ProxyCentre’s professionals are actively involved in operating the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) launched in Vladivostok on 6 September. The Company provides for accreditation of the EEF participants and runs the Operations Control Centre, which manages the entire vehicle fleet involved in the event.
Well in advance of the event, ProxyCenter’s staffers trained accreditation operators and set up four accreditation points: at the Forum’s main venue at the Far Eastern Federal University (opened on 23 August), at the International Trade Centre in Moscow (opened on 28 August), and at Vladivostok International Airport and the Hotel Hyundai (opened on 1 September).
Accreditation points will be in operation until the Forum closes. They also serve as information desks where EEF participants and guests may obtain exhaustive information about the event.
During preparations for the EEF, ProxyCentre coordinated the work of the contractors that set up and operated the Forum’s main venue, the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University on Russky Island. Several hundred companies were involved in preparing for the Forum. ProxyCentre’s staffers liaised between subcontractors, monitored the quality of their work and schedule compliance.
The Eastern Economic Forum is among the biggest annual business events in Russia and Asia Pacific.
At the first day of the EEF, 10 agreements worth RUB 1.16 trillion were signed on the Forum’s sidelines. The biggest agreement was signed by the Far East Development Corporation (FEDC) and Eastern Petrochemical Company.
