The Forum is traditionally held under the aegis of the Moscow Government (with the personal participation of Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow). This year the event will gather in its venue over 15,000 people (including participants of the Festival): representatives of legislative and executive authorities, the business community, developers and construction companies, the world’s leading architects, experts in urbanism and urban planning, as well as private citizens.

The Festival is the special open programme of the Moscow Urban Forum that comprises a logical continuation of the business programme. It is a platform for meetings between all those who care about urban development, where residents of the Russian capital and a large number of experts will be involved in debate regarding the most important issues. Urban activists will present their initiatives, and expert sociologists, economists and architects will share their visions of the future of cities for discussion.
