ExpoForum leased the Lenexpo Exhibition Complex
On 1 Nov. 2011, according to a decision ratified by an extraordinary meeting of shareholders, ExpoForum JSC leased the Lenexpo Exhibition Complex until 2014.
The agreement was made with the complex’s owner, Lenexpo JSC. ExpoForum is the successor of Lenexpo under all agreements related to the organisation of exhibitions. After the opening of the ExpoForum congress and exhibition center in 2014, events will be held at this new venue.
"Our goal is to guarantee the gradual transition from the existing venue to a new one, and also to create an effective business process for managing the complex, where we will organise both our own, as well as guest events,'' said ExpoForum general director, Anatoly Erkulov. ''For the remaining two years before the opening of the new convention and exhibition centre, our task is to improve services offered at the complex for participants, exhibition visitors, and delegates to convention events.’’
ExpoForum JSC will take part in the EIBTM 2011 exhibition, which will be held from November 29 to December 1 in Barcelona, Spain. The company's stand number will be presented at the joint stand of the Russian Federation (i550).
Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee and Georgy Poltavchenko, Governor of St. Petersburg took part today in the celebrations dedicated to launching the construction of the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre in St. Petersburg.
In November the number of personnel at ExpoForum JSC increased three-fold due to its merger with Lenexpo JSC, which organises events at the exhibition complex of the same name.
On 2 November ExpoForum JSC acquired Lenexpo's entire portfolio of exhibitions, making it now the largest St. Petersburg exhibition organiser.
