CREATING A PAYMENT DOCUMENT
Payment for participation in the Forum is to be made after the Organizing Committee has approved your application for participation and you have received your invitation to SPIEF 2021. After receiving your invitation, we kindly ask participants to confirm participation in the Forum via the Roscongress personal account and only then to proceed with payment for participation.
To pay the participation fee for the Forum, participants should go to the ‘My events’ section of the Roscongress personal account and select SPIEF 2021. Next, go to the ‘Event dashboard’ section and open the ‘Payment’ section, as shown on the chart below.
In this section participants enter the payer’s information and select the payment method (invoice in roubles or bank card for residents of the Russian Federation, or invoice in roubles/US dollars/euros or bank card for non-residents of the Russian Federation). The participant may then select the type of payment document: a participation agreement or invoice/agreement (a single document incorporating both the agreement and invoice for payment).
Please note: when entering the payer’s information, make sure you enter information on the individual or legal entity making the payment.
Changes to payer’s information can only be made via the Roscongress Foundation specialist. The contact information can be found in the Roscongress personal account or by contacting the Forum information centre by phone at +7 (812) 680 0000.

MAKING THE PAYMENT
The participation fee may only be paid by the individual or legal entity indicated as the Client in the participation agreement (invoice/agreement).
To pay by invoice, the payer should contact their bank. Payment may take more than three banking days. When paying by invoice, we also recommend factoring in any commission the bank may charge.
To pay by bank card, the participant should specify their email address in the ‘Confirm payment details’ window in order to receive their electronic payment receipt, then confirm the payment details. The standard online payment form will then open, where participants can enter their bank card details and confirm payment. The name on the bank card must match the payer’s name in the agreement. The payment will go through immediately.
The following bank cards are accepted: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, UnionPay, Diners Club, JCB, and MIR. Payments are made in Russian roubles.
Before proceeding to payment, please make sure that:
- there are sufficient funds on the bank card
- the payer’s bank has not set a one-time transfer amount limit
Should a participant have any questions regarding payment (including if the payment does not go through), they can get in touch with their Roscongress Foundation specialist. The contact information can be found in the Roscongress personal account or by contacting the Forum information centre by phone at +7 (812) 680 0000.
The payment date will be considered to be the day on which the amount due is credited to the account of the Roscongress Foundation. The participant may check whether the sum has been received in the Roscongress personal account or by calling the Roscongress Foundation specialist.
Please note that payment of the participation fee on time and in full is a prerequisite to receiving a participation badge and gaining access to the SPIEF 2021 venue.
