Protocol and organizational support

Unique opportunities for signing agreements

Signing agreements at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum offers numerous benefits:


Venue for signing ceremonies and press conferences

With its modern, developed infrastructure, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum press centre can organize turnkey press events at the highest level.

To facilitate the hosting of signing ceremonies and press conferences, the press centre has a number of individual halls designed in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum style and equipped with the necessary sound and video equipment, as well as other technical capabilities to ensure the effective work of media representatives at the event. Furthermore, some halls at the Forum site have been further equipped to organize remote online ceremonies in the case that one of the signing parties cannot be present in person.

The press centre also provides experienced and professionally trained staff for signing ceremonies, which is extremely important for participants given the possible absence at the venue of officials from a company’s protocol service due to the limited number of accreditations provided.

Protocol and organizational support for signing ceremonies and press conferences at the press centre is handled by IQ Protocol, an official contractor of the Roscongress Foundation operating at the Russian Investment Forum, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum and the Eastern Economic Forum. IQ Protocol’s staff have vast experience in managing various kinds of events. The company has successfully handled more than 650 signing ceremonies at the highest level.

Forum participants can purchase protocol and organizational support services for signing ceremonies, either as part of a package including hall rental at the press centre, or as a separate signing ceremony held at a company’s stand.

Signing ceremony point

  3. The point is easily accessible to media representatives and is in plain view, so signings will attract the attention of journalists, photographers, and Forum participants.
  4. A paid slot includes the full package of protocol support for the signing ceremony with the provision of folders for signing, and pens with the Forum logo. The ceremony is supported by professional assistants and a moderator. The point is fully furnished, includes sound equipment, and is designed with St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2021 branding.
  5. If you would like to take advantage of the services offered at the signing ceremony point, please contact the Roscongress Foundation’s press centre.
