Big Media Communication Forum runs on May 12-14 together with the most reputable specialized exhibition Sviaz-Expocomm

13 / 04 / 2015

From May 12 through 14 Expocentre Fairgrounds hosts the first Big Media Communication Forum as part of the Sviaz-Expocomm 2015 exhibition which is a major event in the telecom industry. The Forum is organized by the Russian Association for Electronic Communications (RAEC) and Expocentre ZAO.

RAEC and Expocentre joined their efforts to make this important three-day event which naturally complements the trade show.

We believe that since 2015, the year when the Forum is first organized, the joint May event (Sviaz-Expocomm + Media Communication Forum) will be the main annual project in the Russian communication industry, telecom sector, high technologies, and the Internet.

The Forum will run during three days. It will be divided into five sections (in different halls) to make the most of one of Expocentre’s pavilions. This format will enable each visitor to change the sections and monitor the sought-after speakers.

Sergey Plugotarenko, RAEC Director and the Forum Organizer says, “It is the first time that RAEC organizes such a large scale Forum striving to make the event interesting as it is even more attractive. Consulting the leading industry leaders, the Forum Committee will choose the most interesting speakers presenting new cases studies which have not been published anywhere before the Forum. I hope the participants will do it justice. Well, see you in May!”

Head of the Sviaz-Expocomm project Anna Kosheleva adds, “Today the International Exhibition for Telecommunications, Control Systems, IT and Communication Services Sviaz-Expocomm 2015 is the most reputable trade show in the IT and telecom sectors. That is why the joint organization of the Media Communication Forum is a natural action to create a respected platform to discuss the current trends and the industry challenges.”

According to the Organizing Committee estimates, 5 000 participants will attend the three-day Big Media Communication Forum. It is planned to run about 50 business related events and dozens of non-program and promo events.

Terms of participation: participation is chargeable for all groups of business participants and free of charge for certain groups of participants (e.g. speakers, partners, representatives of media and relevant government agencies, and students of specialized universities).
