ExpoForum presents strategy for Russian-Swedish convention
ExpoForum will be taking part in the Russian-Swedish Modern Exhibition Technology and Software Convention, which is to be held in Stockholm from 10Ц11 April 2013. Participants will discuss current issues and key trends in the development of the exhibition sector.
Leading players from the convention and exhibition industries in both countries have been invited to take part in this international event, which has been organised by the Russian Trade Mission in Sweden. It will take the form of a workshop, which will not only give participants the chance to showcase their professional capabilities, but also allow them to share their experience of organising events, and to make new business contacts. In particular, Swedish participants will learn about the new convention facilities that will be available in St. Petersburg as a result of the opening in 2014 of the modern, multifunctional, European-standard ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The main objectives of the Russian-Swedish Convention will be to develop bilateral business tourism, share experience of using the latest technology in exhibition and trade fair activities, and exchange information on exhibition software for exhibitors.
Increasing the capacity of Pulkovo Airport and the construction of the new Convention and Exhibition Centre are key current factors in the development of St. Petersburg.
