The activities of the joint exhibition in the pavilion demonstrated the correlation of projects and ideas – technical and engineering products and services directed at improving lives in megatropoles, using and developing energy – and eco friendly technology were presented as an essential point of modern life. The general square of the exhibition is 1,005m2. There were participants from more than 20 companies from St. Petersburg, Moscow, Rybinsk, Kurgan, Perm, Orel, Belgorod, Ekaterinburg, Kotelnikoy and other cities.

The business program of the exhibition-congress “HCS of Russia” in the forum “Ecology of a metropolis”, is a unique platform for solving many questions: the protection of the environment in surrounding cities, exploitation of the housing fund and engineering system, successful practical execution of capital repairs, innovative approaches to automation. In the complex, 11 events were held, within the framework of congress parts.
One of the most discussed themes became addressing the waste from industry and consumption – experts literally discussed the current situation and perspectives on development of the system from beginning to end, trying to find a general compromise.
“It is desirable that regional powers accept responsibility in full and credibility of the territorial data schemes with a view to reimbursing regional operators for lost profit from the use of this data in calculating their finance model”, – Sergei Sanne expressed a hope for a regional general organisation “EKOS”.
The main thing from the meeting “Topical questions on cleaning sewage water in objects of transport” was the famous quote from Anton Pavlovich Chekhov: “something is clean, not when it has been cleaned, but when it was never dirty!”.
A different path was taken by participants of the conference “Ecology of a towns surroundings: successful experience in solving the problem of ecology in Europe’s capitals. Practical applications for RF”. They discussed the popularisation of ecological consciousness, in particular amongst the young generation, by means of art, use of fashion collections, creative videos and direct dialogue with businesses. A high energy efficiency of residential buildings – mainly for the comfort of residents. The experts, gathered in the conference Organisation of energy efficient capital repairs”, which looked at the problem of industries and embodied in the life rushed cases, came to this conclusion.
The overt interest of listeners was raised by the session “Digitalisation of HCS. Management of multiple-apartment homes. Atomisation of the process in management companies, RSO and RKC” Aleksei Bondarev, the general director of LLC “Decast”: “This theme raises many questions and arguments. Even the term “smart” meters – everyone has their own understanding in connection to an absence of clear GOSTs for data production, –the speaker highlighted. –In Europe appliances accounted already for a longtime connected to a wireless system of data collection, but the collection of users is produced internally. In Russia various protocols are also used to collect data, wherein the next step in automation is already being introduced – placed automatic base stations are being placed in homes, with the ability to collect data from a meter and pass it on to the correct company”.
In its turn, a partner of the forum, “Ecology of megatropolis”, the company EcoStandard group, (Moscow) ran two interactive programs: “People in the megatropolis. Ecological aspects to life in the big city” and “Healthy spaces for live and work”. Under the aegis of the International specialisation of the exhibition “HCS Russia” the Centre of business contacts” functioned, where large companies and customers, interested in new supplies of trade and services, useful for industry HCS, participated. Amongst the participants: TheCommittee for landscaping St. Petersburg, the Fund of foreign and educational program groups “POCNANO”, housing agencies, management companies in St. Petersburg, Kazan, Veliky Novgorod, Izhevsk, Novocheboksarsk, construction companies and regional housing companies of service in St. Petersburg. In the end there were more than 700 partitions. The event received high marks both on the side of suppliers, and on the side of potential buyers of HCS.
It is worth noting that parallel with XVI International exhibition-congress “HCS of Russia”, the exhibition “Ecology of a big city” and forum “Ecology of a metropolis” in Expoforum, the St. Petersburg technical market, international exhibition of innovation HI-TECH and St Petersburg’s industry congress were also held.
