Business tourism is an important part of contemporary corporate culture, and mixing business with pleasure is a must for anyone who values their time, money and health.

Business meetings are held in Sochi all year round: leaders of state, heads of government agencies, directors of leading companies, representatives of the banking sector, journalists, scientists, tourism workers, pharmacists, designers, perfume makers, transport workers, oil and gas workers... the list goes on.

In business circles, Sochi’s reputation as one of Russia’s top business centers is firmly established.  The city is warm and sunny and its modern infrastructure complements its beautiful setting.  There are numerous tourist attractions and it is not difficult for organisers to supplement their business program with cultural, entertainment or even recreational events. However, it is not just nature and weather that makes Russia’s main resort an ideal platform for holding business events of any scale. 

Sochi has convenient transport links by air, rail and sea, along with possibly the best roads in Russia.

The resort has everything you need for holding business events of various sizes and levels of complexity. The range of well-equipped venues includes both VIP-rooms for private meetings and conference rooms outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment. Today, Sochi can offer business tourists more than 30 modern conference rooms in hotels, health resorts and business centers. The Main Media Center of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi Olympic Park is an excellent new venue for large-scale business events.

No less important is the fact that the city has already developed a class of qualified personnel with experience in holding events of any size and level – from corporate meetings to international forums, and from festivals to sporting events. There are also experienced organisers whose services can be used for staging exhibitions, shows and presentations of various types: Sochi-Expo, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (TPP) and SOUD-Sochi Exhibitions. Presently, Sochi’s conference halls and congress centers can accommodate more than 20,000 people at a time.

Another argument in favour of choosing Sochi as the venue for a business event is a unique audience that includes both residents and tourists from all over the country. Any presentation that takes place in Sochi may be regarded as a national event!
