LONDON, July 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
PR Newswire, the global leader in innovative communications, marketing solutions and commercial news and content distribution, was proud to be the event's Official News Distribution Partner for the 5th year running.
The leading international annual event, now in its 20th year, focused on economic and business issues. It has become a key discussion platform for issues facing Russia, emerging markets and the world as a whole.
SPIEF attracted thousands of international and Russian participants, including government and business leaders from the emerging economic powers, as well as leading global voices from academia, the media, and civil society. Special guest status was awarded to Italy this year, and Prime Minister Matteo Renzi attended the Forum.
PR Newswire's role at the Forum was to provide news distribution and wire services to those attending and in particular to those wanting to raise their profile and disseminate their messages across Russia and the rest of the world.
According to Roscongress Foundation head, Alexander Stuglev, close collaboration between the organisations is of major significance for information coverage and promotion of Forum events:
"Our partners gain access to the latest and exclusive content, meaning that the public both in Russia and abroad get to know about the events, key economic and political topics discussed before and during SPIEF 2016 and the opinions of the experts on them".
Alexandre Bykov, Director of Strategic Investor Relations, PR Newswire EMEA and India, said:
"It is a great honour to work in a close partnership with the Forum. We have a strong distribution network across Russia and beyond so are very well placed to communicate the news and views from those attending. News on the events held under the Roscongress Foundation reach the widest possible audience around the globe."
