Vice-Governor of Saint Petersburg O.A. Kazanskaia
I welcome the participants, guests and organizers of the St. Petersburg International Health Forum. This major event of the exhibition industry in Russia is the result of cooperation of four leading organizers of congresses and exhibitions: ExpoForum CJSC, Messe Düsseldorf Moscow LLC, Man and His Health Trans-Regional NGO and Primexpo LLC. They have united their efforts to create the single site for professionals in the field of health in St. Petersburg, where one can organize special exhibitions, scientific, practical and business events affecting all branches of medicine. The strategic aim of the project is to provide a comprehensive cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary approach to the development of the health industry in our country.
The scientific support of the Forum is provided by the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. I wish the participants and guests to get a new practical and theoretical knowledge, to hold interesting discussions and to feel the warm atmosphere of friendly meetings with the benevolent residents of St. Petersburg. Welcome to the St. Petersburg International Health Forum!
Deputy Minister of industry and trade G.V. Kalamanov
The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation supports the congress and exhibition project of a new format, the St. Petersburg International Health Forum. The concept of the project involves the creation of professional demonstrational and communicative site in the North-Western region of Russia for accelerating the development of the modern health industry. Modernization of health care in the Russian Federation is inextricably connected with the development of the medical and pharmaceutical industries. I recommend all the creators of scientific production and technological base, manufacturers of medical devices, drugs and other products for special purposes, providers of medical and health services to demonstrate the results of their work to the representatives of authorities, scientists and medical workers in various fields, specialists of infrastructural organizations.
Executive Vice-President, Chairman of the commission for health industry of the Russian Union of industrialists and entrepreneurs V.M. Cherepov
The government of the Russian Federation has set the task to form a powerful sector of bioindustry in Russia, to elaborate educational and research facilities, to raise the interest of business community to the transfer of biotechnological developments. At the St. Petersburg International Health Forum much attention will be paid to biomedicine, biopharmaceuticals, food and ecological biotechnologies. Familiarization of the health industry professionals with them, further commercialization of scientific developments, presented in the exhibition and during presentations, of course, will have a positive impact on improving the living standards of population.
Chief Therapist of the Health Committee of St. Petersburg government, Vice-Rector for Clinical Services of North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.mechnikov, RAMS V.I. Mazurov
The St. Petersburg International Health Forum is an extremely relevant and timely event for the medical community, as well as for educational and scientific medical institutions in the North-Western federal district of Russia. The representatives of practical health care have waited for such a large congress and exhibition health care event for a long time. Consolidation of the large exhibition companies with manufacturers of medical devices, pharmaceutical goods, rehabilitation equipment and experts in the field of medical and health-improvement services will allow to present a multidisciplinary exhibition with international participation to a wide range of practitioners in the North-Western region of Russia. The encouraging fact is the formation of a new section – Biomedicine – by the organizers. The representatives of health authorities, scientific and educational medical institutions and medical practitioners will be able to see the up-to-date developments of manufacturers, to discuss the latest scientific achievements in the field of health care and to share experiences with colleagues from other countries. I wish the organizers and participants of the St. Petersburg International Health Forum a successful work, constructive dialogue and fruitful cooperation!

I, as a practitioner, welcome the holding of a medical forum in St. Petersburg. Especially I want to highlight the intention of the organizers to collect all branches of medicine, including pharmacy, services and health resort treatment in Russia and abroad. To my mind this Forum will be interesting for the specialists in Saint Petersburg.

Market development prospects of northwest RF
Experts believe the market potential for medical technology in Russia will reach 16 billion USD by 2020 – this would be more than quadruple the current market volume (2010: 3.900 million USD).
Hospitals, especially, still have a considerable investment backlog, which promises interna- tional suppliers an enormous potential for years to come.
The fields of nuclear medicine, therapy equipment, labora- tory diagnostics, telemedicine and neurosurgery are predicted to have particularly fast growth rates.
Strategic programs of St. Petersburg and North-Western Russia have been adopted and are now being implemented for the national project «Health» to develop primary, preven- tive and high-tech medical care. The city has more than 100 hospitals, 400 outpatient facilities, 32 research institutes, 5 universities, 10 medical colleges.
