ExpoForum Is Negotiating with Potential Clients

ExpoForum participated at the EiBTM-2010 exhibition for the events industry, which took place in Barcelona from 29 November to 3 December.

ExpoForum occupied about 25% of the Russian stand at the exhibition, which usually does not accomodate an individual company, but instead the entire country, or regions, or cities. Interest in ExpoForum’s Convention and Exhibition Centre, which will open in St Petersburg in 2013, is growing with every trade exhibition. The company made its debut in May of this year at the IMEX-2010 exhibition in Frankfurt-on-the-Main.

In Barcelona, ExpoForum presented its full plan for the CEC, and this allows negotiations to begin with potential clients to hold their events after the complex’s opening. Meetings were held with the European Federation of Biochemists, the Association of Urologists, as well as with the largest congress organizers, MCI, Congrex, Kenes International, and many other potential clients.
