ExpoForum expands exhibition work in partnership with SCO BC
Plans to host an exhibition entitled СFoodstuffs: the SCO BrandТ in St. Petersburg have been added to the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation Business CouncilТs (SCO BC) programme of events for September 2013. This decision was taken during an SCO BC Secretariat session in Beijing, following a presentation by leading Russian exhibition organiser ExpoForum. The company will organise the event under the aegis of the SCO BC.
Earlier, the ExpoForum office in China was named official representative of the Russian National Secretariat of the SCO BC in matters relating to exhibitions and conventions, and to framework business projects under the auspices of the SCO in China. Specifically, the company will help to launch a project to create convention and exhibition spaces to support SCO activities, or ‘SCO Business Centres’, the first of which is due to open in Shanghai with an investment of USD 1 billion from China. Also on the agenda is the potential for setting up a similar SCO centre in St. Petersburg, Shanghai’s sister city, at the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre.
