As Construction.ru reported via the municipal press service, the first stage of this platform for business and cultural forums was put into operation in 2014. The complex includes three exhibition halls, a congress center, a hotel, a business center, and accompanying infrastructure, including open and underground parking.
In May, the construction of the hotel was completed, although it is necessary to carry out the reconstruction of the St. Petersburg Highway from the turn-off to "Expoforum" to Vitebsk Avenue, to construct the railway tracks towards Vitebsk and to construct a traffic intersection near the Pulkovk River.
According to governor Georgy Poltavchenko, more comfortable conditions will be created for participants and guests of the international economic forum. We will remind you that the First St. Petersburg International Economic Forum took place June 1997 in Tauride Palace. The SPIEF then became annual and traditionally takes place in "Lenexpo" exhibition complex.
