During the event RHIC Winning Moves, Winning Strategies will focus on guiding delegates through the hotel investment maze in Russia and the CIS.

By joining us at RHIC guests will listen to global leaders reveal where the real opportunities lie in the region; understand the ways in which the political climate and changes in Russia will impact on both local and foreign investors; discover how to work with local partners to develop regional markets and much more.
