and developed. Why is everything so different today? It’s hard to believe that talents are no longer being born in Russia. And it’s not just a matter of material support, but an atmosphere that holds back the spirit of innovation.

Where does Russia have the opportunity to become the best in the world? How do we shape the creative environment? Who is capable of producing a domestic creative product? How can we help young people join the ranks of creative entrepreneurs? How can we help established professionals find themselves in the growing cultural markets? How does one make the transition from inspiration to innovation?

Creative industry leaders and representatives of government, business, and educational institutions will find answers to these questions as they work in groups in the world café format. There will be a lively discussion whose results will form the basis of the final documents of the Creative Business Forum. A joint discussion will help formulate breakthrough ideas to form a ‘breakthrough vector’ for creative industries in Russia and to identify principles and key projects to change the situation.⁠
