Greeting of the Governor of St.Petersburg, Valentina Matvienko
Dear friends!
I am happy to great the participants, organisers and guests of the Petersburg Technical Fair!
St.Petersburg is the largest industrial and research center of our country. Today our region is the Russian leader in production rates as well as attraction of investments to the real sector of economy. It is notable that our city hosts many industrial exhibitions among the exhibitors of which there are not only successful St.Petersburg enterprises but also largest Russian and international companies.
Petersburg Technical Fair that is held for the third time already stands out among other events. In these years the fair has become an inseparable part of city’s business life and a traditional meeting point for industrial elite of St.Petersburg and Russia. Petersburg Technical Fair is one of the high-priority events of our city. The Exhibition was included to the plan of the Ministry for Industry and Energy and that proves its high significance on the All-Russian and federal levels.
Our city is open for cooperation. It is important that every year the number of Russian and foreign participants of the fair is increasing and that growth is provided by not only interesting exposition, but also by a highly topical business program.
I am confident that the Petersburg Technical Fair will become the venue for demonstration of latest samples of industrial products, foster further development of the real sector of city’s economy and expansion of international relations.
I wish fruitful work and further success in professional activity to the fair participants and pleasant impressions from staying in the city on the Neva River to those who will be visiting St.Petersburg for the first time.

The European Tour of PTFair 2007
In the course of September and October three foreign presentations of the Petersburg Technical Fair were held in Czech Republic, Poland and Sweden within the framework of the International Fair of casting technologies for Metal, the International Mechanical Engineering Exhibition MSV-2006 and the Scandinavian Technical Fair. The organization of the presentation was provided by Restec Exhibition Company.
The Petersburg Technical Fair (13-16 March, Saint Petersburg), which in recent years has become the most interesting industrial event in the North-Western region of the Russian Federation, including its allotted exhibitions "Metallurgy" and "Casting", arouse a keen interest of participants and visitors of the casting fair "Metal" in Poland. Within three days there were held negotiations with more than 150 representatives of metallurgical and casting companies of England, Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Czech Republic. It is pleasant to notice that during the exhibition its sponsors, Targi Kielce company executives, found time for visiting the stand of the Petersburg Technical Fair and conducting negotiations with the Russian delegation. Under the negotiations, they reached an agreement on organization, provided by Targi Kielce company, of Polish national exhibits at the Petersburg Technical Fair and on mutual event information support.
Within the framework of the Scandinavian Technical Fair there were held negotiations with organizers of the fair and participants of the exhibitions about participation of Swedish mechanical engineering and machine tool companies in Saint Petersburg exhibitions. Participation interests and desire to present their productions at the Russian market were also shown by other foreign participants of the events, among them: HUNTER (USA), SZOPIENICE, HUTA BUCZEK è ESAB (Poland), MC-TECH (Italy), MOTUL (Germany).
Members of the fair steering committee also took part in the operation of the most meaningful in Europe mechanical engineering exhibition MSV-2006 in Czech Republic. Negotiations with representatives of the Czech Business Support Agency "CzechTrade" and BVV company (MSV-2006 organizer) confirmed that the exhibitions "Metalworking" and "Tools" were included in the plan of the Czech Department of Industry for rendering government support to Czech companies in taking part in international exhibitions. In this respect, in 2007 within the framework of the Fair a collective exposition of Czech Republic will be organized, and the "Czech Days" event is scheduled to be held in Russia.
We hope that the work done by the delegation of the Petersburg Technical Fair at the most popular European exhibit events will expand the circle of participants and visitors of the Petersburg Technical Fair 2007.

New opportunities for an effective cooperation
Today, the subcontracting model of production becomes the most reasonable one for large-scale enterprises in reaching the decision of production process optimisation. Lots of foreign enterprises are willing to treat the question of transferring a part of production to the territory of Russia. In the first place all this concerns casting production, different types of mechanical treatment and coating process.

In this respect, the Organising Committee declares a new exhibition "Subcontracting North-West" within the framework of the Petersburg Technical Fair open.

In 2007 the profile of the Fair will be supplemented with up-to-date exhibitions, which for the moment are in demand of specialists of all industrial branches.
