This year we are introducing a new dimension – Conference Culture 5.0, which will be a series of professional debates exploring boundaries of contemporary culture and its influence on business, science, technologies and society development.

Within the panel discussion «Culture as a Boost for Public and Private Development» we will focus on development of regions and territories through collaboration with cultural institutions and will answer the question, «why cultural activities and integration of cultural infrastructure is the winning strategy for progress purposes».
