Our Venue

The ExpoForum international convention and exhibition center is the official operator of the ICM. It opened its doors to visitors in 2014, hosting business and cultural events of all shapes and sizes, and it has been the venue for high-profile events such as the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

ExpoForum’s award-winning spaces house everything a modern congress needs, including two on-site hotels, a variety of restaurants and an excellent catering service, a press center, a medical center, and more. It is equipped with state-of-the-art systems for sound, projection, registration, broadband Wi-Fi, visitor control, fire prevention, and ventilation. The catering service is experienced in serving people with many different dietary restrictions and needs.

All ICM participants will be able to attend the opening ceremony of the ICM. The hall where the opening ceremony will take place is large enough to accommodate well over 8,000 people, so no overflow space will be needed.

Getting to the Venue

Those not staying at the on-site hotels will have no difficulty getting to ExpoForum by special shuttle buses, public transportation, or taxi.

There will be frequent shuttles from ExpoForum to the nearest subway station. Regular shuttle buses with the ICM logo will run between ExpoForum, major hotels, and the city center.

Public transit will be made free for all ICM participants. When taking a car or taxi, the newly constructed Western High-Speed Diameter soaring high above the ground cuts the trip to Vasilyevsky Island to about 30 minutes. In July, the city traffic is light.
