About Forum

The 9th annual VTB Capital “RUSSIA CALLING!” Investment Forum will be held 24-26 October 2017 in Moscow.

VTB Capital’s RUSSIA CALLING! is a unique global event that brings together policy makers, investors and business figures to promote dialogue, and encourages strategic investment into Russia’s economy.

The high-level dialogue at RUSSIA CALLING! helps to create conditions that enable Russian companies to continue performing well in global markets, as well as laying the groundwork for multinational companies to invest in Russia.

The plenary session is always attended by the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, who delivers the Investment Forum’s keynote speech. The agenda also includes a number of panel sessions with senior government officials, executives of major international corporations, as well as leading Russian businesses.

The Forum consistently attracts the attention of the international business community. Last year's Forum was attended by a record number of participants from across the globe, drawing in total more than 2,000 delegates, including 500 investors from Russia, Europe, US, Asia, Middle East and Africa.

In 2013-2016 VTB Capital received several recognitions for its annual "RUSSIA CALLING!" Investment Forum, winning multiple accolades at the Communicate Magazine (UK) Corporate & Financial Awards, IPRA Golden World Awards, the prestigious awards of the International Public Relations Association and also was voted #1 Pan European Broker Conference by Extel Survey.
