Why Saint Petersburg?

It is no coincidence that for the biggest educational event in the world we have chosen St. Petersburg — the cultural capital and a modern business center, where international events are held annually.

Three centuries ago, this city has arisen as a symbol of the common historical path of Russia and Europe. Here, at the junction of two civilizations, great ideas were born for centuries. The Northern capital presented the best thinkers in culture, art, social sciences to our country and to the world. We continue this tradition and decided to gather all those who want to learn how to think globally at the best site of St. Petersburg.

Venue
Gazprom Arena

Gazprom Arena is the most visited indoor stadium in Eastern Europe, second only to the famous Wembley in London. The main feature of the project — a sliding roof, which allows you to carry out activities in a comfortable environment at any time of the year and in all weather conditions.

Large capacity, modern technical equipment, and two-tier parking make Gazprom Arena one of the best venues for major festivals, exhibitions and business conferences.

Travel support
Synergy Travel will help to make your trip to St. Petersburg comfortable and memorable. Our experts organize flights, transfers, hotel accommodation, personal excursions, and other entertainment. Give yourself an unforgettable weekend in the northern capital of Russia!
