The Venue

The EXPOFORUM convention and exhibition center is the main venue for ICM-2022. It has already hosted top-level international events such as the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. 

  • The main venue includes: Three pillar-free exhibition pavilions F, G, H each of which can be transformed into a comfortable congress hall of any size up to 8,600 participants with modern sound, light, and projection systems suitable even for film screenings and concerts.
  • We guarantee that the opening ceremony will be held in one modern comfortable hall of exactly the needed size and will be conducted by the head of state.
  • There is an adequate modular space for parallel sessions of up to 10,000 people. This space can be transformed with sound-proof mobile partitions. All rooms are equipped with modern sound and video systems and can be fitted with blackboards.
  • We guarantee adequate space for all sections, with room size quickly scaled up or down if needed.
  • Ample cloakrooms and registration areas are located on the first floor.

  • There is a broadband Wi-Fi access throughout the ExpoForum, as well as a multi-zone and multi-channel public announcement system.

  • We will organize in the passages and one of the exhibition pavilions a large number of food stations to avoid lines during the breaks.
