The Inside World Football Moscow Forum will bring together for the first time the key players involved in the 2018 FIFA World Cup – the local Organising Committee, the Candidate Host Cities and Russian football governing bodies – with a wide range of international specialists.

Held at Moscow's prestigious Ritz–Carlton Hotel on 23–24 June 2011, participation is a must for any global firm looking to supply its services to Russia in the run–up to the World Cup, and for Russian organisations seeking to learn more about the latest in industry expertise.

With an intensive programme covering all aspects of organising a major modern sporting event, the Forum is a unique opportunity to be there as preparations kick off for 2018.
