Tashir Group to Become General Partner of MUF 2017
Tashir Group will traditionally participate in Moscow Urban Forum 2017 and will act as the General Partner of the event.
This year, the forum will be held between July 6 and July 12 on the new Moscow site – Exhibition of Economic Achievements (VDNKh). Moscow Urban Forum 2017 will be the biggest event throughout the seven-year history and will bring together several formats: business program, city festival, the biggest Russian developer exhibition and experimental laboratories. The MUF-17 topic “Age of Agglomerations. Rethinking the World Map” provokes discussion about the development of the world’s largest cities, their impact on the adjacent territories, and the essential growth of agglomerations as the main driver of national and global economies.
The Forum will involve approximately 400 speakers of whom over 150 are foreign experts.
Igor Bulatov, First Vice President of Tashir Group: “The Group has been supporting the Moscow Urban Forum for seven years, and this year is no exception. A systematic and steady approach to running responsible business throughout the entire period has proven that it is important to participate in the main national urban event. Today, we are starting the countdown before the new Forum and, therefore, to the beginning of vital discussions and dialog that would determine the agenda of development of modern cities”.
It is the seventh time running that Tashir will participate in the Moscow Urban Forum. The Forum topic selected this year is a burning issue for the Group, which is actively involved in the development of Moscow’s infrastructure.

The Group will present to the Forum visitors a stand displaying projects of Moscow transport interchange hubs and other facilities.
