International Arctic Forum 2019

The Organizing Committee of the ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ 5th International Arctic Forum decided to relocate the Forum, which is to be held on 9–10 April 2019, from Arkhangelsk to the ExpoForum Exhibition and Convention Centre in St. Petersburg.

The decision was made on a meeting in Moscow on 17 January chaired by Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev.

The decision is based on the need to accommodate a larger number of guests and participants at the Forum than in 2017 as well as the inability of Arkhangelsk’s hotel infrastructure to handle the growing demand.
