This year will see the launch of the 'Russia Roadshow' - a brand new concept for the Russian Economic Forum, the annual conference which brings over 2000 Russian and international industry CEOs, bankers, investors, journalists, political figures and other key opinion formers to London every April.
Russia and other emerging markets are experiencing unprecedented growth, and are making their presence felt on the world stage as never before. Through the Roadshow, this year's conference will explore opportunities for investing in Russia and the growing importance of Russian investment overseas. Participants in this year's event will be given an in-depth look at the Russian business landscape, sector-by-sector and region-by-region, culminating with a private gala dinner, the Bull and Bear Banquet, on the evening of 22 April.
This event is a must for international investors looking to learn about one of the fastest growing and dynamic economies in the world, and for Russian companies who need to reach leading opinion formers in the global finance and investment community.
The first part of the Roadshow was the Global Investment and Finance Forum, a highly successful conference that Eventica held in Moscow on 10-11 December 2007, where speakers included Russian Deputy Premier and Minister of Finance Alexei Kudrin, Communications Minister Leonid Reiman, Anatoly Chubais (RAO UES), Arkady Dvorkovich (Russian Presidential Administration), Roger Munnings (KPMG), Michael Klein (Citigroup), Chris Gibson-Smith (London Stock Exchange), Alexei Gurin (CentreInvest Group), Ruben Vardanian (Troika Dialog), Oleg Vyugin (MDM) and John Peet (Economist).
