Sverdlovsk business leaders discuss expo plans for 2015

The Sverdlovsk regional government recently held a meeting with development officials to discuss their plans for 2015 business expositions.

Alexei Orlov, minister of investment and development, said the region is responsible for hosting five or six major events each year, such as INNOPROM and Deutsche Messe.

Another area of rapid growth is IEC's Yekaterinburg Expo, which helps increase the area’s revenues. In 2013, it earned over $740,000, and in 2014, it raised more than $3 million. IEC is set to host 15 events in 2015.

Thanks to expos such as INNOPROM and the Yekaterinburg Expo, the region has seen a rise in tourism, grants and local economic activity. These increases, as well as heightened investment activity, have greatly benefited the Sverdlovsk region.

The meeting’s attendees also developed a budget for the events the area will host in 2015. They are excited about the prospect of further growth in the area in many industries and even hope the good news will encourage the growth of small- and medium-size businesses.
