Scale model at Lenexpo

Expoforum is the newly built large-scale exhibition and business center in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. It is situated between the city's main Pulkovo Airport and inner-city historically significant Pushkin town formerly known as Tsarskoye Selo.

It is aimed to substitute older and smaller Lenexpo complex built in 1968. It was opened on October 7, 2014 by local governor Poltavchenko[1] and is still under construction.

The complex features 3 helicopter pads and has adjacent Eastern Orthodox church dedicated to Theotokos of Smolensk venerated icon, which is the replica of the older Pulkovskaya church situated here in the past.

It is expected the complex will become the base location for St. Petersburg International Economic Forum instead of older Lenexpo.
