400 young presidents to meet in Moscow

The 2018 Young Presidents' Organization Conference will be held in the Russian capital for the first time – announces the Moscow Convention and Exhibition Bureau.

The high-profile business event will bring together over 400 international company heads on 5-4 May, 2018. Attracting the YPO Conference to Moscow was a joint effort between the Moscow Convention bureau and Meetings & Incentives Worldwide – the international PCO with a track record of over 2,200 events held in 70 countries.

“400 regional and multinational company leaders in Moscow – the effect of this meeting is hard to overestimate. With a prodigious concentration of executive brainpower in the crucial geopolitical spot that Moscow is, almost any contact can potentially mean big international projects with Russian participation, which, in turn, might bring substantial financial and promotional benefits to our city. The Moscow of today is a major Eurasian business hub, and being selected to host the Young Presidents’ Organization Conference is a clear indication that the international community sees the immense business opportunities that our capital has to offer,” points out Tatiana Anisimova, the Moscow Convention Bureau CEO.

Founded in 1950, the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) is a global network of young chief executives with approximately 24,000 members in more than 130 countries. The Organization’s influence and reputation can be backed by figures: the aggregated annual revenue of the companies run by YPO members amounts to around $6 trillion, while they summarily employ up to 15 million people worldwide.

The Conference organizers explain the objectives of the Moscow agenda: “This particular program aims to educate by demystifying and unraveling the intrigue that so often surrounds Russia, its history, culture and future. The aim is to develop a deep Understanding of Russia by going beyond and challenging the conventional stereotype and preconceptions so often conjured up when thinking of Russia.”
