Kamchatka Territory will have its own display at the ‘Far East Street’ Exhibition on 2–7 September in Vladivostok. The Exhibition will be hosted by the 6th Eastern Economic Forum organized by the Roscongress Foundation with support from the executive office of the Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.

‘Protect Kamchatka’ is the name and key theme of the pavilion. The region will proudly present its unique tourism, research, logistics, and environmental opportunities, its economic and human potential, as well as its vulnerable nature that needs good care.

«Kamchatka Territory is one of the most promising areas for tourism development. It is a true gem in terms of tourism investment attractiveness. Kamchatka is unique not just for Russia, but on a global scale. Nothing compares to it. Now, we are launching a set of projects aimed at integrated development of tourism in Kamchatka Territory. I am confident we are yet to see more projects of this kind,» noted Yury Trutnev, Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.

The pavilion will be volcano crater shaped, as a volcano is a true symbol of Kamchatka. Its indoor part will present the region’s investment projects — an international airport, a natural gas terminal, and ‘The Three Volcanoes’ park. Visitor will also get to learn more about local environmental projects that aim to preserve biological diversity, as well as the region’s research potential that includes opportunities for launching research missions in Kamchatka and the work of unique research facilities.

«We decided to focus on the investment attractiveness of Kamchatka Territory. We want Kamchatka to present as many tourism, economic, research and energy projects at the Forum as possible. We want investors and businesses to see that we are open for new projects, as this region boasts unique opportunities and endless potential. At the same time, the government is interested in new investments. This is why we are ready to provide our unfailing support to those who invest in developing Kamchatka,» said Governor of Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Solodov.

In particular, the Kamchatka pavilion will have a green energy display that will tell more about the region’s priorities in developing the green energy, such as hydrogen energy, Mutnovskaya Power Plant, the windmill park in the village of Ust-Kamchatsk, and Penzhin Tidal Power Plant.

Forum participants will get to learn more about developing air travel in Kamchatka. The pavilion will have several Mi-8MT helicopter shaped screens that will run themed videos about developing this industry.

Another focus of the pavilion is fishery: sea-farming, fishing and crab fishing, as well as processing. Forum guests and participants will enjoy interactive displays that will update them on the development of this industry in Kamchatka.

Kamchatka’s investment potential will also be presented in a creative fashion. The display will be shaped as a captain’s bridge on a modern vessel. Visitors will use control levers to launch one of the available scripts — the Northern Sea Route or cruises in Kamchatka. Kamchatka’s investment climate will also be presented here: fishery, mining, logistics, and tourism.

The pavilion will present the Centre for rare hunting bird reproduction and preservation that is being developed within the Kamchatka ASEZ. The Centre’s capacity covers reproduction and keeping of 1,000 white gyrfalcons. It will also help preserve rare species of hunting birds. The Kamchatka falconry centre was created with support from the Roscongress Foundation.

The ‘Kamchatka-Style Vacation’ display will tell its guests about the outdoor activities this region is so famous for. Display pedestals will have peepholes visitor will be able to use to watch videos made with action cameras. Viewers will get an opportunity to feel what it is like to drive a dog sled, or to do windsurfing, snowboarding, or mountain climbing.

The outdoor part of Kamchatka’s display will offer more exciting exhibits and events. Thus, guests will get to see an actual model of Lunokhod 1 that was tested in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve in the 1980s. The evening programme will offer films about Kamchatka.

The ‘Far East Street’ Exhibition will be open on 2–7 September. On 2–4 September, it will only be available to Forum participants, while on 5–6 September it will be open to residents of Vladivostok. 7 September will be the social day at the Exhibition — it will be exclusively available to families with multiple children, retirees, veterans, and representatives of youth organizations.
