About the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum

SPIEF has been held since 1997, and since 2006 it has taken place under the auspices of the President of the Russian Federation, who has also attended each event. 

The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2021 will be the first major convention and exhibition event to be held in person in Russia and worldwide since the outbreak of the pandemic.

The SPIEF Organizing Committee will make every effort to ensure that the event is held in full compliance with safety measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus infection, in accordance with World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines.

More information is available in the COVID-19 safety measures section.

Russia’s development, simply by virtue of its size, history, culture, human potential, and economic opportunities cannot take place outside the global context. [...] We are grateful to our guests for their attention and friendly attitude to Russia and their willingness for business cooperation that always rests on pragmatism, understanding of mutual interests and, of course, trust in each other, as well as frankness and clear-cut positions. [...] We invite all of you to take part in this large-scale and equitable cooperation. 

Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation

SPIEF is attended by top executives and heads of major Russian and international companies, representatives of government agencies, official foreign delegations, leading global media outlets, non-profit organizations, and the expert community.
