ExpoForum Finalized the Integrated Plan to Clear the Construction Site of Current Infrastructure
ExpoForum JSC finalized the integrated plan to clear the current infrastructure from the site of the future convention and exhibition centre so that it corresponds with the greater effort to improve the transport system in the area.
The plan received official permission from all the design organizations responsible for the infrastructure and the road system on the site and in the vicinity.
The plan for infrastructure removal was created by ExpoForum experts in conjunction with the partner design organizations. ``Every possible type of infrastructure is currently on the site, and if you consider the changes that will be made in the road system, then you can imagine the difficulty of the task before us,’’ said ExpoForum general director, Anatoly Erkulov. ``Infrastructure removal from the site is now ready to go, and we will begin work in the first quarter of next year.’’
ExpoForum JSC signed a contract with Imtech Russland OJSC for consulting services to design the mechanical engineering systems for the hotels to be built at the ExpoForum International Convention and Exhibition Centre close to Pulkovo Airport.
The board of directors of the International Congress and Convention Association, ICCA, approved ExpoForum’s membership application.
The project design for the first stage of the Petersburg Highway reconstruction, which ExpoForum paid and ordered in agreement with the St. Petersburg city government, has been completed and sent to the state expertise agency. Construction is set to begin in 2011, and will be completed in 2013 in time for the opening of the new convention and exhibition centre.
On December 16 a spiritual music concert will take place in the St. Sophia Cathedral in Tsarskoe Selo as part of the Year of Russia and France 2010. ExpoForum JSC is the event’s sponsor.
ExpoForum participated at the EiBTM-2010 exhibition for the events industry, which took place in Barcelona from 29 November to 3 December.
