A cocktail in So Sofitel – back to basics

Prior to the business program of the fifth anniversary ABT-ACTE Russia Saint Petersburg Business Travel Forum, on the evening of August 23 a welcome cocktail for corporate buyers, agencies and forum partners will be held in SO Sofitel St Petersburg.

The choice of this venue can be explained not only by convenient location. It is symbolic to have a cocktail in So Sofitel: the welcome event of the first ACTE forum in St. Petersburg took place in W Hotel. Now So Sofitel is located here. This year the cocktail will be held on a glass terrace of the hotel overlooking St. Isaac's Cathedral – one of the central points of interest of the city.

The traditional reception will allow the participants to talk to each other in an informal atmosphere. During the evening event, the guests will also have an opportunity to inspect the new hotel: the personnel will acquaint the visitors with the guest room inventory of the hotel and its event facilities. "The hotel has been designed by the Italian designer Antonio Citterio. The famous Fabergé egg was the source of inspiration for him: hotel interior reveals the mysteries of the house of Fabergé in a contemporary manner. Unique lamps made of the real 24 carat Ortenzia Very Very Gold, installations made of frozen acrylic by masterful Jacopo Foggini – all these details create the image of a jewel-box", So Sofitel representatives say.

The business part of the event – the educational conference – will be held on August 24 in Courtyard by Mariott St. Petersburg Center West Pushkin Hotel.
