VDNH and The Roscongress Foundation signed a cooperation agreement at the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum for the organisation and hosting of joint events on the territory of the Exhibition of the Achievements of the National Economy, along with thematic and international communication venues in Russia and abroad. The document was signed by Sergey Shogurov, General Director at JCS VDNH, and Alexander Stuglev, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of The Roscongress Foundation.
Under the agreement, the parties will engage in comprehensive cooperation aimed at regulating and supporting congresses, fairs and exhibitions along with socially significant and innovative projects.
'VDNH is a unique public space in Moscow in its scale and content, offering visitors a carefully landscaped territory, a park, historic pavilions and fountains. The Exhibition component is the historical core of VDNH activities. However, the Exhibition offers a wide variety of formats making it a great venue for events of any kind and for any audience. That's our key competitive advantage not just in Russia but globally. One of the priorities in VDNH's new strategy is to establish the VDNH EXPO, a modern high tech congress and exhibition centre. Cooperation with the Roscongress Foundation—the largest organiser of international events, congresses, exhibitions, business, along with sporting, public and artistic events—will give us access to new exhibition formats while allowing us to host major congresses, symposiums, concerts, shows and entertainment events across the territory of the Exhibition', noted Sergey Shogurov, General Director at JCS VDNH.
The parties agreed to cooperate on promoting significant events on the territory of VDNH.
'VDNH makes an important contribution to the development of fairs and exhibitions in Russia. The company is helping establish direct links between Russian and international manufacturers and consumers, promoting domestic achievements in science, technology and the arts to both domestic and international markets. Under the new agreement, Roscongress and VDNH will carry out joint activities to promote international and interregional production cooperation', stressed Alexander Stuglev, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of The Roscongress Foundation.
