Forum Sochi 2013

The 7th Sochi International Investment Forum will be held in Sochi on September 26 - 28.

The Sochi International Investment Forum is a modern platform for the constructive dialogue between business and government that is needed for the successful implementation of major investment projects on Russian territory. As part of the program of what is rightly considered to be the country’s main investment event, representatives of the state, business communities and experts address the most pressing issues of economic development in the form of an open discussion.

The XIIth International Investment Forum Sochi will take place on September 26–29, 2013. For the first time in the event’s history, the Forum will be held at the Bolshoi Ice Dome, which is located at the coastal Olympic cluster in Imeretin Valley.

The XIth International Investment Forum Sochi, which was held on September 20–23, 2012, focused on the competitiveness of the economy as a whole and its various sectors in a rapidly changing world. During the Forum, Russian regions and major companies signed 82 agreements to the tune of more than 50 billion rubles (around $1.6 billion).

Last year, the Forum was attended by the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who took part in the plenary session and panel discussions. The Sochi 2012 program included 15 round tables, two briefings, nine panel discussions and a Sberbank business breakfast, seminars, free discussions, regional presentations, negotiations, news conferences and briefings.

More than 7300 people took part in the Forum, including the heads of government agencies, state institutions, leading Russian and international companies, diplomatic missions, prominent industry experts and entrepreneurs from 55 Russian regions and 40 countries.

The Sochi 2012 Forum was covered by more than 1200 journalists. Information support was provided by TV Russia24, ANO TV Novosti (RT), Radio Business FM, World Finance Review, Finetime Ltd (UK), ISR (Austria), Expert, Vedomosti, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, and leading Russian and foreign news agencies.
