Moscow deemed reasonably safe for public events
Once the quarantine restrictions have been uplifted, the aviation community is eager to meet off-line to network and seek common solutions
According to Russia’s public safety oversight authority Rospotrebnadzor, Moscow, among other Russian cities, has been deemed a safe location for holding mass events so far. The levels of coronavirus disease rate are under control, with numerous biological safety measures in place.
After several months in isolation the aviation community is taking the chance to network off-line once again. There have been several important industry events since easing restrictions in mid-Summer. State -supported Army-2020, defense technology exhibition held in late August was followed by a more commercial HeliRussia 2020, country’ largest helicopter trade show in mid-September. Some international presence was provided by foreign companies headquartered in Moscow. However, RUBAE 2020 Russian business aviation convention had to be cancelled, because it largely relies on international exhibitors.
International air travel to and from Russia is being gradually restored on country-by- country basis. It is currently open with the Great Britain, Switzerland, Turkey, UAE, Egypt, the Maldives, Tanzania and South Korea. Passport holders of these countries are eligible for obtaining Russian visa and visiting the country.
The next significant industry-wide event offering networking and face-to-face communication opportunities is 13th International conference Aircraft Financing & Leasing, Russia & CIS 2020. The conference will be held in Moscow on October 27, followed by Wing of the Future 2020 forum (November 11-12).
This is the first air transport event after the pandemic held by ATO Events off-line. “All the capabilities are in place in Moscow for safe face-to-face communication, and all possible measures are taken. Everything is done to bring back all of the advantages of business and informal networking, which has always been one of the strongest aspects of off-line events,” the organizer commented.
At the same time, the new capabilities have been explored and used as well: the conference will be broadcast on-line with the interactive options. This will expand the conference audience and bring together international participants despite today’s complicated situation.
