St. Petersburg’s International Economic Forum is held annually under the auspices of Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation. Over the last 20 years, the forum has become a leading global platform for representatives of the business community to meet and discuss the key economic issues facing Russia, emerging markets and the world as a whole. Around 12,000 participants from 133 countries are expected, including heads of state and government from emerging economies, executives of major corporations, and the world’s leading experts in the fields of science, media and civil society.

Major topics are the handling of innovative approaches towards developing and using cutting-edge technologies. Besides the business aspect the event will also offer cultural and sporting insights, as the participants will have the chance to experience St. Petersburg during the White Nights season.
