2–5 June 2021 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will host the first Creative Business Forum. The purpose of the Forum is to bring together representatives of government and business with the leaders of the creative community. Forum will discuss the development of the industry in Russia and worldwide, as well as try to formulate common objectives and create a platform for a three-way dialogue.
“The year of creative economy is upon us. It is especially important that St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which has become a key platform for dialogue between business and government, will feature a programme that includes leading representatives of creative industries. This sector has been rapidly developing in recent years, attracting considerable investments from leading Russian companies. I am confident that the Creative Business Forum will give an additional impetus to the development of these industries in Russia and will determine the necessary measures of support from the government,” said Anton Kobyakov, Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation, Executive Secretary of the SPIEF Organizing Committee.
The Creative Business Forum will present a plan for the development of the aforementioned industries in Russia, taking into account international best practices and technologies. Experts will provide guidelines for politicians, scientists, and entrepreneurs on how to work with the creative industries and present their ideas and projects. “The programme of the Forum will cover relevant issues: from creation of creative clusters and female entrepreneurship to modern innovative education and attraction of investments into creative economy,” said Elena Marinina, Director of Innosocium Foundation and Creative Business Forum.
The key event of the Creative Business Forum is a talk-show "Why do I need creative industries?" that will be held in the World Cafe format, which is considered to be one of the most effective methods of dialogue. It aims to formulate the relevant definition of both creative industries and creative class, as well as to define their influence on the development of cities, communication platforms, and communities.
Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, a strategic partner of the Creative Business Forum, as well as the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) will host their sessions. Experts will discuss exports and the integration of Russian creative industries into the global economy.
“UNIDO vigorously supports initiatives aimed at diversification and development of new business competences. I am glad that the Creative Business Forum helps to unite people and develop effective solutions for our common sustainable future,” said Sergey Korotkov, Director of the UNIDO Centre for International Industrial Cooperation in the Russian Federation.
Leading experts and practitioners of creative industries will take part in the Forum. Speakers include Sofia Trotsenko, the founder of Vinzavod centre of contemporary art, Ekaterina Cherkes-zade, the director of Universal University for creative industries, Gulnaz Kadyrova, the Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russian Federation, Natalia Komarova, governor of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District, Yuliana Slascheva, Chairman of the Board of Soyuzmultfilm Film Studio, filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov, Aric Chen, Chief Curator of Design Miami, Jovan Jelovac, Director of Belgrade Design Week, Natalia Fishman-Bekmambetova, Advisor to President of Tatarstan, and Alexander Auzan, Dean of the Economics Department of Moscow State University.
Discussions and public lectures of the Creative Business Forum will take place throughout the St. Petersburg Economic Forum in the Building Trust Area. Some of the events will also take place as part of the main SPIEF business programme.
The guest country of this year's SPIEF is Qatar, and the Creative Business Forum will host the Russian-Qatari Cultural Dialogue. The participants include Ms. Fatma Hassan, Chief Executive Officer of the Doha Film Institute, Dr. Ahmad M. Hasna, President of Hamad Bin Khalifa University and others.
“Creative industries are an important driver of demand. They occupy a significant share in the structure of consumption and ensure sustainable development: a balanced approach to the use of resources for the realization of needs. Qatar National Development Strategy pays special attention to the intensive development of the country's economy through knowledge, technology and innovation, when the main factors of production are actually inexhaustible intellectual resources, as opposed to finite natural resources,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Nasser Al-Thani, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the State of Qatar to the Russian Federation.
Creative Business Forum is organized by the Innosocium Foundation, the social platform of the Roscongress Foundation. The Forum is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The intellectual partner of the Forum is EY.
The first Creative Business Forum was held in September 2020 as part of the first Russian Creative Week in Moscow's Gorky Park. INTERNI DESIGNER'S WEEK MILANO was the international partner of the Forum. The event was supported by Design Miami, the Venice Biennale, Art Basel, and Belgrade Design Week. During the three days there were ten sessions, which were attended by over 70 experts: First Deputy Head of Administration of the President of the Russian Federation Sergey Kirienko, Director General of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) Svetlana Chupsheva, TV presenter and journalist Vladimir Pozner, filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov, General Producer of Match TV Tina Kandelaki, and many others.
The Innosocium Foundation, the social platform of the Roscongress Foundation, was established to facilitate the dialogue between business, government, and civil society. The priorities of the Innosocium Foundation are the development of culture, creative industries, education, youth initiatives, women's leadership, and social communications.
