Most of these new employees, who number 120 people, will work in ExpoForum's directorate of conventions and exhibitions. This directorate will have a total of 9 departments responsible for organising the company's own events, as well as guest exhibitions, conventions and other events. In addition, they will include the departments for marketing and development, advertising, sales coordination and international promotion.
