You can familiarize yourself with the terms of the quota system (maximum number of participants from any one company) and the participation fees in the Participants section of the website.

  • ACCREDITATION
    • What is accreditation, and what are participant badges?

      Due to the security measures in place at the business and cultural programme event locations (Lomonosov Northern (Arctic) Federal University, the Arkhangelsk Lomonosov Drama Theatre, and other venues), all participants must be issued with an accreditation badge.

      The badge is a pre-programmed proximity card, a unique key linked to the participant’s information in the Forum’s database. The badge contains the following data about the holder: name and surname (in Latin characters), organization, category, level of access, Forum logo, photograph, and universal attributes.

      Accreditation badges are issued to specific individuals and are not transferable. You should keep your badge and ID with you at all times during the Forum. Your badge is the only document confirming your accreditation which can be used at event venues.

    • How do I collect my badge?

      Participants can collect their badge by visiting one of the accreditation points.

      In order to be issued with a badge, participants must present the same document used to register on the Forum website (usually a passport).
