Russia House in Davos increases number of meeting venues
The Russia House, Russia’s official residence in Davos, Switzerland, will open its doors on 21–25 January 2019. This Roscongress Foundation project has become an annual international platform for meetings and dialogue between partners on key issues of economic, cultural, scientific, and technical cooperation.
“In January of this year, the organizers of the Russia House in Davos had an important task: to draw attention to our country. For the first time the Russia House functioned as an official Russian residence and welcomed over 1000 guests from 60 different countries, as well as more than 120 media representatives. The Russia House hosted over 50 business events and panel sessions. We urgently need to unite the international community which is ready for cooperation in accordance with the long-term and fundamental interests of modern civilization. The results of the work of the Russia House have shown it to be effective and relevant to Russian and international business. The work of the official Russian residence is a continuation of the collaboration begun at two global events: the World Economic Forum and the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum,” said Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation.
All the right conditions for a comfortable stay have been created for guests of the Russia House: two conference rooms for business programme participants, several rooms for meetings with business partners, an art space, and a lounge area for relaxation.
“In 2018, the Russia House received over 1,000 guests, and hosted more than 50 business events, round tables, and panel sessions. This year our task is not only to preserve, but also to increase the dynamics of partner interaction. The venue has therefore been set up to provide the right conditions for these events. A decision was taken to increase the space for business negotiations and meetings, because the project is of great interest both to representatives of the Russian side and to international delegations,” said Alexander Stuglev, Chairman and CEO of the Roscongress Foundation.
According to Alexander Stuglev, in 2019, as is the tradition, interesting and educational events will be held as part of the project in order to give guests of the Russia House a taste of the rich traditions of Russian culture. The business programme will focus on development trends in the modern economy, the digitalization of space, issues of Russia's competitiveness, and much more.

About the Russia House project in Davos
The project is a platform for promoting Russian initiatives among the representatives of international business and official circles meeting in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum (21–25 January 2019). The result of many years of cooperation between the Roscongress Foundation and the World Economic Forum International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation was the signing of a memorandum of cooperation at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2017. The Russia House received the status of an official Russian residence in the same year.
The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, exhibitions, and public events.
The Roscongress Foundation was founded in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential and strengthening the country’s image by organizing international conventions, exhibitions, and public events. The Foundation develops substantive content for such events, providing companies and organizations with advice, information, and expert guidance, and offering comprehensive evaluation, analysis, and coverage of the Russian and global economic agendas. It offers administrative services and promotional support for business projects and helps to attract investment, including in the form of public-private partnerships.
Today, its annual programme includes events held from Montevideo to Vladivostok, offering an opportunity to bring together global business leaders, experts, the media, and government officials in one place, creating favourable conditions for dialogue and the promotion of new ideas and projects, and assisting in the creation of social enterprise and charity projects.
