TIF-Helexpo has signed a cooperation agreement with the Roscongress Foundation, one of the largest congress and financial & social event organisers in Russia. In fact, the agreement was signed by the President of TIF-Helexpo, Mr Tassos Tzikas, and the CEO of the Roscongress Foundation, Mr Alexander Stuglev, during the St Petersburg International Economic Forum, which is organised by the Russian organisation and was held this year from 1 to 3 June. TIF-Helexpo was the guest of honour at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum, which is held under the auspices of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

On the occasion of the signing of the agreement, the two sides discussed the possibility of TIF-Helexpo organising a national participation at the 2018 St Petersburg International Economic Forum, with the participation of Greek businesses interested in the Russian market. They also explored the possibility of holding a joint economic forum in Thessaloniki on Eurasian cooperation, while they also discussed how the Roscongress Foundation could act as a ‘bridge’ for the participation of Russian businesses in TIF-Helexpo trade exhibitions.
