UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 30, 2019. 1,500 people are expected to visit the 4th Russian Cities 2020/Project Territory Forum in Yekaterinburg, Head of Yekaterinburg Council’s Department of Economics Alexei Pryadeyin said at a recent press conference.

According to Pryadeyin, the venue has changed from Yeltsin Center to the Hyatt Hotel this year.

‘The forum covered two plenary sessions and sixteen separate sections last year. This year, we are planning on three plenary sessions and around thirty separate sections. About 1,000 people came to the event last year, whereas this year, the expected number of visitors is 1,500, with 300 to 500 speakers,’ Pryadeyin said.

Now the nationwide Russian Cities 2020 Forum is a platform for coming up with practical solutions that help create and implement urban development strategies for towns and constituencies; for launching efficient urban development programs; and for ensuring interaction between the government authorities, the members of the business community, the academia, the general public, the media, and the younger generation.
