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 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.
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.
