In the run-up to the New Year celebrations, leading players in the St. Petersburg events industry gathered together for a breakfast meeting to learn about the new package deal on corporate events at the Lenexpo Exhibition Complex.

Representatives of over 15 of the top communications and events agencies in the city, including 4 April, Podegiki, and SPN Ogilvy, were present. According to Svetlana Kogan, Head of the Department of Congresses, Meetings, Events, and Guest Exhibitions, the usual method of paying rental charges for exhibition space, with the final sum dependent on the quantity of services and facilities actually used, makes things very difficult for organisers of corporate events for which budgets have been fixed with clients in advance and must be strictly adhered to. For these clients, a package deal has been devised to allow them to rent space at a fixed rate. The deal for corporate and other non-exhibition events includes the rental charge for a pavilion or room and all other services – security, cleaning, parking and vehicle drop-off area, and so on – based on a fixed price per person.

Andrei Andreev, Director of KARAMEL Catering, ExpoForum’s official catering company serving events at Lenexpo, talked about what his company had to offer. The company, founded in 2011, is now one of the market leaders. It has its own state-of-the-art equipment for catering at all types of events, from coffee breaks to sumptuous official receptions and banquets. KARAMEL Catering can serve up to 3,000 people at a sit-down function, or up to 6,000 at a buffet. In the nine months of this year, the company has organised more than 500 events. As well as hearing about the company’s work, those attending the meeting also had a chance to try the food and experience the service on offer.
