• Congratulations to Etalon, Constructor of EXPOFORUM, on 35th Anniversary!

    Etalon, one of the largest Russian companies in the field of development and construction, celebrates its anniversary.

    Over 35 years in the market, Etalon has built the real estate with a total area of almost 8 million square meters in St. Petersburg and Moscow. It has also implemented projects in other cities. 350,000 Russians have come to own new residential property.

    Etalon Group has special relations with the EXPOFORUM. In 2014, the company built a unique convention and exhibition centre which still arouses admiration of industry’s professionals that come to St. Petersburg. Innovative technologies were used during construction — for the first time in Russia.

    The Church of the Smolensk Icon of the Theotokos was restored on the EXPOFORUM territory. Construction was carried out by original drafts of architect Giacomo Quarenghi’s.

    Currently EXPOFORUM annually holds more than 200 events visited by more than a million residents of St. Petersburg and guests of the city.

  • Metropolitan Varsonofy of St. Petersburg and Ladoga to Officiate a Service in a Church on the EXPOFORUM Territory

    The Church of the Smolensk ‘Hodigitria’ Icon of the Theotokos, or “She who leads the way”, is celebrating its patronal festival on August 10. An all-night vigil will take place the day before.

    The ceremonial service will be led by His Eminence Metropolitan Varsonofy of St. Petersburg and Ladoga. It will take place today, on August 9, starting at 17.00.

    The Church of the Smolensk Icon of the Theotokos is a perfect copy of the cathedral built on the Pulkovo Heights upon the project of Jacomo Quarenghi in 1785, during the reign of Catherine II. In the times of the Greta Patriotic War it was destroyed. When plans regarding construction of the EXPOFORUM were made, a project of the church’s replication upon the original drafts was suggested. Since 2016, services have been held there regularly.
